Dusit International responds to positive signs that
the COVID-19 curve is flattening in Thailand by launching
the ‘Dusit Care Card’ in support of two local charities
Advance-booking campaign offers exceptional value on stays with breakfast
at Dusit Hotels & Resorts in Thailand, and continues Dusit’s mission to support
its local communities by helping to raise funds for two distinct causes.
Bangkok, 30 April 2020: Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, is continuing to leverage its resources to the benefit of local communities by launching a gift card with altruistic benefits.
Available now, the ‘Dusit Care Card’ allows customers to make advance reservations at the special price of 2,888 baht per night with breakfast for two persons, with stay dates valid through 31 December 2021 at participating Dusit Hotels & Resorts in Thailand. Any purchase of 10 cards or more will receive 10% discount.
For every Dusit Care Card sold, Dusit will donate 500 baht to be shared equally between the Contribute to COVID-19 Patient Treatment Project at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thai Red Cross Society, where the funds will go towards purchasing medical equipment, and the Walking Through COVID-19 With Elephants Project of the Thai Elephant Alliance Association.
The Dusit Care Card also serves as an attractive option for those who are seeking to buy gifts for frontline medical personnel and other key staff who have worked so hard to protect the public during the COVID-19 crisis.
Ms Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO, Dusit International, explained that the launch of the Dusit Care Card coincides with positive signs that the number of cases of COVID-19 in Thailand is declining, following government regulations to limit the spread of the virus. She said the campaign serves as an opportunity for the company to leverage its resources, including rooms and services, to support communities in need while also helping to spread positive messages of hope and gratitude.
“Over the past few months, we have put all our efforts into sustaining our company to take care of all of our stakeholders – employees, customers and shareholders alike,” said Ms Suthumpun. “We have also leveraged our resources to give back to our communities wherever possible, including by making regular food donations to frontline healthcare personnel and other key workers at hospitals and agencies tending to the public nationwide. With the number of COVID-19 cases in Thailand now diminishing, we are looking towards the future with hope, and we will continue to seek ways we can use our resources to help our communities in need while also supporting united efforts to help mend, propel and restore the Thai economy when the crisis is over.”
Ms Suthumpun said the company is preparing for the ‘new normal’ ahead by implementing new hygiene measures and systems, and establishing new standards of customer service, to ensure the safety and well-being of its guests, customers, employees, and local communities.
“We have enhanced our already stringent health and safety practices, which have included tracking and monitoring arrivals and regularly disinfecting all rooms and public areas, to include additional measures across three key areas – physical distancing, contactless service, and screening of guests, customers and employees,” said Ms Suthumpun. “We have also trained our staff to follow all the latest recommended hygiene practices for accommodating and taking care of customers in a post COVID-19 world. Steps such as these will ensure we are well-positioned to maintain guest and customer confidence, and ultimately provide comfortable, enjoyable, and most importantly, safe stay and dining experiences when our hotels and outlets are open as usual once again.”
The Dusit Care Card is available to buy online at dusitgiftcard.com. Both digital and physical cards are available.
