Taking a relaxed route back to Hong Kong at Baan Kilee in Koh Samui.
Looking to wash-out safely in Thailand? Or reunite with family outside of Hong Kong?
One Koh Samui villa owner is offering a special 14- to 21-day package for Hong Kong residents.
The stunning beachside property can sleep up to 20 people and boasts a full gym and yoga facilities. Hong Kong-based owner Tina Atkinson is offering the property, which is located at Lipa Noi and around 30 minutes from the airport, at cost price and up to 75% discounted to help out those trying to get back to Hong Kong.
“We run a 'WhatsApp butler service', essentially containing the villa as a bubble,” said Atkinson. “It’s no good travelling all the way to Thailand to wash-out and then catching Covid.”
Staff are available to wait on guests, but with no contact. They stay outside at all times so guests are free to enjoy the facilities without worrying about coming into contact with an infected person.
The villa is set on two acres of land and has its own fully equipped gym, pool, lawns and is located right beside the beach. A bar has even been set-up on the sand.
Staff are on-hand but cannot enter the property so guests must make-up their own rooms, change bed linen and remove rubbish from rooms. Staff can arrange daily grocery shopping or there is a chef available. Food is prepared in the neighbouring villa and placed onto tables for guests to collect.
Bookings start at US$600+ per night for six people, with a minimum six-person booking. Guests must arrange for a Thailand Pass under either the Test & Go or sandbox schemes, which can be booked via the appropriate government website. The first week of a stay in Thailand must be at a designated SHA++ hotel (details here). Once the appropriate paperwork has been arranged for the first week, the villa booking can go ahead for the rest of the stay.
Atkinson says there are also options for smaller villas and she can liaise with other Hong Kong owners to help secure dates.

The Test & Go scheme is due to relaunch on February 1, according to government officials.
Holidaymakers can now access some of Thailand's most sought after islands quarantine-free.
