Samui Extra Plus hotels launched for international visitors to Samui

First 7 nights of stay under the Samui Plus programme must be in Samui Extra Plus accommodation

Bangkok, 14 July, 2021 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to provide information on the two types of hotel accommodation available under the Samui Plus programme, which is due to be launched tomorrow (15 July, 2021).

International visitors under the Samui Plus programme can choose from what are known as ‘Samui Extra Plus’ and ‘SHA Plus’ hotels, which have been officially approved in terms of hygiene and safety.

During the first 14 nights, international visitors are required to book accommodation for the first 7 nights in a ‘Samui Extra Plus’ hotel on Ko Samui only, and the remaining 7 nights in a ‘SHA Plus’ hotel either on Ko Samui, Ko Pha Ngan, or Ko Tao, before being able to travel to other destinations in Thailand.

Samui Extra Plus hotels launched for international visitors to Samui

Samui Extra Plus hotels, which are formerly ALQ hotels (now referred to as AQ hotels), have been specially assigned for the Samui Plus programme. The Samui Extra Plus label is to differentiate them from the AQ system, as there are also AQ hotels available on Ko Samui.

All Samui Extra Plus hotels are acknowledged by Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the Royal Thai Embassy/Consulate-General processing of the Certificate of Entry (COE) application specifically under the Samui Plus programme.

Simultaneously, SHA Plus certification indicates that a hotel meets the necessary measures to control COVID-19, and also that 70% of its workforce has been fully vaccinated. SHA Plus properties can be viewed here.

To book a Samui Extra Plus hotel, travellers must contact the hotel directly via email. The choice of Samui Extra Plus properties, in their respective locations around Samui, with a breakdown of the room types available is as follows:
