The week kicked off with a TakeCare Wellbeing Day on Monday, 22 May to celebrate commitment to the staff wellbeing and happiness by focusing on their health, and the importance of taking care of themselves just as they take care of the hotel’s guests. Hotel staff were welcomed with breakfast, the most important meal of the day followed by sessions on facial techniques and skincare tips, free eye and glucose tests.
