Chic Locations is delighted to have teamed up with TAT (Thailand Tourism Authority) and Thai Airways to offer some rather different holidays. They are specifically targeted towards clients who are prepared for two weeks hotel quarantine in Bangkok followed by up to 6 weeks of travel around Thailand.
The Quarantine Arrangement Includes:
Arrival transfer, 3 room service meals daily, 24/7 Nurse attendance
2 temperature checks daily and at least 2 covid tests, usually on days 5 and 13.
Hotels have breakout relaxation areas after test on day 5.
All rooms have TV and wi-fi facilities.
*Extra Night Free in Bangkok!
After your required nights in quarantine, why not have an extra night free (on breakfast basis/ no medical services ), so you can fully enjoy this incredible city and explore what you have longingly overlooked for the last two weeks.
*Offer applicable to Lancaster and Avani+ hotels only.
Phuket is one-hour flight south. Known for its superb beaches and nightlife, our chosen hotels there are the superior first-class Dusit Laguna, Nai Harn Resorts and the luxurious Rosewood.
Travel 70 minutes by road north of Phuket Airport and you arrive at the more escapist Khao Lak where our chosen partners are La Vela and The Sarojin.
Take 3-day Excursions to the River Kwai & Erawan waterfalls and the temples of Sukhothai.
The prices below give you just an indication of what can be offered. As with everything arranged by Chic Locations, these can all be modified to your own requirements once the quarantine period has elapsed.*
Prices based on Thai Airways special Tourist Visa promotional fares subject to confirmation at the time of booking, departures each Sunday from Heathrow.
We have shown example prices based on staying 27 nights in Thailand but you can extend up to 60 nights. Just ask us for suggestions – if you are time rich, this is a nice alternative to bleak Northern European winters.

What you will require:
Passport with an absolute minimum validity of 6 months from your return date to UK. Comprehensive travel insurance, with specific medical cover against Covid hospital care of at least £250,000. Acceptance to download the Thailand Chana travel app onto your mobile phone and/or Thai tracking bracelet to be worn throughout your time in destination. Plus most importantly, TV visa ( tourist visa) with approval to travel – this is obtained at the Thai Embassy in London and is issued subject to sight of our travel confirmation of arrangement. Typically this takes 4 days to approve and usually, a minimum of three weeks prior to planned departure is required. As is common with visa applications these days be prepared for some sensitive questions. This may include sight of a positive bank account statement, especially if some of your time in Thailand has not been pre-booked by Chic Locations.
Our confirmation will detail the accommodation pre-booked for you throughout your stay. Should you wish to make your own arrangements in Thailand after the quarantine period has elapsed, this can be permitted but you will need to show proof of financial resources to cover your complete stay. All arrangements must include return air travel with a date not exceeding 2 calendar months (60 days) in Thailand. There is no minimum stay requirement other than the initial 15 nights in quarantine. You will need to arrive in Thailand with proof of a negative Covid -19 PCR test taken 72 hours prior to your UK departure.
The visa cost is normally around £250 per person but, as part of this promotion, the London office of the Thailand Tourism Authority has agreed to absorb the cost for UK nationals. *Different conditions may apply to Non-UK nationals residing in the UK, please enquire. The arrangements are limited to Thailand only. Combinations with neighbouring countries are not permitted.
