While several hotels and resorts around the world are temporarily suspending services because of the Coronavirus pandemic, a few others are joining the fight against it. JA Resorts And Hotels in Dubai is one such hotel. The group is offering 1,000 free stays to healthcare workers in the UAE during the COVID-19 outbreak. By Kumar Shree
The group is offering a complimentary one-night stay with breakfast at its several properties namely JA Palm Tree Court, JA Lake View Hotel and JA Beach Hotel at JA The Resort Dubai, JA Hatta Fort Hotel in the Hajar Mountains, and JA Ocean View Hotel and JA Oasis Beach Tower on The Walk.
Medical workers and healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, administrative staff, ambulance drivers, and cleaners with a valid UAE medical ID can avail this offer. They just need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org before April 30, 2020, and a selected 1,000 will receive hotel vouchers, which they can redeem anytime before 2021. The only applied condition says that these vouchers can be redeemed only after its safe for everyone and things are back to normal.
“These 1,000 room nights are our way of rewarding the hard work, dedication, and bravery of all the UAE medical workers who risk their own health and safety every day to help others in the community. As we face these unprecedented times and our own industry suffers deeply, we recognise that these individuals are the backbone of our society and the bravest heroes among us,” said CEO Anthony Ross.
While JA Resorts And Hotels has come up with this unique initiative, some other hotels in the city like Dubai Airports hotels are also serving to the stranded passengers who could not fly back to homes because of sudden lockdown. Many other hotels and travel aggregators around the world are also trying to help in their own ways. Some of them like Airbnb, MakeMyTrip, and Yatra.com are either offering free stays to medical workers or waving off their cancellation charges.
