Luxury island living at its finest

In recent years, Thailand’s luxury resort residential market has continued to adapt to the evolving demands of affluent investors.

Post-pandemic, there has been a marked increase in the desire for high-end resort residences that offer not just a place to stay, but a unrivalled lifestyle experience.

This trend is particularly evident in sought-after destinations like Phuket, where the blend of natural beauty and luxury amenities continues to attract discerning investors and homeowners.

Indeed, there is a growing emphasis on properties that provide an amalgamation of privacy, exclusive services, and top-tier amenities. Developments are increasingly incorporating elements of wellness, sustainability, and smart technology, catering to a clientele that values both luxury and holistic living.

These trends reflect a broader shift in the luxury real estate market, where buyers are seeking properties that offer more than just opulence-they’re looking for a comprehensive lifestyle and wellness package.

Here are some of the latest luxury launches to grace Thailand’s world-famous resort destinations. Each property epitomises the pinnacle of luxury living, with state-of-the-art features, bespoke services, and breathtaking natural surroundings.

1. The Residence Prime by Andaman Asset Solution

Nestled in the scenic Thep Krasattri area of Phuket, The Residence Prime blends state-of-the-art features with the serene backdrop of Phuket’s natural beauty.

Each of the 28 units in this exclusive development offers approximately 350 square metres of modern luxury. The three-bedroom villas, designed with a focus on comfort and convenience, boast private swimming pools and multi-entry access, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience.

Residents can enjoy their private oasis while just a stone’s throw away from the vibrant Laguna neighbourhood.

Key to The Residence Prime’s allure is its commitment to smart living. From voice recognition-enabled smart home systems to innovative lighting and security solutions, the development promises a life of effortless luxury. These features are not just about convenience; they also represent a forward-thinking approach to residential design.

Furthermore, the development’s recognition as Best Smart Home Development and the accolade of Best Boutique Developer (Phuket) for Andaman Asset Solution underscores its unique position in the market.

2. Botanica Grand Avenue by Botanica Luxury Phuket Co., Ltd

Positioned in Phuket’s prestigious Laguna area, Botanica Grand Avenue’s prime location offers residents easy access to the stunning Layan Beach and Bang Tao Beach.

The area is well-equipped with a wide array of amenities including top-notch restaurants, markets, and leisure facilities, such as the Laguna Golf Course. Its strategic location offers residents a laidback lifestyle only moments from the island’s vibrant social and cultural scenes.

Crowned as the Best Ultra Luxury Housing Development (Phuket) at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2023, showcases 51 exclusive residences, each spread over a generous land plot ranging from 852 to 2,036 square metres. These luxurious homes offer a choice between modern luxury and tropical Balinese designs, ensuring a perfect blend of contemporary finesse and traditional elegance.

The villas, varying in design from four to five bedrooms, are crafted with attention to detail, incorporating private pools, air conditioning, built-in wardrobes and fully-equipped kitchens.

Botanica Luxury Phuket’s latest project not only offers a premium home in a tropical paradise but also represents a smart investment in one of Phuket’s most sought-after locations.

Further emphasising the developer’s reputation as one of the leading names in the island’s real estate markets was its recognition as Best Luxury Developer (Phuket) last year.

3. Longone Villas by YLP Yadalong Property

With a focus on quality and design, Longone Villas stands out as a prime example of luxury island living, offering a blend of contemporary architecture, privacy, and connectivity to the beauty of Phuket.

Recognised for its Best Lifestyle Housing Development (Phuket) and Best Housing Architectural Design (Phuket) at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2023, the development comprises 10 private-pool residences, each designed with an uber-modern rectangular architecture and warm interior finishes.

The residences feature sliding glass doors and oversized windows welcoming an abundance of natural light while ensuring privacy and shade through strategic overhangs and balconies. Each room, meanwhile, boasts views of the private pool.

The villas, available in sizes ranging from 304 to 326 square metres, come equipped with three to four bedrooms and bathrooms. They also include a private garden and terrace, catering to a lifestyle that appreciates both indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Located just minutes away from Chalong Bay, Longone Villas also provides easy access to some of the island’s best amenities, restaurants and entertainment options.

4. Villa AELA by Villa d’Architecte Co., LTD

These luxurious villas are designed with an emphasis on space, privacy, and integration with nature, ensuring a tranquil yet opulent lifestyle. Each unit features wooden finishes, tactile furnishings, and neutral palettes that create an inviting atmosphere.

The uniqueness of Villa AELA, which won Best Housing Interior Design (Phuket) at last year’s PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, is further accentuated by its expansive outdoor spaces. These include a chillout rooftop and sunken poolside lounge, perfect for relaxation or entertaining.

The project’s prime location offers convenient access to international schools, commercial centres, and popular seafood restaurants, all within a short drive, while added luxuries like a home theatre and a glass-ceilinged wine cellar visible from the entrance elevate the living experience.

Meanwhile, passive design strategies such as natural light, ventilation, and the use of sustainable materials enhance the aesthetic appeal of the residences while also promoting energy efficiency.

5. Pavara Khiri Collection by Pavara Development Co., Ltd

The unique charm of Pavara Khiri Collection is its perfect balance of lush greenery and convenient access to Phuket’s vibrant attractions, including beaches, restaurants, sports complexes, and lifestyle malls.

Nestled in Choeng Thale, Pavara Khiri Collection comprises 16 exclusive luxury pool villas. Each of the villas, available in three- and six-bedroom interactions, is strategically situated within spacious land plots, providing residents with an idyllic mix of privacy and scenic views.

The design philosophy at the award-winning development, celebrated for the Best Housing Landscape Design (Phuket) at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2023, centres around timeless design, tropical culture, simple elegance and exceptional functionality.

Moreover, the units, characterised by their spaciousness, are designed to artfully blend Thai fabrics with modern aesthetics. They prioritise cross ventilation and lush landscaping to enhance the tropical living experience.

6. Rawayana by Phuket9

This impressive mixed-use project in one of Phuket’s most desirable addresses boasts a unique mix of residential, retail, and hospitality elements with a design that reflects its absolute beachfront location. With low-rise buildings that nestle within treelines, the design creates a fluid transition between the development and its natural surroundings.

The use of natural materials such as wooden flooring and large windows enhances this concept, allowing ample light to permeate the living spaces.

Moreover, the project’s unique approach to integrating the coastal environment into its landscape design is particularly striking. Rooftop swimming pools cover the condo buildings, while villa roofs and vertical gardens near the beach are lush with greenery.

This design approach ensures that the natural beauty of the beachfront is reflected throughout the development, creating an immersive living experience.

These design elements, coupled with the project’s comprehensive approach, have garnered significant recognition.

Rawayana was awarded at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2023 for Best Boutique Mixed Use Development, Best Commercial Landscape Design, and Best Boutique Mixed Use Architectural Design in Phuket. Additionally, the developer, Phuket9 Co., Ltd., was honoured as the Best Developer in Phuket.
