Hotels across Dubai are wooing residents from across the UAE with attractive staycation packages featuring discounts and deals on room rates, F & B and other facilities after reopening their doors following the gradual easing of pandemic-related restrictions.
With guests once again having access to common facilities and amenities like beaches, restaurants and swimming pools, in addition to a resumption of water sports activities, hotels in Dubai have also deployed a range of unprecedented measures designed to ensure the health and safety of guests and staff in line with guidelines issued by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management and the Dubai Health Authority.
Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said: “The initiative by the hospitality sector to restart operations by primarily targeting the domestic market is an important first step in our phased approach towards restoring normalcy in the tourism industry. By reviving and increasing demand for domestic tourism, we hope to create a positive perception and a conducive environment aimed at instilling confidence among travellers from around the world who plan to visit Dubai. A key part of this effort will be the effective implementation of health and safety measures across hotels in the city that will reassure guests and travellers that Dubai is one of the world’s safest destinations.”
Dubai Tourism inspectors will be regularly monitoring the hotels to ensure compliance with the comprehensive set of health and safety protocols issued by public health authorities to slow down the transmission of COVID-19. Besides the standard precautionary measures of social distancing and wearing of masks at all times by guests and employees, hotels have also deployed stringent disinfection measures of their facilities daily and frequently including thorough sterilisation and cleaning of all rooms, facilities, air conditioning systems, equipment, water tanks and washrooms, as well as enhanced sanitisation covering contact points in lobbies and other common areas. Among other precautionary measures, elevators in hotels are required to maintain a reduced and defined percentage of the passenger capacity while entrances to hotels have been fitted with equipment for contactless screening of guests.
