[Travel] New Norma Hotel in Malaysia with SOP – Swiss-Garden Residences KL

by - Thursday, July 23, 2020

On last a few weeks ago, I just back from a short holiday at Swiss-Garden Residences Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for 5 days and 4 nights with my mom. I make a reservation for this holiday in April 2020, but the Malaysian government makes the MCO (Movement Control Order) which starts on 18 March 2020 until 9 June 2020. Unfortunately, I can't stay there during the MCO period so I do the exchange date to July 2020. Even though, Malaysia is still in RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) period; which starts on 10 June 2020 until 31 August 2020 but we're allowed to go holidays in domestic. 

During this RMCO, some of the sectors are allowed to start operations including the tourism sectors like hotels or Travel agencies Company but it only allows for domestic traveling in these moments. All the hotels in Malaysia must have to follow the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) from the Malaysian government. As an SGI VC member's, I become curious about the SOP in the hotel after this pandemic COVID-19 even I received the email from the SGI VC about this new norma SOP hotel. 

So far, I do see they are practicing the new norma and SOP hotel. For example, checking the body temperature before entering the building, scanning the QR Code of MySejetera, keep the social distance 1 meter, and places the hand sanitizer in different areas. Even the cleaning room is around 1 time within 2 days, but all the stuff already in the room for 2 days stocks, like toiletries, mineral water bottles, tea & coffee. They say it's because they want less contact between staff and customers for these moments. It's feeling new at the beginning but this is the way for us to keep safe from the COVID-19. It's also nice after we can take short breaks after MCO even it's just the holiday in Kuala Lumpur hotel.
