"COVID-19 prevention buffet" restaurant opening (7/1 -)
In addition to meals and picnics in guest rooms, a buffet is added to enhance your enjoyment.

Hoshino Resorts Iriomote Hotel will open a restaurant for "COVID-19 prevention buffet" from July 1, 2020. From May 1, 2020, we have temporarily stopped serving buffet food. However, we received a lot of feedback from customers who want to use it, and in order to respond to this, we devised a new provision method that thoroughly implemented measures for "three dense avoidance" and "hygiene management". In addition to the meals you have done in the guest rooms, picnics inside the hotel, and the addition of a safe and safe buffet, the way to enjoy delicious meals, which is one of the goals of your trip, is expanding.

■Provide buffet menu (COVID-19 prevention by three dense avoidance and hygiene management) At Hoshino Resorts, we propose a trip that avoids three dense avoidance as a way of staying in the “with corona era”. We have also declared that we will work to create an environment in which congestion does not easily occur from the perspective of our customers, our staff, and our customers, and aim for the highest level of corona countermeasures. Based on this "highest standard corona countermeasure declaration," we have devised measures to ensure that customers can enjoy the buffet safely and safely in order to further meet the needs of customers who are waiting for their use. We would like you to enjoy the real pleasure of such a buffet, where you can enjoy the dishes that are related to the area and enjoy your favorite items in the amount that suits you.

■ Point 1: Only the guests whose temperature has been measured can use the restaurant. At Hoshino Resorts Iriomote Hotel, temperature is always checked at check-in. If we have a fever, we may refrain from staying, and we are working to prevent the spread of infection. In order to prevent the spread of infection, we have made the restaurant available only to guests whose temperature has already been measured.

■ Point 2: Anti-viral coating "Medical Nano Coat" is applied to neutralize infection ability "Medical Nano Coat" with anti-virus and anti-bacterial effect was applied to things that an unspecified number of people touch, such as buffet tables, tongs, dining tables and chairs. This is a special film nano-coating agent that destroys bacterial and viral proteins that touch the surface of the coating and neutralizes the infectivity (*1). You can enjoy the buffet with confidence as it reduces the risk of contact infection.

■ Point 3: Acrylic covers to prevent splash infection are installed in all dishes, and arrangement is also devised In order to take thorough measures against splash infection, we will install an acrylic cover on the dish. In addition, when the customers choose the dishes, we have devised the arrangement of the dishes to avoid crowding. The dishes are arranged on a buffet table with a wide space between dishes so that the customers are not side by side or back to back. In addition, the lines waiting for food have also been marked on the floor to maintain a social distance. Customers can choose their favorite dishes while avoiding closeness and close contact with nature.

We are taking countermeasures against contact infections and splash infections, such as applying medical nano coats and installing acrylic covers on dishes, but we decided to distribute it to all our customers for the sake of completeness.
