PHUKET: A Phuket resort has been fined B10,000 for releasing untreated wastewater into a public drain that empties into the sea at Merlin Beach, south of Patong.

 

Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup confirmed to The Phuket News on Friday (Jan 24) that the resort fined was the Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa, on Muen Nguen Rd near Tri Trang Beach.

 

The fine followed an inspection last Monday (Jan 20) led by Provincial Ombudsman Athiwat Yodwan, accompanied by officers from Patong Municipality’s public health division.

It's a shame, only 10,000 Baht fine, a room for one night in this resort probably costs more!

10k is a fart in the wind. 1M might get their attention, and anyone else doing the same.

The hotels usually pay the inspectors 10,000 baht just to get rid of them

Pathetic - quick search reveals a room rate of around 7,000 for tonight!

Pathetic yes - quick search reveals only what they advertise the rate to be, not what it would be in reality

Not nice, but those pictures just look like a typical open sewer - same as in all the tourist towns here and most of the "developing" world.
