Development Opportunities for Koh Samui Land for Sale
While there are plenty of amazing detached houses for sale and villas for sale in Koh Samui, some private investors and development companies are on the lookout for prime Koh Samui land for sale instead. What’s immediately tantalizing about plots on the island is that being surrounded by the blue-turquoise waters of the Gulf of Thailand means there’s plenty of land for sale promising breathtaking sea views. Those seeking land with a glimpse of white sands, greenery and blue waters are in luck as there are many different sizes and aspects when it comes to land for sale on Koh Samui.
From a single rai up to larger plots, there’s land available right next to the beachfront as well as higher up with panoramic views from the cliffs. In any case, the settings are usually stunning, the vistas are amazing and the locations are often close to tourist hotspots such as Chaweng and Bophut as well as Fisherman’s Village. Of course, proximity to the airport could be advantageous, while any developer will want a full account of road access as well as how to get to the beach. Other details that are essential to know about are whether land is hooked up for electricity and also water supplies.
In other parts of Thailand land is often sold for agricultural purposes or perhaps for a manufacturing site to be built, once all environmental assessments have been carried out. On Koh Samui, coastal lands are usually purchased for private homes, vacation rental villas or sometimes a resort with bungalows, for example.
The advantage of designing your own property is that you can ensure that all specifications meet your requirements, that the land is the right size to fit purpose and is suitable for such a build. Often, the choice of purchasing land is a price point too. Some of Samui’s swanky villas attract well-deserved higher price tags, although still extremely competitive compared to say other equally beautiful locations. Buying land and developing your own property can still work out to be the least expensive option.
Of course, it may be that a developer wants to create a totally extravagant property and needs a suitable plot to bring this vision to life. As Koh Samui attracts many discerning holidaymakers looking for luxury this is definitely a huge market that creates many opportunities for those with the right eye for developing prime beachfront land.
