A British tourist was found dead near a swimming pool in front of his hotel room on Koh Chang island on Wednesday.

The man, 45, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, died at Sea View Koh Chang hotel, tourist police said. The death was reported at 11.45am.

A hotel cleaner told police the man had been lying in front of his room since the early morning. She alerted the hotel’s manager, who found the man had no pulse and immediately alerted police at Koh Chang police station.

Officers determined the man had been dead for several hours. His body was sent to the Forensic Medicine Institute for a post-mortem examination.
