Both triplex ‘Aquaminium’ penthouses, with private yacht berths incorporated into the design of the condominium, sold for more than US$2
million at the Royal Phuket Marina sales exhibition held at the Four Seasons
Hotel in Hong Kong last weekend.
The triplex penthouses, which are the most desirable units in the world’s first Aquaminium, were bought by two European bankers. The
successful sales event saw a further six reservations made for properties at the marina.
"The fact that we sold the most highly priced units in the Aquaminium so quickly demonstrates the desirability of this completely unique
product,” said Mr. Gulu Lalvani, owner and developer of the marina. “Investors are clearly looking at the success of our Phase 1 development
where re-sales are producing capital appreciations of up to one hundred per
David Simister, Chairman, CB Richard Ellis Thailand and sales agent for the Hong Kong launch
added, “Phuket real estate has, for virtually
all buyers, been one of their most successful investments ever. This fact coupled with a lifestyle to rival any worldwide resort has promoted
continued interest and Royal Phuket Marina offers something completely unique in a highly desirable part of the world.”
Thailand’s ‘paradise island’ of Phuket earned the accolade of ‘Asia’s Maritime Capital’ at the annual Christofle Asia Boating Awards held in
Bangkok in April, putting Phuket firmly on the map of international yachting.
Royal Phuket Marina’s Aquaminium is a pioneering concept and
one of the world’s first condominiums to feature private boat-berths within the residence
itself. The property comprises three buildings and offers investors varying unit types including triplex and duplex penthouses, and two and three
bedroom condominiums, and offers one of the world’s most unique investment opportunities.
The eight Royal Villas, the most prestigious homes available at Royal Phuket Marina, open onto sweeping views of the Mediterranean-style
marina with its profusion of luxury yachts and boardwalks.
These grand residences which have been designed in classic Thai style, blend seamlessly with the resort-inspired surroundings of the marina.
Expansive outdoor terraces come with a private swimming pool with built-in Jacuzzi at one end and at the other, a traditional Thai-style sala
which overlooks a private boat berth.
Royal Phuket Marina is located on Phuket’s up-and-coming eastern seaboard overlooking scenic Phang Nga Bay.
The entire US$150 million Royal Phuket Marina project is due for completion in 2010.
