AZUR SAMUI Living the dream.

The appeal of Azur Samui is as immense as the views it commands. From up on high, the panorama is an amazing one. An entire plain of palm trees leads the eye down towards the coast and a turquoise sea that stretches to the horizon, taking in Koh Phangan and Koh Tao on the way. First time visitors tend to stand in silence, just drinking in all that beauty, while residents get to enjoy the same view every day – all properties here look out onto it.

          

Azur is set amongst the forested northern slopes just a few minutes’ drive south of Maenam, famed for its beautiful bay. Once you’re at the development, it feels wonderfully secluded; it’s easy to imagine an intimate way of life up here. Yet, for all that, it’s exceptionally easy to get to all the main shops, facilities, restaurants and nightlife extraordinarily quickly. You can get from the front door of your property to the airport or Chaweng in about 20 minutes. And this may sound bizarre to note, but getting back is just as easy: the approach road to Azur is easy and gentle to drive – though it’s set in the hills, there are no jaw-dropping steep slopes to negotiate.

          

More and more people are moving eastwards, away from Europe and the West. Some come for economic ease, others for the cheerier climate and still others because they simply want to be closer to all the action – with this side of the Pacific Rim emerging in fits and bounds as part of a larger Asian powerhouse, Thailand is seen as a stable area. And where more pleasant to live than Samui? Azur caters for a complete spectrum of buyers. First there are those who simply want to make an economic investment; for them ownership of a property offering rental returns is the name of the game. Then there are those who wish to move to Samui fulltime, and who dream of a long-term property as a home. Then there are people who intend to come to Samui for some months in the year and live elsewhere for the rest of the time. Azur offers all of these different buyers a wonderful home in a wonderful setting.

          

Azur Samui was conceived by an experienced developer, Tim Dean- Smith, who fell in love with the land here and realized it would be a wonderful setting. Already well-known for conceiving and developing Beach Republic, a unique and stand-out beach club further south in Lamai, Tim has been on the island for well over a decade, and is in a good position to know what investors and buyers are looking for.AZUR SAMUI Living the dream.

          

The properties themselves are built to the highest standards. The exacting attention to detail of the management is clearly visible in the exceptional quality and finish of all the properties at Azur Samui, with many materials being brought in from as far afield as Australia and Europe.

          

Apartments sell from 8.455 million baht, unfurnished, but with the option to completely furnish if so desired. Meanwhile, villas start at 29.5 million baht. Villas can also be purchased furnished to the highest standards, as most buyers favour the turn-key approach that Azur offers. Buyers can, if they wish, specify the internal layouts of their new off-plan villas, and the management will work hand in hand with them to provide exactly what it is that a new owner is looking for in their dream home.

          

At the time of writing there are just six apartments left, including penthouse suites and 15 villas. Simple and straightforward is the best formula when it comes to ownership of housing. Who wants a complicated situation – especially if you’re far from your home country? The approach taken by the management behind Azur Samui is all about freeing you up to enjoy living abroad while taking away all the worrying, complicated mechanics behind home ownership. Contracts are in plain English, and up to 60% developer finance is available, along with individually tailored repayment plans.

          

Whatever the reason for individual buyers to purchase at Azur, they know that their money isn’t just buying them a fantastic plot of land and building - Azur is a community too. A beautiful clubhouse, which is slated to be complete by Christmas this year, will form a focal point with an infinity pool, already built,AZUR SAMUI Living the dream. that looks out over the dreamy vista making it an excellent place to linger. Sun loungers and parasols complete the relaxed vibe, and naturally there’ll be a bar too, just the right place to have a drink and watch the sun go down. For those keeping fit, there’s a spacious gym filled with a full range of equipment from the well-known brand, Life Fitness. A yoga and Pilates room is right next door, making Azur an ideal sports venue – motivation is right on hand to get fit/keep fit. There will also be a steam room, two massage rooms and changing rooms when all the clubhouse facilities are complete.

          

When owners are away from Azur, they need have no worries about security – no matter if they’ve gone out for a few hours or a year. Azur is well-covered with CCTV cameras. There’s a single access road with a guarded checkpoint and patrols from dusk until dawn. In addition to all of this, there’ll soon be a professional reception area at Azur, and staff will always be on hand to help residents.

          

If you’d like to experience life overlooking the dreamy Gulf of Siam in an idyllic location, Azur Samui should be right on top of your list of places to check out. With so much on offer and a friendly team to help you make your dreams come true, finding your ideal lifestyle has suddenly become a lot easier.
