Some 170 illegal hotel and resort operators in Hua Hin have been warned to register and obtain licences within a month or they could face jail or a fine.

 

Thanon Phanpipas, Hua Hin district chief, said the operators of unlicensed hotels and resorts must register within a month from May 16 or they would face a maximum jail term of one year and a maximum fine of Bt20,000 plus a daily maximum fine of Bt10,000.

 

Thanon said he has been informed that owners of some 170 houses, pool villas and apartments have been using their premises to provide hotel services without seeking licences.

 

The district chief said the unregistered services could be substandard and would affect Hua Hin’s reputation as a tourist destination. It could also affect national security as the operators would not report foreigners staying at their places to immigration officials.
