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.
Both properties will remain closed from March 26 until April 15, 2020. All facilities, including the swimming pool, gym, spa and restaurants will be closed. The Meydan Grandstand event operations will also be temporarily closed.
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 will use the following two weeks to deep clean, refresh amenities and make product improvements.
Mohamed Shawky, Hotel Manager, The Meydan Hotel says: “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’re 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 says: “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, 5-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.”
