Anantara highlights COVIDSafe requirements as Thailand reopens borders to international tourism
Anantara Hotels Resorts and Spas is ready to welcome fully vaccinated guests with no quarantine requirements from 63 low-risk countries and highlights the COVIDSafe practices required as Thailand’s borders reopen to international tourism.
From Chiang Mai in the north, to the brand’s luxury properties in the capital of Bangkok, down to the islands of Phuket and Koh Samui in the south, Anantara guests are now welcome to visit any part of the country after meeting the governments health and safety requirements under the new ‘Test & Go’ scheme.
These requirements, among others, include proof of guests being fully vaccinated with an approved vaccine at least 14 days prior to arrival and producing a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours before travelling. Upon touch-down in Thailand, a final COVID-19 test is conducted at the airport. Guests then spend one night in an Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration Plus (SHA+) certified hotel while waiting for their test result. Guests staying at an Anantara property in Bangkok will have their tests done in their room upon arrival for added convenience.
All Anantara properties that have been certified SHA+ have ensured a concerted effort to fully vaccinate all their employees and have reinforced the governments health and hygiene measures. Anantara has also implemented the ‘Stay with Peace of Mind’ programme ensuring a series of rigid brand health and safety guidelines are met and surpassed.
