    Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Richmonde Hotel Group have constantly been on high alert to make sure guests and staff are properly protected at all times whenever within the confines of the hotel.

    Throughout the quarantine, management has been carefully preparing for the time when guests will be allowed to travel and visit hotels for leisure.

    Now, as they slowly adapt to the new reality and await guests’ return to Richmonde, the hotel properties, namely Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, and Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, have implemented the Caring Ways, Safer Stays program, which is the brand’s strict system of enhanced safety and sanitation protocols to ensure the comfort and well-being of guests.

    These include rapid testing of hotel staff, screening of guests, rigid house rules for both employees and guests, intensified housekeeping procedures, strict hygiene standards in food preparation, and amendment of accommodation policies, among others.

    While Iloilo City is now ready to welcome back guests, Metro Manila currently remains in general quarantine, limiting guests to foreigners staying since the start of the lockdown last March 17, 2020 or transiting/visiting for a short period, long staying guests, employees of neighboring essential establishments, distressed OFWs, and stranded passengers.

    Since all three properties have passed the DOT inspection and secured the needed certification to accommodate the types of guests allowed, the hotels have put together discount offers to not only jump start the revival of the hospitality industry, but also extend help to Filipinos and foreigners alike, who are in need of a safe sanctuary away from their homes during these troubled times.

    With the reopening of Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, some exciting hotel promotions have been launched to entice the local market in Western Visayas. There is the Twosome Treat promo which is a 2-night or 2-room stay with a room only option at P6,500 (P3,250 per night or room) and an option with plated breakfast for two at P7,000 (P3,750 per night or room).

    The rates are for deluxe room accommodations and include 2 welcome drinks of juice, soda or local beer, and 20 percent discount on food and beverage orders at The Granary and from Room Service. It is available until September 30, 2020.

    For a more leisurely stay, Richmonde Hotel Iloilo has the Staycation Therapy package, available until September 30, 2020. It is priced at P7,000 for a deluxe room with these special inclusions: breakfast, afternoon refreshments, and dinner for two persons, a relaxing in-room massage courtesy of duly accredited professionals from Skinetics Spa Services, plus 20 percent discount on their other services like facial treatments, threading, nail services, and hand & foot massage.
