Ideally located in the city’s Kathu District between Patong Beach and the historic Old Town, the low-rise condominium will comprise 617 units across three eight-storey buildings as well as a clubhouse and seven retail shops with completion scheduled for Q3 2025. Prices for the freehold Studio Suite (25 sq.m), Leisure Suites (28 sq.m), 1-Bedroom Living Suites (28 sq.m), 1-Bedroom Plus Master Suite (34 sq.m) and two-bedroom Ocean Suite (47 sq.m), start from HKD 490,000 (THB 2.2 million) with an estimated gross rental yield of up to 8% per annum. State-of-the-art facilities on The Origin Kathu – Patong’s 6-2-84 rais of land (or 10,736 sq.m) will include a lobby, co-working space, fitness centre, swimming pool, pool access room, rooftop garden and laundry room. An on-site car park will also offer parking for 42% of units.
The Origin Kathu – Patong’s central location allows for easy access to a wide range of activities, schools, services, shopping and entertainment. Besides Patong with its famed crescent beach and nightlife scene 10 minutes to the west and Phuket Old Town with its rich arts, culture and dining offerings 10 minutes the east, it is within a few kilometres of Phuket’s largest mall, Central Phuket, and its newest and largest waterpark, Andamanda Phuket. Other developments contributing to the neighbourhood’s investment potential include the 650,000 sq.m Grand Majestic Palace luxury shopping, hotel and exhibition centre as well as the Andaman Health and Wellness Center, a 57,000 sq.m R&D facility due to open 2027.
“Conveniently located between the beach and town and offering the best facilities and specifications in the market, The Origin Kathu – Patong is ideal for those seeking the perfect blend of affordability and convenience,” says Peerapong Jaroon-ek, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Origin Property.
Thailand: a land of property and investment opportunity
The launch of The Origin Kathu – Patong follows a record-breaking year for Origin Property and its associated businesses that saw it achieve 117% of its target for presales with a forecasted 18% YOY increase in net profit to 3,775 MB by December 2023. The strong performance reflects the robustness of the Thai property market and its potential for future growth.
As a world-class tourism destination that receives more than 16 million visitors per year, Phuket is poised to benefit from Thailand’s position as the second-most popular country for health and wellness tourism. Its relatively affordable cost of living and ongoing improvement projects such as Phuket Smart City also make it attractive to digital nomads, retirees and foreigners seeking a second home, while rising property prices and high rental yields enable investors to maximise their ROI.
“The Origin Kathu-Patong offers resort-style facilities and reasonably priced units suitable for self-use or high rental yield investment. A selection of scarce pool access units makes it more attractive for buyers. We anticipate a high demand for units given the growing trend of Phuket property investment.” says Kingston Lai, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Knightsbridge Partners, which is the exclusive Master Agent representing Origin Property in Hong Kong.
