Despite being 14,000km apart, the destiny of two serene seafront destinations on opposite sides of the world share amazing similarities.
The Hamptons, a cluster of communities stretching along the coast of Long Island, just over two hours’ drive from New York City, has become one of the most prestigious places to live in the US. With its multi-million-dollar mansions, this exclusive area is the investment of choice of A-listers and top executives seeking private time with their families.
Here in Thailand, Hua Hin has developed into one of the country’s most attractive seaside locations, just two and half hours’ drive from Bangkok,
Today, average house prices in The Hamptons are in excess of US$2.5 million. While not yet reaching these peaks, Hua Hin is now gearing up for its own real estate boom. As more and more affluent Thai residents seek a healthy active lifestyle outside the city, sales of luxury residences in Hua Hin are starting to soar.
Banyan Hua Hin, the area’s most upmarket residential community with villas ranging from THB20 million (US$600,000) to more than THB100 million (US$3 million), is nestled between the mountains and the sea, adjacent to the world-renowned Banyan Golf Club. Strong sales in 2021 were driven by urban buyers – Thai nationals and local expats who want to reset their lifestyles and have recently rediscovered Hua Hin.
“Just as the USA boomed in the 20th century, the 21st century belongs to Asia. Just imagine having the foresight to invest in The Hamptons when its stock was rising; this is the potential that Hua Hin holds today. This dreamy destination meets the lifestyle needs of Thai and international investors, now and in the future.”
Like The Hamptons, which is home to three of USA’s highest ranked country clubs, golfers in Hua Hin can tee off at a choice of PGA courses. They include the award-winning Banyan Golf Club, which has been recognised as one of ‘The Rolex World’s Top 1000 Golf Courses.’
Hua Hin is also home to many history-rich attractions. These include McFarland House, the classical two-storey Thai pavilion at Hyatt Regency Hua Hin which was built in the 19th century for Dr. George Bradley McFarland, who published the most comprehensive Thai-English dictionary in 1939, and Laksasubha Hua Hin, a beautiful beachside retreat which has been converted from the owner’s original family home and is now surrounded by lush, landscaped gardens.
A creative vibe is generated through local artists and handicraft markets, while a choice of international schools, medical centres and health facilities such as Chiva-Som, the noted wellness resort, Banyan’s Be Well Clinic, and other attractions combine to create a 360-degree destination for couples, families and retirees.
