Review: Baan Mai Khao, Phuket
We visit the Baan Mai Khao in Phuket, Thailand to see just what the property has in store for those looking to own a scenic beach condominium.
- Located on the beautiful Andaman Sea, Baan Mai Khao, Phuket, is the first freehold beach condominium development in the Thalang district. Heading north 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport, which will see its expansion complete in May of this year, you’ll find yourself in an exclusive coastal area known as Mai Khao Beach.
Encompassing 5.4 acres, Baan Mai Khao features six, three – storey buildings and three, five – storey buildings. The developer, Sansiri, has created the concept of “barefoot luxury”, in which you have a high-class getaway surrounded by nature. Residents of the 206 units enjoy the lifestyle of being in a tropical getaway from the moment they enter the lobby. A semi-outdoor space with a direct view of the sea. Immediately all your worries drift away as the beautiful scenery encapsulates you.
Gardens feature local trees unique to Mai Khao Beach, while the architecture and design is in a Sino – Portuguese style, paying tribute to Phuket’s historical roots. The blending of outdoors and indoors continues as you walk through the development. A long pool stretches the length of the property, with some units having direct pool access from their terrace. Direct access to the sea is only a few footsteps away past a beachfront pool. Once on the beach, 230 feet are at your disposal.
There are five unit types available: One-bedroom, two-bedroom, two-bedroom duplex, three-bedroom and penthouses. Sizes range from 640 sq. ft. for the one-bedroom all the way up to 2,380.9 sq. ft. for the largest penthouse. The entire development features: 3 swimming pools, a fitness centre, beachfront BBQ area, 24-hour security and concierge service, as well as multiple outdoor recreational areas. Buyer’s can choose from 8 different interior designs, created in collaboration with design firm Chanintr Living. There’s also the ability to have the interior designed based on whether the buyer will use the residence themselves or they plan on renting it out.
Exploring the area of Mai Khao beach is quite unique. Other than the incredible beach itself which is tranquil and mostly untouched, there’s a mixture of lakes, outdoor food stalls, 5 star hotels and shopping. In fact, just a short stroll north along the beach and you’ll arrive at the Renaissance Phuket and the JW Marriott.
