The Best Western Plus The Beachfront Hotel in Phuket, developed by one of the leading real estate developers in Thailand Blue Horizon Developments, has been taking strict measures to increase travelers’ safety.
Claude Baltes, the hotel’s General Manager points out that “at Best Western Plus The Beachfront Hotel, we have always practiced high standards of hygiene and cleanliness, and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have now taken our commitment to travelers’ safety up a notch”.
Best Western Plus The Beachfront Hotel has recently received the COVID-READY Certificate by Hotel Resilient, the world’s only scientific benchmarking and certification body for disaster risk management and climate change adaptation of hotels and resorts. The certification is based on the verification of key documents and is awarded to hotels and resorts that pass with a promising score of 80% or above.
“After being certified COVID-READY, we now have peace of mind knowing that our hard work and efforts have essentially been a step in the right direction,” said Baltes. “We are confident that we can provide a high level of safety our guests deserve.”
With the following guidelines in place, our hotel welcomes you with a clean and safe environment:

2. Hand sanitizing stations
To increase personal hygiene, there are plenty of hand sanitizing stations around the hotel, and by each surface that is frequently touched (buttons, front desk, etc).
