A little piece of heaven

Phuket has long been a popular tourist destination. It offers a pool of exciting activities like rock-climbing, island-hopping and snorkelling in the Andaman Sea.

And for foreign investors who want to invest in a property there, Jones Lang LaSalle had begun taking bookings on yooPhuket. Managed by the international branding, design and investment property company Yoo, it is the first in a series of anticipated Yoo projects in 2010. Located on Phuket’s beautiful lakeside, it offers 256 elegantly designed apartments and penthouses with breathtaking panoramic views.

Raising the bar for luxury living, the lavish residential development is designed by top- class interior designers. Each unit offers a state-of-the-art living area, bedrooms and kitchens, as well as a charming balcony for tenants to dine al fresco in a private setting. Moreover, it provides superior amenities that include infinity pools and poolside cabanas, outdoor fireplaces, yoga and wellbeing spa services.

Due to strong demand, property prices are expected to rise as Phuket is becoming one of Asia’s most sought-after investment destinations. According to Atchaka Sibunruang, the secretary general of the Board of Investment, the unexpected surge in potential investment value last year is considered a reassurance that Thailand remains an interesting investment destination in the eyes of foreign investors.

The fractional ownership of a studio apartment at yooPhuket starts from US$70,000, including complimentary use of powerboat and the lastest Callaway golf equipment, Two-bedroom units start from US$195,750, while penthouse units start from US$462,750. Each unit comes with exclusively designed yooPhuket furniture.
