BINTULU: The Fairfield By Marriott Bintulu Paragon Hotel has received the halal certification for its kitchen at the hotel’s ‘KAVA All-Day Dining Restaurant’.

The certificate was handed over by the director of the Malaysian Islamic Development Department  (Jakim) Sarawak and  a member of the halal certification committee of Majlis Islam Sarawak, Ustaz Hamdan Jar’ee to the general manager of the hotel, Derrick Felix.

In a statement issued today, Derrick thanked Majlis Islam Sarawak for the certification.

“The certification is beneficial to all guests as it encourages strict hygiene practices and food safety besides covering religious requirements. It will also help boost the trust and confidence of our Muslim guests dining with us,” he said.

Meanwhile, he invited guests to take advantage of the hotel’s current promotions and its upcoming great deals.

“Enjoy our special room rate package which is valid till September 30, 2020 for room stays until February 28, 2021. Besides room specials, take advantage of our food and beverage deals with choices of super deal combo set meals for lunch or dinner.

“For those celebrating their birthdays in September, do go for our birthday celebration package featuring exciting food, beverage deals and complimentary room stay, so stay tuned for more packages to come,” added Derrick.

Derrick also stressed that the well-being of guests remained the hotel’s top priority.

“We are vigilant in enforcing the health-related standard operating procedures as directed by the authorities and those by the Marriott International globally.

“For instance, besides the usual temperature checks, health declarations and hand sanitisation upon the arrival of guests, our procedures also require us to sanitise the guests’ luggage.

“We embark on sanitisation of all public surfaces every two hours daily and maintain very strict cleaning processes for guest rooms after the checks-outs by guests. All these are in line with Marriott International’s global protocols,” he explained.
