Property Design: AZUR

Hillside Heaven – Azur Samui
On the North side of Koh Samui, a short drive up Soi 2 in Maenam, nestled amongst the coconut palms sits one of the island’s premier developments, Azur Samui. Built to international standards with resort-style facilities, and enjoying truly breath-taking panoramic ocean views.

It’s no wonder that more than half of the project’s residences have already been purchased.
On the North side of Koh Samui, a short drive up Soi 2 in Maenam, nestled amongst the coconut palms sits one of the island’s premier developments, Azur Samui. Built to international standards with resort-style facilities, and enjoying truly breath-taking panoramic ocean views it’s no wonder that more than half of the project’s residences have already been purchased.
While you get a sense of peaceful calm at this easily accessible hillside development, you are a mere 10-minute drive from the ever popular and charming Fisherman’s Village, and only 20 minutes from the island’s airport and the bustling downtown area of Chaweng, not to mention Maenam’s own beautiful and unspoilt beach being just 5 minutes away.

The inspiration of local property developer and hotelier Tim Dean-Smith, who with the help of an international firm of architects, (who had worked on another of his Samui developments, the ever popular and eminently fashionable Beach Republic in Lamai) set about drawing up an equally spectacular design for a hillside community in this magnificent location.

One only has to look around the show homes to see that the properties here have been built to the highest standards you will find on Samui. The exacting standards and attention to detail of the management are clearly visible in the finish of all the properties at Azur Samui, with many materials being brought in from as far afield as Australia and Europe.

With construction on the 13-unit Coconut Residences complete along with many private pool villas, Azur Samui is close to reaching another important milestone with the completion of the Clubhouse East Wing. Comprised of an 8-unit East Wing and a 6-unit West Wing, the Clubhouse Residences benefit from easy access to all of the facilities available at The Clubhouse. On offer is a 26-metre infinity pool, newly opened gym, a separate yoga and Pilates studio, private massage rooms, herbal steam room and fully-equipped locker rooms.

In addition to easy Clubhouse access, owners at the Clubhouse Residences enjoy under cover parking, internet speeds reaching 500Mbps down and 250Mbps up, in addition to smart lighting. Azur Samui is proud of its low environmental footprint with offerings like solid thermal insulation walls, inverter air conditioning units, energy-saving LED lighting, and heat pump hot water systems all coming as standard.

The ongoing cost of ownership at Azur Samui is transparent and inexpensive. Electricity and water rates are charged at the standard government tariffs, plus a small 10% surcharge which is used to contribute to the cost of running the estate. The owners control all of the common areas, and the levies for upkeep and maintenance are set at actual cost, which the owners also control.

Obtaining financing to purchase a home in Thailand as a foreigner is notoriously difficult – even when approved, loan amounts are nominal and terms are arduous. Azur Samui offers up to 60% vendor-financing, with a custom repayment plan to fit the buyer’s needs, and repayment plans of up to 20 years; and with the option of the rental management program, owners can offset the finance payments (or the purchase price if they are cash buyers) with rental revenue.

With just three residences remaining in Clubhouse West Wing and three in Clubhouse East Wing, the Clubhouse Residences are selling out quickly. The Facebook page Facebook.com/AzurSamui includes plenty of stunning pictures from both the ground and the air and is a great place to start to get a feel for the vision of the architect and developers.
