What does it mean to be awarded one of a handful of Tourism Gold Standard Hotel designations conferred upon Belize properties? Safety and well-being plus perks that keep guests coming back!
When staff members at Belizean Dreams Resort were told that the resort had been designated a coveted Tourism Gold Standard Hotel recipient, nobody was surprised. Having undertaken Herculean measures to revamp health and safety protocols mandated by the government, everyone at the resort agreed that once travel restrictions are eased, they will already be prepared to welcome guests.
Belize’s tourism industry has taken the same hit properties around the world have suffered: A downturn in tourists associated with every aspect of the CORONA pandemic. But resorts like Belizean Dreams are skilled at workarounds, looking at the international lockdown as an opportunity to do a better job of caring for guests by enacting a long list of protections to make sure guests enjoy a worry-free holiday.
What does the Tourism Gold Standard Mean For You?
Having officially passed a rigorous inspection by government officials, that was just the beginning of the safeguards visitors can expect once the international airport opens again for flight arrivals. Earning this designation isn’t the end of the story. Belizean Dreams will be checked regularly by officials eager to make sure that the Gold Standard is maintained so visitors can count on continued vigilance.
Staff continues to follow all facets of the 9-point program established to make sure everyone vacationing at the resort stays safe and enjoys a fun experience despite rigorous restrictions. Among the sweeping changes put into place are minimization of guest interaction with staff and other guests via pick-up/drop-off services from the Hopkins airport and Belizean Dream’s tours that limit the number of participants in the name of safety.
Relax. Every Gold Standard protocol is in place
If you’ve been to Belizean Dreams in the past, you will notice many differences in the way the resort functions the moment you arrive. Social distancing and face mask use are at the top of the list (not to worry, masks don’t have to be worn while swimming, eating and drinking) and every guest is assured of low touch check-in/out and automated booking systems.
Over-the-top efforts to create a tourism safety corridor also include hand sanitizing stations, enhanced room cleaning, public space sanitization measures and daily health checks for guests and employees. Rest assured that Belizean Dreams is fully dedicated to the health and well being of every guest.
Once Belize’s international airport is again welcoming flights, you’ll want to get to Belizean Dreams as fast as possible to start relaxing and enjoying endless recreational benefits. Book in advance to secure your reservation so you have something amazing to look forward to within the safe environment of the resort that cares as much about your safety as it does about your need to escape to paradise!
