Rawai, a quiet residential area located at the very southern tip of the island is a most-sought after beach for people who love to get away from the madness of the highly commercialized parts of Patong, Kata or Karon. However until the last couple of years the area was not seen as a major player in the property market of the island. But that was in the past! Today Rawai offers some good options for people to own a property here, with its laid-back atmosphere attracting many expats. Everything things are still locally priced and has all the facilities you need such as the evening markets for fresh produce, cheap local eating places, a selection of high quality Western restaurants, international nurseries and kindergartens, general stores, banks and gyms.
When it comes to buying a property in Rawai real estate players opine that this is perhaps one of best places in the island if you are looking to get good capital returns on your investments in the next couple of years. The reasons they say being Rawai’s proximity to the main beaches and places of attractions. So if you are looking to leave the frenzy of the prime areas of the island and look elsewhere, there are still gems to be explored. And one such gem is the area of Rawai.
As an introduction to the area, we are today featuring a development comprising nine luxury private villas with three and four bedrooms located 150 meters from the beach. The development – Aqua Villas – launched just last month will feature custom built four-storey tropical villas, ideal as holiday homes or permanent residences. The villas will be designed to give its residents a unique tropical living experience amidst natural seafront surroundings.
Each of the villas will come with a private roof terrace featuring a unique glass bottom 12-meter infinity-edge swimming pool with views across the Andaman Sea and will be the centerpiece of each villa. The spacious open plan living and dining area on the second floor will open out to a wrap-around terrace. The entire third floor will be dedicated to the master bedroom and the two bedrooms on the ground floor will be en suite. The larger bedroom on the ground floor will come with a private garden and terrace.
As for the exteriors, stonework, glass and rich-tone Asiatic hardwood will complete the Aqua Villas. Meanwhile once complete, the villas will come with the option of a modern-oriental style furniture package, put together by interior designers to provide luxurious comfort throughout the villas. The kitchen will be equipped with modern stove and burner, oven and hood, microwave and refrigerator.
The Rawai area where the Aqua Villas are being constructed is easily accessible to the parts of the island with major roads leading to town and right up to the airport in the north. Phuket Town, Central Festival and Tesco are just a 20 minutes’ drive away. A scenic coastal road takes you directly to the tourist areas of Kata and Karon beach and further north to Patong’s nightlife, bars and restaurants.
Three and four bedroom villas of 426 square meters. A couple of villas will have larger gardens.
The developer will charge a 15,000 baht (USD 482.393) per month common area fee (payable one year in advance) which will covers the development’s 24-hour security, garbage collection, street lighting and maintenance of the common areas.
