SANDAKAN: A hotel in Sandakan here is the first in the country to offer Rahmah accommodation packages in the coming month of Ramadan, said Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub, minister of domestic trade and cost of living.
He said the Rahmah initiative offered in the hospitality service can directly promote the tourism industry for both domestic and international tourists.
“The Department of Internal Trade and Cost of Living (KPDN) is expanding the Rahmah initiative to other services.
“This Rahmah initiative is now not just limited to menus, cafes and sales, but has expanded into hospitality, banking and insurance services. I will hold further rounds of talks with other parties as part of this initiative,” he told reporters after unveiling the Rahmah package offered by The Elopura Hotel here today.
According to Salahuddin, through the package, the hotel is offering a 20 percent discount on the nightly rate with free Sahur (pre-dawn) meals during this Ramadan.
He added that the 20 percent discount on the stay will also be extended a week after Ramadan with free breakfast.
Earlier, at the launch of the Menu Rahmah at nearby Mydin supermarket, Salahuddin said, based on feedback from retailers, the initiative has become a crowd puller for them.
So far, a total of 1,531 business premises across the country have registered with KPDN to take part in the initiative.
“There is no compulsion. Any merchant can register with KPDN for free so we can promote them as long as they offer a balanced meal at a price of RM5 or less,” he said. -Bernama
