With the risks associated with COVID 19, and in keeping with World Health Organization and Ministry of Tourism guidelines, Oberoi have implemented a number of additional measures across their property in Dubai:

  • Masks and disposable gloves are being worn by all team members at all times and changed frequently. Housekeeping staff use fresh gloves for every room they service.
  • Sprayer with professionally identified chemicals are being used to disinfect the hotel entrances, employee entrances, as well as various public areas.
  • For the safety of our guests, rooms will be sanitised after guests check out, kept vacant for 24 hours and then allocated.
