INVESTING IN KOH SAMUI
Koh Samui is the ideal location for your overseas property investment with a continually increasing demand for luxury family holidays attracting guests from all over the world
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui is the third largest island in Thailand. The island is favoured by families seeking a quieter and more exclusive environment and ever since Four Seasons launched an
ultraluxury villa resort on the island it has attracted many of the top name brands such Intercontinental, W Retreat and Banyan Tree.
The island boasts an extensive infrastructure including: an international airport serving Hong Kong,
Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and 2 new routes to mainland China; several high quality hospitals; a leading
Asian golf course; a state of the art shopping centre along with every imaginable dining experience.
Thailand and in particular Koh Samui continues to show strong growth in travel and tourism. The market
has demonstrated fantastic resilience over the last few years, even during a relatively flat global market.
Shiva Samui offers you the peace of mind of dealing with an established development partner having
already developed the original Samui Beach Village in record time. Additionally you have the reassurance
of a substantial yield demonstrated through 10 years of managing and letting luxury villas along with
substantial capital gains by investing at the right time. Using historical data from our existing owners and

of 10% plus per annum.

LEGAL ADVICE AND GUIDANCE
Shiva Samui development offers a safe and secure structure of ownership for buying your new luxury
villa in Koh Samui. We have over 10 years experience of assisting investors and owners to realise the
dream of owning their very own piece of paradise and achieve this with a combination of ownership
and freehold all double secured with a back-to-back lease.
In Thailand it is permitted for anyone to own the building, and therefore the structure of the villa is
owned outright by yourselves, your company or a pension fund.
Shiva Samui development is built on freehold land with full legal title and access rights and is free of
any mortgages or legal encumbrance. As a foreigner, Thai law does not currently permit you to own
freehold land. We have therefore, along with our lawyers created a structure of ownership that gives
both the security of freehold ownership without the complications of setting up a Thai Company.
The land for the development, including all the property, common area and gardens, is freehold and has
beneficial legal ownership in the name of Shiva Development Holdings Limited - a none-trading Hong
Kong registered company.
As a property owner you are granted preferential shares in Shiva Development Holdings Limited directly
proportional to the size of your plot. In addition to this you are also granted a lease with options for 120
years, registered at the Thai Land Office which guarantees both surety of ownership and that no
mortgages, loans or liens can be placed on the land.
In the event you wish to sell your villa, this is a simple case of selling the structure along with
transferring your shares in the holding company. Should you already be in a position to own land in
Thailand or already have your own Thai company we can also provide you with the individual Chanote
for your freehold plot.
As with the purchase of any property, we would advise you appoint your own legal representative and if
you would like us to assist we can provide you with the names of reputable law firms in Koh Samui.
