The well-known Anantara Si Kao Resort hotel in Trang province has shut down following a court ruling that it had encroached on a national forest and a national park in Trang's Si Kao district.
The hotel halted its operations and used wooden boards to shut its entrance on Saturday.
The Supreme Court ruled to revoke the hotel’s land documents covering 37 rai of land on ground that the five-star hotel was built on national forest and Haad Chao Mai National Park land.
Most of the workers have been relocated to other branches.
The hotel has yet to demolish its buildings and relocate its assets.
