Baha Mar revealed in a statement yesterday that it will provide private jet service back to the United States or a complimentary 14-day stay for guests who test positive for COVID-19 before their expected departure, through its Travel with Confidence program.
The company noted in the statement that it is the “first and only resort” to provide this service to its guests.
“Baha Mar’s Travel with Confidence program pledges that should a resort guest test positive during their stay, Baha Mar will provide courtesy suite accommodations and a daily dining credit of $150 per person per day, for up to 14 days in quarantine,” the statement revealed.
“Most importantly, should the guest need to return to the United States earlier, Baha Mar will provide private air travel to return the guest and their immediate family to the US free of charge.”
Baha Mar’s President Graeme Davis said in the statement that the goal of the program is to alleviate travelers’ concerns about COVID-19.
“Our Travel with Confidence program is the first of its kind in the industry, providing travelers with added peace of mind and the option to safely return home, or quarantine at no added expense, the choice is theirs,” Davis said.
The COVID-19 health insurance, which has to be purchased by everyone entering the country, includes quarantine expense money of $500 per day (up to $47,000) and medical evacuation should the person choose it. It also includes coverage for medical expenses incurred on island due to COVID-19, of up to $50,000.
Baha Mar already includes complimentary on-site rapid antigen tests for its arriving and departing guests.
Baha Mar continues to tout its strict safety protocols on the property to protect guests and staff from virus transmission, which includes “mandatory mask-wearing in public areas, social distancing and stringent cleanliness protocols that go above and beyond Baha Mar’s already rigorous cleaning standards, covering all brands across Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood Baha Mar”, the statement noted.
“Additionally, resort standards include weekly COVID-19 testing for associates, enhanced housekeeping and engineering services, heightened food safety and digital ordering, touchless payments and technology methods that allow for an abundance of contactless experiences from the moment guests check in.”
