The Olympia and Olympia Sky complexes are opening their doors

first_imgAs we know, the Government of the Republic of Croatia has made a decision that in the third phase of easing the measures (May 11), the operation of catering facilities in accommodation facilities will be allowed, but only for accommodation users. Formally, hotels have not been banned so far, but of course in a situation where tourism has stopped and everyone is in self-isolation, it is logical that hotels are closed because they have no one to be open to. One part of the hotel is being prepared and plans to reopen. Although it is not yet known when the borders will open, the hotels will be ready. And so is the Olympia and Olympia Sky hotel complex, which opens its doors on May 11, 2020, with the implementation of all recommended measures. “As soon as the Government gives the green light to open, we are ready! Since the beginning of the pandemic, our entire team is in operation and we are preparing for the opening. We have established a crisis team that monitors decisions and special measures, so we are adapting to that. Our guests will feel safe! ” says the hotel manager Darko Bastić and adds that even in these new times that no one hoped for, the hotel’s mission is to provide every guest with the best possible service and an unforgettable vacation.  “Due to the crisis, we have provided our guests with flexible booking cancellation conditions, we have created a new website, we are in constant contact with our guests. We regularly receive messages about holiday memories from our hotel and inquiries about our plans. When we posted the notice of the reopening of the hotel, messages were just arriving! It was very important for us to keep in touch with our guests, and I think we succeeded in that, because in June, despite everything, we have booked 6.000 overnight stays ”Concludes Bastić. Although the decisions and recommendations of the General Staff for the tourism sector are still pending, regarding the functioning of catering facilities and accommodation facilities (they will know everything exactly next week), everyone hopes that they will not be too complicated and that the facilities will be able to adapt quickly.center_img It is unusual to walk through the empty corridor of the hotel, but we try and get the best out of everything, Bastić points out and emphasizes that their primary goal was to protect as many jobs as possible, and to be ready to return to normal. “In recent months, we have refreshed the hotel, worked on a large scale, prepared and tried new gastronomic delights. We are known to have placed an important emphasis on domestic products from the very beginning of our business, which in this crisis has additionally proved to be a smart decision. Borders can be closed, but it will always be possible to find quality food with us because we procure everything from our local producers and fishermen who just give a point on every dish.” When asked about the interest from foreign markets, Bastić points out that they were in constant contact with all partners, and when they were informed about the opening of the hotel, that the reactions were more than positive. And this is proved by the fact that they have a confirmation of over 6.000 overnight stays for June. No one wants to go on vacation and feel like they have wandered into a hospital or pharmacy, so accordingly the hotel complex Olympia and Olympia Sky will work with 50% of the accommodation capacity to be able to provide each guest with maximum comfort with the prescribed measures. last_img read more
