As life eases into a new beginning, Makati Shangri-La, Manila is at the forefront of addressing the local market’s desire for a getaway, a quick escape and sense of normalcy for their families, in a safe haven that is not too far from home. The hotel is redefining staycations by finding the balance between safety and leisure. With combined safety protocols and exciting activities in place, Makati Shangri-La introduces the Wonderful Family Getaway package that is absolutely Staycation-Ready, Safe and a Go.
The new way of life requires heightened safety measures and sanitation everywhere. Makati Shangri-La has embraced a set of safety standards so that guests can enjoy what truly matters while staying at the hotel. The five-star property of the Shangri-La Group in Makati is one of the first hotels to be awarded a Certificate of Authority to Operate for Staycations (CAOS) by the Department of Tourism (DOT). The DOT has set guidelines and stringent protocols that must be followed by both the guest and the operator. Proper and accurate filing of health declaration forms, and the presentation of a negative-result antigen test that needs to have been conducted on the same day of their check-in, are just a few of the mandatory safety protocols required of leisure/staycation guests.
During the course of the community quarantine, Makati Shangri-La aligned its hygiene protocols with the WHO recommendations, as well as more stringent local regulations set out by the Philippine government so that guests feel totally at ease when staying at or visiting Makati Shangri-La. In June, the Group introduced the “Shangri-La Cares” commitment elevating their already rigorous hygiene and safety protocols for all properties worldwide.
