OxoHotel properties located in Cartagena de Indias, Santa Marta, Bogotá, Barranquilla, Bucaramanga, Quibdó (Chocó) and Albania (Guajira) have “Certified Check-in” from MinComercio and “Safe Travels” from WTTC
oxoHotel, a company specialized in the conceptualization, development and operation of multi-brand and multi-segment accommodation, received in a small symbolic event held at the Courtyard by Marriott Bogotá Airport, the certification of eleven of its properties in seven destinations in Colombia, which obtained the “ Certified Check-In, Covid-19 bioseguro ”from the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, delivered by SGS and also the“ Safe Travels ”seal from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).
In addition to having these new accreditations, all oxoHotel properties already had the oxoHotel “Safe Stay” seal, under which the establishments offer totally reliable and biosecure services, spaces and experiences.
The new certifications issued by MinComercio and WTTC were achieved thanks to an intense joint work to offer conditions for the implementation and application of the biosafety protocols issued by the National Government and by other local, regional and world authorities.
"These accreditations highlight our permanent desire to reactivate the Colombian economy around tourism and the hotel industry," said Carlos Arturo Quesada, director of operations of oxoHotel. "In addition, we are generating confidence in travelers, making them understand that our hotels comply with completeness with the most rigorous biosafety protocols in the world ”.
The “Check in Certified, Covid-19 bioseguro” seal is a certification created by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, with the support of ProColombia and Icontec, and backed by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), whose main objectives to generate trust among travelers and consumers, minimize the risks of contagion of the virus and encourage tourism in the country.
For its part, the “Safe Travels” certification was developed by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) to help restore confidence in travelers and work to reactivate the travel and tourism sector globally.
“The pandemic has surprised us all, but the speed of reaction at oxoHotel was very important. Thanks to teamwork and the work of the leaders (clean champion), to assure our guests in the different properties the tranquility that our spaces are completely bio-safe and sanitized ”, adds Quesada.
Both stamps allow travelers to recognize tourism service providers, hotels and destinations that have adopted standardized health and hygiene protocols so that they can experience safe travel.
