Reethi Faru rolls out safety measures for post-coronavirus travel
Reethi Faru has implemented new safety measures, in a bid to prepare for the resort’s reopening once the coronavirus related travel restrictions are lifted.
The new measures are built on Reethi Faru’s existing high standards, and follow the guidance of World Health Organisation and the national Health Protection Agency (HPA).
The resort has already implemented these measures:
- Enhanced hygiene measures
- Enhanced sanitation measures throughout all public areas, including reception, lobbies, fitness centre, pool areas and guest rooms
- Social distancing measures for all employees to follow
- Fogging of electrostatic spray technology in all areas
- Monitored entry and exit of all individuals with temperature recordings
- Personalised in-room check-in for guests
- Daily disinfection of rooms and common areas
- Limited contact, social distancing and private experiences during guest stay
“We are hopeful that this situation is not permanent but assure you that you will be safe in our resort whether you work or stay here,” an announcement read.
On April 16, Reethi Faru bid farewell to its last guests before the closure. The resort hopes to reopen in the latter part of the year.
The four-star plus Reethi Faru resort, developed on the remote island of Filaidhoo in the northern Raa atoll, can be reached by a scenic 45-minute seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport or a 20-minute domestic flight to Dharavandhoo domestic airport followed by a 30-minute speedboat ride.
The island, which measures 600 by 350 metres, offers 150 well-furnished, homely and spacious detached and semi-detached villas built in traditional style and that blend perfectly with the natural beauty of the environment. The unique setting – amid tropical foliage, fringing a long expanse of powder soft beach or on stilts over the clear blue lagoon – will make every guest wish to stay on and on.
Reethi Faru, which means Beautiful Reef in local Dhivehi language, has numerous restaurants to cater for everybody’s tastes, while its poolside bar and beachfront bar invite guests to linger.
Along with a stunning white sand beach, a house reef just 30 to 80 metres from shore, coconut palm groves and lush vegetation, the resort offers a wide range of recreational facilities, including diving, water sports, tennis, squash, badminton, a gym, an aerobic room as well as a spa to pamper your body and soul.
Reethi Faru is owned and operated by Mahogany Pvt Ltd, the company that earlier operated the four-star Reethi Beach Resort in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa atoll.
