Nestled within the embrace of a private sun-kissed bay, the resort is surrounded by oceanfront beauty and quintessential experiences that inspire treasured moments. Discover the legendary hospitality of its people in a constant pursuit ofhappiness that salves your mind, body and soul through wellness programmes, cultural immersions or culinary journeys.

Entry regulations and Corona

The entry requirements for Thailand for vaccinated people have been relaxed steadily in the last few weeks. As of December 16, 2021, a PCR test is required before departure and an antigen test after landing. Furthermore, a registration in the Thai passport system is required and a foreign health insurance with a coverage of $ 50,000.

Details can be found on the website of the Federal Foreign Office. The ADAC website is also recommended.
(valid for Germany - please check the regulations for your country on your own.)

If the trip cannot be carried out due to restrictions on the part of official bodies, a cancellation free of charge for the customer will be made. All payments made on the travel price will be refunded.
If the implementation of the tournament only is prohibited (e.g. by a ban on sporting events, events in general etc.), we will try to offer a substitute chess program in accordance with the regulations. This does not give rise to an extraordinary free cancellation right.
