COVID SAFE PLAN
It is our priority to keep all guests COVID safe and informed
WE ARE READY, ARE YOU? PROGRAMME
Here at Aquarius Gold Coast, your health, safety and well-being are our number one priority outside of having fun.
Under The Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organisation’s recommendations, our "We are ready, are you?” programme builds on our already impeccably high standards of cleanliness to deliver the highest level of sanitation throughout guest rooms and common areas. This is to ensure that we are providing you with a safe place to be before, during and after your stay with us.
We want to re-assure you that we are doing everything we can to protect our guests and staff. We have introduced a range of cleaning protocols, in addition to our already thorough processes, so that you can enjoy a safe and stress-free stay with us. These include but are not limited to:
Additional disinfecting protocols in our guest rooms, after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with increased attention paid to hard and high-touch surfaces.
Increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in our public areas.
Hand sanitiser dispensers for your use in every common area as well as upon entry.
