BANGKOK (The Nation/ANN): Hotels across the country are expected to restart this month, though in low numbers, as bookings were not high enough, Thai Hotels Association (THA) president Suphawan Thanomkiatphum said, urging them to offer promotions.
“[All or most hotels] will reopen in July, when more Thais dare to venture out for tourism, ” she said, advising all hotels to offer promotions in both June and July to attract customers.
Suphawan said that people’s purchasing power would be particularly monitored this month and the next amid an easing in the lockdown.
She welcomed the government’s plan to use room discount coupons to promote tourism.
She said the Tourism Authority of Thailand is deciding whether this campaign will hand out the coupons to the public or disburse cash into a specified system.
Meanwhile, Asset World Corporation director Wallapa Traisorat said it has reduced the price of its rooms from around Bt5,000 to Bt1,000 under a discount campaign called 'Bangkok Holidays Lifestyle' and 'A Gift of Happiness'.
Under the promotion, the Athenee Hotel and Bangkok Marriott Hotel have reduced their room rates. The reduced price does not include breakfast. - The Nation/Asia News Network
