The Royal Thai Police have entered the hotel business.
National Police Chief Pol. Gen. Chaktip Chaijinda hosted the May 17 opening ceremony of the Cop Seminar & Resort the Rong Poh area of Banglamung District. The 106-rai hotel used to be a police rehabilitation center until the national police force spent just under 300 million baht to turn it into a resort open to the public.
Chaktip marked the opening with a merit-making ceremony that saw police offering food to nine monks from Photisampan Temple.
The publicly-funded business has 80 hotel rooms, a swimming pool and seminar center able to seat more than 300. The property already is being expanded with 34 villa-style accommodations under construction, with completion slated for next year.
The police chief said the RTP is considering building another resort in Phetchabun.
