Club Med Cherating is offering free stay for Malaysian Covid-19 frontliners.

Club Med Cherating is extending 200 free resort stays to the frontliners at Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital in Kuantan, Pahang.

The hospital's healthcare staff will get to enjoy a 3D/2N getaway with their loved ones for a holiday package that includes two adults and one child.

"Although these are trying times for all of us, the frontline healthcare workers have been the beacon of hope as they work to contain the situation, ” said Club Med South East Asia general manager Vijay Sharma.

In addition to the free stay, Club Med also donated 1,000 units of N95 masks and 2,000 units of surgical masks to the hospital and the Cherating District Police Station.

More recently, the government announced that the domestic tourism sector can resume operations during the recovery movement control order (RMCO), which is expected to last until Aug 31.

During the RMCO phase, inbound tourism activities as well as interstate travel is once again opened for all Malaysians.

According to Vijay, travel and tourism brands will need to continue to maintain a line of communication with its guests to drive and build brand loyalty regardless of the environment.

“In times of uncertainty, it is important that we create open constant dialogues with our guests, and continue to be agile and respond to consumers. It is the foundation to build trust and credibility, ” he said.

Club Med has taken a number of measures to limit the severe impact that this crisis will have in the short term.

The company also assures that it will be entirely available, as soon as the current health risks are no longer a concern, to organise the postponement of the planned stays or the future travel plans of customers.

Following the announcement of the RMCO on June 7, another hotel chain – Marriott International – launched special packages across its portfolio in Malaysia.

The Save Now, Stay Later themed packages, until June 21, include savings on suites and standard room bookings across all participating hotels.
