Living in Patong has its privileges

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: With the lasting development boom in Phuket, one might find it difficult to keep track of all the new condominiums and villa projects appearing on the island’s map. That’s why Karn Jiratuntathorn, the owner of the Privilege residences in Patong is aiming for something different.

“My project is not the same as others. There are many projects coming to Phuket from Bangkok with small units and low prices. Privilege is different – the units are big and the location is great with a beautiful sea view of the whole Patong Bay. Only four, maybe five other projects have a sea view,” he says.

“This is a high-end project. Many wealthy people come to Phuket and they don’t have a big choice of high-end apartments – we’re here to change that. We’re aiming at people who enjoy luxury and high quality finishes.”

The construction, which began in 2011, is complete and the apartments are ready to occupy. Out of the 49 available units, 12 were sold during the pre-sale period. The remaining units come in different sizes and shapes. Buyers can choose from one bedroom apartments (68sqm), two bedrooms (153 sqm), three bedrooms (188sqm), and last but not least, a single penthouse sized 332sqm.

All rooms come with a plunge pool on the balconies and all apartments in buildings A and B of the four buildings the project is composed of, enjoy a beautiful sea view. The prices – depending whether or not there is a sea view – start at 85,000 to 95,000 baht per sqm for an apartment without a sea view and go up to 100,000 to 130,000 baht per sqm for an apartment with a view of Patong Bay.

The most expensive apartment – the 332sqm penthouse costs 49 million baht and the most affordable single bedroom apartment without a sea view starts at just above 6 million baht. “All this in a serene neighborhood just two minutes away from Kalim beach and a 10 minute drive from the nightlife, and shopping center of Patong.” says Khun Jiratuntathorn.

The common area of the Privilege offers a steam sauna, fitness area, infinity edge rooftop swimming pool and a small restaurant with room service available. All this combined with as many as 37 parking spaces make for an attractive package.

For customers looking for investment opportunities, the privilege operator offers a special program with 6% of guaranteed return for three years. For those who enter the rental program the operator offers 65% of the income generated by the unit.
