Why Ko Samui Villa properties are a great investment for 2016
Improvements in air traffic volumes set to lift demand in 2016
Fresh increases in traffic have been brought about by the Thailand’s Civil Aviation Department increasing flight capacity of Samui Airport from 36 to 50 flights per day. And industry analysts are viewing this as a catalyst for fresh growth in the Ko Samui villa properties market.
Property services firm JLL Thailand give support and have determined that now in 2015 there are five airlines with direct flights to Samui, predominately arriving from regional hubs like Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
Majorly the resort destinations in Surat Thani province within the the Gulf of Thailand, as implied by JLL will bring more tourist traffic after the political instability during 2014 becomes a more distant memory.
“Increasing air capacity will improve connectivity and strengthen Samui’s position as one of Thailand’s prominent tourist destinations,” said Andrew Langdon, executive vice president of the Hotels and Hospitality Group at JLL. “This is good news for hotels on the island as we expect an improvement in tourist demand and hence hotel occupancies.”
With Samui’s hotel market thriving – by 2018 an additional 680 branded hotel rooms will be added to the existing supply, per JLL estimates – demand for residential villa properties on the island will only increase.
High-end residential developments of Ko Samui villa properties are showing signs of increase in demand from expatriates looking to cash in before increases in price levels.
