Work is now underway on the Mandalay Villas, a project which its developers say will bring “high-end quality and modern design style” to Samui for an affordable price.
The developers behind the project, Mandalay Samui, built up an impressive portfolio of developments in its managing director´s home country, Hungary, before entering the Thai market.
“We had many property developments in Budapest, where we built more than 10000sqm,” said Tibor Szedlak, the firm´s owner. He continued, “Two years ago, I spent three days on Samui visiting friends and after a quick look around on the local property market, I asked the Horizon Homes Real Estate Agency to show me some available land. The land [which is the site of the Mandalay Villas project] was the first they showed me, and I felt in love immediately. I came back one month later, to start The Mandalay Villas project.”
The location, on the hillside of Plai Laem, Choeng Mon, appears to have been a strong choice. It commands spectacular sunset and ocean views and is just 10 minutes from Samui International Airport. Choeng Mon beach is five minutes from the project site and it is just two minutes journey time to Thong Son beach. A number of gourmet dining and shopping options are available in a the nearby Fisherman Village. A number of five-star hotels, such as Sila Evasion, Sala and Thong Son Bay, have also chosen to open in the area in the area.
