MOVENPICK RESIDENCES & POOL VILLAS
By Kevin Cain
Movenpick Residences & Pool Villas is the new five star beachfront development and living experience in Na Jomtien. Situated on the beautiful White Sand Beach and ideally located on Sukhumvit Road it is the luxury new kid on the block.
As the name suggests the development encompasses three distinctly different lifestyle choices:
The Movenpick Siam Hotel, Movenpick Residences and Movenpick Pool Villas. The whole development costing a staggering 4.2 million baht and is spread out over an expansive 30 Rai site. The hotel and the residences are located in twin towers that are designed to look like a sailboat. This nautical theme runs throughout the design of the entire complex both internally and externally.
The Movenpick Siam Hotel is located in the North Tower and is 34 stories high with 264 guest suites. This hotel offers the best in 5 star luxury and includes all the facilities you would associate with the brand.The Residences occupy the taller tower which is a staggering 37 stories high and houses 196 units including three penthouse suites. There are different configurations from 47sqm right up to an expansive 143sqm two bedroom luxury units.
All owners of units in the North Tower have full access to the hotel's facilities, although as part of the Residences package there is a games room, snooker room, gym, steam room, children's play room and an expansive lobby. All residents and Villa owners have access to the expansive swimming pool, designed as a Romantic Adventure which covers a vast 4 Rai of land.
The development is now amazingly 80% sold with great interest being shown on the last remaining units. This is quite possibly partly due to the Rental Pool Program offering an exclusive 61 units the option to rent out and a guaranteed thirty night stay annually. 14 Pool Villa owners can also join the plan which offers the buyers 60% of the rental and 40% to the hotel management.
The Pool Villas are an exclusive chance for luxury living with the added advantages of all the Hotel and Residences facilities which include the mammoth pool complex and outdoor tennis courts. Each Villa has its own individual pool and there are two variations to select from.
Type A is a one-storey unit on 520sqm of land. There are three bedrooms and two en suites with plenty of external space to enjoy the pool. The second offering, Type B is a split-level unit and is almost the exact same size as the Type A but the bedrooms are more secluded on a higher tier.
Obviously the price of land is rocketing in this part of Pattaya and the Villas are cashing in on the good fortune. Over the past two years the price of land in Na Jomtien has increased by 20% as the growth in development of the area is also increasing at a very fast pace.
Established in Switzerland since 1973, Movenpick is a 5-star hotel management company which is under Management Contracts to operate 105 hotels in 29 countries.Apex Development PLC were the driving force behind Movenpick Residences & Pool Villas and recently took the first place award in the category of Best Luxury Condo Development (Eastern Seaboard) at the prestigious Thailand Property Awards 2015.The Thailand Property Awards being Thailand's biggest real estate event of the year and this year's competition looked at 200 projects. Developers competed in various categories along with top professionals from the industry, including; architects, interior designers and construction professionals.
Overall the Movenpick Residences and Pool Villas is an outstanding development, it is the only one of its kind on the Eastern Seaboard that offers sea views to every unit. Driving up past the Villas to the impressive and rather daunting twin towers, the complex oozes luxury and class and shows off its five star pedigree.
An added incentive for prospective buyers is the chance to enjoy a very special and luxurious trip with the Lagoon 500 Catamaran when they purchase. Small condo units receive a six hour cruise whilst larger units and Pool Villa's have 8 hours to enjoy on the waves.
Not a run of the mill residence in any respect, this is high end luxury that pampers it's guests and residents alike. For those fortunate enough to have secured a unit then a sound investment has been made, for those readers who are yet to choose then don't wait too long.
