Siam Royal View Awarded Best Villa Development (Eastern Seaboard) at the Thailand Property Awards
The Award Ceremony of the Thailand Property Awards is considered to be the most important annual event of the Thai Property Industry. This year it was held on October 13 at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok, gathering Thailand’s leading real estate developers, architects, designers and realtors.
The event, established in 2006 and sponsored by Ensign Media’s Property Report Asia, is considered the ‘Oscars’ of the industry.
Around 500 industry players attended the gala at the Dusit Thani and with 36 awards presented, including a few new categories, making for an exciting evening of achievements and celebrations.
The keynote speech at the awards ceremony was held by Mr Korn Chatikavanij, highly respected former Minister of Finance, emphasizing the importance of the Property Sector to the Thai Economy.
The awards for the Eastern Seaboard, spanning from Chonburi down to Trat province, were particularly enthralling. The recent boom in luxury property development in Pattaya and across the region meant that the regional awards for the Eastern Seaboard were hotly contested.
The final stage of the competition was a visit from an international panel of distinguished judges who visited all finalists to carry out a comprehensive inspection. In spite of the travel involved, the judges made their way down to Koh Chang and obviously were more than pleased by what they saw. The weather did not exactly help, since the day of the judges’ visit was rainy which is never the best conditions for visiting and judging a beach villa development!
In the end however, the rain did not matter a jot and despite the nerves and anticipation on the Awards’ night, Siam Royal View was announced the clear winner of the Best Villa Development (Eastern Seaboard), and in addition also won a “Highly Commended” Award for its boutique condo development, also on Koh Chang.
