Set on the majestic Andaman Sea coastline, the exclusive beach, golf course, and country club is scheduled to open by late-2020
Aquella, a massive mixed-use development project in Phang Nga, Thailand, is scheduled to launch its golf course and country club by late-2020, Dr. Allan Zeman, chairman of Lan Kwai Fong Group, told PropertyGuru Property Report.
For this award-winning project, regional powerhouses, Lan Kwai Fong (LKF) Group and Pacific Century Premium Developments (PCPD), joined forces with local partners, who have collaborated with distinguished design firm Paradise Group and golf design specialists Pacific Coast Designs.
“Our journey in Thailand began with Andara Resort and Villas and the Andara Signature Villas developments. We have been active in Phuket for more than a decade now, and are continuing to see strong, ongoing global demand for well-executed resort residences and memorable vacation experiences,” shared Dr. Zeman.
“The partnership with Pacific Century Premium Developments at Aquella allows us to bring this expertise to the Phang Nga province, a stunning international tourist destination in the Greater Phuket area.”
Encompassing over 1,100 rai of land, the entire complex would be home to an 18-hole, 7,000-yard saltwater-resistant golf course with panoramic views of the Andaman sea and a special seafront tee designed to contend with the renowned No. 7 Hole in Pebble Beach, California.
Aquella is expected to be a gamechanger in the industry, offering a members-only country club, a high-end hotel, a kids club, golf and tennis academies, as well as a vast range of recreational facilities, such as a world-class spa, six tennis courts, petanque courts, nature trails, kayaking, jogging tracks, and much more — all in all surpassing the amenities offered by the best country clubs and golf courses not only in Thailand, but also across the entire Asia Pacific region.
When asked about the location, Dr. Zeman said that he saw great potential in the land, with its unspoilt landscapes of canals and lakes, but most especially because of the 2.5-kilometre pristine beach overlooking the majestic Andaman sea.
Deputy chairman & group managing director of Pacific Century Premium Developments Limited Benjamin Lam added: “With the natural attributes and strategic location of the Aquella site, we are excited to create a year-round luxurious exclusive community that will set a new benchmark for the golf, hospitality, and leisure industries in Southeast Asia.”
Having completed the internal roads and project infrastructure, and with the expected opening of other facilities next year, the developers have started marketing the first phase at Aquella – Aquella Lakeside – a guarded and gated community comprised of 15 two to four-bedroom waterfront villas with private pools, surrounded by a rich landscape, a scenic lake, and a nearby wellness spa sanctuary.
Lending their expertise in interior design is Paradise Group, who meticulously chose high-quality materials and furniture that exude an exquisite blend of timeless elegance. The presentation at the show villa earned the project two accolades at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2019.
Strategically located just 30 minutes from Phuket International Airport and 20 minutes from the proposed Phang Nga International Airport, Aquella is positioned to be the leading destination for families, golfers, and investors who are looking for a breathtaking all-inclusive oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket.
