The luxury experience at Wyndham Grand Kalim Bay starts with
a personal transfer in a Mercedes, with the chauffeur wearing face mask and
gloves. Guests undergo a mandatory temperature check on arrival before being
driven to their suite for check-in. This system bypasses all the public areas
of the resort and ensures you are virtually isolated.
Suites and villas all have their own pools eliminating the
need to visit the pool open to all guests. Suites have their individual
airconditioning units meaning there is no cross-contamination of air between
suites and villas further reducing the risk of Covid-19 infection. There is no
need to meet anyone as a digital concierge service (HandiGo app) enables guests
to easily make requests without having to interact or visit common spaces.
In-room dining is possible as the menus at all of the resort’s restaurants are
available to guests who want to avoid visits to the restaurants.
“Guests can enjoy the full resort experience while
minimising contact with others,” the resort’s reopening publicity claims.
Wyndham Grand Kalim Bay received along with hundreds of other
hotels in Phuket an Amazing Thailand Safety & Health Administration
certificate, designed to give assurance about safety and sanitation processes
