Buyers will have an option to make their unit available for renting out by a professional operator. Onsite facilities will include a Residents’ Lobby, Restuarant, Room Service, Pool Bar, Gym/Yoga Studio, Spa Pavilions, Library and Lounge, and Outdoor event spaces. Staff will be on duty 24 hours a day to assist residents and guests.
What other facilities and services will be available to buyers?
The full vision for the MontAzure mixed-use development includes an international anchor hotel, ultra luxury private estates, beach clubs, an upscale lifestyle and retail centre, medical wellness spa and protected forest nature reserve.
What are the options to customize the units?
Should a buyer decide to join the rental program no customization of the unit will be allowed. However, buyers who choose not to join the rental program can customize their units in consultation with the project’s interior designers. No changes to the exterior of the apartment will be permitted.
What is the construction schedule?
Construction will take a minimum of 24 months from breaking ground, which is planned for Q2 2016. Completion is therefore expected in 2018.
What type of furniture, fixtures and fittings are used?
Fit-out will be of the highest international standard. These items will complement the contemporary tropical design of the development and will be carefully chosen to suit the location, taking into account that many units may be occupied on a short-term basis.
Obviously different suppliers and products offer different warranties, and these warranties and documentation will form part of the hand over package.
What is the ownership structure at Twinpalms Residences MontAzure?
Twinpalms Residences MontAzure will be sold as registered condominiums under the Condominium Act of Thailand. As such, 49% of the sellable space is offered to foreign buyers with a foreign freehold title while the remaining 51% are offered either as Thai freehold or foreign leasehold titles.
What are the taxes and costs associated with the purchase of a residence?
The developer covers all transfer taxes and fees for Leasehold title. For Freehold 1% of Land Department Assessment Value is charged to the buyer while all other fees or taxes are covered by the developer.
How much will the common area management fee be?
It is estimated that this fee will be charged at THB 80 per square metre per month. The final figure will be determined at the time of registration of the condominium.
How much will the sinking fund contribution be?
Each owner will contribute to the sinking fund an amount equivalent to THB 700/square metre. This is a once off payment but when monies from the sinking fund are used for necessary repairs or maintenance owners will be requested to contribute to topping it up from time to time.
Twinpalms Residences MontAzure will provide a rental opportunity for those buyers who wish to earn a return on their investment. To maximize occupancy and deliver hospitality level services, Kamala Beach Resort & Hotel Management Co Ltd is opting to use a qualified and experienced hotel operator – Twinpalms Management – who will be appointed to manage this program and ensure that owners receive the highest possible yield. However, joining this program is not compulsory and those buyers who wish to retain their property for private use only will be in a position to do so.
What level of rental return can I expect?
The operator will divide the total gross revenue derived from the rental pool on a 40/60 basis – 40% will be paid to the owners and 60% will be retained by the operator. This commercial structure is an improvement on the 50/50 profit split used in other projects in Phuket as conflicts always arise from the lack of transparency on operation costs and expenses. A top-line revenue split removes this uncertainty and protects our buyers and residents. From the operator’s share, all operating expenses will be paid. Such expenses will include (but not be limited to) utilities, marketing, salaries, cleaning equipment and all other necessary expenses in order to operate the rental program in an efficient and proper manner.
From the owner’s share the Common Area Management Fee must be paid (which is estimated to be THB 80 per square metre) as well as any taxes levied by the Thai Government. The owner will also be expected to insure the contents of the unit on an annual basis.
Below is an example of how the rental split will be determined:
|Average Daily Rate of 1 & 2 bedroom units in THB||12,472|
|Gross Revenue in Thai Baht||2,282,376|
|40% Revenue Share to Owner||912,950|
What are the terms & conditions of my 45 day usage?
The owner will be entitled to use the unit for 45 days per annum. The owner can utilize those days at anytime of the year. However, the number of days forfeited per stay will depend on the time of the year when the visit takes place.
-During the summer season (1 May to 31 October) each day of stay will equal one day of own usage.
-During the high season (1 November to 19 December and 11 January to 30 April) each day of stay will equal two days of own usage.
-During the peak season (20 December to 10 January) each day of stay will equal four days of own usage. These dates may be adjusted by the operator every year depending on their marketing for the peak season.
Should an owner’s occupancy exceed the 45 days, a preferential daily rate will be charged.
