Business Terms and Conditions

Nui Beach Club

The beach itself, as with all other Thai beaches, is public land but all the land around it is private. In many countries in the world there is a public right of way to access a beach, but there is no such law exists in Thailand. Free access to the beach can be gained from Dragon’s Cape or direct from the sea. However if you then enter the beach club you will be charged the same club entrance fee of 100 THB. Given that the club fee of 100 THB entitles the you to free use of all the clubs facilities plus complimentary WiFi and drinking water we struggle to understand why any customer has any issue.

Warning in Relation to Defamation

People should be aware that if the club experiences any form of Defamation we will address the matter in accordance with the Royal Thai Criminal Code Act 1956. It should be noted that Defamation in the Royal Kingdom of Thailand constitutes a criminal offence pursuant to sections 112, 326 and 328 of the criminal code which can carry a maximum penalties of up to 15 custodial sentence.  In recent times many tourists and non-immigrant guests of the Royal Kingdom has made defamatory comments of social media platforms thinking its safe to do so. Consequently, many have been successfully prosecuted pursuant to the Royal Thai Criminal Code 1956 which has caused controversy internationally. For the guilty parties it is little solace whilst they are serving their custodial sentence in a Royal Thai Prison. So if any customer has a compliant please address direct to Management Staff at the Beach in a private environment in order to avoid committing Defamation and so we can deal with your compliant in an acceptable professional manner. If you don’t agree with the Law of the Land then please visit or live in a different country.
