A group of Thai tourists in Prachuap Khiri Khan returned from a night out to find two resort hotel rooms had been broken into and more than 100,000 baht of valuables stolen. 

 

Muang district police and forensic staff went to a large resort on the seafront and found doors forced in rooms B8 and B7. 

 

In one three phones and 55,000 baht in a bag were missing along with a two baht weight gold bracelet. 

 

In another a civil servant lost 10,000 baht and a teacher was robbed of 60,000. Along with credit cards and ATM cards six bank books and four house registration documents were also missing. 

 

The party of Thai tourists had gone out on Saturday night and returned at 5am to find their rooms had been broken into. 

 

Daily News reported lax security at the Koh Lak Resort on the Suan Son - Ao Noi Road. 

 

There was only CCTV at the restaurant and some of the rooms did not lock properly. 

 

Daily News said the tourists were fed up at New Year.

Why would you stay there unless it is extremely cheap and if that is the case then you got what you paid for , total insecure accommodation .

Exactly!

It all depends on the quality of care by the cheap place. I stay at a cheap place in CM (800 baht/night) and feel very secure, never a problem in a hundred nights.

 

But if out at night, my valuables are secure on my person.

That was rife some years ago robbing resorts where mainly farang stayed, in Rawai loads of small resorts they would just go around trying the sliding doors

In my wandering days, most cheap hotels that I used had hasps fitted to doors to which you could attach your own padlock.

Obviously no maintenance and no one cares about the resort.

First of all if you travel with that much money and don't secure it when you leave the room I have no sympathy for you!

 

Secondly why should we even believe that you had that much money with you, can you prove it?

I guess the thinking is that they paid in advance for the room so they had the tourists money and the CCTV in the restaurant as they had not paid yet. Why worry about CCTV when you already have their money ?
