The hotel was not named but Petchphoom Hot News said on Facebook that a team of police, health and local officials had visited the hotel to remind them of the law. 

The hotel said that they had accepted a booking from 150 guests who were using a function room for activities associated with a company outing. 

Those activities were never specified to the hotel. 

Police reminded the hotel of the law relating to promotion of alcohol but no charges were made.
