HELLO TO ALL!
I definitely want to tell our terrible, nightmarish story that happened to Magic Garden Resort at Lonely Beach Koh Chang, for people who want to go, others and especially Matt was the owner who never find out what it was passed and the distress in which we were.
It's been one week that we were staying there ... the night of 18 to 19 November 2011, we slept peacefully with my fiance in bungallow No. 22, when I wake up screaming "there's fire, get up, out, hurry up" it was 4 am !
Shocking, I looked up and the entire roof of bungallow was on fire, I was paralyzed, he pushed me out, I could not move.
A few minutes later, while my boyfriend trying to save our business, a woman (Western) arrived and virulence, of hatred, grabs me by the hair and started to give me shots fists in the face, she dragged me to the ground and gave me a violent kick (I was completely naked ... I got out of bed)
When my fiance saw this, he abandoned our business which continued to burn to separate us, that's where the boyfriend of the woman came and broke the nose of my fiancé.
They fled when the premises have come to help, but the bungalow was no longer accessible, the flames consumed him with our business inside. People have come to put out the fire, but there was nothing left.
The owner Matt, one Dutch, us abandoned in the street if I can say, because according to him, we were not a priority but these bungalows.
He is a young man who shocked by the event went and gave us the keys to his room for us to wait the police, because in addition to the drama, the owner and his girlfriend filed a complaint against us . The last straw!
We were transferred to the police station, 10 days of procedure, anguish, they were asking 3000 euros or 120,000 baht for the bungalow when we had lost everything, we were assaulted and nearly lost his life!
We learned later that the couple was assaulted us come from Fins and we had taken for the Jews, while we are French, he would tell them after, they wanted to burn in the fire ... I 'to have goose bumps!
The owner of this resort, Matt, is inhumane, after many attempts at negotiations, after several calls to the embassy and our insurance, we are resigned to paying half the sum for out of this nightmare and to withdraw their complaint, if it was the prison!
There has never been an investigation, we will never know if the fire was of criminal origin or caused by a short circuit! The resort is not insured, that's why they wanted the money.
Fortunately the side of this drama, a chain of generosity is mounted around us, we were helped financially, we were housed for free, they lent us clothes and pschologiquement supported by people who have become our friends TODAY .
It's never happened to our attackers and Matt has stolen 1500 euros or 60,000 baht.
The Thai and Burmese staff of the resort is very nice, but the owners are hungry sharks without compassion.
I know this story is unbelievable but unfortunately true!
