Download the App
We encourage guests to download the government’s COVIDsafe app ahead of their arrival at Malumba Estate.
On arrival at Malumba Estate
Everyone entering and exiting the property is asked to wash or sanitise their hands. Luxurious handwash, running water, alcohol-based hand rub, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are provided.
Malumba Estate can commit to a contact-less guest experience if requested, by simply providing our guests with a digital manual to enter and operate Malumba Estate. Please know however that this is not our preference, as your Malumba experience is based on customer service. We would rather commit to our guests, that our staff, if working, will always be in excellent health. Our staff are trained to keep guests and themselves – COVIDsafe.
Our Staff
Our staff are trained not to come to work if even remotely unwell. Our staff will be given assistance to isolate and be tested immediately if suspected of having the coronavirus. Malumba staff are trained to keep an appropriate physical distance between themselves and our guests.
KEEP Physical distancing DURING YOUR STAY
We’re fortunate to have 1200 SQM of built space and 9.5 acres of lush exterior rainforest at Malumba Estate. That’s 40 SQM per guest and 10 x the government required amount. None the less we ask guests not to be complacent but to keep a safe physical distance of 1.5 m or 4 SQM apart at all times. We provide signage to remind guests to continue this COVIDsafe practice during their stay.

Even while you sleep
Pillow lines are distanced at 1.5 meters or more apart, unless you are a family or couple sharing a bed. Malumba’s beds have the luxury of zipping together and zipping apart to be made up as desired and in a COVIDsafe fashion.
Proper and frequent handwashing helps combat the spread of viruses. We all know cleanliness starts with this one simple act and is of vital importance for the health of our employees and that of our guests. We inspire the desire to wash your hands regularly at Malumba by providing signage as well as super luxurious and decadent Saya hand wash in all 11 bathrooms. Hand Sanitiser is also readily available in all interior and exterior common areas.
