On Saturday night, leading real estate developers, architects, designers and realtors gathered at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok for the Thailand property industry’s most important annual event, the Thailand Property Awards. The event, established in 2006 and sponsored by Ensign Media’s Property Report Asia, is considered the ‘Oscars’ of the industry.

This year the awards had a special significance for Siam Royal View following our nomination for Best Villa Development on the Eastern Seaboard for our development on Koh Chang. The recent boom in luxury property development in Pattaya and across the region meant that it was a hotly contested category. The company has always been confident that the quality of the development speaks for itself, but that did not stop the run up to the ceremony from being a nervous time for all concerned.

The final stage of the competition was a visit from an international panel of distinguished judges who visited Koh Chang earlier in the year to carry out a comprehensive inspection. We were not helped on this occasion as it was a rainy day which is never the best conditions for visiting a beach villa development!

In the end however, the rain did not matter a jot and despite the nerves and anticipation on Saturday night, Siam Royal View was announced the clear winner.
