More than 50 Thai and international children joined the event and were divided into groups based on their swimming skills, first language and age group. The kids were given instruction on a range of key skills by a team of 12 visiting professional lifeguards from Australia, assisted by 15 lifeguards from around Phuket. The training sessions included basic water safety principals, the role of a lifeguard, basic CPR, and understanding tides and surf conditions. 

Captain Boworn Promkeawngam of the Royal Thai Navy’s Third Area Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) and Khun Karoon Sriden, Chief Executive of Kamala Sub-district Administrative Organization joined the event, along with seven members of the MontAzure executive team, who lent a hand and make sure the children were engaged and motivated throughout the day. MontAzure will also provide ongoing support a “Nippers Lifesaving Club” to be implemented later in the year. 

“We are pleased to support this important initiative and help increase awareness and knowledge of beach safety amongst local children and their parents by providing on going assistance and volunteer participation,” says Setthaphol Boottho, Executive Director, MontAzure. 

The Kids Water Safety Program is an island-wide initiative designed to encourage children to have fun while learning to stay safe at the beach. Young participants join in a wide range of games, sports and educational activities, which are designed to build confidence in and around the water. 

The educational component of the program also includes beach safety, sun safety, learning what a lifesaver is and what they do, as well as fun physical activities include wading, board paddling and beach games. Older kids are also introduced to some of the basic principles of surf safety such as general rescue techniques and first aid. 

Phuket Life Saving Club was formed in 2003 by a group of trained lifeguards, former lifeguards and concerned citizens with the aim to develop lifesaving around Phuket by improving water safety at pools and beaches. 

The club has worked closely with Surf Lifesaving Australia for several years to develop programs and bring professional trainers to Phuket to train lifeguards on an annual basis. “The idea is to teach skills that will stick like sand from the beach with these kids. Something that can be carried for life,” explains David Field, Life Saving Development Officer from Australian Volunteers for International Development. “It’s not only about prevent accidents, but also promoting lifesaving as a sport.”

MontAzure Upscale Mixed-use Community on Phuket Welcomes Major New Partnerships as it Forges Ahead with Development

Phuket, Thailand: An upmarket senior living village valued at approximately THB 3.5 billion (USD100 Million) will be integrated into Phuket’s rapidly expanding MontAzure mixed-use development in Kamala as the project fast evolves into one of Asia is most exceptional luxury lifestyle communities. 

Kamala Senior Living Co Ltd, a partnership between Thai property firm Nye Estate Co Ltd, Chewathai Public Co Ltd, LPN Development Plc and CH Karnchang Plc, is part of a joint venture company that will develop the village within the larger MontAzure mixed-use community. 

Upscale residences are planned for the project, which will occupy a secluded hillside location offering buyers a peaceful, natural setting with exceptional sea and sunset views. The development will also provide a range of dedicated facilities and amenities for mature residents, and will be managed by a leading international senior living brand. 

Khun Setthaphol Boottho, Executive Director, MontAzure believes the time is right to launch a high-quality residential option for mature investors on Phuket, especially one with international standard facilities and services. 

“Senior living communities have long been popular in Europe, Australia and the USA, but we are now seeing more of these upmarket villages in Asia, as affluent buyers look for safe, comfortable residential options in the region’s most appealing locations,” he said. 

According to the latest senior living research reports, China is a fast growing source of investment into retirement communities across Asia. A recent study of HNWI by Hurun Report revealed that 28 percent of them saw medium- to high-end senior living developments as their personal post-retirement plan, a jump of 87 percent compared with 2015. This trend is reflected in other parts of Asia, where the baby-boomer generation no longer considers close family support an essential requirement in their later years.

“MontAzure is at the forefront of a wider trend on Phuket that has seen luxury resort property come back into the investment spotlight, particularly along the island’s central west coast beaches. Being part of a mixed-use development makes MontAzure the ideal choice for mature buyers looking to escape the city without missing out on sophisticated lifestyle options,” added Mr. Boottho. 

The first phase of the MontAzure development, Twinpalms Residences MontAzure, features 75 upscale branded condominium units right by Kamala Beach which is already substantially sold out ahead of its completion next year. Meanwhile, two popular venues – Café Del Mar and HQ Beach Lounge – are already in operation on the MontAzure beachfront. 

