Hua Hin: Five of ten investigated hotels found to be ‘illegal’


Five Hua Hin hotels, under the spotlight in an investigation into the town’s illegal hotels, are now set to be served closure notices.

Manager Online is reporting that Somporn Patchimpetch, the head of the investigating committee, says that loopholes in the law had meant that the ten dodgy hotels had continued to operate for the last few months.

But, he added, the fate of five hotels has now been decided and they will have closure notices posted within days.

The investigating team alleges the hotels originally applied to be just residential premises but later changed to operate as regular hotels offering daily rooms. This is against the law and the accommodation’s documentation has been found to be false following examination.

Five other Hua Hin hotels are still under investigation.

Manager did not name the hotels in their story but said the five would be shut according to Article 44 of building regulations dating back to 1979.
