Mirihi Island Resort offers guests free in-house coronavirus tests
Mirihi Island Resort has introduced in-house coronavirus testing service ahead of its reopening, eliminating the need for guests to travel out of the islands to a testing facility.
The complimentary service has been introduced in response to the most recent requirements from several airlines and countries for travellers to provide a negative PCR test certificate before their journey or entry.
Samples for the PCR test will be taken on the island by an in-house doctor and sent to a laboratory. Results will be emailed to the guest within 48 hours.
Mirihi is reopening on September 15 with enhanced health and safety protocols and with a renewed commitment to the well-being of guests and the team.
“Despite the challenges of Covid-19, we are committed to keeping our island a unique, safe and an intimate slice of paradise. A safe haven for our guests and colleagues, where everyone has confidence in our hygiene standards and our utmost care for their well-being,” an announcement read.
“We have reviewed our existing health and safety protocols and developed new standards. This in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocol is designed to ensure your safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out while our team delivers the unique Mirihi service we have been very proud of.”
Located in the South Ari Atoll, Mirihi is an intimate resort with only 37 rooms, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff. Guests will immediately feel at ease in the safe and beautiful environment.
With sand covered floors throughout much of the hotel, guests can relax upon arrival where they will be encouraged to abandon their shoes and enjoy their stay barefoot with the powder-soft sand between their toes.
Travellers looking to socialise and meet like-minded people can book sunset sailing trips, whale shark safaris, diving trips, visits to local islands, sessions tasting the most comprehensive selection of fine rum in the whole of the Indian Ocean, and can enjoy complimentary weekly beach cinemas, board games, table tennis, football and more.
Alternatively, guests can enjoy some time away from it all in their private water or beach villa, on a secluded beach or while enjoying a pampering spa treatment.
