Grand Seasons Hotel Given A New Life By Turning Into A Welfare Hotel For Those In Need
2 years ago (28 February 2019), Grand Seasons Hotel KL ceased operations and has now been turned into transit homes for the needy by the Malaysian government. This effort is a collaboration between the Ministry of Federal Territories and Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (YWP), to turn the iconic 40-storey hotel into a welfare home from 15 July onwards.
Grand Seasons KL, closed down 2 years ago, offered itself to the Govt to set up transit homes in the 300 rooms for the needy & underprivileged. The massive kitchen will be a central soup kitchen for the City. Good to know how these abandoned hotels are being put to good use 🇲🇾🤞🏻 — Susan Lankester (@suelanks) July 9, 2021
According to Bernama, the previous Grand Seasons Hotel will be renamed as Rumah Prihatin@Grand Seasons while being handled by a group of NGOs. “This is a platform to gather, coordinate, and treat those who are impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. It is done jointly with the support of volunteers, associations, corporate organisations, and NGOs,” Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said.

Those who are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic just have to pay a small sum or any amount they are able to afford to stay at the hotel. According to Sinar Harian, they are offering 200 hotel rooms to those in need. Well that’s not all, Rumah Prihatin@grand Seasons also offer 1,000 food packages daily under the Prihatin Kitchen component.
