#OnlyatSani Protocol

At Sani Resort we are taking responsible actions to protect our people, and all those who choose to stay with us. Within this unique sanctuary, we have adjusted our services and operations for your safety, comfort and confidence, please find the answers to your frequently asked questions below.

Which hotels will open and when?

The Sani Resort Opening Date is on April 29th, 2021. 

Do you know if Greece will allow people of my nationality to travel? 

International flights can land in Athens as well as Thessaloniki, the country's second-largest city. Those from the 29 designated countries, the majority of them in Europe, are subject to random tests. Passengers from all other countries will have to continue getting tested, staying overnight at specific hotels, and quarantining for either seven or 14 days. Compulsory testing and quarantine will be limited only to travelers, irrespective of nationality, arriving from airports of affected areas with high risk of transmission of the Covid-19 infection, as assessed by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). All other travelers will enter restriction-free and may be subject to random tests upon arrival. 

As of July 01, 2020 all travelers are subject to random tests upon arrival. The list and all information provided by EASA, is constantly updated and subject to change, so travelers should check before traveling.

Are there any requirements for health documents (medical examinations / certificates) to be submitted at the hotel check-in? 

We strongly advise you are tested within 72h of your arrival date and recommend you bring the certification with you. We also offer a complimentary rapid antigen test upon arrival, a quick and easy procedure at a designated testing area on site.

In the case I find myself positive at the airport and can’t fly, will there be cancellation charges? 

A certificate of diagnosis will be required, with the submission of this certificate we will waive any cancelation charges. Please see our flexible travel options here.

Do I have to do the COVID test?
