Minor International Unveils Kiara Reserve in Phuket’s Layan Bay

Minor International (MINT) and its long-standing partner Kajima Corporation (Kajima) are proud to announce the launch of their newest luxury residential development in Phuket. Nestled among lush, tropical landscapes, Kiara Reserve offers a holistic island lifestyle in Layan Bay – a luxury resort, residential and leisure community on Phuket’s prestigious northwest coast.

Slated for full completion in 2025, Kiara Reserve comprises 17 villas and 25 condominiums ranging in size from 251 to 829 square metres. A deep connection to nature is at the centre of its design ethos: the development’s tropical modernist architecture combines contemporary sensibilities with touches inspired by its island setting and Thailand’s rich artisanal heritage.

Each villa and condominium features three or four en-suite bedrooms and a private pool, hidden amidst verdant foliage for enhanced privacy. In each residence, generous outdoor space allows residents to maximise the benefits of open-air living – from sunlight and views over the treetops into the hills, to birdsong and gentle sea breezes.

Kiara Reserve is managed by Minor Hotels. Drawing from its five-star heritage and ultra-luxury real estate expertise, Minor Hotels delivers a seamless home ownership experience at Kiara Reserve, through resort-inspired residential management that blends world-class hospitality with Phuket’s renowned island warmth, and service that elevates daily life.

Together with residents of two established ultra-luxury developments – Layan Residences by Anantara and Avadina Hills by Anantara, Kiara Reserve residents join a privileged community in Layan Bay. Occupying 100 rai (40 acres) of prime beachfront land in Phuket’s highly sought-after ‘Millionaire’s Mile’, this exclusive enclave is designed for its residents to fall into step with holistic island life, balancing five-star resort living and traditional island leisure with state-of-the-art wellness and innovative gastronomy.

Beach House is a three-storey seaside venue featuring poolside Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, fine dining on the middle floor, and a rooftop bar with expansive views of the Andaman Ocean. Layan Active Zone offers a thrilling range of sports and leisure amenities for all ages, including Phuket’s tallest climbing wall, tennis courts, a Muay Thai boxing ring, outdoor skate park, functional training ground, family-friendly pool and kids’ and teens’ club.

Layan Bay is equipped with its own helipad and jetty, available for the exclusive use of residence owners and guests of the five-star Anantara Layan Phuket Resort. Additional facilities currently in development include an eight-berth marina, a new culinary destination featuring Thai fine dining, a cooking school and first-of-its-kind rooftop observatory, and a new spa and wellness clinic. Beyond the enclave, Phuket’s international airport and countless dining, golf and shopping destinations are only a few minutes’ drive away.

“In addition to a lifestyle and ownership experience unmatched anywhere else on the island, Kiara Reserve offers discerning buyers an opportunity to invest in luxury real estate in one of the region’s strongest second-home markets,” notes Mr. Micah Tamthai, COO of Lifestyle and Real Estate at Minor International. “Minor International’s and Kajima Corporation’s joint commitment to developing Layan Bay as a world-class destination, coupled with the rising global demand for nature- and wellness-centric resort residential products, will place owners of Kiara Reserve in good stead to capitalise on future gains for many years to come.”

Kiara Reserve is available for private ownership from THB 34 million, with freehold, foreign freehold and leasehold titles available based on eligibility. An exclusive preview of the development will be held on 23 and 24 March 2023 in Rajadamri Room 1 on the 14th floor of the St. Regis Bangkok. Private appointments are still available and can be booked by contacting +66 (0) 85 484 8752 or For more information, please visit
