Thailand has reportedly done an exemplary job in managing coronavirus and weeks have gone by without local transmission. With the country having a firm hold over the situation, easing travel restrictions is currently being contemplated by the authorities. Domestic tourism is already picking up and the Ministry of Tourism and Sports is planning to open five islands for international tourism as early as August. The list includes Koh Samui and Phuket. If you’re looking for a change of scenery or wish to escape Bangkok and other crowded cities for the sandy shores of these tropical islands, we’ve got good news.

1. Testing guidelines

Thailand is planning to welcome up to 1,000 international arrivals each day, flying directly to the island from low-risk countries. Travellers will be given an option between a 14-day quarantine at a property on the island or to take a coronavirus test on arrival worth THB 4,000 (USD 128). Meanwhile, Phuket gets preparations underway to accommodate beach holiday tourists.

3. Family fun

There’s plenty to do for the entire family in Phuket and Koh Samui. Tag the kids along as absolute fun is guaranteed in Blue Tree Phuket, while the marine world beckons you to try scuba diving or snorkelling in Samui and Phuket. Surfing is also a popular and exciting activity, so don’t miss out and try your hand at it when given the chance. Plenty of jungle trails allow you to explore the islands’ hinterland and our villas come stocked with entertainment facilities aplenty.

4. Mouth-watering food

Thai is one of the most beloved and complex cuisines in the world. Emphasising on aromatics and herbs, it pairs curries with light preparations such as salads and sticky rice. Each region has its own speciality and distinct style, and our skilled in-villa chefs ensure that each meal is a marvelous celebration of flavours and techniques.
