Everything is ready to take care of the most important, yourself.
We have been through rough weeks living one of the most complicated and unusual situations of last years. From the beginning in ARTIEM, our priority has been to protect the health of those around us. We have been working intensively creating a series of actions to provide the maximum level of hygiene and health security under the compromise of taking good care not only to our guests but to our staff, suppliers, external partners and our environment.
Living the ARTIEM experience totally safe as our priority
Following the recommendations of the document “Measures to reduce contagion of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 for hotels and tourist apartments” issued by the Institute of Spanish Tourist Quality (ICTE) and endorsed by the Ministry of Health, we inform you that ARTIEM has created a contingency plan where you can find all the measures taken to reduce the risk of contagion and guarantee the security for COVID-19, always focusing on our mission of inspiring people to be happy thanks to our unique experiences.
These measures have been developed together with our experts on prevention services (PREVIS y ASPI) and with Sebastia Crespi team, founder, and president of the consulting firm Biolinea Internacional, with several years of experience on the field.
