"For platinum members, there's a weekly management cocktail on wednesdays, drinks (wine, beer, mojito, hard liquor) and some pretty good amuse bouche provided. It seems that only a few of the platinum members will receive the "invite", but if anyone is there on wednesday nights, try your luck at the club lounge to RSVP for the event."

Dear ALL FOREIGNERS,

Please cancel your trip to Thailand until the end of June (at least).

I live in BKK and I can tell that the situation is gonna get much worse. Travel ban policy and even City lock down are most likely to be imposed SOON.

Stay safe to all.

Have you got M suite upgrade? I would think so.
Sorry I am just a regular guest on a third party booking so no upgrades. Doubt my LTG would have got anything further in any case.

The breakfast spread got lighter each day, still more than enough but things started reducing

I am sensing that as well, flying back to SYD tomorrow (03/20) as long as TG475 operates. Flight looks full to SYD but quite light ex-SYD back . Might online check in now just on case.

Im normally not a scaremonger but my gut says 1 April for full lockout, the current partial closure of bars spa clubs etc is just the first course so people can get the hang of it ... then boom time come 1 April.

Completely disagree with this. Can you explain how the situation is getting worse? My gym is currently closed (first world problem) but I have just been for a run in the park which was packed. In about half an hour I am going for a drink in my local, a pub. Yes there is supposedly a ban on pubs being open but restaurants are open as normal so I am guessing the pubs have now classed themselves as such.

Would I rather get on a flight back to the UK where shelves in all the supermarkets are completely bare and people are fighting over toilet roll? No thanks!

As I said just a gut feeling I went to Rod Fai Market at Ratchada earlier tonight and it was dead, all the regular sit in stalls (eg the bbq rib place, the pork bone spicy soup place) all had very little people if any. These places are usually wait-for-a-table place. Most of the aisles you could look straight down to the other end. Obviously all the shipping container bars were shut.

Personally this coronavirus-mania-pandemonium is overblown in my lay man's opinion, if I was that petrified I would have cancelled this trip. Now on average sadly 1,000 people die around the world every ten minutes for whatever reasons, so every two hours that goes by, more die that from that than covoid19 has in 75 days.

I know it is not about me, so I do practice good hygeine, spacing where possible, will avoid more crowded places where possible.

There are certainly less tourists here yes, but a lot of things are still the same. The supermarkets have as many people as normal, no more no less. The BTS is just as busy as it always is. Some malls are really quiet whilst others are still fairly busy.

As for hotels, to stop going too much off topic - the prices in my opinion havent really dropped. A lot of Marriott BKK hotels are a similar price to normal. The usual suspects in the sub 3k (before fees), Aloft, four points etc are that price a lot of the time anyway. Overall I would say most are 500thb cheaper, which is hardly a deal breaker.

Same for Koh Samui and Phuket, some are actually more than what I paid this time last year - I have paid less at at least four different hotels on Phuket than current prices. Koh Samui, the W for example is hovering around 17,500 per night, when normally around 18,000 hardly a doomsday price!

Ahhhh and bingo, there we have yet another person who skipped basic math class in school and has never heard the word "exponential."

Just shows many people in BKK are so ignorant. On the surface it looks normal but underneath who knows. I doubt the published numbers by Thai officials, just better act now than being sorry later.

This is such an emotional issue and instead of accepting differences of opinions - and I did qualify with my lay man's opinion, not a mathematcian, a medical specialist or anything elses. Your comfort vs fear level is different to mine, and different to the next person and that is totally OK. We are alll different and amazing at the same time. In fact we could go to the same basic math class, sit side by side, you might understand what exponential means, and I might not have - even though we had the same teacher. Did it make any of us wrong? You got it and I didn't, nobody is wrong.

I am a local BKK resident.

The outbreak situation is gonna get MUCH WORSE soon.

Starting today (22nd March BKK time), many gathering places in BKK and nearby provinces will be almost completely shut down until 12 Apr. Only essential stores like supermaket, restaurants, drug stores will be allowed to open.

Actually, by definition, that makes you wrong.

Blissful ignorance.

This hotel and others closing until April 15 (so far)

https://www.bangkokpost.com/business...bangkok-hotels

The five hotels being closed are: Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen's Park Hotel, DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel, Le Meridien Bangkok Hotel, The Okura Prestige Hotel Bangkok and the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse.

Good part is that workers are being paid (with some conditions - like have to stay at home). Many other hotel groups are announcing closures.

May get worse as the PM just announced nationwide emergency (?for one month) starting on March 26 - details not clear yet.

This is in addition to the Avani and Anantara hotels which are operated by the Minor Group.

Yes, the hotel also specifically stated (in the rate detail) that you won’t get any platinum benefits (breakfast, lounge access, upgrade, etc.). You will earn elite night credit and points. The breakfast will be extra at 353 THB/person net. (Total rate with breakfast for 2 is 999+300x2 = 1599++THB/night)

personally i would go for the JWM at the rate of 1997++ THB/night (currently running promo). This rate is inclusive of breakfast and normal platinum benefits.
