Learned processes including social distancing, the addition of numerous hand sanitizers throughout the resort and the utilization of cleaning solutions and have already been implemented.  Furthermore, the resort staff has gone through extensive training to ensure that every interaction that takes place, is one that has safety in mind.

  • Hand sanitizers are strategically located throughout the resort and club operations.

Physical Distancing:

Taking into consideration how social distancing will impact your meetings and events, the resort Convention Services and Catering staff has created new guidelines based on the number of attendees.  The established guidelines and protocol further enhance the approach that has been taken to ensure the safety of our guests and staff.
