LATEST SUMMARY OF HOTEL RESTRICTIONS/LAWS

(per 5th June, 2021 - subject to change in the coming weeks):

 

 INDOOR DINING           (Sat, 5th June for Residents, 5th of July for all)

·        We will have 2m between the outer edge of each group.

·        There is no time limit when we have a 2m rule. Otherwise, a 105min limit would have to apply.

·        Our Policy: We will take up to 6 people in total per booking inside. The law allows us to take up to 15 [6ad+9ch] but we wouldn’t have the capacity.

 

OUTDOOR DINING        (starts Monday, 7th June)

·        ANY BOOKING FOR A NON-RESIDENT BEFORE JULY 5th  =  OUTDOORS

·        We will have at least 1m between the outer edge of each group.

·        There is no time limit.

The law allows us to take up to 15 [6ad+9ch] but we wouldn’t have this capacity. We cannot subdivide a large group between different tables as the guidelines point out that this will result in inevitable mixing between tables.

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE NOT A SELF-ISOLATION OR RESTRICTED MOVEMENT FACILITY.

For the health of our employees, their families, and other guests, we reserve the right to not operate as an isolation / restricted movement / quarantine facility. 

Any guests with bookings that involve travel from a country that is not on the "Green Travel List" will be asked to provide evidence that they have isolated for 14 days prior to the check-in date.

If no evidence can be provided, we will request that the booking be cancelled on health and safety grounds. We also reserve the right to not accept bookings on a walk-in basis where ID or travel documentation cannot be shown or where common courtesy is not shown to front-line staff who are doing their best to implement guidelines and laws that are not of their creation. We ask everyone to please be kind and patience with businesses during this difficult time.      

The “Green List” is formulated based on cases per 100,000 of population in the last 14 days, as well as areas with high incidence of new Covid strains.

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cover your face if you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Keep surfaces clean.
