WHERE IS IT?
Thailand’s biggest island, Phuket, is long established as one of the jewels in the Kingdom’s tourism crown. Famed the world over for its white-sand beaches, fabulous resorts and buzzing nightlife, the destination remains as attractive as ever to those seeking a healthy dose of pure indulgence. Located near the village of Kamala, Andara Phuket enjoys one of the best situations on the paradise island.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
The roots of the project lie in Hong Kong’s happening Lan Kwai Fong district where magnate Allan Zeman built his business empire. After constructing his dream holiday home in Phuket, Zeman saw the potential for the island as a high-end location for a second home. The result was Andara Resort & Villas, which has proved hugely popular with investors since opening in 2008.
Laid out along the start of an elevated stretch of road, known locally as “millionaires’ mile”, the property commands outstanding views of the Andaman Sea and is just a short walk from Kamala’s expansive beach. Its spacious villas and suites are generously appointed with a judicious selection of Thai art and sculpture. Stunning ocean vistas complete an alluring package.
With the azure waters of the Andaman Sea just a stone’s throw away options for water bound fun are limitless. In addition to sailing, diving, snorkelling and paddle boarding, the resort has plenty of on-site diversions including its Silk restaurant as well as the luxury Andara Spa.
Kamala is a diver’s paradise with excellent dive sites just a short boat ride away.
Investors can use their property as a permanent or semi-permanent residence or they can take advantage of a timeshare arrangement whereby the property is placed in a rental program, allowing owners 60-days per year usage of the property.
