Greetings from AKSARA Collection, Phuket.

Sadly with the continued situation, we have had to make the hard decision to keep our most famous resortAs a quick update to all our travel partners, we are pleased that we have been able to re-open two of our resorts taking advantage of the Royal Thai Government’s “Thai Travel Together” program in which the Royal Thai Government offer to pay 40% of the guest’s room rate via AGODA.com platform. Resorts are not charged for this so we are not deduced any commissions which is fabulous and results in our local Thai and Expat guests being able to come and stay at our usual very low season rates! Originally operating until end of October, the Royal Thai Government have now extended the program until 31st January 2021.

‘Kata Sea Breeze’ closed until maybe April 2021.

IF, and we truly hope, that borders between some of our main high season generating countries, we can re-open a little sooner as we are sure that many of the large number of repeating guests are anxious and ready to return to their ‘second home’ here in the land of smiles

We are deeply saddened to see that some of our long standing partners have been closed down and we would like to pass our deepest heartfelt thanks to them all and hope to see you all again very soon back in the business of making guests dreams come true once again.

Congratulations to those who have managed to join other companies and a personal thanks to those who have contacted us from their new ‘homes’ to look at joining forces once again. This is truly heart warming.

Our team has been greatly reduced as expected, how- ever we are now working parttime from The SIS Kata, so please feel free to email us as before and we shall of course reply as soon as we can.

It has been encouraging to see some partners looking a bit further afield at the time asking for special rates to

be in place for Summer 2021 in the hope that things will start moving once again.

So from all of us here, we would like to send our virtual hugs and smiles to you all and please keep in touch.

Stay safe and we will meet again soon.
