STARTING July 1 2021, the much-anticipated Thailand’s Phuket Sandbox Programme will kick-start international travel to the Land of Smiles.
With the post-Covid quest for increased emphasis on wellbeing and sustainability, Banyan Tree Group is set to welcome global guests back to its Safe Sanctuary in Laguna Phuket with experiential offerings at its Banyan Tree Phuket, Angsana Laguna Phuket and Cassia Phuket resorts.
Sustainability and wellbeing have been part of the Group’s identity since inception.
Besides connecting guests to nature and the community, its ecosystem of brand experiences will feature wellbeing elements by offering nature-oriented environments, plant-based menu options, lifestyle practices and sustainability activities during the stay.
A plethora of curated experiences include wellbeing beyond the Spa, destination dining, golf, beach activities, sea sports to family and kids programmes.
In the wake of Covid-19, the Group has continued to work closely with local authorities and partners, incorporating stringent adherence to health and safety regulations and distancing protocols while stimulating travel rebound and vibes.
Laguna Phuket has stepped up its efforts to safely restart Thailand’s tourism industry by partnering with Bangkok Hospital to launch the first hotel-based PCR test centre for Phuket Sandbox arrivals.
To ensure the safety of tourists and local residents, all arriving travellers will be required to take a PCR test upon arrival at Phuket International Airport, and then on the 6th and 12th days of their stay.
The establishment of this new facility at Laguna Phuket will enable guests to be tested quickly, comfortably and conveniently.
The PCR test centre, opening on July 1, is located in Canal Village, the retail precinct in the heart of Laguna Phuket that features more than 30 stores.
