Don’t hesitate if you want to make a visit to Tanah Lot. The tourist attraction located at Beraban Village, Kediri, Tabanan, has received a Certificate of Cleanliness, Health, Safety and Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) standard from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (MTCE) of the Republic of Indonesia. The certificate proves that the destination offering a wonderful sunset panorama and a temple in the middle of the sea has implemented health protocols in accordance with government standards. “The CHSE-based health protocol is meant to ensure the safety and comfort of visit at Tanah Lot,” said Operations Manager of Tanah Lot Attraction, Wayan Sudiana, on Wednesday (Mar 3).
Indeed, Tanah Lot has strictly implemented health protocols from the beginning. When entering the new era of life order (New Normal), Tanah Lot was opened on July 20, 2020 by implementing a certified health protocol from the Tabanan Government. After that, when entering 2021, the destination being famous for its magical power of the temple in the middle of the sea has further boosted its health protocol with its recent CHSE certificate. “This CHSE certificate is important to restore the trust of tourists in order to return to make a visit to Bali in general and Tanah Lot in particular. Thus, tourists can enjoy their holidays safely and comfortably,” he said.
Sudiana further added there are conditions carried out as a form of implementing the CHSE procedure such as obliging tourists to wash their hands, providing hand sanitizers at each entry post, measuring the body temperature of tourists, staff and employees as well as spraying disinfectants regularly throughout the object area. “Although previously this procedure was routinely carried out, currently the management is trying to further increase supervision and perform periodic checks, so that all stakeholders are disciplined in implementing health protocols as an effort to prevent Covid-19 transmission,” he affirmed.
Tanah Lot attraction has prepared all the facilities supporting the implementation of the health protocol. The sinks and station for washing hands with soap and running water are installed at strategic points to the beach area. This includes hand sanitizers in all corners of the object area. “Our field officers have routinely supervised. Although they very rarely find stubborn visitors, sometimes a few of them wear mask wrongly or unconsciously flock to their friends. Thus, our officers immediately approach and give advice and understanding,” he explained.
In addition, the management also regularly calls out through loudspeakers in the parking lot or in the beach area. “We want tourists making a visit to always feel safe and comfortable when they are in the Tanah Lot area. Hopefully, tourism can gradually recover with the opening of international flights, so that the economy can revive and recover as well,” he hoped. (BTN/bud)
