Between keeping up with ever-changing travel restrictions and safety guidelines in the new normal, choosing the right hotel in the Philippines can be quite the challenge. “What’s the difference between a hotel for quarantine and for leisure?” “How many people are allowed to undergo quarantine in one room?” “Are families allowed to quarantine together?”

Step inside the “Circle of Clean” and let your pandemic worries drift away
From the moment you enter your hotel to the day of your departure, Robinsons Hotels & Resorts follows a rigorous set of health and sanitation measures called the “Circle of Clean” — a heightened standard of cleaning and sanitation protocols recommended by the World Health Organization and the Department of Health.
To protect guests and employees, the Circle of Clean’s safety measures include mandatory temperature checks, physical distancing markers, hourly disinfection of contact surfaces, a seamless online check-in process, luggage disinfection upon arrival and departure, sanitiser stations at high-touch points throughout the hotels, and more.
Above all, the Robinsons Hotels & Resorts group promotes warm and gracious hospitality to bring you the relaxing stay that you deserve.
All hotel and resort staff are fully vaccinated and prepared to welcome guests in personal protective equipment (PPE). What’s more, they’ve worked hard to complete the necessary “Signature Circle of Clean Training” on COVID-19 protocols that include physical distancing, food safety and hygiene, and the proper way to wear PPEs.

Classifications of Robinsons Hotels & Resorts in the new normal
1. Quarantine hotels
Quarantine hotels refer to accommodations that can host and serve the following guests: returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs); stranded and incoming foreign travellers; essential workers; individuals who opt to or need to undergo mandatory quarantine; and lastly, health and emergency frontline services workers who require close access to their workplace.
All common areas and facilities (gyms, dining areas, function rooms) in quarantine hotels are not operational in order to minimise contact between guests.
Take note that quarantine hotels are strictly single occupancy and they follow a one-room-one-person policy.
This rule applies to all guests except for those who are 18 years old and below; families who are travelling together and belong to the same household; health and emergency frontline workers; or individuals requiring special assistance, including senior citizens, persons with disabilities (PWD), and those with chronic medical illness.
Note: Rates are subject to room availability and IATF guidelines and may change without prior notice. In addition, Robinsons Hotels & Resorts reserves the right to refuse a guest entry if their purpose of travel is for leisure or deemed non-essential.
