With ‘Phuket Sandbox’ due to launch on 1 July 2021, nine SHA Plus-certified Marriott Bonvoy properties prepare to welcome back guests with “Summer Dreaming” promotion
BANGKOK, June 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s extraordinary portfolio of 30 hotel brands, award-winning loyalty program, and endless experiences, today introduces the "Summer Dreaming" offer. The offer is available across nine hotels and resorts in Phuket, spanning eight leading brands to celebrate the return of cherished international guests from 1 July 2021.
Properties within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio including The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket, are taking part in the "Summer Dreaming" promotion to welcome back travel in Phuket.
International guests who have been dreaming of visiting Phuket for the last 15 months will soon be able to return to the "Pearl of the Andaman" following the launch of the ‘Phuket Sandbox’ program. Under this important initiative by the Government, overseas travelers can fly direct to Phuket, stay quarantine-free in world-class hotels and resorts, and soak up the blissful ambiance.
Under the "Summer Dreaming" offer, travelers who book at any participating property within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio in Phuket will enjoy preferential rates, complimentary breakfast for two, and THB 1,000 (approximately USD 32) of hotel credit per room per night, which can be redeemed for memorable meals at the resorts’ restaurants, sunset drinks at the bars, soothing spa treatments and more. So the longer you stay, the more rewarding your stay becomes.
To offer extra flexibility to guests, all bookings can be cancelled without charge up to 24 hours before the check-in date, and Marriott Bonvoy members will receive 5,000 bonus points. Signing up as a Marriott Bonvoy member is complimentary.
For truly blissful beachfront breaks, guests who book seven nights or longer under the Summer Dreaming promotion will be treated to a complimentary room upgrade and late 4pm check-out, ensuring that every couple or family can maximize their time in paradise.
From activity-packed resorts to exclusive island retreats, every guest can discover their own tropical idyll across the nine Marriott Bonvoy properties. The brand-new Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town, which is slated to open in August 2021, will allow guests to immerse themselves in Phuket’s cultural heritage, surrounded by classical architecture, museums and markets.
Under the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) newly-introduced Amazing Thailand Safety & Health Administration (SHA) Plus certification system, inbound visitors to Phuket will be required to stay at a hotel in which at least 70% of staff members have been vaccinated against COVID-19. Guests can rest assured that all of Marriott Bonvoy’s properties in Phuket have achieved SHA Plus certificates.
Properties within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio around the world uphold the highest standards of health and safety under the company’s "Commitment to Clean". The Marriott Cleanliness Council is redefining cleaning and safety standards, including enhanced cleaning technologies, adhering to social distancing protocols, food safety and more.

The Thai government’s Phuket Sandbox program, which comes into effect on 1 July 2021, allows international travelers who have received two COVID-19 vaccinations to fly directly to Phuket without the need to quarantine upon arrival, as long as they show proof of booking at an SHA Plus-certified hotel and when applying for their Certificate of Entry (CoE).
