PHUKET: The Phuket Governor has announced five hotels where any tourists stranded in Phuket due to the COVID-19 crisis may stay at fixed rates.

 

In his announcement, Governor Phakaphong acknowledged the order issued for all hotels and accommodation establishments in Phuket that have been registered under the Hotels Act to close.

 

Under that order, any hotels with guests may remain open until the last guest checks out, but no hetls were allowed to receive new guests.

This TVF contributor is allowing all out long stay guests free rent April month.

 

Are the 5 nominated hotels offering free accommodation .... answer required. 

The prices are in the article. Not free but reasonably priced for whats being offered. Certainly not a moneyspinner

Question 1: Does it matter? (....to the vast majority of people, and in particular to the stranded tourists that are helped out).

 

Question 2: Very clearly detailed in the linked article so I know - but I'm not telling you.

 

Once again, a positive piece of news is rubbished by some bitter and cynical TVF contributors.

It's a fair question in this land of corruption and nepotism.

As someone giving his guests free accommodation for a month, LIK is quite entitled to ask the question without some dick calling him bitter and cynical!

 

Is the Patong Bay Inn part of the stable of Patong Bay hotels owned by the family?

Indeed it is.  

 

On another note, the prices being charged are quite reasonable.  Not sure why Koh Siray is so popular though.

650 baht for one person, or 800 baht for two, including full board, i.e. three meals a day, sounds amazingly cheap; wow...😯
