According to the company, its Platinum Protocols of Cleanliness will guarantee guests can enjoy their vacation with utmost confidence, from arrival to departure at all Sandals and Beaches resorts.

“We want our guests to not have to worry about a thing so they can enjoy the Luxury Included vacation they’ve trusted in time and time again.”
He said: “We’re doing everything we can to offer peace of mind during a time that has been difficult for the entire world, and that is why we have continued to evolve our protocols to maintain an even safer, healthier stay.”
Sandals Platinum Protocols of Cleanliness will include several pre-emptive cleanliness measures that safeguard the guest journey from arrival to departure, including additional health and well-being requirements across all points of contact on resort.
Those measures and enhanced protocols will take effect across all fifteen Sandals Resorts and three Beaches Resorts.
