Thereâs something truly magical about Phuket, a quality of sorts that has led to its undisputed crowning as the âPearl of the Andamanâ. As one of South East Asiaâs premier yachting destinations, the island offers a nautical experience like no other, filled with dramatic limestone caves, pristine white-sand beaches and a vibrant marine life that will no doubt be a sailorâs delight.
For the ocean-lover who naturally, relishes living by the sea, Phuket is the place to be and the Emerald Development Group gives you the best seats in the house with The Jade Villa @ Emerald Nirvana, a collection of eight private pool villas boasting unparalleled ocean vistas.
Nestled amidst a verdant hillside facing the Andaman Sea, these unique and exclusive villas are set on the grounds of a luxury development comprising residential apartments, a five star hotel with an array of amenities as well as a private beach club. Ranging from 245 sqm to 350 sqm (approx. 2,637 sq. ft. to 3,767 sq. ft.), each villa spans three floors and features a stylish character accentuated by neutral tones, sleek expanses of white and light wood finishes perfectly in tune with nature and island living.
With four bedrooms and four bathrooms per villa, the spacious home is perfectly suited for family enjoyment and even entertaining. Welcome the ocean breeze as well as plenty of natural light as most of the homeâs living spaces boast floor to ceiling windows and balconies providing stretching views of the aquamarine waters.
For desired days spent languishing sea-side, Kalim beach awaits just steps away, a quiet sanctuary offering various eateries and street food, as well as snorkelling opportunities offshore with some vibrant coral to explore. Patong beach, an area certainly more popular with the crowds, is also mere minutes away. Alternatively, if venturing out is not on the agenda, a swim in your very own private infinity pool or a lounge on the spacious deck gives an equally relaxing experience, complemented by Phuketâs romantic sunrises and gorgeous sunsets.
Beaches aside, Emeraldâs villas are also located in close proximity to Patong, a year-round playground for those seeking its eccentric nightlife, bold entertainment attractions and shopping and dining options. The world-class Jungceylon Shopping Centre is just five minutes away from the villas and houses more than 200 stores catered to oneâs every whim and fancy. Schools and medical facilities are also within the vicinity, with the airport reachable in under 30 minutes.
With an expected completion date for the first quarter of 2017, residents will also be privy to a âRental Guarantee & Vacation Home Programmeâ option, operated by a team of experienced villa management professionals and rental providers. With this initiative in place, a yearly investment return of at least 8 per cent is expected, making The Jade Villa an excellent investment choice in one of the most popular destinations in Asia.
