Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on Palm Jumeirah has become the latest hotel to receive Bureau Veritas’ Safeguard label. The inspection and certification company has been working with Jumeirah throughout the pandemic to audit its properties on hygiene and safety.Earlier in the week, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) announced that the emirate’s hospitality and tourism sectors are ‘rapidly rebounding’, highlighting in particular the hygiene efforts of Jumeirah Group.
In DTCM’s statement, Jumeirah Group’s CEO, Jose Silva said: “Jumeirah Al Naseem was the first hotel in the world to receive the prestigious Bureau Veritas Safeguard Label, followed by three of our other Dubai-based luxury hotels, with certifications of the remaining properties to follow suit. We believe this has gone a long way in helping to restore confidence for both domestic and international travellers,” said Silva.“Examples of the vigorous new protocols we have put in place include circulating three times more fresh air throughout our hotels, provision of hygiene amenities, leaving rooms vacant between guest stays, using disinfectant fogging for rooms and thermal hygiene processes for our bedding and pillows,” he added.
According to the statement, Zabeel Saray passed the audit “with flying colours.”
