Imagine swimming alongside a tiger shark while on holiday in Pattaya. A terrifying thought? Think again. Pattaya’s most luxurious new condominium and hotel project, the Centara Grand Residence at Na Jomtien has unveiled a unique new landscaping design that will incorporate a water park, wave pool and lazy river that includes a swim through a massive glass shark tank. The tiger shark tank will also include a viewing platform for visitors outside the water.
A tropical canopy-walk style landscaping will surround the 3 tower project and will be undertaken by the same team responsible for the hugely successful Centara Mirage Resort hotel water park in north Pattaya.
The mixed-use Centara Grand Residence will feature 315 residential units and a 200 room hotel managed by Centara Hotels & Resorts.
Due to be completed within three years, the project will cover 20 rai and will have 150 meters beach frontage along with 20,000 square meters of landscaping and public areas.
The stunning project was originally designed by renowned architect Hans Brouwer of HB Design and is now being overseen by leading Thai architect Songsak Visudharomn.
Thai and foreign buyers have been quick to move on what’s been described as the most exclusive project ever undertaken in the resort city. Launched in February 2012, the project’s Tower 1 is already 60% sold with a sales value of 1.4 Billion Baht.
Tower 2 will be officially launched on May 10 at the Siam Paragon Luxury Property Expo in Bangkok and sales are expected to be brisk.
The project is being undertaken by the Tulip Group, the name behind several luxury developments in Pattaya.
”This exclusive condominium project sets a new standard for residential living in Pattaya,” says Tulip Group CEO Kobi Elbaz. “We believe it is set to become the condominium of choice for a private, secluded resort style lifestyle”.
Mr Elbaz says the Centara Grand Residence is meeting the increased demand for higher quality in Pattaya.
“Pattaya is ready for this type of high-end project”, he said. “Our sales demonstrate that people are now looking for luxury in Pattaya. The association with a well known name in Thailand, Centara, also adds to people’s confidence in the project.”
The Tulip Group is also the name behind the Centara Avenue Residence & Suites in the heart of the resort city. This low rise hotel and condominium complex comprises 300 units, also to be managed by Centara Hotels
