Luxury Hotel and Resorts Developer Banyan Tree Holdings Limited is poised to increase their presence in the popular South East Asian Beach Destination of Phuket.
The group will be revitalising and expanding its flagship Banyan Tree Phuket resort to house another two brands. Besides the existing Banyan Tree brand, which is catered to couples and families, Banyan Tree Spa Retreat will be developed to serve the wellness segment, while DPV will be launched to cater to the Luxury Travel market.
These are very exciting times for the Banyan Tree group as it is on the crux of redefining its presence with in the global luxury travel market with its extensive expansion blueprint, which includes countries such as Mauritius, China, Vietnam, India and Philippines amongst others and its plans to revitalise its resorts such as Angsana Bintan, Angsana Velavaru and the already mentioned Banyan Tree Phuket.
Despite its major plans for overseas markets, Singapore, where Banyan Tree is based, is still very much part of the group’s plans, as it seeks to strengthen its brand in overseas markets. Said Mr. Arthur Kiong, Managing Director, Hotel Operations (Asia Pacific) & Group Marketing Services, Banyan Tree, “With a captive market of only 4.5million, Singapore has accounted for 7% of our room nights for 2010, with the 3 most popular destinations being Maldives, Phuket and Bintan.”
The building (the bricks and mortar) can be owned by a non-Thai national outright in their name in what is called the house registry which secures ownership indefinitely of the structure.
In Thailand non-Thai nationals cannot own land outright in their name. Land can be controlled through either a Thai Company or a long-term registered lease. The longest registered lease term by Thai law is 30 years and most developers will offer 3 terms for a total of 90 years.
After you have found the right property at Angsana Villas you have to follow these steps:
A 30-year lease period is legally protected under Thai law and ownership cannot be disrupted. It is common for developers to offer an additional two terms of 30 contractually obligating a total of 90 years.
Prior to purchasing a leasehold property it is important to secure a copy of the lease agreement or get further clarity on these three points.
Thailand has different visas like Spousal Visa, Retirement Visa, Student Visa and Elite Visa - just to name a few options. Each visa has different requirements but they are usually easy to obtain.
