20 SHA Plus Hotel You Should Spend the Night in Bangkok

In the post-pandemic period following Thailand’s opening, those living in and visiting the country must have heard of or noticed SHA or SHA Plus signs while searching for hotels and other accommodation facilities.

In case you too are wondering what they are, we have the answer here.


Background of the SHA

The Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) is the hygiene safety standard that fosters trust among service users and tourists, both Thais and foreigners. The project is operated by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health and tourism-related government and private agencies, aiming to encourage the tourism industry to prepare and improve the quality of their services in accordance with the New Normal and raise the standards in conjunction with COVID-19 sanitation measures.

As a result of that, SHA is now used as a badge to indicate that the business operators, especially the hotels, have transformed their products and services, including hygiene, which is an important factor in preventing the spread of COVID-19, with public health measures at the forefront. The SHA logo will then be provided free of charge to a variety of hotel and resort establishments who apply after they pass all requirements.

What are SHA and SHA Plus hotels (SHA+)?

There are currently two types of hygiene safety standards for hotels and accommodations in Thailand which are SHA and SHA Plus.

The TAT grants SHA certification to hotels that adhere to the Department of Disease Control’s requirements, which include having regular cleaning to pandemic-level standards; providing sanitizers and thermometers in the establishments; deploying seating arrangements and proper signage; and complying with basic protective measures for staff.

Meanwhile, SHA Plus is obviously a stricter version of SHA, with more rigorous standards. Hotels that carry the SHA Plus certificate must meet the SHA criteria plus 70% of their staff must have been fully vaccinated (at least two doses); no unvaccinated employees are allowed to have close contact with guests; and all members have been trained with COVID-19 emergency solutions.

As of today, despite the fact that all COVID-19-related regulations in Thailand have been lifted since October 1, 2022, staying in a hotel with a high level of protection is still popular among tourists and is always a good idea. As a result, we’ve selected ten of Bangkok’s best SHA+ hotels for you to consider before booking your next trip to the City of Angels.
