About the project, New Nordic Coral Beach Resort
We are making a holiday village in one of the few remaining “untouched” places of Thailand. True to the New Nordic vision we will develop minimarts, massage centre, restaurant, laundry, etc etc. So they have all they need right outside the door, with the amazing nature and opportunities of Chumphon outside
The first thing we had to do was to find a location that was totally unspoilt. The plan was to give tourists the opportunity to experience the real Thailand but in a more stylish setting.
Like the famous Norwegian explorers of the past, we travelled around this great country to find a new paradise, a place that we could bring both our knowledge and fresh ideologies to. It was important for us to find a place where we had the ability to establish a standard, for not just this but for future projects. After searching the length and breadth of this amazing country, we finally found the perfect spot; situated in the lesser known province of Chumphon.
Many have travelled through this area on their way to and from Bangkok, or to take one of the many ferries to one of the many beautiful islands; but few have taken the time to stop off and explore this unspoilt, idyllic and unique province.
When we first saw the endless beautiful beaches, where mass tourism had not yet set foot, we knew we had found Utopia! The perfect place for our beach project! The area had already been featured in the Norwegian newspapers under the heading “Ten unknown places in Thailand you should visit”. This more than cemented our belief that we had found a secret paradise in Thailand.
We knew that to accomplish our goal of offering a complete resort package, the area had to be not only idyllic, but also be perfectly situated. At Coral beach we have definitely found it.
With accessibility being a key, here at Coral Beach we struck lucky! The resort not only sits close to both the centre of Chumphon and the city’s airport, but it’s also near the port, where guests can catch ferries to the world famous islands of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
With daily flights to and from Bangkok along with hourly ferry departures to the Islands, Coral Beach has all bases covered.
For a resort to be successful, it needs a concept, something that grows over time and brings us all closer together. We plan to build a society where tourists from abroad and Thailand live together and share their cultures and experiences with each other. This will enable us to create a more homely and unique environment.
The resort will initially consist of four apartment buildings, with future plans for 30 individual bungalows to be built on their own separate plots. For those of you who require a detached home on the beach, a bungalow is simply perfect.
Once you become an owner of one of our houses or apartments, we will encourage you to rent out the property when you are not using it yourself. This is an optional thing, but offers a fantastic alternative for those who want to make money on their investment.
Most of us who travel to Thailand are looking to experience the countries unique culture, to this end we want our guests and owners to be entertained, so therefore a variety of activities will be made available. Coral Beach will offer tours, excursions, games, cooking courses and theme nights. Sports enthusiasts will also be delighted with the many activities readily available, both on site and locally.
Our plans include the opening of our own tourist centre, restaurant, bar and beach club; so all your needs will be catered for. On site local experts will be on hand 24/7 to recommend you the best local places to dine, markets and national parks to visit along with beautiful and cultural landmarks to spend your lazy days.
In addition to all this, we know how important your health and safety is when visiting us, and therefore we will also offer a health and wellness service. Our on site team possess an abundance of knowledge, experience and contacts, ensuring a good working relationship with local doctors and hospitals nearby if required.
The resort will also be fully accessible to wheelchairs and any other individuals who require some form of daily assistance during their visit. All this will be available in the development of the roughly 130 apartments. These will be spread across four separate buildings, each having a maximum of two or three floors. Each apartment will be at 50-200 m², depending on whether there are one or two bedrooms and one or two bathrooms. Everyone will have storage and large balconies, which have either completely or partially sun screens. There will be an opportunity for both smaller and larger apartments on request, and in addition to this we are planning to build around 30 individual bungalows on the site in the future.
All apartments will be of the highest quality, equipped with latest technology from internet and communications to television and other entertainment.
Both a top class restaurant and beach club with a large pool will be available on-site along with everything you might need from taxi service, laundry, grocery store, bakery, massage, fitness and much more.
This whole initiative to create and build a resort that focuses on a one-stop “real Thailand” experience in a caring and friendly community, is based on our experience having worked closely with government officials within the community. Local forces will help us with all Thai relationships during the construction and operation of the project.
During the last 15 years of doing business here in Thailand (over 2 years of that spent in this area) we have learned everything we need to know about this amazing country. We are certain that our vision of blending both foreign visitors and local residents together in this idyllic setting will help create our perfect little piece of heaven on earth.
Welcome to Coral Beach!
