"Al Hamra Golf Club has opened to club members, hotel guests and UAE registered golfers with stringent preventive measures in place such as limited player capacity, single use carts, limit on players per groups as well as sanitisation of all carts before and after use. Body temperatures of members, guests and employees are checked on the arrival with sanitising programmes and social distancing measures being implemented across the clubs food and beverage outlets. We are also in the process of implementing the latest new FB technology which removes the need of menus by allowing guests to view the menu, order items and pay directly from their mobile device."
Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah
"Al Hamra, along with our hotel partners and the Public Service Department of Ras Al Khaimah (PSD), have implemented a full sterilisation programme and are undertaking various measures across all of our hospitality and leisure assets, such as training for safe guest interactions, guest education programmes, elevated hygiene standards and revised operational procedures. Furthermore, our hotels are in the final stages of implementing RAKTDAs Stay Safe Hotel Certification, which is an excellent initiative by the Emirates Tourism Authority, that aims to boosts confidence and rebuild trust in the emirates tourism industry amid concerning and challenging times. The achievement of the certification will solidify Al Hamras destination wide measures and reiterates Al Hamras goal of providing a safe environment for all our residents and guests."
"The safety of our guests, partners and colleagues is of the utmost importance to us. We are grateful to all the government bodies for their tireless efforts and initiatives in ensuring the safety and well-being of residents, and to drive business continuity."
