Samujana, a secluded luxury villa estate based on the Thai island of Koh Samui, is among the earliest hospitality businesses to successfully respond to the challenges of traveling during the COVID-19 era, and the property provides a blueprint of what is to come for hoteliers all around the world. Koh Samui Airport (code: USM) has resumed flights from May 15th, and Bangkok Airways in conjunction with the Airport, have put in place efficient precautionary measures to ensure a safe, and a relatively seamless travel experience. These measures combined with Samujana’s commitment to cleanliness, make Samujana and Koh Samui, the perfect place for a villa vacation.
Commitment to Cleanliness
Samujana checks the temperature of all staff, and guests checking in or entering the resort.
Masks and hand sanitizer
Samujana provides masks and hand sanitizer for self service use for all our guests (including in all villas and in the private villa common areas). Masks are mandatory for Samujana employees, and our staff also wear gloves when servicing the villas.
Health and Hygiene Manager
Samujana is committed to the cleanliness and safety of our guests and our employees. We have appointed a new Health And Hygiene Manager role, responsible for the implementation of and ongoing execution of our cleanliness commitment.
A term that we all have become familiar with in the wake of the global pandemic, and governments all over the world have looked to quickly implement social distancing strategies. At Samujana, social distancing is nothing new, but they are now enforcing stricter policies that include a contactless service by utilising Portier Phones, the property’s guests have always benefited from the notion of “so far but yet so close” via Portier Technologies’ ability to boost contactless service. In that sense, guests can always stay in touch with their villa hosts, and can call them, chat with them and request help or access to on-site services from a single place. This ensures a strong connection between staff and guests, without the need for physical proximity.
