Samui Property

Thanks to the favourable climate, low cost of living and established service industries, there will always be a demand for holiday, second or retirement homes on Samui, as is the case in more established locations like Phuket and Pattaya.

The property market on Koh Samui was buoyant for a number of years before political uncertainty and unclear signals from central government regarding foreign investment, led to a leveling off. However, political instability did not ‘put off’ investors, and according to some analysts, simply encouraged a ‘wait and see’ philosophy that, now conditions are improving on both the political and the finance fronts, has already prompted a rapid influx of capital investment.
Despite regional uncertainty and some ups and downs in investor confidence, the Thai Gulf island of Koh Samui, has enjoyed relatively steady demand and supply of all types of land and property, that is set to continue in the near future.

Thailand has long been one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia is now establishing the kind of infrastructure that ensures a quality of life on a par with other international resort destinations.

Recent trends suggest a general move up-market, with a number of branded mixed-use resort developments scheduled for completion in the next two to three years.
Low rise condominium projects are also entering the market, offering low cost alternatives to the luxury villa sector, but still with onsite facilities and services.
