Meetings and events taking place at The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok, can expect to pay the standard venue rates even as layouts are set in accordance to new social distancing and stringent hygiene measures.
Under the new setup, each function space will only be able to accommodate approximately half the usual guest numbers.
New health and safety setups at the hotel includes temperature sensors, hygiene measures and crowd control designed for larger-scale events and groups, as well as enhanced hygiene considerations taken during F&B service such as the use of sanitary screens at the buffets and formalised arrangements for coffee breaks.
The Athenee Hotel has been recognised for all of the preventive measures and protocols undertaken during the pandemic, being the first hotel in Thailand to achieve the Safety & Health certification, which is endorsed by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. The hotel has also been certified by the Ministry of Public Health for its approach to the care of its guests.
Operator Marriott International has recently announced its Commitment to Clean initiative and the formation of a Cleanliness Council to drive new innovations and protocols.
