Amanari: Malaysia's newest five-star resort offers excellent yields for British investors
Set against a backdrop of lush green mountainous rainforest reserve and overlooking a crystal clear serene sea, Amanari is a luxurious five-star resort emerging in the heart of one of Asia’s greatest hidden treasures.
Sprawled across five acres in Tanjung Tuan, Port Dickson – one of the rarest double bays in the world that holds a tropical rainforest reserve – Amanari features comprehensive spa and wellness facilities as well as an award-winning design that can rival any world-class resort. Its fully-furnished, extravagant hotel suites boast breathtaking and unobstructed views of the landscape as well as private landscaped balconies.
However, unlike most luxury resorts, Amanari is offering investors an opportunity to own a slice of this leisure paradise, with an exclusive buy-to-let investment plan offered by the developer, Tian Hong Holdings.
Based on this plan, potential investors can purchase a suite and rent it to travellers for an annual return of 7% per annum for the first six years, followed by a projected profit-sharing rental of 10% per annum from the seventh to twelfth year.
Dr F.J. Lim, general manager of Tian Hong Holdings said, “Leveraging on the remarkable growth of Malaysia’s tourism industry and its soaring real estate prices, Amanari is offering investors an exclusive and potentially lucrative buy-to-let investment option. Given its strategic coastal location and design that is in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape, we believe that Amanari will appeal to affluent foreign expatriates and locals who are looking to invest in high-rental-yield properties, as well as the most discerning travellers from all over the world.”
Malaysia was recently ranked 10th most visited country in the world. The tourism industry is a significant contributor to Malaysia’s GDP, maintaining an average growth rate of 12% per annum since 2004. Malaysia recorded 25.7 million tourist arrivals in 2013.
In addition to a double bay and lush nature reserve, Tanjung Tuan also boasts several tourist attractions dubbed the ‘8 Treasures of Tanjung Tuan’, which include one the oldest Royal Palaces in Malaysia, a National Coral Reefs Conservation Area, Turtle Conservation Site, The Cape Rochado Light House, Migratory Bird Watching, and National Mangrove Forest Reserve.
One of Amanari’s highly-anticipated features is its eco-friendly master plan, which creatively incorporates elements of mangrove trees, sea water and terraced fields into the building design.
Scheduled to be completed in 2017, Amanari’s hotel suites are priced between RM 750,000 and RM 1.5 million (£141,000 and £282,000) each, providing a great opportunity for investors to capitalise on Malaysia’s position as one of the top eco-luxurious destinations in the world.
“92% of properties in Malaysia are bought locally” explains Dr Lim, “and the government have begun restricting how many properties native buyers can own. Since the year 2000, the property market has not dipped more than 5%, the country has a stable government and a structure that offers favourable terms for overseas buyers.”
