Phuket Property in Kathu – Resorts, Apartments and Condos

Phuket Property in Kathu – Overview

Phuket property in Kathu was initially built around the now obsolete tin mining industry.

In it's heyday, Kathu was a bustling commercial centre, and while it's still the district capital for the Kathu region, Kathu is now dwarfed in size (population) and popularity by its younger sibling, Patong Beach, situated just over Buddha Hill.

Bang Wad Dam Kathu Today, Kathu is mainly a residential and commercial centre for nearby Patong, although it also sports the Loch Palm and the Phuket Country Golf Clubs.

In relation to the popular resort areas, Kathu properties are relatively cheap and as land is still available, villas and bungalows seem to be the order of the day.

The infrastructure is also developing fast.

Kathu covers a large geographic area, but the uninspiring main street in the town itself is narrow and a traffic nightmare during peak periods.

Phuket Property in Kathu – Lower Budget

Some people buy and rent in Kathu because of it's central location and cheaper prices. For example, it's possible to buy a really nice house with all the mod-cons for around 5 million Baht as long as you're not bothered about a view.

Golden Ville Apartments, Kathu You can then rent that house for 12,000 - 15,000 Baht a month on a long term basis, and if you choose to live in it, you're never more than 20 minutes from just about everything.

If a house is not your style and you prefer to have a view, then The Heritage Suites is a luxury condominium development comprising 67, one and 2-bedroom units housed in two 7-storey Sino-Portuguese style buildings.

The development takes advantage of the oasis of green hills between Phuket Town and Patong, so some of the units have pretty good views.

All units have en-suite bathrooms throughout, open-plan living areas and a guest toilet.

They are priced (December 2007), from 3.3 – 9.8 million Baht.

It's a mature estate and one of the most desirable locations in the east of Kathu.
