5 housing developments within easy reach of the Thai capital

As Thailand’s landed residences continue to embrace innovation and environmental consciousness, the allure of suburban and rural living grows stronger.

The market’s evolution, driven by a mix of economic factors, changing consumer preferences, and significant foreign investment, set the stage for a diverse range of housing opportunities​​​​​​.

The pandemic has reshaped consumer preferences significantly, with a growing expectation that homes combine the comfort of extra office space and the tranquillity of outdoor areas. This shift is also reflected in the rising popularity of sustainable and eco-friendly communities, which are becoming the new norm in residential real estate throughout the country.

Foreign investment is also playing a pivotal role with international buyers once again showing a keen interest in locales like Pattaya, Khao Yai and Hua Hin. This influx, fueled by Thailand’s recovery post-pandemic, marks the country as an attractive investment hub on the global map.

With this in mind, here are five of the most appealing villas and landed residences within proximity of Bangkok, each offering a unique blend of luxury, style, and connectivity, catering to those seeking the tranquillity of suburban living with easy access to the Thai capital.

1. La Felice Villa Hua Hin by PNP Real Estate Co., Ltd. 

Coastal charm underpins this impressive pool villa project only a few hours from Bangkok. Central to La Felice Villa Hua Hin is the cutting-edge smart-home technology found throughout the 16 single-story pool villas.

The design philosophy here is twofold: openness and intimacy. Large sliding glass doors dissolve the barrier between indoor luxury and outdoor, enhancing the sense of space. The interior decor, with its muted colours and wooden accents, meanwhile, fosters a tranquil environment, while the furniture and custom-built features accentuate the thoughtful design.

Awarded for its design excellence at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, including Best Housing Development, Best Housing Interior Design, and Best Housing Architectural Design in Hua Hin, it is bound to appeal to homeowners in search of innovative residences within easy reach of the Thai capital​.

2. Bella Del Monte by Property Perfect Public Company Limited

Bella Del Monte offers a touch of Italian elegance in Thailand’s bucolic Khao Yai region. This exclusive development features 54 three-storey villas, each with a private pool, conceived to capture the essence of Lake Como’s scenic beauty.

Set against a lakefront backdrop, the spotlight is on grandeur and comfort, showcasing high-quality materials and exquisite finishes. Moreover, the proximity of Bella Del Monte to Bangkok positions it as an ideal choice for those seeking a luxurious bolthole immersed in the nature of Khao Yai.

The Wang Nam Khiao-based development also ensures a secure and serene lifestyle with amenities like round-the-clock security, ample parking, and well-kept gardens.

This blend of luxury, location, and lifestyle amenities garnered Bella Del Monte the Best Luxury Housing Development (Khao Yai) title at the 2023 PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards.

3. Highland Park Pool Villas Pattaya by Habitat Group Co., Ltd.

Highland Park Pool Villas Pattaya is an upscale retreat conveniently located a short drive from Bangkok. The development comprises 65 units, offering two types: the Cassia Pool Villa and the Rosewood Grand Villa.

The two-storey, four-bedroom villas are designed with resort-style living in mind. Spacious interiors boast an abundance of natural light and ventilation thanks to full-length windows and double-height living areas. Sliding glass doors, meanwhile, extend the living area to the outdoors, connecting to large terraces, gardens, and private pools, thus enhancing the indoor-outdoor living experience.

Residents can also enjoy a variety of amenities, including a clubhouse, fitness room, communal pools, and children’s zones, all secured with top-notch security systems.

Highland Park Pool Villas Pattaya was recognised with awards for Best Housing / Villa Development and Best Housing Architectural Design at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards.

Additionally, Habitat Group, the developer, received accolades for Best Lifestyle Developer, Special Recognition in Community Services, and Special Recognition in Sustainable Design and Construction, further underlining their commitment to quality and sustainable living.

4. Barn Yard Khaoyai by Sammakorn-JV1 Company Limited 

Nestled amidst rolling landscapes, Barn Yard Khaoyai by Sammakorn-JV1 brings rural US-style luxury to Thailand’s countryside. The winner of Best Housing Development (Khao Yai) at last year’s PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards was acclaimed for its housing design and landscape, echoing the grandeur of traditional American farmhouses.

Each of the spacious two- and three-bedroom homes features light-filled, double-height living spaces, complemented by terraces that extend the essence of home into nature. The project’s heart lies in its communal areas: a swimming pool crafted to offer breathtaking mountain vistas, a park with lush lawns and a tranquil pond, fostering a sense of relaxation and connection with the outdoors.

Indeed, the project-also honoured with a Best Housing Landscape Design (Khao Yai) trophy-is thoughtfully integrated into the local topography, so each home feels like a natural extension of its verdant surroundings.

5. The Prospect by Grand Paradise Villa 

The Prospect distinguishes itself with a prime location, taking advantage of rapid connectivity to Bangkok via the Bang Na-Chon Buri Expressway, making it ideal for both permanent residents and holidaymakers. The upcoming high-speed rail link, set to slash travel time to less than an hour, adds to the allure.

At The Prospect, modern luxury meets resort-style living with its collection of private pool villas. The development features two customisable home designs-Amber and Onyx.

The Amber villas offer 341-351 square metres of living space, including three bedrooms and four bathrooms, while the Onyx villas, more spacious at up to 415 square metres come with four bedrooms.

The community-focused amenities, including round-the-clock security, advanced surveillance, and exclusive recreational spaces like the Skyline Pavilion, enhance the living experience. For this, The Prospect has been recognised for its architectural excellence, clinching the Best Ultra Luxury Housing Architectural Design (Eastern Seaboard) at the Thailand Property Awards 2023.
