Blue Nirvana is committed to delivering a superlative luxury experience to its discerning guests. This naturally extends to implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfection measures to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.

The owners, Annie Bourdeau, PhD, MBA and S√©bastien Trop, MD, PhD, combined their expertise in Microbiology, Immunology, Business and Critical Care Medicine to develop PureNirvana, a program designed in accordance with the guidelines published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and by the Government of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, to meet or surpass the highest standards of hygiene.

In addition, Blue Nirvana has adopted a new booking policy to prevent back-to-back stays, thereby helping to minimize the likelihood of contamination by allowing enough time for thorough cleaning and disinfection.

  • Care Package for every family provided

We provided additional training to our cleaning services personnel in enhanced hand hygiene and proper use and disposal of cleaning and disinfecting supplies. Only cleaning and disinfecting products approved by EPA/WHO/CDC are used. Cleaning equipment is cleaned and disinfected before and after use to minimize the risk of contamination. Specific equipment is used for each area (e.g. rooms, bathrooms, kitchen) to prevent cross-contamination. The process starts with the lowest risk areas (e.g. bedrooms, living room) followed by the higher risk areas (e.g. kitchen, bathrooms). Safe waste disposal techniques are enforced. Where the application of germicidal agents is not feasible (e.g. cushions, upholstery), disinfection is achieved with UV-C light. Lastly, the property ventilated during and after the process. Completed cleaning checklist are kept on record and may be reviewed by guests upon request.
