Voted one of the top 20 Top Resort Properties in Asia by Property Report magazine, The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui is making its debut in the Hong Kong market with a series of invitation-only launch events in Hong Kong, from 4th to 7th November 2011 at W Hong Kong.

For the Hong Kong debut, 12 villas, including four new beachfront residences are available for sale in Hong Kong, with prices starting from HKD16.3 million.

Owned and developed by Amburaya Hotels & Resorts and Istithmar World, The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui, Thailand, along with W Retreat Koh Samui, brings a new dimension of cutting-edge design, contemporary lifestyle, modern comfort and a new level of indulgence to Thailand.

"We are thrilled to have this unique opportunity to present The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui directly to discerning buyers in Hong Kong," said Sunny Bajaj, Managing Director of Amburaya Hotels & Resorts.  "The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui represent a perfect convergence of opportunities for discerning owners - one of the world's most exclusive resort destinations, the world's most desired lifestyle residential brand and all its attendant services, and world-class residences with contemporary design and modern comfort," added Bajaj.


"Engel & Voelkers Thailand and Hong Kong are both delighted to be associated with The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui, a lifestyle quality development," said Duangjai Kraus, Executive Chairman of Engel & Voelkers, Thailand, the appointed agent for the project's launch in Hong Kong.

Koh Samui is regarded as one of the world's most exclusive tropical resort destinations (Koh Samui was listed third in the New York Times' list of 'Places to Go in 2011').  This third largest island in Thailand is a favorite getaway for global jetsetters and avid trend seekers on the trail of what's next, those seeking to be wowed by the finer things in life - particularly those inspired by the W brand's unique mix of contemporary cool design, modern comfort, and innovative style.  This includes everyone from busy executives, those looking for a weekend or holiday home to early retirees with time to appreciate Thailand and Koh Samui's culture, cuisine, sun, sea and sand.

Among the many distinguishing characteristics of The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui are its limited number - only 12 private residences for sale, a true symbol of prestige and exclusivity and its prime location on a stunning 900 meters shoreline, surrounded by verdant foliage.  The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui adjoin the W Retreat Koh Samui at Maenam Beach on the island's sublimely beautiful north shore -- arguably the best location on Koh Samui, given its secluded beach and interesting topography -- providing all residents and guests with excellent views.

The Residences at W Retreat Koh Samui offer owners a combination of stylish beachfront villas, ranging from two to five bedrooms and from 515 to 1,170 square meters (built up area).  Each residence is a study in tropical Zen style with exotic touches, and each offers full access to the signature W comforts, services and amenities available at the award winning W Retreat Koh Samui, voted to Conde Nast Traveler's prestigious 'Hot List' for 2011 and Travel + Leisure's 'It List: The Best New Hotels in 2011'.
