8 Luxury Hotels and Resorts Welcoming Guests Back With Safety and Social Distancing In Mind

Summer is in full swing, and you know what that means — so are vacations. But only socially distanced ones, of course. And with safety being the primary concern for travel in the midst of a pandemic, travelers are now taking extra precautions when it comes to how they travel, and of course, where they stay.

Because what’s the point of sacrificing either if you’re finally going to leave your home? So, the next time you visit a hotel, expect big changes for procedures around cleaning.

Here are a few hotels safely welcoming back guests, without the sacrifice of amenities, friendly hospitality and luxury accommodations.

    The Kensington Hotel | Luxury Hotel in South Kensington

    COVID-19 Update

    Set in one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, around the corner from national treasures – The Natural History, Victoria and Albert and Science Museums,  The Kensington is perfectly situated to enjoy them all. The Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Kensington Palace and Harrods are too within walking distance.

    There’s a sense, on being welcomed through the double-framed doors of The Kensington by a bowler-hatted doorman, of stepping back in time to a more genteel age.

    Certainly, the Victorian grandeur of its high ceilings, heritage decor and open fireplaces evoke something of a bygone era. Yet, there is also modernity to the colourful, contemporary furnishings and the attentive, naturally friendly staff. It all combines to lend the personal, familiar vibe of a lovingly-restored mansion and sophisticated members’ club, where everyone feels like they belong.

    Elegantly appointed guestrooms and suites reflect an exquisite blend of period charm and modern comfort
