Many peo­ple look for a lux­ury res­i­dence that’s lo­cated amid the hustle and bus­tle but of­fers an oa­sis of calm when you step in­side. And that’s ex­actly what Thai­land’s lead­ing property de­vel­oper San­siri has been de­liv­er­ing for the past 33 years with its more than 300 projects across the coun­try.

One of its projects in Bangkok, The XXXIX by San­siri, was sold out at the end of 2012, well be­fore it was com­pleted in 2016. This strik­ing 32-storey tower has 178 apart­ments rang­ing in size from 538sqft to 3,476sqft. All of them have a 2.9m-high ceil­ing and in­te­ri­ors crafted with eight types of mar­ble.

It’s lo­cated in a vi­brant ex­pat com­mu­nity at Sukhumvit Soi 39, sur­rounded by high-end shop­ping des­ti­na­tions such as The Emquartier and The Em­po­rium. Ameni­ties for res­i­dents and guests in­clude a leisure ac­tiv­ity floor with an in­fin­ity pool and a welle­quipped busi­ness cen­tre. It’s much like a lux­ury ho­tel, but this is home.

Another gem by San­siri, 98 Wire­less, will be com­pleted in March 2017. Lo­cated on a tree-lined boule­vard close to both Lumpini Park and ma­jor shop­ping precincts, the 25-storey high-rise con­sists of 77 lux­u­ri­ous units that in­clude two- to three­bed­room res­i­dences, pent­houses and The One, a two-level “su­per pent­house.”

The units range from 1,288 to 10,204sqft for the su­per pent­house and are fin­ished with solid white-oak her­ring­bone floor­ing, rare crotch ma­hogany door pan­els from the United States, weath­ered Por­tuguese Moleanos lime­stone and hand-picked stat­u­ario mar­ble from Italy. They come with top-notch ap­pli­ances from the likes of Sub-zero and Gagge­nau.

This at­ten­tion to de­tail con­tin­ues in the el­e­gant tea sa­lon and busi­ness cen­tre, which fea­ture Ralph Lau­ren Home fur­nish­ings styled by well-known New York in­te­rior de­signer Anne Car­son. Res­i­dents are well looked af­ter by ded­i­cated but­lers, a Bent­ley limou­sine ser­vice and lux­ury concierge firm Quintessen­tially.

And San­siri’s port­fo­lio con­tin­ues to grow, with two more projects due to be com­pleted by 2020 in the up­mar­ket dis­trict of Thong Lo.

One of them is The Mon­u­ment Thong Lo on Sukhumvit 55, a col­lab­o­ra­tion with public trans­port op­er­a­tor BTS. The 46-storey block will be keenly sought af­ter for its lush gar­dens fea­tur­ing ma­ture trees, apart­ments that range from 1,337 to 7,125sqft and come with 3.3m-high ceil­ings, and a unique swim­ming pool.

The other is Khun by Yoo in­spired by Starck, which will be San­siri’s first branded res­i­dence, bear­ing the name of leg­endary French de­signer Philippe Starck and the stu­dio he co-founded. Ex­pect his whim­si­cal, in­no­va­tive in­te­rior de­sign through­out the 27-storey, 148-unit build­ing, such as cop­per and sparkling crys­tal jux­ta­posed with raw con­crete for a mod­ern, edgy look. The project’s smart de­sign will en­sure pic­turesque city or green views from all units, which will start from 446sqft and go up to 3,258sqft. Fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a 30m in­fin­ity swim­ming pool with a glass-pan­elled gym above it and a sky gar­den with a panoramic view of Bangkok.

San­siri’s premium prop­er­ties also make good in­vest­ments. Units in The XXXIX by San­siri, for ex­am­ple, have gone up in value by 30 to 42 per cent since they hit the mar­ket in 2012. These are beau­ti­ful res­i­dences that will stand the test of time.
