All qualified employees across five Anantara five resorts on the Thai islands of Koh Samui and Phuket have been inoculated against Covid-19 in a vaccination drive led by Anantara Hotels and Resorts, local government and health authorities.
The drive is part of the hotel brand’s commitment to safeguarding visiting guests against infections. Each of the five resorts in Southern Thailand – Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort, Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort, Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas and Anantara Phuket Suites & Villas – also has a Guest Guardian on site to oversee health and safety standards by ensuring that a series of rigid brand health and safety guidelines are met and surpassed at all times.
The primary initiatives were driven by the adoption of new technology, such as digital check-in/check-outs, digital concierge services, UVC lights and HEPA-grade air purifiers, all in compliance with the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organisation.
“We have been working very closely with the local government and health authorities to ensure the vaccine is available to all hospitality workers at our resorts in Koh Samui and Phuket not only to curb the spread of Covid-19 but also to reassure travellers of our focus on guests’ health and well-being,” said Thomas B Meier, senior vice president of Minor Hotels, Asia.
“Thailand’s islands will be key destinations set to re-open to international travellers and they can now travel with the understanding that all measures have been taken to make their holiday as safe as possible at our resorts,” Meier added in a press statement.
Several Anantara resorts in Thailand offer Alternative State Quarantine packages, which are developed in partnership with respected international hospitals. Upon completion of the quarantine requirements, guests are free to travel onward to their preferred Anantara resort in Koh Samui, Phuket or other locations across Thailand.
