Launch of Samujana Phase 2 in Koh Samui by Sole Hong Kong Real Estate Agency
HONG KONG – Engel & Völkers Hong Kong announced the launch of Phase 2 of Samujana, a new, luxurious award-winning project in northeast Koh Samui, Thailand’s second largest island, at an exclusive event last evening.
Held at The Space, 210 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, more than 50 VIP guests of Engel & Völkers showed great interest in the property as an investment and second home opportunity.
“Samui has long been one of the top destinations in Southeast Asia for vacation homes for both expatriates based in the region and locals,” says Engel & Völkers Sales and Leasing Agent Sarah Fleischer. “The last few years have seen major names such as Four Seasons, W and Banyan Tree all release residential villas for sale. Samujana is part of this new move toward very top end real estate on the island, and, in many ways, is defining the market. Being situated in the prime location of the northeast coast close to the airport and Chaweng (main tourist area) with amazing views but quiet solitude, the project is drawing plaudits from far and wide, not least from the Bloomberg Award received earlier this year.
“With two-thirds of the development completed and occupied, and Phase 2 underway, this stunning development is reaching maturity. Drawing buyers from far and wide to its own private beach, private catamaran, and 5-star level amenities, the project is really becoming a stand-out property in Samui. With only 8 villas remaining out of the 30 villa project, now really is the time to buy,” Fleischer advises.
Phase 2 of the project, designed by award-winning Bali – based British architect Gary Fell of GFAB Architects and built by local Samui builders International Project Services (IPS) and PJC Wood, is more luxurious and higher on the hillside, allowing northern and western panoramas unavailable to those in the first phase, in addition to the famous southern views of the emerald sea, islands and beaches.
Thailand has been expanding and improving the infrastructure on the island and currently plans to build a state-run airport that would end the monopoly on airport service on the island. This will make the island more accessible and a strategic place to invest in property for the long term.
