18/May/12 Asia Pacific Property Awards - 2012 - PIMALAI scoops Award BEST HOTEL ARCHITECTURE FOR Thailand
Hundres of prominent property professionals gathered at the end of April, at J.W Marriot, Kuala Lumpur, for the announcement of the winners of the hotly contested Asia Pacific Property Awards. These awards are in association with Bloomberg Television and Google and form part of the International Property Awards. Established 17 years ago, they are the world's most prestigious property competition, covering residential as well as commercial categories. Each year they set out to identify the very best real estate professionals around the globe. This is carried out through a meticulous process involving a judging panel of over 50 experts chaired by Lord Bates of Langbaurgh and covering every aspect of the property business such as development, architecture, interior design and marketing. We are pleased that we were recently recognized as Asia Pacific Award property awards as the recipient of Best Hotel Architecture award for Thailand. The next stage is for the top-scoring winners from each category of the Asia Pacific Property Awards to literally take on the world by competing against other high scoring companies from Europe, Africa, the Americas and Arabia. The ultimate World's Best in each category will be unveiled when the final results are proclaimed at London's Savoy Hotel on December 12th. Perhaps it may be worthwhile to highlight the fact that from the conception of the entire resort at Pimalai, including its layout, the materials used and those involved in its construction virtually everything utilized Thai expertise and Thai craftsmanship. The architect involved in the resort layout was Habita Architects from Bangkok. The interior design was handled by P49 Design and the entire landscape by Inside out, both companies from Bangkok. Finally the entire project was built under the supervision of Mr. Chakorn Niyomson, an architect who was also behind the design of the Spa. PIMALAI has for long been highly regarded as being one of the top ten resorts in Southern Thailand and is also very high respected as a model of development when it comes to environmental concerns and all the owners & management are very proud to have received such a distinction.
