During their stay, many guests expressed their great appreciation towards the resort staff with Mr Jochen Berends, who was one of the guests staying there saying “It’s time to go home. I just finished the 14-day quarantine at NWR Hardap Resort. Many thanks to the NWR team for the professional service”.
Mrs Sophia Burger, Hardap Resort Assistant Manager, was very grateful for the experience and the manner that her team came together to assist in contributing towards this national cause. She wanted to assure future Hardap resort guests that the resort has been disinfected and sanitised by the Ministry of Health and Social Services to ensure their safety. “No one should be afraid to come and pay us a visit after the lockdown has been removed”, said Mrs Burger.
