Government Orders Mass Phuket Hotel Closure

Category: Hotels, Posted:03 Apr 2020 | 09:08 am

All licensed hotels in Phuket province have been ordered closed by the Governor’s office effective Saturday 4th April.

Those hotels that still are open and have guests are not allowed to accept new guests.

For those with guests, they must report to the district offices. Once there are no guests, hotels must close.

Only hotels that are being used by the government as hospitals or for observation of those with COVID-19 syndromes can be open at this time.

Yesterday, in an independent survey of members of the Phuket Hotels Association 10% of properties were closed. While when asked if they were planning to close temporarily nearly 48% said yes.

All of that has changed now and the island is now faced with mass hotel closures
