Arcadia set to reach great Heights
In mid-December the prominent Pattaya property development company Heights Holdings held a lavish opening party to promote their latest, and, arguably, most ambitious local project: Arcadia.
As always with these events, especially when it comes to the opening of the showroom, the turnout from the Pattaya-based interested parties was great and, as always, Heights Holdings provided an excellent selection of food and beverages for their visitors.
Fully known as the Arcadia Beach Resort, Pattaya, this will be the 16th development under the Heights Holdings brand name. Situated just off Thappraya Road, Soi 9, in South Pattaya, Arcadia will be a serviced resort featuring a fully managed beach club as well as a raft of pool and recreational facilities within what will be a luxurious gated complex.
According to the company, Pattaya’s Arcadia Beach Resort is intended to be the first development of many across Asia and will set the standard for luxurious, holiday living in a prime inner-city location.
It will be the largest inner-city resort development in the city with four eight-storey resort condominium buildings stretching across 17,600 square metres. Over 65 per cent of this area will be dedicated to recreational purposes.
Although precise numbers are not yet finalised, there will be approximately 800 units in the development, an average of 200 per building.
Its location means it will be within walking distance of some of the city’s best restaurants and just five minutes from Walking Street. Nearby shopping, easy access to Buddha Hill, the Fitness Park, and Jomtien beaches means Arcadia is in a very good location.
Parking will be underground and within the complex will be a 300-square-metre supermarket as well as other shops and boutiques and commercial services.
Two swimming pools will be built on two levels and will be landscaped in a way to provide privacy and seclusion. They will include Jacuzzis and submerged sunbeds to give a more unique feel. Three large pool bars will offer owners and guest refreshments around and in the pool. In keeping with the resort theme, overhanging sun decks will give spectacular views over Arcadia.
Internally, there will be a large, fully-equipped gym and fitness centre with top-notch equipment. Along the same lines, health and fitness, there will be a first-class spa and massage facilities along with a managed steam room and dry sauna with hot and cold Jacuzzis.
In the food stakes, Arcadia will boast a terraced, air-conditioned restaurant serving Thai and International cuisine – for breakfast, lunch or dinner, while a sunset rooftop bar and club could well be the perfect place to start an evening before heading out on the town.
Arcadia is expected to begin construction in January 2015 with aimed-for completion by December 2016.
