In a new initiative to support medical staff, Centara Hotels & Resorts is offering complimentary rooms and meals to carers in need.

The idea behind the project is to preserve the time and energy of medical staff who work long hours and often travel long distances to and from the hospitals in which they are working.

Five-star Centara Grand at CentralWorld in Bangkok has been hosting doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff from the Police Hospital since April 1, and will continue to do so until the situation improves. In addition, Centara Muscat Hotel Oman has offered 120 rooms to the Omani government as a serviced venue for people needing to self-isolate for 14 days.
