March 2022 at Atmosphere – Covid-19 update

By 6th September 2021March 20th, 2022No Comments

The Philippines is open!

After the initial lock-down of Atmosphere in early 2020, we have now been open to guests since July 2020 and since the beginning of August 2021, we have been open 7 days per week for overnight stays, day stays, dining, scuba diving, excursions, fitness, spa and yoga.

Currently, Atmosphere is completely open with all services available, but we just ask that you make sure to reserve in advance, whether it is for an overnight stay or a weeklong holiday. Please also check the entry requirements into our province, as well as the transportation requirements (airlines, ferries). If you live in the nearby area and wish to enjoy Atmosphere during the day or overnight, don’t hesitate to contact us. Occasionally, we have private events and we want to make sure that we don’t disappoint you if you drop in without a reservation.

Since February 10, the Philippines is open for international tourists again, after a 2-year closure. It makes us very excited and we are excited to now see international tourists walk through our gates again.

Travel requirements change frequently, see below for the current rules but also check in with us if there have been any changes locally, and check with your travel agent or embassy if you are unsure of the requirements regarding visas, proof of vaccination and Covid-tests for international travelers.

Our reservations team is available 7 days per week 8am – 4pm local time by phone, and emails will be answered within 24 hours.

Today, we are focusing on ensuring that Atmosphere is safe for both guests and our team – we can’t wait to see you here again! We have been very busy implementing the required measures to make sure that Atmosphere remains the perfect luxury getaway with the best social distancing measures possible without taking away the luxury experience.

Stay safe – we look forward to seeing you soon.
