JOHOR BAHRU, 10 July 2020:
Desaru Coast Resort is fully prepared to welcome tourists post Covid-19 pandemic by offering a wide range of holiday packages and the best services to its clientele.
Desaru Development Holdings One Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Roslina Arbak said the confidence to receive tourists again stems from the implementation of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in relation to health and safety control measures following government’s directives at the resort.
The SOPs include controlling the entry of guests by conducting temperature checks, requiring the wearing of face masks, the usage of hand sanitisers and practising social distancing.
Resort workers are also trained to familiarise themselves with the new normal operations in every department.
“The introduction of the change in working culture was essential to harness social responsibility to protect workers, guests and the community.”
Roslina said many people are planning their holidays and tourism activities with their families in line with the government’s move to allow tourism activities to continue through its ‘ Revitalise Domestic Tourism’ campaign.
However, they were cautious about choosing their travel destinations as they assessed the safety of the SOPs of the travel destination before deciding.
“At Desaru Coast we prioritise the health and safety of our workers, guests and destination. We will swiftly report to the authorities if they are any COVID-19 cases in our resort so that it can be addressed appropriately.”
Roslina also said the resort is offering two packages to its guests – namely Sun-tastic Getaway and Golf [email protected] Coast in conjunction with its ‘Dont’t Join The Crowd’ campaign. Both packages offer savings of up to 60%.
The Sun-tastic Getaway package begins at RM689 for two days and one night stay for two adults and two children involving a number of interesting activities around Desaru and could be used at three premium hotels namely Hard Rock Hotel, The Westin and Anantara
Meanwhile, the Golf Galore @ Desaru Coast package which began at RM799 is for two days and one night stay. This package includes accommodation at the hotel and unlimited access to play golf at The Els Club Desaru Coast Ocean Course.
The duration to purchase the packages is until Sept 30 and the holiday period is till Dec 23.
Roslina added that besides the packages, the resort also provided a list of non-contact sporting activities and education programmes which were based on entertainment.
“This included nature-based programmes which involved visits to fruit orchards, the experience of driving an All-Terrain Vehicle and to explore the mangrove swamps at Panti Forest.”
