Bangkok is a favourite holiday location for Hongkongers. More luxury properties are in the heart of the city. The developers are aware that the point of luxurious inner-city living is to be close to the action, while feeling far removed from it.

The Residences at The St Regis Bangkok, developed by Minor International and Starwood Hotels & Resorts, is the brand's first property in Thailand. It comprises 53 exclusive private residences along Rajadamri Road, close to the entertainment and business districts.

Buyers can choose from duplex penthouses with private pools, or three- and four-bedroom St Regis-branded homes. The property also offers a butler service.

Elsewhere, The Sukhothai Residences on Sathorn Road, in the heart of Bangkok's central business district, are due for completion this year. This new luxury condominium development, set on freehold land behind the famous Sukhothai Hotel, has 196 units featuring private lift lobbies. The facilities include a lounge area, lap pool, children's pool, gymnasium and tennis court.
