Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hospitality companies, has shifted its operations in Bangkok to focus on food delivery and has launched a new service to provide delicious and nutritious meals to those undergoing self-isolation or working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak.
For the new service, three of Dusit’s properties in the capital – namely Baan Dusit Thani (Sala Daeng), Dusit Suites Hotel Ratchadamri Bangkok, and Dusit Princess Srinakarin Bangkok – have joined forces to create a special menu of freshly made dishes, drinks and desserts available for pickup or delivery in their respective neighbourhoods.
Designed to serve as a convenient and attractive option for people confined to their homes, the menu features tempting Thai and international options such as Rice with Panaeng Curry, Spaghetti Carbonara, and Orange and Almond Cake. Dishes range in price from only 70 to 100 baht.
Customers can place their orders by calling the central call centre on 02-200-9009, or via LINE @baandusitthani. The service is available daily from 10am–8pm. Customers who pick up their orders themselves will receive 10% discount.
To boost the morale of hospital staff and government officials who are working tirelessly around the clock to keep people safe in this time of crisis, the new service has also been providing regular free meals to key personnel at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, under the Thai Red Cross Society; the Airport Authority of Thailand, and Bang Lamung Hospital. Dusit’s recently opened healthy food outlet, KAUAI, has also donated nutritious wraps and freshly pressed juices to Rama Hospital.
To help hospitals which are suffering from a shortage of face masks due to high public demand, Dusit will also contribute towards stocking this essential item at Chulalongkorn Hospital, Ramathibodi Hospital (both in Bangkok), Vachira Phuket Hospital, Banglamung Hospital (Pattaya), Cha-am Hospital, and Nakornping Hospital (Chiang Mai).
Ms Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO, Dusit International, said, “Our new food delivery service has been specially designed to give our existing loyal customers, as well as new customers, the chance to enjoy top-quality, nutritious and delicious Dusit cuisine for a very special price. Even though we are all struggling in these difficult times, Dusit is always ready to provide service with heart to our communities, including the silent heroes who are working tirelessly to protect us as they treat and care for COVID-19 patients.
“We must all stand together to fight in this time of crisis. It is time for all stakeholders, both from the business sector as well as the general public, to make adjustments. At Dusit International, we are doing our best to use our company’s strengths and capabilities in this time to protect ourselves and help others. By working together, and remaining positive, we hope the COVID-19 outbreak will end quickly, and we will all return to our strong selves as soon as possible.”
