Explorient Launches Luxury Phuket Sandbox & Samui Plus Beach Escapes

Updated: Nov 5, 2021

Explorient launches Two Luxury Beach Escape Packages to Phuket & Krabi and Koh Samui & Phangan Island as Thailand Reopens.

September 20th, 2021 - Explorient Travel Services, Inc., launches two luxury beach escapes under Thailand’s Phuket Sandbox and Samui Plus programs as the country reopens to vaccinated international travelers.

Having closed its borders to international travelers for nearly 1.5 years, the Land of Smiles is once again ready to welcome international travelers, albeit with caveats, to several island destinations as part of its phased reopening plan. The Phuket Sandbox 7+7 allows passengers to visit Phuket its associated “Sealed Route” destinations such as Krabi, Koh Phi Phi, Khao Lak and Koh Yao. Under this scheme, passengers must spend the first 7 nights in Phuket before extending to a second destination in the sealed route.

For travelers who wish to travel elsewhere in Thailand, 7 consecutive nights must be spent at the second destination before doing so. On the other hand, there are no minimum stay requirements for those leaving the country. For example, one can take a 5-night trip to Phuket and exit Thailand immediately thereafter. The same protocol applies for the Samui Plus program which imposes a 7-night stay in Koh Samui before moving on to its sister islands Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.

In addition to Thailand’s Sealed Route protocol, there are several additional requirements for international arrivals. Travelers must be vaccinated, come from a low to medium risk country, carry travel insurance to cover medical expenses of up to $100,000, adhere to various pre and post arrival protocols and have prepaid air tickets and reservations at government approved hotels.

In compliance with the Phuket Sandbox and Samui Plus reopening plan, Explorient offers two luxury beach holiday packages to these the islands.

With a starting price at US$4,350 per person, the 10-night Reinvigorated Phuket & Krabi Package includes a choice of two accommodations options, private boat trips of beautiful Phang Nga Bay and Hong Island and a once-in-a-lifetime elephant experience at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary.

On the Gulf of Thailand side, the Reinvigorated Samui & Phangan features an all-inclusive stay in private pool villas, blissful spa packages, and a day out at sea on a privately chartered speedboat over a 10-night stay priced at $4,875 per person for October travel.
