Following the global impact of COVID-19, and precautionary measures taken by the UAE Government against the spread of the virus, Meydan Hotels and Hospitality has made the decision to temporarily close The Meydan Hotel and Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa.
 
"With people encouraged to stay home and practice social distancing, our main priority is to safeguard the well-being of our community. Therefore both properties will remain closed from March 26 until April 15. All facilities, including the swimming pool, gym, spa and restaurants will be closed. The Meydan Grandstand event operations will also be temporarily closed," the group said in a statement.
 
All customers who have placed bookings with the two hotels will be given the option to change their booking for a later date, receive a full refund or be recommended to other hotels in the surrounding area.
 
Meydan Hotels and Hospitality is devoted to ensuring the health and safety of its staff, residents and visitors and is adhering to the Government’s regulations and directives. It will use the following two weeks to deep clean, refresh amenities and make product improvements to provide guests with unmatched services and experiences upon reopening, it said.
 
Mohamed Shawky, hotel manager, The Meydan Hotel, said: “These are incredibly difficult times for us all. While we are temporarily closing our doors with a heavy heart, we know that this is the right decision to ensure the health and safety of our community. We are working very closely with local authorities as the situation evolves and very much look forward to reopening our doors next month. In the meantime, we urge everyone to stay home, stay safe and make healthy choices.”
 
Ziad Sleiman, hotel manager, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa, said: “During this unprecedented period, our thoughts are with our guests and staff. We have chosen to use this time to carry out essential works and maintenance at both properties, so that when we reopen, we will continue to provide seamless, five-star, experiences to higher standards for all of our guests. We will remain optimistic, work together to overcome this crisis and look forward to welcoming our communities, local residents and tourist back with warmth and care.” - TradeArabia News Service
