Centara Hotels & Resorts has launched an initiative to support courageous medical staff and other frontline workers during the COVID-19 crisis, with Centara Grand at CentralWorld in Bangkok hosting doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff from the Police Hospital, and Centara Muscat Hotel Oman offering 120 rooms to the Omani government as a serviced venue for people in need to quarantine for 14 days, with food delivered three times per day.
“Centara Hotels & Hotels is here to support medical staff in any way we can,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO, Centara Hotels & Resorts. “As a hotel operator, the best thing we can do is to offer rooms and meals to those who are working tirelessly for the wellbeing of all people. This is why we are opening our hotels to them. We hope this humble contribution will alleviate some of the stress and strain of their work by ensuring they can get rest near work without having to commute long hours and can return refreshed. We are by their side.”
According to local needs and regulations, more initiatives may take place in other territories where Centara operates.
Centara Hotels & Resorts supports social distancing and the Thai government and global initiatives to stay at home. The company also recently introduced a high-quality delivery service to take food to people’s homes during the crisis.
