Thai authorities descended on a luxury villa yesterday after complaints that it was operating as a hotel without a license and not paying tax.
The property is a set of 23 individual villas on 70 rai of land on Cherng Mon hill in Bo Phut. The five star facility is worth a billion baht, reported Naew Na and was built in 2011.
Rentals go for 30,000 to 130,000 a night.
Each villa is separately owned and the whole property is run by a company like a hotel with a percentage of the profits going to the owners.
The manager of the company running the business will be further interviewed today after a raid by military, protection agencies and customs yesterday.
Complaints had been received by the hoteliers’ association on the holiday island that the facility was unfairly impacting their members and the economy by not having a license and not paying the required amount of tax for a hotel.
