the beach belongs to all thai people, what about all these resorts that block access to beaches all over the kingdom and say private beach.next they will claim they own the water .should be more public access to all beaches for all ,samui is a prime example of what not to do . you can nearly drive round the whole island and not sea the beach.

I received an email this morning from my brother-in-law in UK and it appears he has a friend, who has a friend whose family have a booking at Rayaburi Racha Resort for 10 days over the UK Easter holiday period. They had evidently seen your reports about the resort together with the negative publicity about Phuket in general, (you certainly have readers from afar) and were asking my advice as to what to do. Bluntly I replied to cancel if they could and instead explore Pak Meng, Sikao and the islands in Trang province or, better still, if they could re-arrange flights, go to Phan Thiet in Vietnam which is rather like Phuket was around 15 years ago, unspoilt, with cleaner beaches, more friendly people, uncrowded and devoid of scams.

Now the beach club society has been established to boost quality tourism...a good thing for phuket?

We've already reported on beach clubs on Phuket, Beachboy. It's a trend. Those in popular locations will do well.Those built on or over sand are suspicious. Whether they're all legal is something for the authorities to decide.
