PHUKET:-- Kathu District Chief Jirawat Namatra issued an ultimatum to illegal hotel operators after locals and members of the business community filed complaints about unlicenced hotels operating in Patong.

In February, more than a thousand unlicensed hotels applied for registration as hotels after a two-month ultimatum was issued at the end of November last year by then Phuket Governor Chokchai Dejamornthan.

“We inspected the 'Boomerang Hotel' and 'Capitano Hotel' in Patong on Wednesday and found that that they were operating without a hotel business licence,” said Mr Jirawat.
