I can't see this "fire sale" on the Coral Cliff Beach Resort website. Maybe it really is only for Thais or maybe it's just a bait and switch.

nay give them some time to put it online.....try again late next month :whistling:

Big mistake. They are going to lose their core clientele when everything will be back to normal. Aman, Four Seasons, Sila Evason, ++ are doing discount nowadays but they will never advertising publicly. Just a question of image branding.

The Bangkok Airways price is 8'000 for 4 one way tickets. A return ticket is still costs 4'000 baht, hardly a "bargain". 

Free ferry crossing with Raja......:whistling:

p.s. bring your own mask and flippers :cheesy:

Have you gotten a good deal at Four Seasons recently? I contacted them 3x and was never offered a realistic rate reflecting the times. They always wanted 18,000++ and I told them I'm not paying that again. 8000++ for one of their standard rooms maybe and even that is pushing it.

He said that Bangkok Airways are offering more flights as from Tuesday and that they have a special deal that buying one ticket gives the holder the right to fly FOUR times. 

If you are offering 4 flights for the purchase of just one ticket or 75% off, your airline is in serious financial trouble either now or later when those flight tickets should be at full price

Did you stay with them previously? If the answer is no, do not expect any discount from them. That's their policy.

I think that you are confused.

If you are a resident, you do not do quarantine (unless you leave and come back).

It is a bargain compared to the 'normal' price pre-covid. 9.000 baht return - or more.

"Rooms that were 100,000 baht to foreigners are being offered to Thais for a few thousand." 

 

I am an Expat here on retirement extension and I have been living here for almost 30 years. Whatever I do ... sadly I will never be a Thai...

The devil will be in the detail. i interpret it if you buy a ticket it will entitle that ticket holder to 3 free additional flight to use later. I dont think you can just buy 4 tickets for a family at that price.
