- Continuous monitoring of well-being of team members by leadership encouraging them to following governmental and WHO guidelines

Food and Beverages

While our existing F&B standards already exceeded the WHO covid prevention standards, we reinforced training and changed a few things.

- F&B staff must wear protective masks, hair net, gloves, and shoe covering inside the kitchen.

- In some cases, meals will be served buffet style but Xinalani's staff will stand behind the table and serve plates while guests stand at distance. 

- Seating distance in dining area will be encouraged.

The rest will be left to our guests' good habits. 

Yoga spaces

- All yoga rooms are cleaned and sanitized before and after practice, allowing some buffer time for cleaning products to dry. 

- Housekeeping staff will pay extra focus on disinfecting high touch areas.

- Each room's capacity will be reduced to ensure sufficient distance between each yogi.

- Yoga teachers will be responsible for the safety of their students and will indicate where to place mats on the floor.

- Each guest will be invited to choose a yoga mat and props and keep them for the length of their retreat. Labels and markers will be made available to identify them. 

- Disinfectant wipes will be freely available in each studio for our guests to clean their equipment.

- Guests will be allowed to keep equipment in guest rooms for their peace of mind.

In the guest rooms

Our housekeepers go the extra mile for our guests' health and safety. We have revisited our cleaning routine and implemented a complete checklist for disinfecting rooms. Learn more about Xinalani's 5 step room cleaning and disinfecting protocol.

A few extra things

We included in each room a complimentary hand sanitizer bottle.

We understand some guests want the ability to clean on their own, we will leave a complimentary cleaning kit at your disposal in each room with sanitizing wipes disinfectant spray, etc. Any additional cleaning item (broom, microfiber cloth, sponge, mop, etc) will be made available upon request, no extra charge.

Please do not hesitate to talk to us about your expectations at any time, we need your feedback and we will always make our best efforts for a safe and enjoyable retreat.

Final Notice

When it comes to sanitizing and disinfecting we do our best to stick to green practices whenever possible.
