Anantaya Resort & Spa Chilaw, owned and managed by LAUGFS Leisure Ltd., has recently become the 1st resort in Sri Lanka to receive the Sri Lanka Standard (SLS) 1672:2020 certification from the Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI) for COVID-19 Safety Management Systems.
An SLSI certification for COVID-19 Safety Management Systems demonstrates an organisation’s dedication towards achieving the highest standards of safety and sanitisation across all operations, including internal processes as well as outsourced activities.
In its uncompromising standards for guest and staff safety, Anantaya Chilaw has established a wide variety of safety measures across its entire resort. It has redesigned its guest check-in and check-out process to allow for socially distanced and sanitary interaction without the need for close physical contact. Staff have been trained with strict guidelines and procedures to follow on a daily basis, including sanitary handling of room service, serving guest requirements and handling of guest belongings. This training extends to all activities across the resort, including restaurant, cleaning and maintenance staff for maximum security.
Readily available sanitisation and washing stations have also been installed across multiple easy-to-access locations for the convenience of guests and the pool is regularly disinfected with a specially designed solution.
Commenting on the achievement, LAUGFS Leisure Ltd. Director/Chief Executive Officer Roshan R. Perera said, “We are very pleased to have received the SLS 1672:2020 certification as an indicator of our rigorous compliance to health and safety standards. We believe that it is our responsibility to protect the health of our guests and staff at all times and we have introduced extensive safety measures to accomplish this. Our staff at Anantaya Chilaw will continue to work tirelessly towards welcoming our guests with safety and peace of mind for the entire duration of their stay, to live up to the trust that they place in us.”
