very confused, hotel websites are still offering rooms

 

do they just turn you away when arriving and pocket the cash?

Read what I and many others have already said!

We are open for all visitors except ASQ international ones. The cost and difficulty of housing ASQ visitors and the loss of our local (Thai and foreign) guests make this a non-starter.

Book by phone directly to the hotel, or if you are concerned about being turned away, use an online major booking site who have an obligation to house you once they have confirmed the booking.

And yet they do not want to allow in the very people who can improve things? Idiots then, who can remain in poverty with no sympathy from me.

Maybe foreign tourists should boycott the area altogether, plenty of other holiday areas in Thailand. Xenophobia at it's best (or worst) ! 

I,m off to Ao Nang next tuesday for a 3 night stay in a 4* Hotel courtesy of the Governments domestic tourism boosting scheme (with my TGF) of course,third trip since they opened up the hotels late Ju

That's interested reading the obligation of a hotel booking site.

I've never used one, but in these Covid times if there was an issue, can you explain how the obligation works?

Will they find you another hotel and absorb any higher room price for example?

Under the terms and conditions we sign onto with Expedia, Agoda, Booking.com etc.:

If we accept a booking and then fail to provide a room we are obliged to find equivalent or better accommodation and to pay for it. Failure to comply means difficulty in extracting funds owed by the booking sites and, or, black-listing from these sites. In reality the booking site usually steps in and finds a hotel for them and then deducts the difference from commission owed.

Thanks for chiming in and clarifying.  Before articles such as this are published, it would help if they were vetted for accuracy and hyperbole. It would have saved a lot of grief if the headline had read,
"Krabi: Only two ASQ 'quarantine hotels' available to foreign tourists
The headline as it reads sounds like Krabi is shut to all foreigners.
