Plans were recently unveiled for a new upscale resort on Koh Samui. Hillcrest Residences (Samui) will be building a new, ultra-exclusive Conrad Koh Samui Residences on the island to take advantage of a growing trend in high-end luxury holiday homes.
The new resort will be located on a hill with views looking out over Phang Ka Beach on the southwestern coast of the island. The company will be building 32 pool villas in the middle of a coconut plantation.
The villas should be ready for business in 2009, making the Conrad Koh Samui Residences one of the first brand name luxury properties for sale in the area.
Lyon Lau, the managing director for Hillcrest Residences said: “Hillcrest is delighted to announce the launch of Conrad Koh Samui Residences. This new development introduces to Koh Samui the whole notion of branded residence concept offering truly luxurious and memorable getaways for today’s discerning and market savvy home buyers.”
Each villa will have either two or three bedrooms and a beautiful view out over the Gulf of Thailand. In addition, the property comes with at least 300 square meters of outdoor space, a private pool and a large outdoor sun deck.
The Residences will offer residents access to restaurants and recreational facilities including a spa offering both international treatments and local practitioners.
Koh Samui was once a quiet backpackers haven but is growing into a regional hot spot. With a new terminal recently opened at the Koh Samui airport and more international flights expected in the future, the region is a perfect place to invest. Last year 1.1 million visitors enjoyed the sand and sun on Koh Samui.
