With the (unconfirmed) announcement that, as of November 1st 2021, no quarantine would be required for admission to Thailand, it is believed that the country and Koh Samui will see an inflow of visitors during the regular high season months.
It has been a long time coming, and many businesses, those that have survived, will be thankful for the opportunity after a difficult two years.
It is not yet obvious how it will function, but depending on your circumstances, you will have a few possibilities.
Tourists who are properly vaccinated will be permitted to stay at their preferred lodging.
Those who have not been properly vaccinated would most likely have to go through Bangkok quarantine again, although it may be for a shorter period of time than the 14-days.
When scheduling travel, you should verify your individual specific status with the Embassy, since nothing is clear or verified yet.
All of this, however, is fantastic and welcome news!
