Under a previous order, the Governor said any hotels with guests may remain open until the last guest checks out, but that no hotels were allowed to receive any new guests.

“Due to the order to close hotels, this resulted in some hotels not complying with the prescribed measures by informing tourists to stay before the order came into force, leaving tourists without accommodation and unable to return to their homes.”

The five hotels that can take in new guests are…

  • The Dara Hotel, over the road from Central Festival: Room rate 1,000 baht (breakfast included)
  • The Throne on Koh Siray: Room rate 1,000 baht (breakfast included)
