Dubai’s Jumeirah Zabeel Saray has successfully passed the Bureau Veritas Safeguard audit with the luxury property compliant with world-class health and safety standards.

The resort passed the audit with “flying colours” according to a Jumeirah Group statement, having undergone rigorous testing and inspection to achieve the certification.

Bureau Veritas is a world leader in certification services, testing hotels for procedures that meet strict regulations and safety practices.

Jumeirah Zabeel Saray follows in the footsteps of sister property, Jumeirah Al Naseem, which was the first five-star resort globally to be awarded the prestigious safeguard label the end of May.

Dubai-based Jumeirah Group has implemented a series of protective measures at its hotels globally in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These include the use protective masks; daily temperature checks and extensive hygiene training for all colleagues; strict social distancing across all areas of its hotels and resorts including beaches, pools and gyms (when open); tripling fresh air in public areas; sanitisation fogging – up to three times a day depending on footfall; and strict lift etiquette to ensure guests are travelling alone.
Guest rooms are vigorously cleaned and aerated every day and offer amenities including masks, gel and wipes. Pillows and duvets undergo a thermal hygiene process while pillow and mattress protectors are changed after every checkout. Rooms are left vacant for three days after each stay as an additional safety measure and, when this is not possible due to high occupancy, the room undergoes a complete sanitisation fogging process.
