Jumeirah Beach Hotel Marina in Dubai has been awarded two international accreditations.
These are for the Marina Industries Association’s (MIA) International Gold Anchor Rating Scheme and the MIA International Clean Marina Program.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel Marina has been rated as a five Gold Anchor marina under the thorough MIA criteria that results in only a limited number of marinas achieving a rating of five.
The Clean Marina Program accreditation is based on an assessment against 123 environmental related criteria and the Marina achieved a high score against the criteria. Accreditation is subject to desk top and independent site auditing. Gold Anchor assessments also include telephone surveys of a sample of marina berth holders and subsequent ‘mystery shopper checks.’
