The Club Penthouse at Phuket’s Kata Rocks condominium development was awarded Best Apartment in the World 2010 at the World Finals of the International Property Awards in London on November 27.
The trophy was given out at a gala dinner at the Lancaster Hotel with over 500 guests attending, including several ambassadors. Most of the team from Kata Rocks attended as well, including developer Richard Pope who received the award.
The International Property Awards, sponsored by Bloomberg Television and Google, are independently judged by 54 international experts from all areas of the real estate industry. Kata Rocks beat entries from 110 countries to win the award.
The Kata Rocks Club Penthouse was conceived and designed by Pope and architect Adrian McCarroll. The apartment covers 460 sq m over two levels and boasts a private infinity swimming pool with uninterrupted views of the Andaman Sea and Ko Phu island.
“It is an honour for us to have received the title of Best Apartment in the World 2010 for our Kata Rocks Club Penthouse. To have been judged by an independent panel of international experts who have deemed our apartment as Best in the World on this, our first development in the Asia Pacific region, is simply astounding,” said Pope.
