THERE are more reasons to travel and visit Cebu's premier city hotel, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino, as it has recently been certified by the Department of Tourism (DOT) and the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) during a special virtual awarding ceremony of the WTTC Safe Travels stamp held on April 21, 2021.

The virtual event, which was hosted by the DOT, was attended by DOT Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, members of the media and the 40 DOT-Accredited Accommodation Establishment awardees across the country. Nine of them come from the Queen City of the South.

Also in attendance during the event was Waterfront Cebu general manager Anders Hallden who proudly received the recognition on behalf of the city hotel.

The “Safe Travels” stamp is a prestigious recognition for businesses and destinations around the globe that have been compliant to the global standardized safety and health protocols of the WTTC. It aims to promote and establish a safe, fun and seamless experience for global travelers and also regain travel confidence in the new normal.

As it considers the health and well-being of its guests, clients and employees as top priority, Waterfront Cebu continues to provide a guaranteed safe and worry-free experience by strictly implementing minimum safety and health protocols during its daily operations such as implementation of the “no mask, no face shield” policy, social distancing using floor stickers, checking of body temperature upon entry to the hotel, submission of health declaration forms via the Stay Safe App, constant disinfection of high-touch areas and many more.

Since the city hotel has remained to be a hub for world-class events and celebrations despite the pandemic, the management has also strictly implemented health and safety guidelines during “new normal” events in the hotel to ensure everyone’s welfare.

Truly, Waterfront Cebu has slowly adapted to the new normal and continues to do so in order to provide its guest and clients with the best, safe and worry-free experience, the Waterfront way.
