Top 10 Luxury Homes in Thailand (that you can buy) | The Thaiger

HEAVENS (Koh Samui)

This exclusive home, to be completed in October 2019, is one of only 6 villas in The Heavens project located on Koh Samui island, in the sheltered Gulf of Thailand. While this 5 bed and 5 bath villa is in walkable distance to the famous Lad Koh Viewpoint, the views from the villa itself are even better. Chaweng beach, the city, and the neighboring island of Koh Phangan are all visible, (reachable in 20 minutes by speedboat if you want to check out the Fullmoon party or Half-moon parties), there is also an observatory and telescope onsite available for use by residents.

LUXURY HOUSE ASOKE SUKHUMVIT 21 (Bangkok)

Living in one of Asia’s biggest cities, condo life can be great, but some would rather have their own private homes in Bangkok. With homes like this, it’s easy to see why. This spacious and sunny villa is located near several prestigious Thai, and international schools in quiet Asok; a neighborhood popular with tourists for its easy accessibility, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Big enough for friends and family to stay with 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, this villa is in convenient walking distance to both the skytrain as well as the subway – but still has its own parking if you would rather drive around the city. But you might not want to leave at all, with your own private pool, gym, garden, and full kitchen.

THE CAPE RESIDENCES (Phuket)

If you’ve ever wanted to live in Thailand, or have a tropical island vacation, The Cape Residences is a great place to enjoy a luxurious holiday. It is set on a quiet and exclusive wooded peninsula with view of Phang Nga Bay and its famous natural skyscrapers, the limestone islands that dot the sea. The project was designed by architect Jean-Michel Gathy, who has worked for some of the region’s most famous luxury hotel brands like Banyan Tree and The Mandarin. He’s now lent his talents to this collection of elegant private residences that include 24 hour security, tennis courts, steam rooms, private pools, as well as access to a world class spa and restaurant.

NORTHSHORE (PATTAYA)

This 5 bedroom penthouse condo in Pattaya is far from the usual expectations of condo life in Asia. With a private pool and private gym, views of the city, the sea, and mountains, it’s easy to forget that you’re living in a condo in this 29th floor duplex – especially with almost 1000 square meters to relax in after walking back from the beach or Pattaya’s nighttime entertainment.

PALM HILLS RESIDENCE (Hua Hin)

This home in the Palm Hills Golf Club and Residence is the perfect golf getaway for someone who wants the peace and quiet of living outside Thailand’s major cities, while still being able to enjoy a world class golf course and western amenities. After finishing a round among the palm trees dotting the property and taking in panoramic views of mountain ranges surrounding the resort, there is a private pool, jacuzzi, sauna, and clubhouse available before having a relaxing meal at the onsite restaurant. Slightly less expensive than similar homes in Bangkok or Pattaya, this could be a great retirement home in Thailand, a holiday timeshare, or rental opportunity in Hua Hin.

BAAN ROMAN (Chiang Mai)

It might not be for everyone, but walking into this house in Chiang Mai, will feel like walking into your own mini Palace of Versailles. Full of bright and wide open rooms, the 2,200 square meter home is covered in hardwood floors and marble tile, with some recessed and high ceilings – making it easy to keep cool in this tropical country. The classical theme includes spiral staircases, and even some Doric and Corinthian style columns. Despite the classic look, it’s not without modern conveniences like a jacuzzi.

THE ESTATES (Koh Samui)

Removed from the touristy areas and located in the quiet north eastern section of Koh Samui island, Laem Yai, this house is still just a short motorbike ride away from the busy Chaweng beach or Lamai beach. The two story, three bedroom house is one of just fourteen in the Estates Samui development. It includes two onsite restaurants serving both international and Thai food, a spa and health club, yoga pavilion, tennis (with lights for nighttime matches), golf, as well as beach and water sports. The villas feature an unobstructed panoramic view of the ocean with floor to ceiling glass, and master bedrooms include their own private pools.

