Thai Hotel Closures Roll On As Force Majeure Announced

Category: Hotels, Posted:09 Apr 2020 | 16:47 pm

Thailand is continuing to see mass government mandated hotel closures on a province by province basis continue to mount.

Phuket hotels without guests have been ordered shut for nearly a week, and as guests check out, properties are asked to not accept more check ins.

Joining Phuket are popular tourism provinces including Phang Nga, Koh Samui, Chonburi  (Pattaya)  and Hua Hin amongst others.

Today, the Thai Cabinet approved a formal force majeure status for hotels that have been forced to close and employees can seek compensation from the government social security system.

This essentially allows staff who have been employed over six months to claim 62% of their  daily wage up to THB15,000.00 per month, either until hotels reopen or a maximum period of 90 days.

April is continuing to see mass disruption in the hotel and travel sector across Thailand and most industry players are asking, have we finally reached the bottom?