What is my personal responsibility for the daily service?
During the 45 days of personal use the owner will be charged a daily rate in order to cover utilities and other costs associated with cleaning and maintaining the unit and preparing for the next hotel guest. It is estimated that the daily rate for a one-bedroom unit will be THB 600 (THB 1,000 with pool) and for a two-bedroom THB 1,000 (THB 1,500 with pool). The owner will receive a full maid service during those 45 days.
This fee will inclue breakfast for two persons in the case of an one bedroom unit and for four persons in the case of a two bedroom unit.
Checkin 2 pm. Check out 12 noon.
There is no guaranteed return offered at Twinpalms Residences MontAzure as is typical with luxury real estate offerings. However, it is believed that the potential of a good return is very high considering the location and quality of the development as well as the fact that the operator will be a hotel group and not the typical asset managers, so they are very experienced in running such a rental scheme and driving occupancy.
How much for the utility fees?
In the case of units who have joined the rental program, the operator will cover the cost of the utilities when the unit is being rented out. In the case of owners who are not part of the rental program, they will be charged on a monthly basis based on actual consumption. The utility deposit is THB 50,000.
What about the management of my unit?
The operator will provide a full management service for units which have joined the rental program. In the case of units which are not part of the program an arrangement can be made with the operator to manage the unit.
How much notice must be given to join or leave the rental program?
If a buyer chooses to join the rental program at the time of purchasing the unit it is bound to remain in the program for 15 years. However, any unit which is not included at the time of purchase, can join and leave at the discretion of the owner. However, the unit must be included in the program by no later than 1 July of that year and must remain for at least one year. Should the owner wish to remove the unit from the program at least 6 months written notice must be given to the operator.
Will I be entitled to any special privileges at Twinpalms?
Each owner who joins the rental program will be issued with a Twinpalms Privilege Card which is renewable each year. This card will entitle the owner to various discounts at Twinpalms outlets the details of which will be updated from time to time. Each unit will be issued with only one card and if the card is lost a fee will be charged for its replacement.
How is my rental income paid?
The rental income will be paid into the owner’s bank account on a six monthly basis in arrears with details of the calculation of the payment provided at that time.
Can I rent the unit out on my own?
Owners at Twinpalms Residences MontAzure will only be entitled to rent out their units on a short term basis through the appointed operator.
How long for the advance notice of my stay?
In order to ensure that the owner’s unit is available during the stay it is recommended that at least 6 months notice be given. However, shorter notice will be allowed in which case the owner will be allocated another similar unit should his/her unit not be available. In the event that an owner wishes to cancel a booking a minimum of 14 (Fourteen) days notice must be given to the operator. Shorter notice will result in those personal use days which were used for the booking being lost.
Can I choose my own furniture?
For those owners who elect to join the rental program a standard furniture and hospitality package will be made available which must be purchased through the developer. There can be no deviation from this package and the price is not included in the unit price. In the case of owners who do not join the rental program they will be entitled to furnish their property as they choose. However, should such an owner decide to join the rental program in the future the unit would have to comply with all the requirements of the operator.
Can my friends/family use my owner’s entitlement?
Friends and family of the owner are entitled to use the unit subject to any terms and conditions contained in the agreement between the owner and the operator. Please note that the daily rate for maid service and to refresh the room will apply.

Kamala also offers easy access to a multitude of nearby attractions and activities, including watersports and marine excursions, cultural sites and live entertainment. In short, Kamala is in a perfect location to make the most of everything Phuket has to offer.
MontAzure residents will enjoy privileged access to a pristine strip of beach at beautiful Kamala Bay fronting their own private Beach Club. Many of Phuket’s finest beaches are a short drive away, including the broad sweep of Surin Beach to the north, with its choice of upscale restaurants and bars and the newly rejuvenated spectacle of Patong Beach to the south. Legendary dive spots like the Similan Islands await exploration, as do exotic deserted beaches on castaway islands in the shadows of spectacular limestone karsts, all part of the playground MontAzure residents can enjoy at their leisure from their idyllic base in the Andaman’s new pinnacle of luxurious mountain to oceanside escape.
