The company, which owns and operates a collection of four all-inclusive properties in Jamaica, has announced that each employee will be entitled to paid vacation, all of their benefits and a portion of their salary during the resorts’ closure due to the global impact of COVID-19.
“This brand recognizes the important roles each essential employee brings to the brand’s success and aims to help prioritize their health and safety during these challenging times,” the company said in a statement.
Couples Resorts also confirmed that its non-profit organization, The Issa Trust Foundation, has donated more than $238,000 of critical medical equipment and supplies such as ventilators, x-ray machines, hand sanitizer, beds and stretchers to assist Jamaica’s hospitals.
Couples Resorts is just one example of COVID-19.

Velas Resorts Invites Future Travelers to Dream Together
As hotels and resorts throughout many popular tourist destinations remained closed over the past few months, eager travelers sat home awaiting the day they can safely board a plane to their favorite home away from home.
Although Velas Resorts‘ properties may not have been open for visitors, the company kept travelers busy from afar, offering daily inspiration on the Velas Magazine and inviting people to continue #DreamingTogether.
“After all this time staying at home, we are gearing up to welcome you and continue creating special moments for you. Please join us on this countdown to add new travel anecdotes while we keep #DreamingTogether!” the company said.
From fun activity ideas to do with children and DIY projects to test creative skills to wardrobe and fashion inspiration and recipes to try making at home, the Velas Magazine’s daily content provides plenty of ways to spice up life in quarantine.
There is even advice available on how to capture the best vacation photos on your phone and helpful tips on how to compost at home in order to maintain a beautiful garden.
All of these exciting pastimes are only a small sample of what guests staying at Velas Resorts’ properties will experience.
In addition to using this time to provide future travelers with things to do while staying safely at home, the company has also created new post-COVID-19 hygiene protocols. Its Stay Safe With Velas program includes new guidelines such as physical distancing measures, touchless sanitizer stations and frequent hand washing in addition to enhanced cleaning measures for guestrooms and resort areas.
Velas Resorts includes three luxury resorts—Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, Grand Velas Los Cabos and Grand Velas Riviera Maya—totaling 1,170 rooms and suites. Visitors to these properties are treated to gourmet restaurants, stunning landscapes, luxury wellness opportunities and top-notch hospitality throughout their stay.
