Turks & Caicos (March 10, 2021) — Grace Bay Resorts is proud to announce that it is among the first hotels in the world to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place. 

This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events. 

“We are thrilled to be among the first to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide.” Said Nikheel Advani, COO & Principal, Grace Bay Resorts. “We are truly grateful to Herman Elgar, EVP & GM, Travel, Entertainment and Health Security, Sharecare as well as Fillip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide for their unwavering support through the years and for the launch of this program that provides travelers the added assurance and confidence that our resorts follow and exceed these best practices to minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19.” 

Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on genuine Five-Star service, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards. 

“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “By becoming VERIFIED®, Grace Bay Resorts has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”
