The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting many in the travel and hospitality community. During this uncertain and difficult time, we feel that it is important to reassure our guests, both domestic and international, that we are doing everything possible to meet your needs.
For those that prefer a more calm and tranquil location yet still within easy reach of everything that Rio has to offer, Casa Verde is the perfect place, located within Tijuca Forest, a tropical forest in the heart of Rio, and with a great view of the local beach and nearby islands and the Atlantic ocean.
Casa Verde does not have neighbours to the side or behind the property, so isolation from others is guaranteed, especially during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Even though we are in the forest, getting around could not be easier. Taxis / Uber arrive within a few minutes, public transport stops directly outside and a walk downhill to the nearest beach only takes 20/25 minutes.
Whilst the virus is still active, we will keep our occupancy level at, no more, than 50%. This will enable us to provide adequate distance between occupied rooms and ensure that guests can feel confident they are achieving their social distancing needs.
Our Check-in times will remain the same, 14:00- 22:30. We ask that guests advise us of their expected arrival time, this will allow us to ensure we are available to receive you and to ensure all hygiene measure are in place.
Please use the intercom to gain entry at check-in. The intercom is only used for new arrivals and will be disinfected daily. Alternatively, you can contact us using your cell phone to advise us once you arrive.
Whilst the virus is still active, we ask that all guest use face masks (covering both the mouth and nose) when passing through public spaces.
Room hygiene is always important, even more so during this time. Guest rooms will be cleaned using either a chlorine / alcohol-based cleaning product and other quality disinfectants on all hard surfaces. Special attention will be given to areas that are touched regularly, such as doorknobs, drawer pulls, the toilet flush lever, faucet handles, remote controls, and light switches.
All bed linen, including pillows and mattress covers will be laundered prior to each guest arrival. Bath and Hand towels and are provided for each guest and will be changed daily.
