Anyone who has visited Chiang Mai will know that the city is almost entirely low-rise, with very few buildings taller than seven or eight floors. Any building taller than this tends to be either luxury hotels or older residential buildings where the apartments are usually in dire need of refurbishment. So anyone looking for luxurious high-rise living in the city has very few options.
Very few options, that is, apart from the Presidential Suites at The Shine Condominium – truly the only option for anyone looking for the ultimate in high-rise living that Chiang Mai has to offer.
With its 15-floors, The Shine Condominium towers above most of the other buildings in the immediate neighbourhood. The Presidential Suites at The Shine are all penthouse duplexes, which comprise the 14th and 15th floors of the building. This ensures that each of the Presidential Suites offers the best views that it is currently possible to buy in Chiang Mai today, with views over the city’s historic centre towards the Doi Suthep-Pui mountain to the west, or over the River Ping to the east.
In terms of location, The Shine Condominium’s is hard to beat. Located close to the five-star Le Meridien Hotel and Chiang Mai’s famous Night Market and Walking Street, the historic city centre is just 500m from here. Chiang Mai International Airport is less than 15 minutes away, so it is also a perfect location for anyone who regularly flies into and out of the city.
Fully completed before the end of 2013, the Presidential Suites at The Shine are ready for you to take immediate possession of. So exclusive are the Presidential Suites here that only six are available – four one-bedroom apartments and just a pair of two-bedroom apartments. The suites are huge duplexes, with the living space on the lower levels and bedrooms on the upper. With even the smallest of the Suites spread over 135m2 of wide, open space, the Presidential Suites are well-named, as they offer accommodation that even a President would be impressed by! All suites are supplied on a fully furnished basis, with no expense spared to ensure that the fittings are as of the same luxurious quality as the suites themselves. The flooring is 100% teak throughout, with appliances from brands such as Smeg and Sony. The bathroom fittings are from Grohe and Toto, with each Suite featuring a huge jacuzzi. All of the furniture has been custom-designed for the suites.
All of the facilities at The Shine are as luxurious as the interiors of the Presidential Suites. There is ample parking available, as the lowest four floors of the building is all multistory parking. Most of the facilities here are located on the sixth floor, including the fully-equipped fitness centre, large swimming pool plus saunas and spa centre. The part of the 14th floor not taken up by the lower levels of the Suites belong to the project’s beautiful roof gardens, which share the same incredible views as from the Suites themselves.
With high-rise, super-luxury, modern penthouses almost impossible to find in Chiang Mai any longer, the prices for the Presidential Suites at The Shine Condominium can only increase over time. In addition, with so little competition at the very top end of the market, there is sure to be high rental demand for these exclusive units as well, meaning that buying here is an excellent long-term investment opportunity.