Phuket’s Bang Pae and Ton Sai Waterfalls are located in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, located in the quiet, gentle surrounds. Nature trails begin at Ton Sai Waterfall, a small yet beautifully picturesque waterfall at the foot of Phuket’s largest untouched area of forest and what is today a conserved national park. Rising to over 450 metres above sea level, expect a mezmerising green adventure offering caves, limestone cliffs and karsts, rivers and waterfalls, and glimpses of some of the island’s most rare and fascinating flora and fauna, from the rare palm, ‘Kerriodoxa elegans’ and ‘Raffelsia’, the world’s largest flower, to a huge variety of tropical birds, animal, insects, reptiles and plant life, plus elephants, tapirs and a world-famous sanctuary where domesticated gibbons are cared for and eased back into the wild.
MontAzure will raise the bar on fine dining on Phuket, with a selection of showcase restaurants and bars planned. In the meantime, there is no shortage of storied wining and dining options available to Phuket residents and visitors. Current favourites range from innovative dishes at Breeze at Cape Yamu to Acqua at Kalim Beach with its modern Italian ethos. Another Kalim denizen is Bar & Bed Home Kitchen, then there’s gastronomic heaven to be found at Dedos at Bangtao. Boathouse Wine & Grill graces Kata Beach, along with famed Mom Tri’s Kitchen at Kata Noi. Trendy Joe’s Downstairs and Le Versace are both at Patong Beach, and a best kept secret now spilling out to wider acclaim is Ka Jok See in Phuket town.
MontAzure will add a lustre of elegance and upscale variety to the myriad shopping options available to residents and guests on Phuket. Everything from fascinating bazaars and roadside stalls through to shimmering, endless department stores and eclectic, funky boutiques abound on the Pearl of the Andaman. Fine examples of traditional handicrafts, textiles, gems, jewellery and antiques, as well as clothing and everyday items can be found at almost every turn. Phuket Town and Patong Beach offer the most variety, with Jungceylon, the sprawling emporium at Patong, just 15 minutes’ drive from MontAzure.
Nightlife still means Patong Beach for many visitors and residents on Phuket, with the glittering beachside strip offering everything from stylish bars and fine dining through to cavernous drinking holes and neon-splashed adult entertainment zones For less glaring nightlife there are plenty of other options beyond Patong too. MontAzure will add an upscale alternative to Patong with its planned oceanside offerings, which are set to become the last word in tropical island chic. In the meantime, Bang Tao Beach has a good choice of beach clubs with like Nikki Beach, Xana and Bliss.
MontAzure residents will enjoy a world-class health and wellness centre on their doorstep incorporating the very latest approach to wellness from a medically-approved and effective standpoint. Beyond what is available on site, MontAzure will also connect residents to the best of Phuket’s health and wellness offerings, spanning the gamut from Tai Chi and Thai Boxing classes, to yoga, stress relief and traditional Thai massage sessions and lessons.
Phuket has become the sailing mecca of the Andaman region, with the King’s Cup Regatta an annual fixture in the serious sailor’s calendar, and the world’s superyachts flocking to explore its offshore attractions. Ideal for island hopping, sunset cruising and living out Robinson Crusoe castaway fantasies, Phuket is also a paradise for snorkelling and diving, deep sea fishing, speed-boat tours, waterskiing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing and other adrenaline-charged marine activities.
Phuket Town is the heart and soul of Phuket and the best place to encounter a taste of what the Pearl of the Andaman was like in its tin-mining heyday. The beginning of the tin boom in the 19th century led to construction of many fine mansions and shops that are still well preserved. The architectural style, typical of the region, is described as Sino-Portuguese and has a strongly Mediterranean character. Shops present a very narrow face onto the street but stretch back a long way. Many, especially along Dibuk Road, are decorated with old wooden doors boasting Chinese fretwork carving. Other streets including Phangnga, Yaowarat, Thalang and Krabi, are the centre of any walking tour, including grand European-style buildings such as the Provincial Hall, Phuket Courthouse and Nakhon Luang Thai Bank – a living, working museum.
Palleros is renowned for his design vocabulary, which extends across architecture, landscape design, master planning and interiors, with the highest respect for ecological sensitivity, a finely honed sense of aesthetics and an unerring instinct for realising the potential of a spectacular natural setting.
Past projects include Phuket’s Baan Yamu and Twin Palms Hotel, Villa Mayavee on Millionaire’s Row, The Chedi Hotel in Chiang Mai, plus Metropolitan Hotel and Sukhothai Residence in Bangkok.