CHARMING FOX (Koh Samui)

Koh Samui seems to be a favorite for builders and developers, as there’s no shortage of luxury vacation rentals and dream homes. This three floor, eleven bedroom villa is no exception. Bophut is quaint fishing village, but closer to Chaweng than Laem Yai. The property makes great use of the natural landscape by nestling itself into the rising mountains and giving a great view of the surrounding mountains and jungle as well as the Gulf of Thailand. When not taking in the sights, one can relax in the private pool or garden, or lounge out in the sun deck.

AYARA SURIN (Phuket)

While Koh Samui has countless options for luxurious island getaways, Phuket is easily one of its biggest rivals. One great example of what a holiday home in Phuket has to offer is this three floor, six bedroom villa in the Ayara Surin development, which has only 21 other units. The infinity saltwater pool looks out to the Andaman Sea, and after swimming there’s a jacuzzi, spa, and bar available to really enjoy your holiday. All this, and still just a walk to Surin beach.

SUKHUMVIT 31 (Bangkok)

While some Bangkok residents are relegated to living in thirty square meter apartments, there are still opportunities to enjoy spacious dream homes. In Bangkok, there are plenty of private homes if you’re looking for an alternative to condos. This five bedroom house in Sukhumvit, includes a massive garden surrounded by privacy walls, its own pool, balcony and terrace, and a full western kitchen. Covered parking is included, but it’s also a short ride to the subway.

Weakness in the BKK condo market

Weakness in the BKK condo market | The Thaiger

Property consultants, Edmund Tie & Company – South East Asia – report that the new condo supply for 2019 is ‘unlikely to increase’ and that sales rates are disappointing in Q3.

Their report says that the take-up rate of newly launched condominium projects in Q3 in Bangkok’s CBD dropped from last year’s 58% to only 31%, year on year. This is even lower than the performance in Q2 which was 46%.

Developers are acknowledging that there is a weaker demand for residential units and a significant drop in overall supply.

The three highest performing condo sale segments were the ‘luxury segment’, followed by the ‘super luxury’ and ‘Grade A’ segments.

The average price for condos has remained flat for Q3, compared to Q2 – around 330,000 baht per square metre – but this is still a 32% increase when compared to the same quarter in 2017, according to the report.

But Edmund Tie report that the figures are just a minor ‘blip’ following big rises in demand and sales over the past three years. They report that the new condominium supply in the CBD during Q3 was 1,636 units, rising from 852 in Q2, 2018 – a 92% increase in new units hitting the market.

For the office sector, their report says that rents will continue to increase gradually in the final quarter of this year and into 2019, driven by limited supply.

“There will be an increased demand for office condos in Bangkok.”

They say office developers remain focused on providing open-plan office space close to public transport nodes.

King Power International Group has opened what is being marketed as the world’s biggest glass-bottomed skywalk.

The new tourist (and local) attraction is on the rooftop of the 78 storey Mahanakhon building on Narathiwat Road in Bangkok’s Bang Rak district. Mahanokon is Thailand’s tallest building at 314 metres.

The glass skywalk has 360 degree panoramic view, vertically and horizontally. Standing on the glass platform you can see right around the Bangkok skyline and beyond. You can also look directly down, 314 metres below, to the street – not for the faint-hearted.

The building is equipped with a fast elevator which can reach the 74th floor from the ground in just 50 seconds.

King Power International (who have naming rights for the skyscraper) CEO Aiyawat Srivadhanaprabha said the glass-bottomed skywalk represents another important step and a pride for the Thai company.

“I believe that tourism is not just an engine to drive the country’s economy, but also a gate toward the building of sustainable confidence and promotion of Thai identity in the eyes of the global community,” said Aiyawat, an heir to the business empire of Vichai, the owner of Leicester City who died in helicopter crash recently.

The building features outdoor and indoor observation decks on the 78th and 74 floors respectively, modern shopping malls, varieties of both Thai and international food and duty-free shops (of course).
