Boon is the eldest son of property entrepreneur Kanit Yongsakul who has earned his warranted reputation for developing Boat Lagoon, one of the most highly regarded marinas in Asia. Boon is an alchemist and seemingly turns everything he touches into gold. He was born and raised in Phuket, and first and foremost, he wants his birthplace to always “be a better place to live”. He is known for his compassion and kindness and also for his drive to become the leading boutique developer in southern Thailand. His Boat Pattana business partnership with Khun Panupong was forged over a decade ago was based on their mutual passion for providing beautiful, yet affordable homes.
The new development is a calm oasis that allows its residents to feel cocooned and nurtured, yet it lies just steps away from a street that hums with activity. The modern interiors effortlessly connect to the tropical gardens and nature, affording the idealist living that Phuket has to offer in a tropical climate. The international and domestic airports are only 20-minutes away, making access in and out of the island efficient and easy.
Phuket, the pearl of the Andaman
The western coast of Thailand’s largest island boasts a myriad of exciting adventures. Long walks on the local pristine beaches of Layan, Surin or Bang Tao, excursions to connect with sea-gypsies living in floating villages, exploring rainforests with gentle giants at ethical elephant sanctuaries; and wandering through narrow streets discovering historic Sino-Portuguese hubs of art, food, and markets. Phuket has a mysterious sense of tradition and a long history of Chinese settlers from the times of tin mining.
The Shambhala development is a collection of smart, contemporary, and architecturally attention-grabbing villas. Each villa is bursting with bright, sunshine-filled spaces; the open plan dining and living area merge seamlessly into the outdoor pool and lounge space, making it ideal for relaxing during the day and entertaining in the evenings as the ever-changing skies turn to stars.
The large and eye-catching accommodation surrounds the feature swimming pool and offers two or three master bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom facilities. The properties are perfect for residential or investment purposes. Elegant furnishings, fittings, and electrical appliances mean that each home is ready to let upon completion. The plot sizes vary and are from 260 sqm to 600 sqm and offer ample space and plenty of privacy.
Smart purchasing options mean that Thai buyers can purchase a villa on a freehold basis, while international buyers can acquire a unit on a leasehold basis, which guarantees rights for up to an impressive 90 years.
