“We Care”

For the last 50 years, MarBella Collection’s utmost priority has been the wellbeing of our guests, our staff and partners.

With that in mind we have created the “We Care” Health and Safety Protocol rigorously designed together with our strategic partners, Priority Hellas and Diversey, implementing wide-ranging measures across all areas of our operations. Find our more here on Covid Shield Policy

MarBella Collection “We Care” Health and Safety Protocol has been accredited by Global Leader TÜV Austria, with the Covid Shield ‘Principal Rating’, this recognition comes to re-confirm our operational readiness and adjustment to the latest Health & Safety Protocols.

                             

Your Travel Plans

Join us in Corfu for a vacation with added peace of mind. Greece was quick to react to the global Covid-19 pandemic and ultimately is one of the least affected countries in Europe. As a result, our beautiful island remains one of the safest destinations for your summer getaway.

Beginning July 1, 2020, the Greek government has determined how the country will welcome travellers, carry out the necessary diagnostic screening and keep everyone safe throughout the season.

All travellers are required to complete a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at least 48 hours prior to entering the country, providing detailed information on their point of departure, the duration of previous stays in other countries, and the address of stay while in Greece. You can find it here!
