A Swiss luxury hotelier started a “Covid-19 Service” offering wealthy clients high-end quarantine apartments with meal delivery and medical services, including virus tests.
Quarantine apartments in Zurich, Zug and Lucerne are available for about 200 Swiss francs to 800 Swiss francs ($822) a day, Alexander Hübner, the co-founder and chief executive officer of Le Bijou Hotel & Resort Management AG, said in an interview.
Hübner said Le Bijou has also partnered with a private Swiss health-care service to offer guests twice daily nurse visits for an additional 800 francs a day or even an in-room virus test for 500 francs. The business hasn’t provided any tests yet, he said.
Since launching last week, the company has recorded five bookings for the new Covid-19 service. Le Bijou has 42 units altogether, and about half are occupied by guests at the moment, he said.
Like most service industries, hotels have been devastated by government-ordered shutdowns of restaurants, tourist activities and large gatherings. Hübner said he started the Covid-19 service as a way to continue generating income during the crisis.
