The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain is among the first hotels and resorts in the world to achieve health security verification from Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide

The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain is proud to announce that it is among the first hotels in the world to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place.

 

This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.

 

On the occasion, General Manager, Bernard de Villèle commented, “It is an honor to be one of the pioneer hotels to receive the Sharecare Health Security verification which only strengthen our commitment to our guests to provide a safe environment and the finest personal service and facilities.

Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on genuine Five-Star service, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.

“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. "By becoming VERIFIED®, The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”
