Koh Samui, Thailand, May 19, 2014 -- Asia Pacific’s premier developers, architects, interior designers and real estate agents gathered in their hundreds at the Shangri-la Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Friday (May 9th) for the results of the Asia Pacific Property Awards. Entries were received from companies in 26 countries across the Asia Pacific region. Brunei, Myanmar and Nepal joined the competition for the first time this year with each being successful in achieving one of the prestigious awards.
Lord Courtown from the House of Lords in British Parliament was present on stage in his capacity as Chairman of the Architecture and Interior Design categories committee while each winning company was presented with either a ‘Highly Commended’ or ‘5-Star’ award.
Mandalay Beach Villas received ‘5-Star Best Property Single Unit (Thailand)’ and ‘Highly Commended Residential Development (Thailand)’ awards from the Asia Pacific Property Awards sponsored by Maybank and Smeg. Mandalay Samui Developments competed against a number of developers from all over the Asia Pacific region to receive this top recognition.
Tim Bancroft, Project Owner of Mandalay Beach Villas says, "It is an honour to be an award winner of the Asia Pacific Property Awards. I would like to thank our entire team at Mandalay Beach Villas as well as the Judges for this prestigious award. Thank you again from everyone at Mandalay Beach Villas, we will proudly display this award as a great accomplishment for our team.”
Tibor Szedlak, Founder, Managing Director of Mandalay Samui Developments says, “I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for recognising and appreciating our project. It is a tremendous honour to be acknowledged by the prestigious Asia Pacific Property Awards. I cannot thank the team enough for all of the hard work, dedication and attention to every detail from the pre-planning stages to the completion of Mandalay Beach Villas.”
The 5-star winners had been re-judged to select just one from each of the 47 different categories who will go forwards to represent the Asia Pacific region in the 2014 International Property Awards. They will compete against other regional winners from Africa, Arabia, Europe, UK and the Americas to find the ultimate World’s Best in each category. The results of the eagerly anticipated ‘World’s Best’ Property Awards will be revealed at a glittering awards presentation ceremony in Dubai this December.
Asia Pacific has an enviable and unbeaten record of success at international level. The region scooped a total of 13 World’s Best Awards in 2012 but then went on to break its own record number by scoring an impressive 18 World’s Best Awards in 2013.
Stuart Shield, President of the International Property Awards said, “We will all now wait to see if Asia Pacific can not only retain the title of best performing region of the world in the International Property Awards but also beat its own record for yet another successive year. Each region is highly competitive and with levels of excellence within the property industry rising annually, this makes the competition hugely exciting as it heads towards the final conclusion in December.”
