World Tennis Association number one ranked Female player Justine Henin has selected an apartment on Koh Samui to be her holiday home in Thailand.
The Belgian recently picked up a unit in Infinity Samui, a new gated low rise luxury development on a prominent hillside position with panoramic ocean views located in the Mae Nam area of Koh Samui.
The development was recently launched by Savills in Dubai with high levels of interest received.
Commenting on her purchase, Henin said: “I am delighted to have selected Infinity Samui for my holiday home in Thailand as the design and stunning ocean views provide for a truly tropical modern environment.”
Developed by Infinity Properties, the 65-unit development is due for completion in mid-2009. It features units ranging in size from 167-406sqm with prices starting at Bt9.8 million. The first phase is located on the hilliest part of the site and contains 28 apartments and six penthouses, some with private pool; others have access to a 1,400 m2 public pool. The second phase consists of 25 spacious apartment villas and six penthouses, all with private pools nestled in a peaceful landscape of palm trees and greenery.
“The different phases will be constructed in such a way that neither the views nor the peace of the finished properties will be disturbed at any time during the construction works,” says the developer. “In fact, the first and second phase will be finished approximately at the same time. The zone in front of the project is protected from future development.”
Robert Collins, managing director of Savills (Thailand) Limited, the sole marketing agents for Infinity Samui, commented: “Justine’s interest in Koh Samui underscores the high level of demand for holiday homes in Thailand and is a positive endorsement for the development and the island.”
