Club Class in the Country on Koh Samui
Nestled in the hills above Mae Nam and boasting stunning views across to neighboring Koh Phagnan, the Koh Samui Country Club (KSCC) is poised to set a new standard in deluxe tropical living on the Thai island of Koh Samui.
Developed and managed by the Beach Republic Group, responsible for the hip and fashionable Beach Republic Ocean Club in Lamai, KSCC will boast an upscale yet casual atmosphere where both locals and jet setters alike can let loose and enjoy the good life. Set on 30 rai of land (approximately 14 acres), KSCC is planned as a destination resort and has been designed for maximum enjoyment of the stunning aspect. The Club Suites (open plan studios), luxury apartments (one and two bedroom properties) and Penthouse Sky Villas (private pools in selected units) will be stylish and contemporary and set into the Country Club’s landscaped grounds in buildings of just three storeys.
The 28 private pool villas have been inspired by the ultra successful Beach Republic The Residences, where owners enjoy modern outdoor tropical living with master bedrooms opening directly to chemical-free infinity edge pools. Designed by award-winning architect David McCormick, each villa will look out over a fantastic scene of coconut palms, with neighboring islands dotting the bright blue sea.
The two apartment buildings (Coconut and Palm) are served by glass-fronted elevators, offering owners and guests stunning views of the panorama as they enter and leave their properties, which all benefit from excellent natural light, large balconies and amazing sea views. Granite kitchen surfaces, marble and stone bathroom features, and tastefully selected artwork provide the finishing touches which set these generously sized resort properties in a class of their own. Further amenities such as 300 thread count cotton sheets, flat screen TV’s, iPod docks, BluRay disc players, and personal espresso machines provide luxurious touches.
The Clubhouse at KSCC is the center of leisure and social activities. Whether the preference is for laps in the infinity pool, a workout in the well-equipped gym, or an exhilarating game of tennis, the amenities offer a realm of sporting options.
The man behind KSCC is English property developer Tim Dean-Smith. Raised in a family with a long history of real estate development and construction, he decided to make Samui his home in 2002. During the past eight years he has launched Beach Republic Ocean Club in Lamai.
The adjacent Beach Republic The Residences, a collection of private pool villas, spacious suites, and private pool penthouses is always in high demand. Indeed, when units were made available for sale in mid 2009, there was immediate interest with more than 50 per cent of available inventory being snapped up by savvy investors within the first year alone.
This same casual yet sophisticated formula that Beach Republic has refined is sure to be reflected in the development and management of KSCC, a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by many owners at Beach Republic The Residences who have already secured units at KSCC.
Speaking about the concept behind KSCC, Dean-Smith said:, “The combination of luxurious residences, stunning views, fantastic amenities and the convenience of living with full round-the-clock resort services is unbeatable. KSCC offers great value for buyers, and is an ideal way to combine lifestyle with investment for holiday home purchasers.”
