“Quarantine paradise” sounds like an oxymoron, but the Tourism Authority of Thailand put the two contradictory words together for the new project “ASQ Paradise.” Under the project, a website was launched allowing users to search for alternative state quarantine hotels in Thailand for a “happy quarantine.”

TAT partnered with the Thailand-based company Locanation for the website which features 107 ASQ hotels offering 2-week quarantine packages ranging from 27,000 baht to 220,000 baht. The website is available in English and Chinese languages.

Before the website, tourist information regarding Thailand’s quarantine facilities was “very scattered,” according to ASQ Club Thailand’s President Prin Pathanatham.

“With the launch of the asq.locanation.com website, the ASQ Club Thailand believes that it will definitely prove to be an asset for overseas tourists, local entrepreneurs, or foreigners working in Thailand who want to research everything themselves and book directly with participating ASQ hotels.”

TAT Deputy Governor for Tourism Products and Business, Thapanee Kiatphaibool, says the collaboration “emphasizes the strength of Thailand’s tourism infrastructure even as the country is in the grip of the global pandemic crisis.”

“TAT sees an opportunity during this crisis to show other aspects of our tourism potential to the world. Not only do we retain our outstanding hospitality and travel services, but also the highest possible standards for pandemic control and quarantine.”
