Introducing a brand new exciting concept in retirement – Otium Phuket
Pioneering operators Otium are building Thailand’s first luxury retirement village on the exotic island of Phuket – for people who don’t want to grow old.
The development, which covers 20 acres and is due for completion in 2022, is set to redefine retirement living.
Whether you are a British expat who doesn’t want to come home or simply looking to move somewhere new Otium is creating a concept that is about fulfilment and excitement set amid Phuket’s lush mountain forest and stunning beach on the West Coast.
The unique community of apartments and villas sits within the 5 star MontAzure development which fringes the white sands of Kamala beach.
We are not property developers but lifestyle developers
British architects Michaelis Boyd have teamed influences of its fashionable country club Soho Farmhouse in the Cotswolds with modern Thai designs to present a concept design that is a stylish coastal estate that blends effortlessly with the natural surroundings.
At the heart of Otium Phuket is the Otium Club. Convenience is the theme here. Whether you are meeting a friend for a coffee at the café and deli or dropping in at the NICHE Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre you can expecta prevailing sense of calmness.
It’s also the perfect spot for absorbing the landscape at outdoor yoga.
The facilities on your doorstep will include a gym, a library and games room, spa with steam room and sauna, swimming pools, private cinema, outdoor amphitheatre, art studio, and landscaped gardens.
There will also be free daily shuttles to the local shops and an Otium buggy service for access to Montazure’s hotels and restaurants.
Otium Phuket is designed for the over 50s, with 26 pavilion-style villas with vaulted ceilings, and 126 spacious apartments measuring from 106sq m for a one bed.
Properties are being sold on 30-year renewable leases, priced from £420,000 rising to £2million for a five-bedroom hilltop villa.
But you can also rent a home too.
“We are not property developers but lifestyle developers,” declares Daniel Holmes, Otium’s British chief executive.
“This is the first retirement village of its kind in South East Asia, and we are planning to build two more in Thailand and the region.”
Discretion is key. Otium’s care staff are there when you need them and will also be happy to visit you in your own home to help with anything from general housekeeping and shopping, to support with getting dressed.
There will also be a 24-hour first-response emergency suite in the village for regular care, medical treatment and help with prescriptions.
