At Hotel Borobudur, the well-being of our guests, colleagues and communities is our top priority. We understand the concern you may be experiencing surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and I, along with my senior leadership team, am committed to transparency and sharing relevant information as the situation changes.
As the coronavirus, COVID-19, impacts Indonesia and continues to spread across the country, we are following the recommendations and guidelines from the experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government and local health authorities. We remain committed to upholding the best practices and have added enhanced protocols to our usual high standards.
Using W.H.O. recommended products that kill the COVID-19 virus, our hotel staff is being extra diligent in sanitizing guest rooms including – bathrooms, door handles, desk table and chairs, light switches and thermostats, telephone and remote, safety latches and locks, exteriors/corridors and common areas. We have enhanced our cleaning protocols to include additional sanitation and cleaning routines. This enhanced cleaning protocol increases the cleaning and sanitization of high-touch areas that affect guests and employees. The high-touch areas are being cleaned and sanitized several times a day. We are taking every measure to keep our guests safe.
We also believe in responsible and safe travel while staying vigilant. We understand the need for increased flexibility with travel planning right now. To help our guests as travel plans change, Hotel Borobudur is providing additional flexibility in our cancellation policies. For stays through April 30, 2020, cancellation fees will be waived at all Hotel Borobudur hotels and any guest wishing to cancel a pre-paid, Advance Purchase reservation, will receive a full refund. Guests who booked on hotelborobudur.com or with a Hotel Borobudur hotel directly can call us at +62 (21) 380 5555 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel their reservation.
For reservations made through a travel agent or 3rd party online booking site (Expedia, Booking.com, Traveloka, etc.), we are advising guests to contact their original booking agent or site for details on their COVID-19 policies.
We continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and are here to assist as needed.
