The groundbreaking developer will revolutionise 20 acres of land with exclusive residences and hotels
Utopia Corporation, renowned for its prestigious and innovative real estate projects in Phuket, has recently revealed its plans to launch a luxury boutique hotel in collaboration with Tonino Lamborghini, the legendary Italian designer label, including preparations to create a new, breath-taking global icon, the “Bay of Icons.”
Overlooking Phang Nga Bay and nestled on Phuket’s phenomenal sunrise coast at Ao Po, the Bay of Icons is anticipated to become Phuket’s most desirable enclave for affluent investors and international travellers alike. Transforming over 20 acres of seafront land encompassing the Ao Po Grand Marina, this paradisal land will be revamped over the next five years under Utopia’s masterplan to develop a lifestyle and leisure destination beyond compare.
Utopia Corporation is known to create amazing developments that have paved the way for excellence in Phuket’s real estate, having won multiple accolades at the 15th PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, including the Best Hotel Managed Residence and Best Senior Living Architectural Design awards.
Once completed, the Bay of Icons will serve as a fashionable community, offering a collection of chic amenities and bespoke services. Affluent investors may choose to invest in premium residences or prestigious pool villas, all designed to first-class specifications. High-end travellers can also enjoy the area by staying in style with a choice of ultra-luxury design hotels.
Utopia Corporation is in the final stages of discussions to collaborate with another high-end fashion branded resort, with announcements due by April 2021. Construction work on the Tonino Lamborghini Boutique Hotel Phuket will begin in November 2021 and the grand opening is scheduled for November 2023. The two legendary brands will, without doubt, elevate the Southeast Asian hospitality industry to a whole new level of excellence and exclusivity.
The Bay of Icons provides a wide range of amenities and activities for residents and hotel guests, from strolling past multi-million-dollar mega-yachts on the waterfront promenades of Ao Po Grand Marina to golfing at the world-class Mission Hills Phuket Golf Course.
The development is also a short drive away from Phuket’s Old Town filled with lively markets and classical Sinno-Portuguese architecture, as well as popular water sports destination, Chalong Bay. On top of such accessibility, VIPs can arrive either by air or sea, with the 300-berth marina and a private helipad, or via Phuket International Airport, a 30-minute drive away.
Hachi Yin, chief executive officer at Utopia Corporation, said, “Phuket is a truly outstanding option for upmarket investors. The island’s exquisite natural beauty, easy accessibility, and international services have attracted a wealth of investment in recent years, including affluent Asian and overseas residents seeking a spectacular second home or a new life in the sun.
“With its collection of global brands, including Southeast Asia’s first Tonino Lamborghini hotel, all set against the backdrop of Phang Nga Bay – the scene of so many Hollywood movies – the Bay of Icons is truly unique. This development is set to become the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Thailand’s tourism industry, a new national landmark and one of the world’s most prestigious waterfront destinations.”
