Thailand’s playboy king has taken over a luxury German hotel to isolate from the coronavirus — along with a harem of 20 women, according to reports.
Reports from German tabloid, Bild, claims the 67-year-old booked out all of the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in Bavaria after getting the green light from local officials.
The hotel is supposed to have closed down like all others in the region but has received “special permission” from the district council to accommodate the king’s huge entourage.
But rather than isolate, he moved in a harem of 20 concubines along with a team of servants.
The king, widely known as Rama X, planned an even bigger party — but 119 members of his entourage were forced to return to Thailand amid fears they had the potentially deadly virus, the report said.
It is unclear if the wealthy King’s four wives are also staying in the four-star hotel in the Alpine resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
News of the monarch’s self-isolation was met with anger by tens of thousands of people in his homeland, who risked breaking the country’s lèse-majesté laws by slamming him online.
Under the archaic laws, anyone who insults or criticizes the monarchy faces up to 15 years behind bars.
But a hashtag which translated to ‘Why do we need a king?’ appeared 1.2 million times on Twitter within 24 hours of news breaking he was in Germany, reports The Times.
