Billion baht luxury villa on Samui doesn't have a hotel license

Recommended Posts

Since they are each privately owned, then the management are only the "letting agents" for private rentals by the night/week.

This is a Hotel licence from Thailand, all properties offering daily and weekly rentals in Thailand should have one, if not its an illegal hotel. More info on the elusive Hotel licence can be found at  https://www.myillegalhotel.com/

Not quite correct. (Today! Tomorrow, who knows?)

 

Properties of 4 rooms or less or less than 20 guests can be exempt and can have just the villa/pool licence.

 

Then there are also guest houses. (Different rules.)

 

However, it is very murky out there and no one seems to be enforcing a common rule across Thailand.

 

It could all change tomorrow.

Care to comment on such stuff as "villa license" and "exemptions" - i still can't find any real info about how to apply for an exemption that works everywhere etc. ?

 

 

 

I think that you have hit the nail on the head there.

 

The people in charge seem not to have a common 'work to' list across Thailand.

 

On Samui - the owners with the villa/pool licence are being told that they are OK if they comply with the rules.

Yeah but there's no laws for this stuff, so it's fine until orbortor needs a new car

I would of thought it can't be classed as an hotel as it has individually owned plots and villas with a rental manager.

now if it was fully owned by a company of owners then it could be classed as a resort.as it looks if one owner don't rent out and all the others do,does he receive any of the income/profit.

Good idea they have on samui. Tell all these investors they will be able to rent places out for a fortune, get them to cough up loads of cash to build villas at mental cost , set up management company to keep them paying service charges every month and then after a while wait till the authorities shut them down for no licenses and then go repeat somewhere else on the island ! ££££££

So all the other hotels combined on the Island are losing 23 nightly rentals between them ? Pretty small ' impacting '.

 

Still....wrong is wrong. Get  a license and pay taxes. 

I doubt it's one bedroom per villa.

Yes they should pay tax.

Quite sure the managing company does pay taxes on their income, the villa owners of course also have to pay rental income taxes but i don't see why the managing company should be liable for this.

 

Well the fine is 10k baht per day i think, guess they can just easily pay that lol

Hard time for doing business or even wanting to have a holiday in the mafia ridden Koh's all over Thailand, where even the local islanders have fled to to the rise in corruption or racket from the poweful clans.
