Growing in popularity, hotel-branded residences can offer investment potential for buyers and added value to the surrounding community.

Checking out of a five-star hotel is never easy: it’s hard to say goodbye to the swish amenities; pristine suites; and your-wish-is-my-demand service. However, with more and more luxury hotels now offering private residences, some guests never have to go through the dreaded check-out process again and instead, can call the hotel—and all of its lavish trappings—their home.

With work-from-home likely to continue, demand for resort-style residences with plentiful facilities and multi-functional space is growing in Thailand.
And some, such as branded residences and resort-style properties, have even managed to thrive amidst the turmoil.

Thailand, in particular, has witnessed a surge in development, especially of urban resort-style properties that often bear the branding of global hospitality titans.

Indeed, the current environment looks set to bring both operational and design challenges—but also plenty of opportunities—as the balance of private-to-shared space in residences is reconsidered.

Flexibility is expected to be paramount, with space that can be configured as an additional bedroom, study or home gym becoming increasingly important to homeowners, in addition to a greater desire for private outdoor spaces.

One thing that is impactful from the pandemic is the work-from-home ethos, with branded properties increasingly attractive given their scale of facilities and onsite services that lend themselves to this opportunity going forward

Trends in real estate indicate that buyers are pushing to fulfil more of their life’s needs through their home purchase. What once used to be more basic structures providing shelter, homes are now expected to provide a sense of community, facilities, convenience, and even prestige. These components have become increasingly important to new buyers who are more focused on the lifestyle offering. It makes sense that over the years the tide has shifted in favour of community-based living; with open, bright spaces and easy access to a wide range of services such as schools, parks and restaurants. Studies have shown that our level of happiness is increased when we are closer to other people.
