Samui Extra Plus hotels are alternative quarantine (AQ) hotels, and have been specially assigned for the Samui Plus programme. The Samui Extra Plus label is to differentiate them from the AQ system, as there are also AQ hotels available on Ko Samui.

All Samui Extra Plus hotels are acknowledged by Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the Royal Thai Embassy/Consulate-General processing of the Certificate of Entry (COE) application specifically under the Samui Plus programme.

In addition, the above hotels marked with * are SHA Plus-certified hotels, which meets the necessary measures to control COVID-19, and also that 70% of its workforce has been fully vaccinated. Those marked with are SHA-certified means that they have COVID-19 control measures in place but vaccination for its workforce has yet to reach the 70% criteria.

The list of Samui Extra Plus hotels is subject to change without prior notice.
