A summer vacation spent at a beachfront resort, or secluded in a jungled villa on the flanks of a mountain? This will be the dilemma for potential investors of the newest luxury real estate project, MontAzure, set to open its doors next year on Kamala Beach on the western shore of Phuket, home to some of Thailand’s most popular beachside resorts.
A tropical climate, access to culinary delicacies, and a prime, sun-soaked locale make this new development on the kingdom’s favourite party island the perfect hideaway for urbanites looking to take a break from their hectic city lives.
A mixed-use development comprising expansive beachside condominiums, a luxury resort, 13 high-end villas, and a choice of beachside culinary options, MontAzure stretches across 72 hectares of prime property, including 100 meters of absolute beachfront, and is the largest real estate development for Phuket to date.
“We have a big piece of land that has nice ocean and mountain views and we’ve creating a unique place that, we believe, is totally different from other projects,” says Setthaphol Boottho, MontAzure’s executive director.
The development’s first phase is Twinpalms Residences MontAzure, which will offer 75 one- and two-bedroom units housed within a cluster of 11 low-rise buildings, with world-class resort services for potential investors looking to embrace a true tropical lifestyle, while also making a profit in return. The condominiums will include private rooftop pools that can be accessed via private elevators. For more privacy and luxury, the 13 villas, which will be situated on the mountainside, will feature high ceilings, complemented by infinity pools and balconies overlooking the Andaman Sea.
The creative drive behind the development is master planner and architect Martin Palleros of Tierra Design. “It’s a hotel, but you also need to have a real estate component that customers can sell and raise money. So, it’s all about balance,” says Palleros, explaining why he’s included real estate in this project. “We need to target different groups: if you want to invest or if you’re looking for a nice place to live.”
New creations always stem from a foreseen demand for the product, and MontAzure is the perfect example. “In Phuket, there’s a growing market for people that hope to live here,” explains Palleros. “People are becoming more conscious about health and living longer so they’re now trying to find places that besides work, they can relax and enjoy life.” Palleros sees the tendency for people to look for a holiday escape for wellness purposes. “People want to not just go and spend a holiday but they want to make sure they go to a place they can eat healthy food, do a bit of yoga, a bit of activity, and learn about health and detox the body.”
To add to customers’ wellness experience in their second home, the project has a strong focus on unique design and the provision of private space. Aside from elements that reflect the local culture, which can be seen on the property’s roofs, soaring ceilings, and four-story clusters, the blending of the natural landscape and the project’s interiors play a role in maximising the views and offering a seamless link between the place and the mind.
Catering to investors looking to buy a second home as a vacation house, MontAzure has a rental programme that will allow owners of the flat to rent out their units when they’re not in use, also as a way of earning a reward from the investment; while the condo will offer the exact same services owners can get at a resort, including room services and cleaning services, offered even during the days when owners are not staying in the apartment.
