Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts Launches SAFE SANCTUARY,

an Integrated Health and Well-Being Programme Globally

Singapore, 21 May 2020 – In preparation for the return of travel, Banyan Tree Group is committed to going the extra mile to ensure a Safe Sanctuary for both associates and guests. Partnering with Bureau Veritas to co-develop a proprietary label and set of protocols, the Group is launching the SafeSanctuary Programme, an integrated health and well-being programme that incorporates protocols of assurance and well-being standards. This will be rolled out progressively from June 2020 throughout all properties.

The SafeSanctuary Seal demonstrates the rigor of Protect, Provide and Prevent, to assure all guests and associates of the Group’s enhanced health and safety measures at all guest touch points as they plan, book and stay with us. This programme has over 40 areas of enhanced protocols, including screening procedures, hygiene stations, and redesigned processes throughout the guest and associate experience.

Dear Valued Guest,

Banyan Tree Mayakoba has been undergoing exciting enhancements. On December 2020, our new Beachfront Suites will be ready, just steps away from the blue turquoise waters, in addition to a bigger Sands Beach Club, to include an expanded oceanfront pool, an all-day-dining indoor and outdoor restaurant, a Raw Bar, a new Kid's Club with a pool and ocean-view Spa facilities. In Spring 2021, new over-the-water villas will be part of our inventory with astonishing views of the Riviera Maya sunsets.

Your experience will not be affected as all facilities such as the Banyan Tree Spa, Reflections Pool and our celebrated restaurants and bars including Saffron, The Tomahawk Den, Cello and HAAB continue to operate normally.

To add to the exciting happenings, we have a new and chic Beach Club – The Shack – featuring two oceanfront pools and a barefoot fresh seafood restaurant right on the beach. We look forward to these exciting additions to our resort. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
