Properties in Pattaya that are going to be completed in 2015:
I’m sure I don’t have to explain to you how developments are built, sold and traded here in Pattaya. Thanks to the rise of pre-sold properties i.e where future tenants buy properties that have not been built yet to take advantage of the cheaper rates, developers are able to create huge projects knowing a big percentage of the property is sold, this allows for some risk management (and potentially more profits) which, of-course, developers love and have widely adapted this technique throughout Pattaya.

One of the most popular developments in Pattaya, The Palm was conceived and built by the NOVA luxury Group, meaning you can expect nothing but the best sin-city can offer. The project itself actually consists of 2 stunning hi rise towers, the tallest of them standing above the Pattaya skyline 46 floors up.
Why so many developers, agents and independents selling properties in Pattaya, sometimes it becomes a little bit difficult to try and find the best properties in Sin-city. It is also true that different people will certainly have different ideas of what makes the perfect condo, I mean, just check out this past article in which, thanks to a quick questions and answers session, we managed to find out many females out there consider the kitchens and the bathrooms as some of the most important factors that create the ideal home. Continue reading Best Penthouses in Pattaya: Northshore Beach Road
Even though not as well known as the properties we mention on our last post , this beautiful development still remains as one of the best hidden properties-gems in Pattaya city. Located right at the end of Naklua road means it provides the perfect escape for those people looking to feel like they are ‘away’ from the city (when in fact actually are just 5 minutes away from Sukunvit road). The Ananya is certainly something to see
Much like the Movenpick residence, you will also feel like you own the beach front. Thanks to the landscaping and land distribution around the property, people from the public can’t really access the beach, meaning it is all for the residents. The fact the pool is located right at the beach-front means residents have the option of relaxing by the poolside or adventure 6 meters further into the sandy beach.
One thing that should be mention is the quality of the beach, which is great for sunbathing and walking around, that said, when it comes to the pristine conditions of the water I couldn’t guarantee that the Naklua port and Laem-Chabang port (about 14km down the road) won’t have an effect on it. Apart from the sometimes murky waters, the view and great feeling you get from being able to see the huge expansions of the oceans every single time you peak out of the window are still guaranteed.
Some facilities and services you can expect at the Ananya Condominium Naklua:
Free wi-fi in all rooms
Kids pool and large beach-front pool with sunbathing deck
An amazing little boutique project (has a total of 37 exclusive rooms) is another great example of hi-end design right on the Naa Jomtien’s coast. Residents will have the option of walking right onto the beach (which will offer much cleaner waters than the Naklua area of Pattaya) from the main building.
Not only you have the proximity to the beach to consider, but thanks to it’s location at Naa jomtien soi 8, you also get to experience a very relaxed area of Pattaya. You will find yourself living both far enough from Pattaya to avoid the tourist masses yet close enough to easily access all the city’s facilities by a short 10 minute drive.
We have also featured this property on another one of our posts investigating some of the top kitchens and bathrooms available in Pattaya. If there’s one thing you can count on is the quality of the facilities and the design of the building, you will get a better sense of this once you visit the rooms at this property, the ceiling high glass windows that allow you to wonder at the immense beauty of the ocean is just the beginning of it.
Here’s a short list of the facilities and features of this property:
Rooftop area: Oversize infinity pool, sundeck, Jacuzzi and gym
Security: 24-hour manned & monitored (CCTV)
Wi-fi: Free throughout building
Unit entry door: Scorpion steel security door (2.2m tall by 1.2m wide)
Quick tips to make your new condo as efficient and green as possible
Following our latest post on how to increase your Air Conditioner’s efficiency to keep things green in Sin-City, we decided to follow it up by giving you some other quick things you can do, not only to reduce your impact on the environment, but also to make your condo much more cost effective.
Let’s get down to some tips shall we:
Change to LED lights
The amount of money and energy you can save by just using LEDs is truly impressive, not only are they efficient than normal fluorescent lamps, they last much much longer, are safer and cost almost next to nothing in yearly maintenance, and this is just to name a few of the advantages! You can see all these other advantages and some pretty impressive figures regardingLED efficiency.
There should be no excuse not to be changing all of your lights to LEDs, specially now a days when you can find a huge arrange designs. If you ever wanted to collaborate in an environmentally friendly way, but never quite exactly know how, well look no further than your own living room! Even in Pattaya there already are a few shops specializing in LED lighting and lamps, why not start asking around eh? Here, I have already searched Google for the phrase ‘led lamps Pattaya’ .
You can even get creative with it and explore the newer LED bulbs that can actually be connected to your mobile phone, hell, some of these models even come with a remote control so that you can use all it’s awesome capabilities (light intensity, amount of bulbs, color, etc.. and it will only get crazier!)
Get a TV stream box like the Roku Box
This option is not one that comes to people naturally, but have you ever wondered how much waste is created by your home entertainment system? We might not be able to do much about the electricity consumption, after all, I don’t think I’ll convince you to start listening to music quietly am I? Instead, let me introduce you to Roku Box, an amazing little box that is already changing the way people consume entertainment world wide.
Just think of how much less plastic you will consume when you stop buying DVDs and CD’s: All that extra plastic and materials used (all the fuel consumption making and transporting them) all of that will be gone the second you get a Roku box. All you need is a decent internet connection and you will be ready access some 2000+ channels and an infinity of content right from your living room.
You can also access radio shows directly with the Roku Box, add of of this to the possibility of hooking up a terabyte of storage and you will be creating the perfect entertainment library all within these devices, no extra waste nor equipment needed!
You can buy the latest model of this beautiful streaming box from their official website. Meanwhile let me show you some of the features that have made the Roku Box the most popular streaming station in the market (beating huge companies like Amazon and Google by the way)
Fast smooth streaming
Send music, picture and videos from you phone or tablet directly to your TV
2000+ channels in the US (this will depend on you country, but do expect to have access to thousands of options even within Thailand)
Headphones connection right on the remote control for personal listening (great for late night movie watching)
Properties with Private Access to the beach in Pattaya
First of all we do need to state clearly what a ‘private beach’ actually means in Pattaya since neither hotels nor condominiums are actually allowed to own the beach (as per our local government rules that is). What sets these few properties apart from the competition is the access they have to the beach. They might not own that particular piece of land, but the easy by which you can reach the beach directly from the property means there’s going to be very few people other than the residents who use this beach.
