THE Senator hotel chain is planning to start reopening its hotels in Spain once regions move into Phase two of the lockdown.

The company has already opened the doors to some tourist apartment complexes, including in Vera Playa.

Senator said it expects to reopen its establishments gradually between May and September once all the necessary health and hygiene procedures to guarantee safety are in place. Some 75 per cent of the openings are expected to be in June and July.

New safety measures will mean changes like encouraging online check-ins to prevent gatherings of people in reception areas, less complementary toiletries in bathrooms, and a person employed to disinfect sunbeds and keep them spaced apart in pool areas.

In restaurants people will be served directly or items will be displayed in individual portions. There will also be controls on dining area occupancy and the space between tables.

In the daily cleans particular attention will be paid to contact points like door knobs and switches.

Once vacated rooms will be completely disinfected and treated with ozone, and they will be left unoccupied for 24 hours.

Senator has hotels and apartments in many different locations across the country, including the Mar Menor, Roquetas de Mar, Almuñecar, Marbella and Madrid.
