The estate is set among pristine woodland, in view of a lushly forested hillside from which ancient Buddhist temples peer out upon the surrounding landscape. All around, the natural countryside remains virginal and will remain so for some considerable time to come. The location of Krihaat Lakeside is perfectly placed, minutes from the Sukhumvit Highway, affording easy access to the thriving tourist resort city of Pattaya, the Eastern Seaboard’s industrial hinterland and the region’s highway network with the local airport, U-Tapau, within 30 minutes and Bangkok and its international airports, Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang, less than one and a half hour’s journey away.When the high-speed rail link and the Chonburi Bypass are completed, travelling time to the capital will be cut to 45 minutes, making Krihaat Lakeside a perfect commuting location for those who work in the capital, the local industrial estates, or in nearby Chonburi.

This provides an ideal solution to those who are, by necessity, obliged to work in the region, but who wish to live in rural tranquillity. Krihaat Lakeside itself represents certainly one of the most cost-effective investment opportunities in the whole of the Eastern region. At prices ranging from just US$ 374,400 (Bt.12,729,60) for a three bedroom villa to US$ 660,100 (Bt.22,443,40) for a five bedroom villa, these represent the most optimal value for money; so much so that of the 14, 8 have already been sold to discerning investors.

Payment is in five easy stages with a 30-year in perpetuity freehold, guaranteed by an offshore company in Hong Kong, and developer finance is currently under consideration. The estate comprises a lavish 15 acre total area, allowing extremely spacious individual plot sizes, ranging from 20,624 to 29,694 sq.ft., assuring complete privacy and expansive living and recreational space. The villas’ living areas range from a generous 3,900 to 5,740 sq.ft., allowing ample space for every normal family activity.

Added to this each villa has its own private swimming pool. The villas, themselves, give the impression of size and grandeur and are an exotic blend of Asian and Western architecture with extensive teakwood throughout. Modern conveniences include Thai and European kitchens, double roof insulation to reduce electrical costs, underground electrical installations, central air-conditioning, built-in pest control, and wired-in CATV, satellite or ADSL internet. Natural features include hand finished stone on columns and trim, granite, marble and Italian tiling. The villas combine the best of Thai traditional features such as external salas, maids’ quarters, overhangs and sun decks. Buy-to-let investors are well taken care of with capable management facilities and a rental pool.

Family investors have the satisfaction of having the choice of five international schools to hand and gated security, plus a 24/7 security operation within the estate. Investors who wish only to use the villas as part-time vacation retreats can also rest assured that their property will be well cared for by the management team. In short, Krihaat Lakeside is the perfect investment opportunity for all conceivable tastes and capital appreciation is almost guaranteed due to the fact that the Pattaya region is becoming increasingly more gentrified, land prices are at a premium and are slated to double over the next five years, according to local real estate advisors. Krihaat Lakeside is ideally situated for golfing aficionados, allowing access to any of the 22+ excellent golf courses, some of which are world-class, having been designed by such notables as Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Pete Dye; representing the veritable Golfer’s Tropical Paradise. Already, investors in Krihaat Lakeside include a professional, master-class player and a golf course sculptor, so golfing enthusiasts will be among kindred spirits. However, for those for whom golf is not their passion, such as families, couples, singles, and vacationers there is every other conceivable leisure activity on the doorstep.

Nearby Pattaya, soon to be the leisure capital of Thailand, especially with the transfer of entertainments and the Turf Club from Bangkok, offers a multitude of pleasure activities. This even more so with the proposed construction of a water-borne restaurant and shopping complex at Jomtien Beach and “The Beach”, the world’s first cyber beach city and Disneyland-style water theme park at Bang Saray. Placed midway between the unspoilt beaches of Bang Saray and Baan Saen, there are water-sports galore, including yachting, jet skiing, swimming, diving, snorkelling, fishing, both local and deep-sea, and pleasure cruises to the myriad, picturesque islands in the vicinity. For children and the young-at-heart there are ATV and go-kart tracks close to hand, and for adults, even an internationally accredited race track at Bira circuit, which regularly holds rounds for the Thai Touring Car Championship, along with motor-cross for the more daring.

Children can revel in the wild life facilities of snake farms, elephant treks and tiger zoos in the vicinity and there’s even a safari park soon to be opened. For the more culturally atuned, the royal wat complex of Yansangwararam and its Buddha Mountain and the Chinese temple of Vihansian are close to hand, as is the tropical garden paradise of Nong Nooch, with its myriad plant species. For the more adventurous, paragliding, microlite and small aircraft flying, bungee jumping and Mauy Thai (Thai Boxing) will gladden their hearts. Pattaya is a modern, cosmopolitan city offering comprehensive shopping facilities with everything from top class shopping malls to bustling markets, where local handicrafts, Buddha statues, Asian antiques and artefacts can be picked up for a song. Fine dining restaurants rival Bangkok in their gourmet cuisine, while the local Thai, Esarn, Chinese, Indian and Lao restaurants provide a plethora of culinary delights. Wellness centres, massage parlours, yoga centres and spas cater to the health and beauty conscious and gyms allow keep-fit enthusiasts to fine-tone their musculature.

Three cinemas are located in the local shopping malls and there’s even to be a local amateur dramatic society for live theatre. As for Pattaya’s legendary night life, there’s nothing to rival it anywhere in the Southeast Asian region, with its flamboyant transgender floor shows, and multitude of beer and go-go bars. In short, Pattaya caters to every conceivable taste and will thus be able to satisfy any of the prospective Krihaat investors, no matter what their predilections. However, for those who are not so externally oriented, the estate provides sufficient amenities in situ, so that there is no need to venture far afield. With the central lake affording leisurely strolls, the individual swimming pools, a proposed putting green and the surrounding countryside, there is sufficient to occupy oneself purely within the grounds of the estate.

All told, Krihaat Lakeside is the ideal location and represents one of the best possible investments one can make anywhere in Southeast Asia, with capital appreciation effectively guaranteed. So if you desire to live fulltime in a tropical paradise, are a buy-to-let investor, or just wish to make the investment of a lifetime, Krihaat Lakeside is the place for you.
