Subsidiaries of three of the most prestigious property and hotel investment groups in Asia: The Narai Group (Thailand), Arch Capital (Hong Kong) and Philean Capital (Singapore) part of Pontiac Land Group, have teamed up to create one of Asia’s most exceptional residential resort developments – MontAzure in Kamala, Phuket, Thailand.
The project will span some 178 acres (72 hectares) of mountain to beachfront land on Phuket’s central sunset coast at Kamala, offering a unique natural setting that will be sensitively developed to include private luxury estates and oceanside apartments, upscale hospitality, lifestyle retail and wellness offerings, as well as a choice of sophisticated beach facilities.
The developers have engaged a team of top master planners, architects and designers committed to utilizing what is arguably the last site of this scale and beauty on Phuket’s west coast, and certainly the only absolute mountainside to beachfront project on Asia’s leading resort island.
The site itself is a gem of rare quality, offering almost 820 feet (250 metres) of beach frontage shaded by mature Casuarina trees and leading up to a 200-year-old untouched tropical forest where many existing trees have been protected during an exhaustive master planning exercise.
- Create a lifestyle / destination brand that occupies a unique position in the luxury Asian marketplace
- Create a brand that will engage, delight and have magnetic appeal for our target customer groups
- To make sense of the roles and relationships between all partners, facilities and amenities
- To provide clear, practical and robust briefs for the implementation of the positioning
Sustainable Design & Quality of Life
The vision is to create a unique and sustainable Asian resort community, a responsible and cultural sustainability.
Goal: Preserve and enrich Phuket’s physical and cultural identity while creating an always-improving quality of life for its residents.
This project recognizes the importance of sustainable design and will incorporate it into all aspects of the design, ranging from site planning to architectural design and building management.
A genuine sustainable and eco-friendly development
MontAzure will “own” the image of being a genuine, sustainable leisure community – the first in Asia in terms of design & materials, best practices in recycling, waste management, energy savings, environmental friendly materials used for maintenance, use of rain, etc. This will be a showcase for the best sustainable leisure community in Thailand, and in Asia.
“The poetic quality of the work expresses life’s natural inspiration; sunlight touching a wall, the drama in turning a corner and revealing twilight’s luminous glow.”
Twinpalms Residences MontAzure are grouped as a series of low-rise clusters with private elevators to reach each floor. The buildings have been orchestrated around one of two generous communal swimming pools and offer intimate views of the beautifully landscaped gardens and inspiring tropical surroundings. A varied selection of one – and two-bedroom unit types all feature tall windows and wide balconies that maximize the views, while generous rooftop terraces and ground floor gardens also allow residents and guests to make the most of the kind Phuket climate. The interior spaces have been meticulously planned and oriented to provide a rare combination of openness and privacy, and options are available to combine two units in order to create a three-bedroom residence.
“The overall design scheme is imbued with a lush sense of the unique location, a memory of Phuket’s craft traditions and true understanding of tropical living.”
