It’s that time of the year again when organizations in various industries and countries decide on their highlights of the year. Their best employee, best achievement or department. At EasyHomes we look at our own market the Bangkok property market and look at the best condos and apartments in Bangkok for the year.
This year there have been some surprising results and some expected results. Among the highlights we will review are The Wind Asoke 23, Life@65 Ekamai, Siri@Sukhumvit in Thonglor, S and S condo and Villa Sathorn. These properties have all been stand-out performers in what is fast becoming a very competitive market with many excellent condos and apartments on the market.
Let’s start with The Wind Asoke 23 located in Asoke only 500m from both the MRT and BTS stations. A truly excellent location for an excellent building.
|A fantastic modern building built in a contemporary tropical style with 1 bedroom Bangkok condos to rent in Asoke, 2 bedroom condos and 3 bedroom condos for lease as well. With a infinity swimming pool, 24hr security, car parking, sun deck and fitness room this Bangkok condominium offers all the facilities associated with luxury condos in Bangkok. However the quality in The Wind 23 Asoke is of such high caliber that it stands out as true gem.
The Wind 23 condo has been a slow-burner in the Bangkok condominium market, but once it was discovered by the general market the reaction has been understandably positive. The location is ideal for those wanting to commute around Bangkok with access to both the MRT and BTS only 500m away.
|The second condo to look at is a previous favorite condo of ours, the forever popular Life@65 condo in Ekamai. If you are looking for a good quality, great value condo to rent on Sukhumvit then the Life@Sukhumvit 65 is ideal. With excellent views, a large roof-top swimming pool and great value condos for lease on Sukhumvit road. And only a 5 mins walk to both Ekamai BTS station and Phrakanong BTS station, Life@Sukhumvit 65 or Life@65 (as it is referred to by locals) this is an ideal condo to rent in Bangkok if you are a bachelor, bachelorette or a couple.
The next condo we will review is a total departure from Life@Sukhumvit 65, and rather than catering fort mid-range tenant looking to rent a condominium in Bangkok our next condo Siri@Sukhumvit located near Thonglor BTS station caters for the high-end market. Siri@Sukhumvit offers one bedroom condos, two bedroom condos and three bedroom condos for rent. And if you are looking to rent a condo near to Thonglor BTS station, this is hard to beat.
Siri@Sukhumvit offers a fantastic lobby and incredible facilities, with a huge gymnasium and fitness studio, and probably the best swimming pool in the Sukhumvit area. With so many great condominiums to rent in Sukhumvit then it is a compliment indeed that Siri@Sukhumvit is picked out as having the best or at least one of the best swimming pools in Bangkok.
|In keeping with its high-end market, Siri@Sukhumvit has great finishings and excellent style. A large building it looks and feels impressive the moment you enter Siri@Sukhumvit. So if you are looking to rent a condo or apartment in Thonglor and you have a good budget it is hard to look beyond Siri@Sukumvit.
This year 2011, was the year that the BTS received its first major extension since its inauguration in 1999. Yes we know that it added two more stops in Krungthonburi BTS station and Wong Wien Yai BTS station 2 years ago, and more about them in a while, but with the extension of the BTS from On Nut BTS station to Bearing BTS station this has been a significant increase opening up the east side of Bangkok’s city center. And with the advent of these stations has come a large amount of condo and apartment development from low-rises to high-rises the landscape on the east side of Bangkok’s city center has altered considerably.
However there has been one condo that has caught our attention more than others and one that has shown that just because it is built in a less established and fashionable part of town, it does not have to be of lower quality. In fact S and S condominium, or S&S condominium, or S & S condominium – depending on how you spell it, is of better quality and style than many condos seen in mid-Sukhumvit, Sathorn or Silom.
|S & S condominium is set on a large piece of land and takes advantage of that by offering a large swimming pool and a large garden area including a children’s play ground. For those looking to rent a condo in Udomsuk or Punniwithee near the BTS stations. S & S condo houses Studios, one bedroom and two bedroom condos and the value is very high given the location of the condominium. S&S condo is located near to the shopping area featuring international restaurants and international supermarkets. If you are looking to rent a condo on the new BTS extension then renting a condo in S&S condo would be a good choice.
|Finally looking at renting a condo in Sathorn area we review Villa Sathorn which is located only 50m from Krungthonburi BTS station. Villa Sathornhouses Studios, one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom units, so caters for most of the market.
With fantastic views and with river views Villa Sathorn is a great place to rent a condo in Bangkok.
