Minor International achieves record-breaking THB 2.5 billion in real estate sales

Bangkok, 4th March 2021 – Minor International (MINT), one of the largest hospitality, restaurant and lifestyle companies in Asia Pacific, achieved a record-breaking THB 2.5 billion in eight separate residential villa sales in Phuket in the preceding 12 months.

Nestled on a lush hillside above Layan Beach on Phuket’s north-western coast, Minor International’s resort-branded residences – Layan Residences by Anantara and Avadina Hills by Anantara – benefit from world-class management, facilities and services provided 24/7 by the five-star Anantara Layan Phuket Resort.

“Good infrastructure, beautiful weather, and a vibrant culture place Thailand among the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia for second homes, and for those who are looking to invest, Phuket hosts some of the Kingdom’s most attractive residential portfolios,” said Mr. Micah Tamthai, Vice President of Real Estate, Minor International. “Our recent sales achievement is also a testament of the increasing preference, especially among a growing population of high-end customers, towards resort-branded residences that offer an exceptional luxury product and a seamless, hassle-free home-ownership experience.”



Among the developments’ recently sold freehold villas is a seven-bedroom residence which comes complete with a private spa, gym and home cinema, a five-bedroom residence with two levels of outdoor entertaining space, and a residence with four master suites, each with a private terrace and sweeping ocean views.

Five-star amenities at the adjacent Anantara Layan Phuket Resort include a private beach and beach club, Thai and international fine dining, award-winning Anantara Spa, kids’ club, helipad and boat tender drop-off point, as well as a full suite of wellness facilities comprising swimming pools, a fitness centre, tennis court and Muay Thai boxing ring. Owners and residents also benefit from the resort’s in-residence services – including private butler, buggy and chef services – and the option to participate in a flexible resort-managed rental program.

Located only 20 minutes from Phuket’s international airport, Layan Residences by Anantara is a boutique collection of 15 private pool villas ranging from 1,695 to 3,195 square metres in built-up area. Each has been uniquely designed in contemporary Thai style and features one-of-a-kind panoramic views of the Andaman Sea.

Next door on 100 rai (40 acres) of land, Avadina Hills by Anantara offers 11 ultra-luxury residences ranging in size from 2,452 to 3,373 square metres. Elegantly minimalist, the design draws inspiration from the Japanese heritage of co-developer Kajima, a construction and real estate development company listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. All villas feature one or two expansion floors for additional guest suites and bespoke wellness or entertainment spaces, fully customisable to suit each owner’s lifestyle.

Phuket continues to be a popular destination for second homes and property investment

“As Thailand’s resilient tourism industry begins its recovery, augmented by a strong history of land and villa capital appreciation in Phuket, we remain confident of the island’s property market outlook in 2021 and beyond,” concluded Mr. Tamthai.

The residences are available for private ownership at a starting price of THB 225 million for Layan Residences by Anantara and THB 292 million for Avadina Hills by Anantara, with freehold title for eligible buyers.
