In response to the challenges of this year’s season caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Istra Camping campsites have paid special attention to the issues of health, cleanliness and personal space to ensure a pleasant, safe and relaxing stay in nature
Safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees are our main priorities. In response to the challenges of the 2020 season caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and as an additional confirmation that all appropriate health, safety and hygiene conditions have been met to enable us to continue our business activity, we at Istra Camping have selected the TÜV Croatia certification company (part of the TÜV NORD GROUP) to help us implement the "Hygiene and Cleanliness Checked" verification programme.
- The certificate covers all business processes within the facility:
- Food management process monitoring (from the moment it is received by the kitchen staff until the moment it is served);
- Ensuring a high level of hygiene standards in the provision of accommodation services;
- Confirming the implementation of hygiene measures with the aim of preventing the occurrence and spread of infection in swimming pools and bathing areas, Activities & Experiences clubs, pools and operating areas, and toilets.
- The certificate confirms that all activities performed in our accommodation facility, including the partners involved in business processes (suppliers, technical support, security guards, lessees, external service providers etc.), and other amenities offered meet a high quality level of operation and hygiene standards.
Enjoy your carefree and safe stay at Istra Camping properties thanks to the Hygiene and Cleanliness Checked label.
