Go Natural is situated in a small private Bay, far away from cities and busy areas, surrounded by the healing NATURE.
Our teams are receiving ongoing training, briefings, and enhanced operating protocols.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (such as our lobby, spa, door handles, public bathrooms.)
We have increased the deployment of antibacterial hand sanitizers.
We will NOT be providing any yoga blankets or yoga mats until this situation is over.
We are taking measures to remind our guests to wash their hands. In the spaces where our team works “behind the scenes,” we are increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like associate entrances, locker rooms, laundry rooms, and staff offices.
Our team is committed and focussed on the cleanliness and prevention of our resort.
