Jamaica's largest hotel, Grand Palladium Resorts in Lucea, Hanover, is set to reopen on July 10, after shuttering its operations due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Grand Palladium is expected to benefit from a partnership between Palladium Hotel Group and SGS, a company that specialises in the certification and implementation of a new safety and welfare protocol.

Palladium Hotel Group said it has created a protocol with SGS that will ensure that its 48 properties in the Americas and in Europe will be able to safely welcome travellers when the hotels reopen.

Jamaica reopened its borders to international visitors for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic on Monday, June 15.

All arriving visitors are required to undergo a temperature check and follow local safety protocols, which include face-coverings and social distancing.

According to an article in Travel Pulse, Raul Benito, chief operating officer of the Palladium Hotel Group, stressed that "during our 50 years of history, our highest priority has been people and we have always striven to preserve their well-being."

"For this reason, in these moments in which it is key to quickly adapt to the new reality that surrounds us and is necessary to generate trust, we have launched this new hygienic-sanitary protocol in collaboration with a leading company such as SGS with the aim of offering full health and safety guarantees for both our collaborators and clients so that they, in turn, can continue to enjoy a stay full of wonderful experiences,” Benito is quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Alejandro Gonzalez, managing director of SGS Spain expressed that his company's track record in the hospitality sector positions them to offer protection to guests and workers.

"Given this triple crisis that we are facing: health, economic and trust, the role of SGS as an independent third party and our experience in the tourism sector allows us to offer a first-class service to guarantee that the highest health and hygiene standards are met to protect both guests and employees," Gonzalez is quoted in Travel Pulse as saying.

The Palladium Hotel Group said it has committed to equipping its hotels with the best technology.

It company plans to encourage customers to check-in and check-out online and to promote the use of digital information via applications, hotel website and television.

In July of 2008, two brand new resorts were inaugurated in Jamaica: the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa and the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa.

These two new resorts, situated only 25 minutes from the Montego Bay airport, offer a wide variety of facilities and services for all ages.
