Phuket Pads: The island’s chalk and cheese



PHUKET: Phuket is, in many ways, becoming similar to Pattaya, with more and more cheap condos popping up in Patong, Kathu and other areas of the island.

One-bedroom units from 1-3 million baht are becoming the norm to cater to the once-a-year tourist, and Thai investors are becoming eager to make an investment in Phuket’s booming property market.


Then, there are the more up-market and luxury condos and apartments which are attracting discerning buyers. These buyers do not want the hassle and costs of villa maintenance, and prefer to lock the door and have peace of mind when back in their home countries.

These buyers are looking for good design, luxury, high quality, convenience and proximity to amenities and the beach.

There is at least one exclusive development that has it all, and its apartments are much sought
after and rarely come onto the market.


Recently created in the south of the island, this development is a stylish boutique resort boasting an unusual retro-deco design with hints of Mayan-style architecture. The muted yellow and green hues of the buildings blend in with the exotic colors of the lush forest that sweeps down to Kata Beach. Each secluded apartment has stunning sea views, and guests only have a two-minute walk to the white, sandy beach below.

This apartment has two bedrooms, each with big-screen TVs; the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom comprising a large Jacuzzi and circular shower room with a double-basin vanity unit. The guest bedroom has its own private entry and a separate shower room. The showers have just been redone with beautiful mosaics.

The open-plan living area is airy and modern. There is a fully-equipped designer kitchen with gloss red cabinets and black counter tops with a built-in ceramic hob, hood and refrigerator. The lounge opens onto a large outdoor terrace that features broad sea views.

High-quality sliding doors and mosquito screens from Sun Paradise have been newly installed. There are ceiling fans in every room and an additional three on the balconies for your comfort and enjoyment.

With the accent firmly set on tranquility, comfort and contemporary style, the development offers a choice of superior apartments and facilities, which include a restaurant, a wine and cigar shop, two swimming pools, a gymnasium, business center, meeting room, high-speed wireless internet access and a spa.

Original paintings and antiques are displayed in the spa, restaurant and lobby, complementing the style of decor.

There is easy access between the 12 buildings and facilities which make up the resort, and the property is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, filled with colorful tropical plantings.

This particular seaview apartment is offered for 18.95 million baht, completely furnished and absolutely oozing luxury and quality of the highest standard. It is owned through shares in a Hong Kong company, and can be easily transferred.
