The new system comes into place from Friday while booking arrangements went live this morning.
Arrivals from 33 designated countries will have to pre-book into the system.
A 12-night stay will cost €1,875 euro with meals to be provided.

Passengers who need to quarantine will be met off the plane by officials who will process them in a bubble through customs before they're handed to the defence forces for transport to hotels.
The Government’s new mandatory quarantine legislation has been described as farcical by Labour leader Alan Kelly.
He feels passengers can easily avoid quarantining if they travel via Britain.
However, Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says he's confident the system is strong enough to prevent people from getting around the rules.
