Smaller, Cheaper Hotel Residences Flood Phuket Market
The continuing wave of developers bringing hotel investment grade real estate to the Phuket real estate market is escalating.
Notable new entries include 74 units at the Melia Phuket Karon Residences are now for sale.
Pricing for one and two-bedroom units starts at THB8.4 million.
A 7% three-year guarantee is offered with 30 days owner usage.
Meanwhile at the newly launched Radisson Mai Khao 110 condominium hotel residences range from 41-132 square meters.
Prices go from THB7.2 million with a three-year guaranteed return of 6%.
Laguna Phuket which is a good barometer of the island’s broader resort-grade real estate sector recently launched their Skypark entry level condominium under THB3 million.
As real estate prices shrink, so is unit size and pressure on the once dominant villa market is mounting.
There is growing concern that Phuket’s current real estate cycle is starting to mimic the big box condominium build-up in Spain’s resort property sector in the early to mid-2000’s and later came unhinged during the global financial crisis.
