Bangkok: Thai media are reporting that two Canadian sisters were found dead in their hotel room in a southern resort island.

Thai media reported on Sunday that the bodies of the sisters were found at the Phi Phi Palm Residence Hotel on Phi Phi Island. The cause of death was under investigation.

The Manager newspaper website quoted police Lt Col Rat Somboon as saying the women had probably been dead more than 12 hours when their bodies were discovered yesterday with vomit and other signs of a toxic reaction.
In a similar case in May 2009, an American woman and a Norwegian woman died after suffering severe vomiting and dehydration at a Phi Phi guesthouse. The cause of death was never determined.
