A Relaxing Quarantine During Your Holiday to Sri Lanka at Santani Resort

It’s been over a year since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and although things seem to be improving with the distribution of vaccines and a higher understanding of the virus, safety precautions must still be taken. One of the biggest industries that were affected by the pandemic is tourism.

Countries closed their borders for tourists in order to control the spread and even after many months once the borders reopened, some countries made it mandatory for tourists to spend 2 weeks in quarantine before joining the community. Sri Lanka’s safety measures include spending two days in a government certified hotel if vaccinated and two weeks if you haven’t received the vaccination yet.

Although people are yearning to go on a holiday, especially to a tropical island such as Sri Lanka, to enjoy the sunny beaches while kicking back and relaxing, people are very hesitant to spend two weeks of their holiday stuck in a hotel room. No matter how comfortable or luxurious a hotel room can be, it can still get quite monotonous as it’s not the ideal way you would want to spend your vacation.

Santani Resort and Spa provides you with a unique solution to this concern.
