Kanika Covid-19 Protocols – Your Health is our Commitment


At Kanika Hotels and Resorts, our number one priority is the well-being, health and safety of our guests and employees. In order to secure that, we have set-up new operating procedures and guidelines, including a responsible plan regarding the exposure and prevention of the COVID-19 spread. These will be implemented across all of Kanika Hotels & Resorts in order to make our guests feel safe while staying or visiting our hotels.

To prevent COVID-19 spread, all of our employees and guests will be screened for body temperature and sign-up prior to entry. Sanitizing stations will also be available at hotel’s main entrance, back of house entrance, buffet restaurant entrance and other public areas (indoors and outdoors).


The designated points of screening for the policy are:

  • Hotel entrance (for hotel guests, associates, colleagues)

Check In/Check Out Process

  • Porters will advise arriving guests that their luggage will be disinfected.
  • Payment at check-out will be performed by contactless card payment.

Guest Rooms

  • Extra pillows in the closet will be wrapped and sealed
  • Promotional material (ie. room service menu, spa menu) will be displayed electronically.

Guests’ Rooms daily service & turn down service

  • All rooms will be disinfected.
  • The mini bar will be kept empty and guests will order through the minibar menu any items they want in order to minimize the daily check from the minibar attendant. All items will be charged as per the order by Room Service.
  • For All-inclusive hotels mini-fridges will remain as they are but with each guest change over the items will be disinfected.

Note: There will be a 2-hour time lap between departure and new arrival in every room


Public Areas

All public areas (ie. Public WC, Lobby, Restaurants & Bars, Gym) will be cleaned and disinfected frequently every hour until 11 PM.


Kids Club

  • Parents are not allowed to enter the kids’ club but a member of the staff can register the child at the entrance.
  • Social distance regulations at the kids’ clubs are 1 child per 3 square meters and children will keep 2 meters apart.
  • The Kids’ club will be disinfected daily, toys that are not washable will be removed from the kids’ club, toys will be manually disinfected and cleaned with spray after every use.
  • Crèche will remain closed for health and safety reasons.

Note: Kanika Hotels & Resorts follow the Government’s Health & Hygiene Protocols and Regulation guidelines,  which are subject to change at a moment’s notice. The Hotel’s management reserves the right to adjust daily operation at its own discretion aligning with the covid mandates. This includes opening/closing hours of outlets, rotation sequence of culinary schedule, and others always with the best intentions of the health and welfare of our guests and employees.

In the unlikely event, a guest tests positive for COVID-19, the Cyprus government will provide a dedicated quarantine hotel, as well as to the persons deemed as close contacts of persons who test positive for coronavirus.
