Steigenberger Al Dau Beach becomes first ever Egypt hotel to provide TUV Rheinland certificied Egypt holidays

Even after the recent open of the new ultra-luxurious Kempinski resort in Cairo it looks like Egypt holidays are unstoppable in their hosting of incredible luxury hotels. The lates one to have received praise for providing outstanding luxury holidays in Egypt has been recognised with honours by TUV Rheinland. The deluxe Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel on the Red Sea has become the first wellness hotel in Egypt and the first one outside of Europe to be awarded the Best Health International certificate for quality in spa and wellness tourism. This occurred following an independent inspection of the 5-star hotel by TUV Rheinland auditors. Since the beginning of 2009, establishments can arrange to be certified by TUV Rheinland to the Best Health International standard. This quality standard encompasses more than 130 inspection criteria covering a wide range of different areas that can be hard for guests themselves to ascertain or judge. Such areas include the training and professional development of therapists, the use of food from the region, hygiene as well as promises made regarding the effectiveness of the therapies and applications.

“We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious certificate, which is testament to our ongoing commitment to quality standards in our operation. Being the first hotel in Egypt to achieve this award clearly underlines our determination to set the benchmark in hospitality in the region“, proudly commented Lars Geweyer, general manager of the Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel.

With no doubt it was the outstandingly high standards of luxury spa services at this hotel that won them the title of the country's best when it came to luxury spa holidays in Egypt.

The quality standard was launched as part of a broad-based initiative involving the ministries of health and economic affairs, tourism organisations as well as leading companies from the hotel and health industry. The certification of the Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel on the Red Sea is part of a programme launched by the Egyptian tourism authorities to improve wellness facilities throughout the country. To help them achieve this, the Egyptian tourism authorities announced at the international tourism trade fair, the ITB Berlin in March 2010, their plans to cooperate with TUV Rheinland to certify wellness hotels to the Best Health International standard. The committee of the Egyptian Association of Spas & Wellness was set up back in 2008 to control the quality of wellness and spa facilities. Over the next two years, at least 20 Egypt hotels are to be inspected to international standards and certified by TUV Rheinland as wellness hotels.

Al Dau Beach Hotel is now officially the place to go for indulging spa Egypt holidays.
