Royal Phuket Marina (RPM) is strategically located along the centre of Phuket's eastern seaboard, on the doorstep of Thailand's famous Phang Nga Bay. The marina is Thailand's first world-class ‘luxury lifestyle marina’ and has been developed over 30 hectares (190 rai) of prime land, right next to Phuket Boat Lagoon in Koh Kaew.
With 350 berths for yachts of up to 35 metres long and 400 luxury waterfront villas, penthouses and condominiums, the marina ranks among Asia's premier boating hubs.
It is Asia's most sophisticated and high-tech yachting infrastructure and the island's only marina with a boat lock, non-tidal deepwater basin and private moorings on the doorstep of residences.
Royal Phuket Marina Facilities
In what is completely new lifestyle concept in Phuket, more than half of the Royal Phuket Marina development is devoted to leisure and shopping facilities set amidst landscaped parks and gardens. The most prominent resort facilities include:
- The Fisherman's Wharf-style waterfront promenade, which is over 8 metres wide and over 250 metres long will feature up market restaurants, bars, boutiques, gourmet supermarket and specialty stores, SKIPPERS Sportsbar, Les Anges Boutique Bakery, Pearl Spa & Beauty, Kai Tak Interiors & Furnishings
- A 5 star hotel, swimming pools, tennis courts and RPM Health & Fitness.
- Exclusive private beach club on a nearby tropical island, linked by speedboat shuttle.
Aquaminium - Rising from the Water
The world's first condominium to feature a private berth within the residence itself.
The property comprises three buildings and offers investors varying unit types including triplex and duplex penthouses, and two and four bedroom condominiums, and offers one of the world's most unique investment opportunities.
Royal Phuket Marina’s Royal Villas
The five Royal Villas, the most prestigious homes available in the Royal Phuket Marina, open onto sweeping views of the Mediterranean-style marina with its profusion of luxury yachts and boardwalks.
These grand residences which have been designed in classic Thai style, blend seamlessly with the resort-inspired surroundings of the marina. Expansive outdoor terraces come with a private swimming pool with built-in Jacuzzi at one end and at the other a traditional Thai-style sala which overlooks the private boat berth. You can simply walk from your home directly to your boat parked at your doorstep.
