Abu Dhabi and Dubai Reopen Swimming Destinations - Coming Soon in UAE
8 June 2020

While Abu Dhabi’s reopens Saadiyat beach for a staycation, Dubai hotels receive permission to reopen pools.

Abu Dhabi hotels were allowed to reopen its private beaches, provided adhering strict government guidelines (e.g. all guests must wear protective masks on all beaches). Saadiyat Island was one of the first, who got permission for restoring beach life. The island’s private hotel beaches will be available for use to hotel guests only, so to visit the beach, you’ll need to make a booking.

Reopened hotels include:

• Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas (rooms with breakfast from around AED 650 per couple + tax (kids under 12 for free)

• Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel And Villas (bed and breakfast rates from around AED 735 + tax for a relaxing one night stay)

• Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island (all-inclusive staycation from around AED 950 + tax per night)

At this time, Dubai government gave permission to hotels for reopening their pools under new guidelines. The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority issued the list of new regulations for Dubai hotels. This includes testing of all staff before reopening and every 15 days thereafter.

The document affirms that Dubai hotels should leave rooms for a 24 hour period between each guest. Hotels should also have a thermometer and thermal camera system in place to monitor employees’ temperatures. Anyone exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms will not be allowed to enter the premises.

Such hotel facilities as restaurants and cafes, gyms, swimming pools and beaches can resume operation with a limited capacity. Restaurants can stay open between 09:00 AM and 06:00 PM, with a distance between tables and regular disinfection of menus. Only four guests can sit at a table at one time.

Masks are required to be worn throughout the hotel; elevators can occupy a maximum of four guests at a time. If you are planning to visit a hotel, remember to keep washing your hands regularly and follow all the preventive measures. As the government just updated the guidelines, it’s better to check the information before the arrival at the hotel.