The development’s anchor hotel, InterContinental Phuket Resort, broke ground in mid-July and will open in 2019 to offer guests a combination of luxurious rooms, suites and villas supported by the high service standards expected from InterContinental Hotels and Resorts. The resort will be and the 19th IHG property in Thailand.

The event is an annual educational camp, this year held from 5-20 April, to help children learn social skills and build the essentials of good citizenship. The camp takes place at Kamala Child Development Center with 200 children attending from the local area. Over the last few years, the developers of MontAzure have provided regular support to the local community in Kamala by providing equipment for kindergarten classes, sponsorship for English teachers and scholarships for students that pass the university entrance exam.

“MontAzure is always happy to support valuable community activities such as the summer camp as we believe they offer a very good opportunity for children to learn and develop important skills,” said Khun Setthaphol. “As a permanent part of Kamala we are keen to make a positive contribution for future generations.’

MontAzure Brings Chillout Master Cafe Del Mar to it’s Oceanfront Development on Phuket

BANGKOK, THAILAND – The developers of Phuket’s most expansive upscale resort and residential community, MontAzure, have announced the latest exciting addition to its beachfront site in Kamala bay – an upscale beach club branded by world famous Café Del Mar

The region’s hippest new beachside venue is already under construction and will occupy a 2.5 Rai (4000 sqm) site with 40 metres of beach frontage. A slick, contemporary tropical design has been created by award-winning K-Studio whose other signature projects include several celebrated retail, residential and leisure developments in Greece, including the ultra-stylish, heritage-inspired Scorpios Beach Club in Mykonos.

The team behind Café Del Mar Phuket brings together two prominent figures in the areas of hospitality, entertainment and retail development. Santeri Nurmi has several years experience creating and managing successful nightlife venues on the Island.

“As the island’s longest established entertainment specialists, it’s a great honour for us to work with two major names on such a high-profile project for Phuket,” said Santeri Nurmi, Managing Director of Café Del Mar, Phuket. “The stunning waterfront strip at MontAzure is second-to-none and the perfect location for a lifestyle driven international beach club. Café Del Mar will also provide the ideal venue for unrivalled events and world class performances. ”

“The arrival of such an iconic brand on the island demonstrates Phuket’s ongoing appeal as a premium destination” commented advisor to the venture, Ms. Supaluck Umpujh, chairwoman of The Mall Group, whose portfolio of projects include Siam Paragon, Emporium, EmQuartier, the recently opened BLUPORT Hua Hin Resort Mall and the upcoming BLUPEARL, the first world class luxury retail and entertainment center in Phuket, scheduled to open in 2018.

“We have been looking at Phuket for many years, but in the past the infrastructure was lacking. Things are improving now, an extension of the airport is taking place, the formation of the Asean Economic Community [AEC]; it all can help Phuket become a playground of Southeast Asia,” Ms. Supaluck added.

The Café del Mar brand has built an inimitable reputation around the globe for its laid back coastal venues and original chill-out tunes. The label was born in Ibiza in 1980 at a bar next to San Antonio beach, and grew from the simple notion that people enjoy a relaxed evening by the sea while listening to great music and sipping on top quality drinks. Since 1994, Café del Mar has been releasing its own compilations of chill out, lounge, ambient, chill house and Balearic beats – music that reflects the spirit and atmosphere of Ibiza. With more than 70 CD releases to date and millions of copies sold, Café del Mar is one of the largest music publishers of its genre in the world. A line-up of world class musicians have worked with the label including Moby, Underworld, Chicane, the legendary DJ Sanchez and José Padilla.

“ Introducing such an illustrious global name as Café Del Mar to the beachfront zone at MontAzure underlines our commitment to the very best international standards as we continue to build Southeast Asia’s most impressive oceanfront resort and residential community,” said MontAzure Executive Director Setthaphol Boottho. “ With partners such as Café Del Mar, Twinpalms, Proud Real Estate and InterContinental Hotel Group, we are quickly positioning the North Kamala beachfront as Phuket’s high-end hospitality hotspot.”
