Luxury Swiss Hotel Offers New COVID-19 Guest Package That Includes Virus Testing, Personal Chef & Other Quarantine Amenities
Across the globe, companies are adjusting their offerings to provide aid to those most affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Le Bijou, a high-end Swiss hospitality company, is the latest to join these ranks. While most hotels are being forced to close their doors, Le Bijou has recently launched a new package for guests in response to the coronavirus outbreak and the country’s lockdown.
Their luxury COVID-19 quarantine rooms offer medical check-ups, coronavirus tests, nursing, food delivery, and personal chef service all within in your Le Bijou room. With their healthcare partner, the hotel also provides 24/7 personal health monitoring.
Each room offers everything you need to maintain the country’s strict social distancing and “stay home” warnings. “[You] don’t need to interact with anyone you don’t want to,” says Alexander Hübner, CEO and co-founder of Le Bijou. Staff will handle grocery lists and can provide nightly cleaning or cleaning supplies so guests can maintain their temporary home themselves.
Since the outbreak, rooms have been booked for 14 days to two months. According to CNN Travel, “a medium-sized apartment, would typically cost about $1,000 per night, but rates have dropped due to declining travel numbers, and now, one of the medium-sized units can be had for $500-600 a night. The coronavirus test is an additional $500, which includes lab costs, related administration, the in-room doctor visit, and results.”
The hotel is also offering free rooms to healthcare workers in need of a break. The company website states, “If you are working in healthcare and work overtime due to fighting the coronavirus and need a break, you can stay at Le Bijou for free. Recover in one of our in-room SPAs and enjoy our beautiful apartments; maybe even have a glass of champagne. It’s free of charge for you until the crisis is over. We make the same offer for people in great need. Just inquire and we will find a solution for you.”
