Avadina Hills by Anantara had also won the Best Luxury Housing Development (Phuket) and Best Housing Development (Thailand) awards at the 14th PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, the Kingdom’s longest-running and most respected real estate awards programme held in Bangkok.
Micah Tamthai, vice president of real estate at Minor International, said, “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 profiles.”
“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,” he added.
Layan Residences by Anantara, a 20-minute drive from Phuket’s international airport, hosts a boutique collection of 15 private pool villas ranging from 1,695 to 3,195 square metres in a built-up area. Each villa features unique panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and has been exclusively designed in contemporary Thai style.
Neighbouring the Residences is Avadina Hills by Anantara, offering 11 ultra-luxury residences ranging from 2,452 to 3,373 square metres, including one or two expansion floors, fully customisable by guests to suit their lifestyle. The elegant and minimal development design is inspired by the Japanese heritage of co-developer Kajima, a construction and real estate development company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
Among the recently sold freehold villas is a seven-bedroom residence with a private spa, gym, and home cinema, a five-bedroom residence with two levels of outdoor entertaining space, as well as a residence with four master suites, each with a private terrace and sweeping ocean views.

Phuket, flourishing with wellness culture, leisure activities, and international-standard healthcare, is the perfect lifestyle destination. The island was recently ranked by the Mastercard Global Destination Cities Index as one of the 20 most popular tropical beach destinations with international visitors in 2019.
“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 Micah Tamthai.
