: Sai Rung (rainbow in Thai) is a large 33 rai private estate of land for sale in a magnificent natural area of the east coast of Phuket, called Cape Yamu.
The last area of beautiful unspoilt natural jungle and sea views overlooking the East Coast of Phuket.
On an island boasting some of the region’s most extravagant private residences, this exclusive headland is home to a community of grand yet elegant villas.
Since its inception by architect Jean-Michel Gathy and acclaimed designer Philippe Starck, Cape Yamu has striven to create a tropical haven.
It’s easy to see why this tranquil peninsula on the east coast of Phuket was chosen; the views of the extraordinary seascape that is Phang Nga Bay, together with direct private beach access, make this a truly remarkable setting.
Sai Rung is a complete estate with a natural lake set in the middle of the property, while also being only a few minutes walk from the beautiful unspoilt Cape Yamu coastline.
The site also enjoys stunning views of both bays whilst also having amazing jungle views all the while being surrounded by old natural forest of Papaya, Banyan and Durian trees.
A drive along the waterfront with superb Phang Nga views brings you to a private driveway meandering up through a plantation to the start of the estate which stretches out left and up a hill with amazing North-easterly valley views and to the right along the ridge line.
The boundary flirts with the top of the ridge and runs down through the valley towards the ocean with tranquil blue views towards Phuket Town.
The bottom of the site cuts across the private lake which is mostly on the property, including a stunning massive Banyan Tree which would house a magnificent sala underneath.
Sai Rung enjoys an established large orchard near the saddle with 100 yr old durian trees, mangoes, bananas, papayas, Thai herbs and trees that are blessed with leaves that make Thai curries what they are.
A natural waterway runs through to the valley floor and provides much of the fertility. The property is one of few untouched jungles in Phuket which stretches across the whole property (no commercial trees on the property) and has fabulous valley and water views.
A private estate of magnitude
It is expected that the new owner enjoys the natural landscape and is keen to minimize the footprint we leave on the land, enjoying its natural boundaries; its established orchard with 100 ft Durian trees; the private lake which is planned to be raised by 1.5m easily creating a perfect water feature; the natural bird life that enjoys the sanctuary and her natural tranquility.
A new custodian is sought that thinks preservation, conservation and an educated approach to enjoying and sharing nature is paramount.
OR Jungle Lodge Retreat
It would be a fun/organic/eco style/natural estate and conservation of the natural site will be paramount. Estimated build costs for the bungalows will be around US$200,000
OR Spa Retreat
Low density Corporate retreat, Spiritual place
Spa centre, overnight and day guests.
Truly a remarkable plot of land that deserves to be considered.
: Such exclusivity need not be remote; Cape Yamu is within thirty-minutes drive of all the Island’s golf courses, marinas, shopping centres, restaurants and nightlife.
All of the Islands of Phang Nga are accessible by dinghy or speed boat near the property boundary.
