Phuket beach banishment drama - hotel within their rights, say district officials

District officials and the hotel at the center of a controversy have explained the situation after it appeared a tourist was being banished from the beach in Phuket.

 

An altercation on the Phuket beach had resulted in a video that was posted by Aziz Yotharak on Facebook that promised to damage tourism at the southern Thai island.

 

On Sunday governor of Phuket Noraphat Plotthong ordered his minions in to investigate. Thalang district chief Kongtho-adul Chuthong and the local kamnan spoke to the management at Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket and discovered that the stretch of beach in question is indeed owned by the hotel.

 

The hotel said that they were not banishing the tourists concerned from the beach - just asking them to move on to another section as theirs is private.

Beach can not be private land.

 

I hope the army looks into this, but I get the impression that someone (won't name, you never know) is making a lot of money here.

i did not say it could or couldn't be, i just said what was reported on thai news. the local officials have investigated and said the hotel owns the land. i'm not a thai lawyer so will leave it at that. 

**sorry talking about the other thread before this new report came out. here i simply pointed out for him there was a sign as that was what he questioned

OK guys who believe it is not private. Let me ask you a question.

  I know people who own Islands. Is their beach part of the island they own or public? They feel they own it. And people who come by boat have to request by marine radio to be allowed to go on the beach. But if people stay below high tide mark the island owners know there is nothing they can do. Some people are aware of this and do come at low tide and use the beach with no problem. Some even have fires on the beach. But high tide comes  and all i s washed away like they were never there.

Are you talking about Thailand or Canada, as you were in your earlier post:

"Not sure if it works the same here as in Canada where I come from.

  But the person who owns the beach front property owns the land to the high tide mark. So any one can use the beach from the water up to the high water mark but after that it is private land. So the hotel may have been well within their rights."
