UAE based hospitality group, JA Resorts & Hotels has announced that it will be making onsite COVID-19 tests available to international and local guests at its properties in Dubai.

The onsite COVID-19 tests will be available at JA Palm Tree Court and JA Beach Hotel both at JA The Resort, Jebel Ali Beach Dubai, JA Ocean View Hotel on The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence and in The Manor by JA, located in Al Furjan, Dubai.

JA Resorts & Hotels have partnered with GMC Clinics, a citywide healthcare company with 19 facilities, to introduce in-hotel and onsite testing for guests who require a negative test result to travel.

The service will be available at JA Ocean View Hotel, JA Oasis Beach Tower, The Manor by JA, JA Beach Hotel and JA Palm Tree Court for a maximum cost of 250AED, with prices expected to go lower in the future. Without ever having to leave their hotel or resort, guests will be able to book the service and a healthcare professional will come and take the required nasal swab. Guests are required to book the service 4 days before departure and will have their result by email within 24 hours.

CEO of JA Resorts & Hotels, Anthony Ross said ‘Offering convenient and cost effective tests to guests at our hotels and resorts means that they can simply get on with their holiday and enjoy their downtime without worrying about which clinic to go to and whether they will have enough time to get it all done before their flight. We want our guests to relax, safe in the knowledge that we have taken every effort to ensure they have a safe trip in Dubai. JA Resorts & Hotels have received the Dubai Assured Stamp for following the health and safety verification process implemented by the authorities and we also voluntarily adhere to the protocols of the World Travel & Tourism Council’s #SafeTravels programme. Providing onsite COVID-19 tests is just another layer of protection for our valued guests. Dubai is still one of the most aspirational destinations in the world, and on most people’s bucket lists. The coming months provide a unique opportunity for low-risk travellers to explore an incredible destination with perfect weather - without the usual mass influx of tourists’

Steps to Arrange Test:

  • Inform the hotel reception of your testing requirement during your stay

  • Test needs to be booked 4 days prior to departure date at agreed time between 9am-9pm
  • Cost per test is AED250 inclusive of fees and payable to GMC Clinics
  • Test result time is 24 hours and will be delivered the following day before 3pm or 6pm depending on sample collection time
