Frequently Asked Questions
Is Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort an Alternative Quarantine (AQ) hotel?
Yes, Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort is an alternative quarantine (AQ) facility as certified by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health (MoPH).
Why do AQ guests have to stay in the hotel for one night longer than the designated quarantine period in some cases?
The Ministry of Public Health requires AQ guests to quarantine according to the arrival time of their flight into Thailand. If the flight arrives 12.01 am – 6.00 pm, this will count as Day 1 of the quarantine. If the flight arrives 6.01 pm – 12.00 midnight, this counts as Day 0.
How do AQ guests travel from the airport to the hotel?
The hotel’s AQ packages include a pick-up by Bangpakok 9 International Hospital from your arrival airport. It will be a shared van with maximum capacity of four guests.
