The continued presence of the COVID-19 virus across the world has taken a wrecking ball to our travel and holiday plans for the foreseeable future. However, for those of us starved of our usual international breaks but still hungry for sun-kissed skin, unforgettable new experiences — with every whim catered for — domestic travel is the answer.
Indeed, taking a holiday or short break in your own backyard is never something to be sniffed at but when you live in the grand and ancient nation of Thailand, this is doubly true. Overflowing with ancient architecture, fascinating rural communities as well as vast national parks and jungles, Thailand boasts some of the greatest landscapes in Asia. Making it almost sinful to not strike out on the road less travelled and get up close and personal with the Land of Smiles.
For those living in the capital, Bangkok, there is nothing easier than throwing some bags in the back of the car, filling the tank with gas and heading out to local destinations such as Khao Yai and Ayutthaya.
A roadtrip is ideal during the pandemic, you decide who you travel with and have total control over the vehicle’s environment and, as long as you follow the necessary health and hygiene guidance, then you can pretty much guarantee your own and your passenger’s safety. But, what do you when arrive at your accommodations, how can you be sure that your hosts have paid as much attention to your safety as you have? This is where SALA Hospitality Group comes in.
In contrast to most hotels, in Thailand and the rest of the world, the new normal has forced properties to make drastic changes to their experience to ensure they align social distancing and COVID prevention guidelines.
Not so at SALA, where privacy is already a fundamental part of their philosophy and each of its desirable boutique retreats and beach resorts, particularly in the private pool suites and villas. This means that SALA hotels naturally conform to the required safety measures, without any compromise on the guest experience. How cool is that?
