Anantara Hotels and Resorts First in Southern Thailand to Fully Vaccinate All Team Members
Anantara’s five resorts located on the islands of Koh Samui and Phuket have become the brands first in Thailand to have 100% of all qualified team members vaccinated as part of its strong commitment to safeguarding visiting guests against the spread of COVID-19.
The vaccination drive has covered all qualified team members at Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort, Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort, Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas and Anantara Phuket Suites & Villas. Each resort has also reinforced health and hygiene measures under the “Stay with Peace of Mind” programme. A dedicated ‘Guest Guardian’ at each of the properties is responsible for overseeing health and safety standards by ensuring 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 (CDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
“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 travelers of our focus on guests’ health and wellbeing,” 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.”
Guests looking to travel to Thailand can touch down to safety and tranquility at several Anantara resorts offering Alternative State Quarantine packages, which have been developed in partnership with respected international hospitals, transforming every stay into a luxurious and relaxing experience. Upon completion of the quarantine requirements, guests are free to travel onto to their preferred Anantara resort in Koh Samui, Phuket or additional locations across the kingdom.
