PHUKET: Located down a quiet soi in Rawai, 150 meters from the beach, Aqua Villas will have nine luxury private villas with three or four bedrooms. The custom built four-storey tropical villas, ideal as holiday homes or permanent residences, will be designed to envelope owners in a totally unique tropical living experience that brings them closer to the natural seafront surroundings.
Each of the villas will come with a private roof terrace featuring a unique glass bottom 12-meter infinity-edge swimming pool; with views across the Andaman Sea, they are the centerpiece of each villa. The poolís glass bottom breathes life into the homes as refracted sunlight gently moves around the rooms beneath it.
The spacious open plan living and dining area on the second floor will open out to a wrap-around terrace. The master bedroom will take up the entire third floor and Ė as with the two bedrooms on the ground floor Ė will be en suite. The larger bedroom on the ground floor will come with a private garden and terrace.
Sensual stonework, glass and rich-tone Asiatic hardwood complete the back-to-nature opulence of Aqua Villas, which when complete, will come with the option of an exclusive two million baht modern-oriental style furniture package, creatively put together by expert interior designers to provide luxurious comfort throughout the villas.
The Western kitchen will be equipped with modern stove and burner, oven and hood, microwave and refrigerator.
A 15,000 baht per month common area fee payable one year in advance covers the developments 24 hour security, garbage collection, street lighting and maintenance of the common areas.
The developerís first project on Phuket was the soldout AW1 Villas on the hillside in Patong. After the completion of the collection of hillside pool villas in 2010, a change of pace and quieter location was sought for Aqua Villas. Close proximity to the beach in Rawai and sea views were the key criteria for the developer and itís these two factors, along with the design and price, that helps Aqua Villas stand out from other pool villas in the area.
Aqua Villas is scheduled to be completed in February 2014 and the nine villas will range in price from 16.9 to 22.9 million baht. All units will be 426 square meters, though some will have larger gardens.
