Dur Hospitality, a Saudi Arabian hospitality company, has introduced a new hygiene programme as it prepares to resume operations.

According to a Trade Arabia report, the hospitality company rolled out its ‘Safe Stay’ programme after the Saudi Arabian government relaxed Covid-19 related restrictions.

The new set of guidelines are devised to protect the guests and employees retaining its Dur’s hospitality style.

It includes maintaining highest standards of cleanliness with accordance to the guidelines issued by WHO. Dur will also work to minimise direct contact at front offices, while common areas will undergo intensive disinfection procedures

Dur Hotel Operations head Hassan Ahdab was quoted by the publication as saying: “During the past phase, we have invested towards building fruitful partnerships with specialised international consultancies including Ecolab, Lobster Ink, and Diversy, to embrace the highest hygiene and prevention standards across our hotels’ facilities.

“As a result, the ‘Safe Stay’ programme was developed and mandated in all our hotels, and we have trained our staff to adopt the programme across all facilities and operations.

“I am certain that we will exceed expectations and fulfil the aspirations of valued guests, who form our first and foremost incentive to give our very best.”

The company will begin operations after a third-party accredited by the Saudi Ministry of Health issues ‘cleanliness certification’ to each of its properties.

Recently, several hotel chains in the Middle East have adopted cleanliness programmes including the UAE’s Time Hotels to ensure safety amid Covid-19 crisis.
