JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group has been appointed to offer Royal Phuket Marina for sale.

Following serious interest from an international buyer, Royal Phuket Marina Chairman, Gulu Lalvani, has decided to officially put the development on the market. As exclusive advisor, JLL will handle the sale through an expression of interest campaign closing September 2016, said a press release issued today (July 7).

“Royal Phuket Marina is my passion and since opening over 10 years ago I have worked tirelessly to promote yachting in Thailand and make Royal Phuket Marina a leading waterfront destination in the region. With still so much untapped potential, I am keen to find a buyer who can take Royal Phuket Marina to the next level and realise my dream of making this property a world-class integrated lifestyle destination,” said Mr Lalvani.

Aaron Desange, Executive Vice President, Investment Sales Asia, said, “The property offers a number of value enhancement opportunities including the development of hotels, additional residential and entertainment facilities including a proposed world-class water park. The offering also has the potential for Board of Investment (BOI) privilege allowing for 100 percent foreign ownership.”

With a total land area of approximately 200 rai (320,000 square metres), just one third has been developed so far. An ambitious and innovative Master Plan has been created that would create one of the most desirable resort destinations in Thailand, noted the press release.

“We have worked with a leading international architect to prepare a Master Plan that shows the huge potential of Royal Phuket Marina. Established on the sound fundamentals of Phuket's tourism industry, the Master Plan offers interested buyers an option in how they can develop and enhance the current Royal Phuket Marina offering to become a world-class lifestyle destination for families,” added Mr. Lalvani.

“Nothing has changed on-the-ground and it remains business as usual at Royal Phuket Marina for all our team, residents, clients and stakeholders.”

Mike Batchelor, Managing Director, Investment Sales Asia commented: “The Phuket hospitality market continues to be a focus of investors globally and we are anticipating very strong interest in this asset, particularly given the significant future development angle that it offers. Rarely does such a large land holding with extensive master planning and existing infrastructure come to market in such a prominent location and sought after investment destination.”

Sorry, but after all that effort, why sell if it was a going concern? It has to be very limited in it's potential to expand to provide the returns as a marina development, doesn't appear to have the scope geographically, it's actually a miracle you can get any considerable sized yachts in there at all and then they become stuck due to the tide, great for 1000 speedboats though!
