Letting Someone Else Do the Work

For those looking at branded hotel managed products as a property buy need to weigh the relative merits of a shorter return on investment scenario with ongoing rental returns. Additional benefits include owners usage for a period of time each year in a luxury resort where instead of having to venture outside your room in search of service, it comes directly to you in our own villa.

Anticipated rental yields currently quoted in the Phuket market average 6-8% per annum. A resale market does exist for this type of product and while the mixed use trend is still in its infancy, capital appreciation has been significant when looking at comparable transactions over the past few years.

That said this type of investment does not suit every buyer. Those seeking retirement homes or longer stays are often put off by mandatory operating of the villa by the hotel. Lifestyle property does offer hassle free quality management by upper scale hotel chains and return potential is most often enhanced through the worldwide sales and marketing networks.

As in any luxury purchase it’s the brand promise, affinity of the buyer to that and many buyers simply adding this to a long line of financial rewards. Luxury continues to become a force worth reckoning in today’s frill filled world and there is a capital market out there seeking exactly what the Shangri La Phuket is offering.
