Category: Hotels, Posted:01 Mar 2012 | 06:00 am

Thailand's hospitality sector is eyeing the demolition order of the Bangkok Aetas Hotel with growing interest.

By the letter of the law harsh penalties call for the jailing of the developers and possible financial costs being passed onto other parties including the architects, and project construction team should they fail to act.
Both the hotel owners and Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) who approved the permits despite a roadway access of less than 10 meters are in the hot seat.
Illegal hotels and unlicensed development continues to prevail in what has traditionally been a less than stellar regulatory environment.
According to an online poll by the Bangkok Post over 75% of readers do not believe the hotel will actually end up being demolished.
