Most Thai naturist resorts remain open and bookable … at this stage during the Covid-19 battle

Naturist resorts in Thailand are not exempted from the general restrictions imposed on hotel businesses in Thailand. But the restrictions vary from province to province.

Thailand has temporarily implemented strict regulations as to who can visit the country and what documentation it takes. If someone should be able to slip through, they would most likely face a 14 days quarantine upon their return to the country of origin.

This is the most painful for the Thai naturist resorts. Direct orders to close the resort completely has so far only been issued in Chiang Mai for Oriental Village Chiang Mai.

Here is a list from the resorts of the current situation. The list will be completed as we hear from all the resorts.

Barefeet Naturist Resort in Bangkok is open and fully bookable for guests. But since the Bangkok Metropolotan Administration has ordered all restaurants and spa's to close until 12 April the resorts is not open for day visitors until then. Hotels are specifically allowed to continue to let guests use the restaurant, sit in the garden, swim in the pool and use the sauna. So to make up for the lack in foreign customers and the missing day visitors, Barefeet has lowered the room rates to 1000 THB for a single room and 1500 THB for a double room.

Barefeet Heaven Hill Naturist Resort in Trang is open and fully bookable. The resort is currently under no restrictions at this time. But since the international travel restrictions makes it impossible for overseas guests to come to Thailand, the resort has decided to lower the price to be more attractive to Thai naturists. The rooms are now sold at 1000 THB for a single room and 1500 THB for a double room.

Harmony Resort Rawai in Phuket is open and bookable. But the restrictions imposed on Phuket makes it not possible to accept day visitors. Harmony Resort has reduced the room rates to 1500 per night including breakfast with immediate effect.

Oriental Beach Village in Phang Nga is open and fully bookable. The resort reports a few guests are there. The Suit rooms are offered at 2000 THB.

Oriental Village in Chiang Mai is until 31 March closed and not bookable. After that it is possible to book.
Update (25.03.2020): Open and bookable, but spa and pool must remain closed.

Phuan Naturist Village in Sattahip is open and bookable but next guest booking is on 7 April. They are a couple coming from England and they are up to date nn the travel restrictions but still plan to come.
Bruce Kendall: "We only have one staff that lives on-site other than Jai and myself. Our staff goes home every night to their families and I am worried who they might catch it from at home and then bring it back to Phuan.  The absolute safest thing to do would be to send them home for 2-3 weeks, but I know this would wreak havoc on their lives and income."
