[Special Advertising Feature] Minor International joins forces with Kajima Corporation, one of the oldest and largest construction companies in Japan, to create an exclusive residential sanctuary with five-star resort facilities in Phuket.
The development duo garnered two awards at the 14th PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2019 for real-estate project Avadina Hills by Anantara. They also earned the Best Luxury Housing Development (Phuket) award and claimed the highly coveted Best Housing Development (Thailand) award for the 50-50 venture.
Set on the stunning western, sunset side of the island, along Phuket’s desirable ‘Millionaire Mile’, which is a luxurious enclave of high-end villa properties, the development is just a 20-minute drive from the airport. Each villa boasts uninterrupted coastal views stretching beyond Layan Beach.
Set on close to 100 rai, with 16 superbly appointed villas, the design ethos encapsulates modern design quality and a grand tropical-island lifestyle identity that is as impressive as it is aspirational. Villas feature between four-eight bedrooms, ranging from 2,785-3,800 square metres, with two main types of villas, including a private balcony in the master bedroom for the larger residences.
Judges were impressed by the individual and combined talents expressed within the project plans.
“Luxury hospitality developers, Minor International, take onboard the Japanese aesthetic of co-developers Kajima Corporation at Avadina Hills by Anantara through the diligent use of space, minimalism by superbly utilising clean lines, and modern, bold design principles within the inspirational context of island life on Phuket; crafting refined Phuket villas boasting meditative vistas out over the blue waters of the Andaman.”
The villa designs open spaces within, with spacious open-plan living areas, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows instilling a wonderful connection with the outdoor terrace and natural surroundings. This is beautifully extended with an infinity pool while granite floors and teak ceilings add warmth and a coastal-living ambiance. Private gardens separate each property, while the whole development is nestled amidst green forested hillsides.
The intuitive understanding of resident expectations and the luxurious level of villa developments on the island expressed by Minor International and Kajima Corporation are epitomised by the flexibility of adding a third tier to the villas. This allows for additional bedrooms and/or villa-style features, from a private cinema to a gym or spa.
In terms of facilities, residents are promised access to the award-winning Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, a few minutes’ drive away, reached by a private road for residents; further crafting the vacation-style characteristics of the development. Meanwhile, the fully furnished villas are designed to accommodate live-in staff from butlers to private chefs.
The finesse of Avadina Hills by Anantara is in the confident simplicity of every detail of the design and execution that belies world-class know-how in creating the essence of a relaxed residential experience by the sea.
