The Borphud police on Koh Samui responded to the shooting at 5:45am in Moo 4 village in Tambon Borphut.
Police said Anurak Boonkong, 44, died later at the Thai International Samui Hospital.
A .38 revolver was found near a sofa on the ground floor of the two-storey house and a suicide note was also found nearby, offering an apology to the family.
Tawan Boonkong, the son of Anurak, said his father returned from a snooker parlour at 5am and went upstairs briefly before he returning downstairs, presumably with his revolver.
