Lt Siwa Saneha of Phi Phi Island Police Station told the Phuket Gazette, “We received a report at about 9pm yesterday, that two tourists’ bodies were found in the same hotel room at the Phi Phi Palms Residence.We rushed to the hotel with medical officers from Koh Phi Phi Hospital and a rescue team.”

The sisters, one aged 20 and the other aged 26, checked in to the hotel on Tuesday.

“They went out and came back to their room that same night, but stayed in their room all day on Wednesday,” he said.

It was not until yesterday that hotel staff became concerned for the women’s welfare.


The deaths of these two women follow an American and two Norwegian tourists dying of suspected poisoning after staying at ‘The Laleena guesthouse’ on Phi Phi Island in 2009.

Seven deaths in Chiang Mai at the Downtown Inn, with a possible link to bug spray.


Note 1: As far as I know, there is still no definitive answer to the cause; but I suspect it was, and is, insecticide.

Note 2: The Downtown Inn is in the preocess of being demolished.

Note 3: I don’t know for a fact but I believe these tragedies will CONTINUE, unless the Thai government acts to ban the use of certain types of insecticides.
