Rawai Municipality have put a halt to the construction of the controversial luxury villas being constructed on the cliffs overlooking Ao Sane Beach.
The municipal building officers say a pool and spa were found under construction, in contravention with the approved plans.
Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos says, “the construction of four buildings, including a pool, is 70 percent completed covering an area of 16 rais in Ao Sane, Rawai .”
“At the front of the construction a pool is being built, different from the design that they have submitted. ”
“They have been ordered to pause the construction for 30 days where they have time to summit a new design for consideration of our planners.”
