These days, traveling requires due diligence and effective planning. With health and safety as tourism’s reigning supreme, entry requirements can leave little to spontaneity. However, if your departing flight out of Belize is rescheduled, or your arrival screening process delays you to overnight in Belize City, the Radisson Ft. George Hotel & Marina is aiming to meet global standards for cleanliness. Once the airport reopens in Belize, hotels will also reopen in a phased approach. While a list of Gold Standard Recognized Hotels is expected on www.travelbelize.org in the coming weeks, the Radisson Ft. George plans to meet all the certification criteria. So if you’re delayed in Belize City before departing for your final destination, the Radisson Ft. George Hotel & Marina is preparing for you.
Belize’s First Phase of Hotels Reopening
The first grouping of hotels that will be allowed to open include properties in Belize that:
- have achieved the Tourism Gold Standard Certificate of Recognition, and
- provide full service to guests. This means that these hotels are able to provide all amenities, so as to contain the guest on the property, and minimize opportunities for guest interaction within the local community. These amenities include having transportation to offer pick-up/drop-off services from the airport; access to a restaurant on the property; have a pool or access to beachfront; and be able to provide isolated tours, limited to guests of the property only.
In addition, the Belize Tourism Board confirms you can then book a room in Belize City for your layover with ease, as long as it is a recognized Gold Standard Hotel. Arrangements must similarly be made to transfer from the international airport to the hotel in the City, as well as for onward transfer to your final destination.
A Global Clean, verified by SGS
As a brand, Radisson Hotels holds the health, safety, and security of our guests, team members, and business partners as its highest priority. Besides, the same goes for Belize City’s Radisson Ft. George Hotel & Marina. Given COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way we live, Radisson has adjusted daily operations accordingly. As such, a new in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocol was created in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. Designed to ensure the safety and peace of mind of guests from check-in to check out, the Radisson is an ideal option to layover in Belize City.
Under this SGS program, individual hotel brands that comply with protocols can receive an official label of cleanliness and disinfection, issued by SGS, upon completion of a comprehensive local audit.
Radisson’s New 20-step Protocol
Not to mention, a new 20-step protocol for hotels and a 10-step protocol for meeting and event spaces is currently being introduced at all Radisson Hotels. That includes new cleaning and disinfection procedures; increased attention to safety in communal spaces, protective equipment; and updated training for team members are included in the new protocols. All worldwide locations are being briefed on these protocols and strongly encouraged to implement them, including Belize. These protocols describe specific processes and measures that are designed to make you feel confident when you visit.
