After working 15 years as the HR Manager for the Dusit Thani Hotel she had “had enough” and yearned to have her own business. She resigned from the Dusit and through self-study learned the construction business.
Khun Waa believed in the potential of Hua Hin. She saw the ongoing city development, knew that it was a safe town, liked that it was not far from Bangkok, enjoyed a low cost of living and had natural attractions such as nice beaches and caves, but most importantly, this was the King’s town.
Khun Waa already had experience in art, interior design and landscaping so she searched out experts in construction and set about learning what she didn’t know.
Eleven years ago, in 2004, she started her first housing development called Mon Hua Hin Villa which was located on Soi 6. Recognizing that developing was her true calling she re-branded the project naming it Hua Hin Hillside Hamlet 1 and sold it out in short order.
Khun Waa, or as she is affectionately known by her buyers as “Khun Wow” has built a total of 155 houses, selling out Hua Hin Hillside Hamlet two, three, four and five. She is now starting on her newest project Hillside Hamlet 6. The new project is next door to HH 5 and combined will have a total of 42 homes. Communal amenities include a fitness room, pool table, a 1,600 square meter green area, underground utilities, high speed fiber optic internet and a shuttle bus service running to and from town, which is a great feature for those looking to rent out their houses when they aren’t being used.
When asked why she has been so successful while other developers struggle she says “I think the first reason is the quality of the houses we build and the top rated construction materials we use. Another reason for our success is the high level of service we give our buyers which starts at the pre-sale process and continues straight on thru to completion and handover. I alone am responsible for construction and persistently check on every stage. Finally, I think the reason we’ve been so successful is that I negotiate with suppliers to keep our homes reasonably priced”.
Hillside Hamlet Six will offer four house styles which all come fully furnished and landscaped; The Superior Thai Bali is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with 450 square meters of living space on a generous 672 meter land plot. The home comes with a designer kitchen, covered car parking with an electric gate, a storage room, and a 30 sqm swimming pool. In the living/dining room the ceilings are over 4m high.
Their Premium Thai Bali offers everything the Superior does but with more living space, 545 square meters and a larger pool, over 40 square meters. The Luxury Thai Bali is bigger still with 566 square meters of living space on bigger land plots, anywhere from 763 to 948 square meters. This home has 3 bedrooms all en-suite, covered parking for two cars with an electric gate and an extra-large covered terrace.
Their Executive Thai Bali home is their biggest and most prestigious with a total living area of 700 square meters on a land plot ranging in size from 927 to 1,226 square meters. This home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a swimming pool almost 50 square meters in size and a 12 sqm multi-functional Thai style pool pavilion.
Again according to Khun Waa, “for every new project we start I always upgrade from the previous one. As an example, our newest project will benefit from re-styled kitchens and bathrooms and we are using a higher grade of kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures and fittings”.
