The 67-year-old king, who is also known as Rama X, has apparently booked the entire Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl after the hotel got a ‘special permission’ from the district council to accommodate the king and his entourage.

As per some reports, the four-star hotel got the permission to accommodate them because ‘the guests are a single, homogenous group of people with no fluctuation.’ However, it is still uncertain if the king’s four wives are living in the hotel or not.

The reports also asserted that 119 members of the entourage were sent back to Thailand on the suspicion of being infected with the Coronavirus.

The king has received flak from the people of Thailand for his actions. By criticising the king, these people have broken the lèse-majesté laws, under which those who criticize or insult the monarchy could face a 15 year imprisonmentAmid the Coronavirus outbreak in the entire world, Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn has isolated himself along with his entourage, which includes a ‘harem of 20 women,’ at an Alpine luxury hotel in Germany.
