Peermont’s flagship property, Emperors Palace Hotel, Casino, Convention and Entertainment Resort, is open for business. Conveniently located next to the O.R. Tambo International Airport, the Palace of Dreams’ reopening is in accordance with provisions as stipulated by the Department of Health (DOH) and World Health Organisation (WHO).
Precautionary measures include, wearing a face mask or shield at all times, daily temperature screening (if a temperature of 37.5ºC and higher is recorded, access will not be permitted), record keeping of guests at entrances, thorough and regular cleaning of all areas and touch points, and the deployment of extra hand sanitiser dispensers to key public areas. The resort’s gaming activities resumed with a limited number of players per table games and alternate slot machines being disabled to ensure adherence to social distancing requirements. To effectively manage capacity, access to the various gaming areas is limited to Winners Circle loyalty members. In addition, protective screens have been placed at all Cash Desks including at the Winners Circle Desk.
“We have been working tirelessly to ensure, every possible measure is in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enters our property. And that is why we have enforced a multi-layered set of protocols and procedures to safeguard the well-being and safety of our guests. Furthermore, our employees have been fully briefed and trained on best practices,” comments Clive Tavener, Complex Operations Executive at Emperors Palace.
The luxurious five-star Peermont D’oreale Grande, one of the resort’s four hotels, is open to business travellers. All hotel rooms have been deep cleaned with utmost care and hygienically sealed, with all non-essential, high touch-point items removed.
