Strange Pricing At Anantara Riverside Bangkok


Recommended Posts

This is the quote sent to me for ASQ accommodation. 95,000 baht for a 1 bedroom riverside suite. When i emailed Anantara Riverside Bangkok today to book the 1 bedroom suite, this is what they stated.

 

Kindly be informed you that the Anantara Riverfront Suite can accommodate for 2 person is at THB 190,000.

 

Why would they quote me for a 2 bedroom when i wanted to book a 1 bedroom? Why i asked them, this is what they stated :

 

For this package advertise on the website is not update (old version) and the price that you see is for Thai citizen and foreigner as well. So, kindly review the update version as enclose for reference.

 

Also, why is it i am forced to purchase a package that includes 3 meals per day when i formally only eat 1 - 2 times per day and i can't bring my own food or order from outside?

 

Seems they may only allow booking of 1 bedroom riverside suites for Thai citizens only.

I just tried to make a reservation for the Anantara Riverfront Suite and I found (a) nothing available until 1 November and (b) the rate was 10,266 baht per night.  So I am confused by your post.

WAIT  Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ)   

So you want to stay there under quarantine which is, as I understand it, a stay in the room though there may be limited allowed movement outside the room.   Quarantine is 14 days, isn't it?   So 14 days for 6,7XX baht/day with meals for one person or 13,5XX baht/day for 2?  Did you give the impression you wanted accommodations for 2 people?

 

So I am still confused.  This does not seem excessive for being quarantined.

some have got more money than sense IMO, it's still in Bangkok after all where you can get a 5 star on the river for less than 2k these days

I think her complaint is the fact that the price they 1st sent to her on the quotation was for 95,000THB and then when she tried to book the room the price was changed to 190,000THB

Maybe the cheaper price is the normal rates and the higher price is the quarantine rates ?

In the Please Note section of the picture it says its the package for International Arrivals.

 

It looks like maybe it is a per person price as they say the room can take 2 people 95x2=190??

That does not appear to be the case however as it clearly indicated extra charges if hospital stays are required.

Friend of mine is arriving on Monday and he told me he was paying 55,000 baht for the 14 nights in Bangkok, so I suppose it depends on the choice of the hotel you select for your quarantine, location shouldn't have anything to do with it as no one is going to be able to go anywhere, as for doubling the price for 2 people, well that's just trying to pull the wool over your eyes isn't it, next !

How do you want to bring own food if you can't leave the hotel, you have to stay in your room for 22.5 hours a day. 3 meals a day is pretty normal. Double the price and saying this is old information isn't good.

"pull wool over eyes"?  I think I'd call it the usual "screwing farang visitors"

The whole thing is a ripoff, however back in the days of normal tourism, hotel and flight packages would show a low price, but somewhere in smaller print: PER PERSON DOUBLE OCCUPANCY.  I always was tempted by the charters from SFO to Honolulu..airfare and five nights..299 usd, but if you went alone it was 499.
