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.
