Our Cleanliness Commitment

Daydream Island Resort prides itself on taking care of our guests, staff, and community and we are doing everything we can to ensure the wellbeing, health and safety of our guests and team members. We will continue to deliver our high standards of cleanliness and hygiene throughout the Resort along with additional preventative cleaning measures to minimize the risk of any transmission.

We have elevated our cleanliness processes throughout the Island, and we will be using hospital-grade disinfectants recommended and supplied by Ecolab, a global leader in hygiene technologies and service, with increased cleaning of public areas and our accommodation rooms. We will also be adjusting our food and beverage operations to ensure the highest level of hygiene standards and enforcing social distancing measures.

We are undertaking the following measures to maintain a healthy environment:

  • Individual guest amenity cleaning kits and personal-use sanitizer/wipes for guests
  • Visible sanitizer stations in all high traffic public areas and back of house spaces
  • Reinforcement of personal hygiene, proper handwashing and use of hand sanitizers
  • New operating procedures to integrate social distancing signage and signals
  • Reduced contact and physical interaction at check-in and check-out
  • Encourage touchless transactions for all payments throughout the Resort
  • Increased cleaning schedules with elevated sanitization of all common areas and high touch surfaces
  • Implementation of various social distance guidelines within all public spaces
  • Operational changes to food & beverage standards and service protocols
