Anantara Siam Receive Thailand’s First Health Security Verification from Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide
Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is proud to announce that it is among the first hotels in the world to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place.
This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.
“This recognition is a tribute to the hard work and dedication every team member at Anantara Siam has devoted to ensure that our hotel remains a safe and welcoming destination for current and future guests. We are delighted to be the first hotel in Thailand to receive this significant certification from global leaders within the tourism industry,” said Daniel Simon, General Manager of Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel.
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on genuine Five-Star service, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.
“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. "By becoming VERIFIED®, Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”
