Thai luxury property developer Ideas 1606 Co., Ltd. launched its new luxury residence property project called “Veyla, Natai Residences” serenely situated in Phang Nga province’s Natai Beach, a hidden gem within a 30-minute drive from Phuket International Airport.
A freehold beachfront residential development, Veyla Natai Residences, will comprise 15 luxury seaside villas, each with a breath-taking view of Natai Beach and the Andaman Sea. The project, aiming to cater to both foreign and local buyers at the top end of the market in response to growing demand for luxury vacation homes in Thailand’s southern resorts, is planned to begin in the third quarter this year and scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.
A 30-minute drive from Phuket International Airport, Veyla Natai Residences is beautifully and peacefully nestled on a 5.8-rai plot of land in Natai Beach in Phang Nga’s Takua Thung district amid a mangrove forest, a tropical rainforest, a pristine beach and the Andaman Sea.
Billed as a haven of peace and serenity, the Bt1.2 billion luxury beachfront villa project is designed to provide plenty of privacy from the usual bustle of its nearby resort town thanks to its unique, idyllic location and ease of access.
Offering a wide, inviting Natai beach frontage, the project comprises 15 units: seven units of the 615-sqm, 2-storey beachfront Veyla Beach villa and eight units of the 585-sqm, 3-storey seaview Veyla Sea villa. “Veyla” is Sanskrit for a house by the beach. Both types of villas have three bedrooms. Prices start at Bt67 million per unit. This should address the needs of executives/entreprenuers looking for a luxury refuge at a manageable size and budget.
Residents of Veyla Natai Residences can enjoy recreational facilities at Veyla Sand, the common area featuring a 25-metre swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, an outdoor cinema, a lounge, a sun deck, a moon deck, an exercise room, a chef’s table dining area, a DJ station, and Hidden Bar, to name just a few.
The project’s design is the handiwork of Architects 49 House Design Limited, while Sanitas Studio takes charge of landscape design in a monochromatic colour scheme aiming to mute all distractions and integrate seamlessly with the sandy Natai beach.
Inspired by Takua Thung’s time-worn textile and basketry heritage, the project’s design – under the theme of "Craft Your Digital Life" – embraces minimalist styling out of deference to the locale’s peaceful, natural scenery. The result is a harmonious blend of modern and traditional and indoor and outdoor living that pays tribute to the district’s weaving heritage while also symbolising digital lifestyle trends.
The villas’ furniture shows unswerving loyalty to Phang Nga’s traditional arts and crafts, while the shiny materials – soft gold or bronze – denote a digital lifestyle. Taking its cue from the golden sands of Natai Beach, the villas’ monochromatic visual palette of greyish yellow both inside and outside is designed to induce relaxation.
The décor has a cool “Phangha-themed” sophistication with carefully curated art installations, including mirror installations that play with the soothing scenery of the outside world and bring in natural elements of sunlight, moonlight and the stars to be visible and appreciated in the interior.
The villas’ environmental control and communication systems – from air conditioning and ventilation to humidity control and lighting – make use of the latest automation technology to allow owners to operate their villas with their fingertips.
Ideas 1606 Company Limited, led by chief executive Prapavadee Sophonpanich, was founded in 2008, as a property development firm that specialises in low-density, high-end residential developments.
“The company has created the Veyla brand to represent our real estate endeavours that induce relaxation and a desire to reconnect with oneself. ‘Veyla’ means ‘time’ in Thai and ‘a house by the beach’ in Sanskrit.”
“The company’s goal is to bring together tasteful design and quality construction to bear on premium residential developments that are blessed with serenity and a beautiful natural landscape and set in beautiful locations that are close enough to modern conveniences,” said founder and CEO Prapavadee Sophonpanich.
Aliwassa Pathnadabutr, Managing Director of CBRE (Thailand) Co., Ltd., remarked that, “A survey of Phuket’s property market over the last few years shows that there are not many high-end villa projects on the market currently. This is due to difficulties finding seaside land and the subsequent astronomical cost of this kind of location. Specifically, 3-bedroom villas fill the current market gap while offering attractive pricing. The criteria considered in purchasing high-end vacation homes include the project’s seaside location, high levels of privacy, ease of access, proximity to an airport and modern amenities, reasonable pricing, a high rate of return in the long term, design, quality of construction, and credibility of the property developer. Veyla Natai Residences satisfies the needs of customers on many levels through its premium Natai beach location, which has high growth potential and is part of the expanding western coast featuring a beautiful, largely pristine beach. Additionally, buyers will receive high quality maintenance and rental management services that will maximise their relaxation and fulfil their lifestyle needs.”
The company’s growing portfolio includes successful, sold-out projects such as Veyla Khao Tao Residences (2009) which received Thailand Property Awards for Best Condominium in Hua Hin and Veyla Cha-Am Residences (2015) which received Best Residential Project.
Veyla Natai Residences is the perfect place to indulge in soaking up the calm amid pristine natural scenery that creates sheer privacy, as befitting a sophisticated lifestyle. Prices for the luxury beachfront villas situated at Phang Nga’s Na Tai Beach start at Bt67 million per unit. Meanwhile, maintenance and villa rental will be managed by the leading luxury villa rental, Elite Havens.
Sample villas will be available for private viewings from July onwards.
