We have taken every possible measure to ensure resort safety, aligning our practices as per government regulations. However, we’d still recommend that families read up on travel restrictions posed by the state and central government before commencing their journey to a Club Mahindra resort. Being as informed as possible goes a long way in enabling a smooth and stress-free trip.
The Covid-19 pandemic has seen immunisation rates falling drastically, especially in young children. As such, it is imperative for families to consult with their local physician before even considering traveling. It would be advisable to go in for a regular health check-up and also be cautioned on the specific safety precautions to take. While you might be safe from the Corona virus, it doesn’t mean you’re immune to other ailments such as malaria or the common flu.
It should be noted that elderly people and people with underlying health conditions should limit their travelling. When consulting your physician, make sure to enquire about individual risk status as well as the best course of action for family members who are suffering from certain ailments such as asthma or heart disease. Note, a safe status on the Arogya Setu app is a prerequisite for anyone entering the resort.
Although air travel has resumed in India, it would be in your family’s best interest to drive down to one of our properties. It’s a safer option, and a lot of fun too. If you’re from Mumbai, you may embark on a road-trip to Hatgad. Families from Bangalore may travel to Coorg, while those from Delhi may journey to Mussoorie. During your stay, you may contact the Travel Desk on +91 9845180726 to avail of transport facilities on a chargeable basis.
You must carry government ID (except PAN card) for all occupants, along with the booking confirmation vouchers. For kids below 12 years of age, school ID is also valid. If the direct dependent of the member is travelling, relation proof is needed. Additionally, foreign nationals should carry a valid passport and visa.
Yes, we follow the highest degree of hotel safety, and have stock of personal protective equipment. With that being said, families should always carry their own pandemic essentials kit with them. This should include masks, protective covers, gloves, hand sanitisers, visors, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray, and a small medical kit.
When you’re travelling with small children, especially during this unprecedented time, it’s important that they are aware of the situation and best prepared to deal with it. Which means, explaining to them the concept of physical distancing, hand washing, and wearing a mask. Lead by example, and gently nudge them in the right direction. They will respond to guidance. Don’t panic if they make a mistake, but always be ready with a contingency plan.
As Club Mahindra members, you will have access to a wide variety of exciting and adventurous outdoor activities. Explore nature, rather than sight-seeing at museums, temples or art galleries (most of which will be closed). The former is a much safer option as you can maintain a safe distance from others. It goes without saying, don’t even contemplate visiting Covid-19 hotspots.
We have adopted the latest technology and partnered with the best, to ensure you have access to the most reliable health standards and safety protocols. So, make use of the facilities and layouts designed to reflect hotel safety. For detailed information, you can go through Resort Safety Guidelines which contain do’s, don’ts and FAQs.
