Travelling and yachting are amongst my greatest passions, and I have been fortunate to be able to pursue them both wholeheartedly. Yet, as I travelled the world, I experienced many amazing destinations and resorts, but nothing that really struck me with its perfection – nothing had it all.
Then I discovered Phuket and fell in love. For me, Phuket had all the elements for the perfect yachting destination. It is the maritime jewel of Asia – so convenient to get to from anywhere in the world. The beautiful surrounds, the breathtaking land and seascapes, and the year-round tropical weather make it ideal for yachting. It is neither overpopulated nor over-commercialised, like many European yachting destinations.
I saw an immense opportunity in Phuket – one that no one else had yet pursued. Royal Phuket Marina is the result of my ambition to put Phuket on the map as an international yachting and lifestyle destination.
Royal Phuket Marina is a resounding success, with all of our Phase 1 and Phase 2 residential developments sold out. Investors and competitors alike have shown keen interest in the scale of our ambition. I am honoured that the world has recognised Royal Phuket Marina’s achievements by granting us the ‘Best Developer, Best Waterfront Development Asia 2010’ at the Cityscape Awards in Singapore, one of the world’s largest property shows
