This idyllic island in Thailand has long been popular with tourists for its pristine beaches, kaleidoscopic coral reefs and turquoise waters.
In recent years, however, the unexplained deaths and disappearances of many of those tourists have earned it a reputation as a death trap.
And it’s just claimed another two victims.
A millionaire hotel tycoon and his wife have been found dead in a luxury resort on Koh Tao, colloquially known as Death Island.
Their bodies were found floating in the resort’s pool last Friday, just hours after they checked in.
Disturbingly, police on the island have said CCTV cameras at luxury Jamahkiri Resort and Spa “weren’t working” on the day the couple died, fuelling mystery around what happened to the wealthy pair.
