Humble beginnings

Upon visiting Thailand multiple times and meeting the love of his life Phitsamai, Walter developed a dream of one day moving to this beautiful country and starting his own business. After 7 years of hard work and saving in Switzerland, both Walter and Phitsamai decided to take the risk, sell all their belongings and permanently move to Thailand. Arriving with only two luggage bags on their hands and a little bit of money, there was no time to waste. Soon after they took their first entrepreneurial steps and got involved with restaurant business, hosting cabaret shows. A year later, the restaurant business turned out to be a failure, and it was time to take a different approach, which led to a decision to get involved in Hua Hin property market as a real estate broker.

Manora Company Limited

On July 22nd, 1998, Manora Company Limited was officially registered and opened for business with only four employees. At the time, Thailand’s economy was going through some rough times due to the Asian crisis, and property market got flooded with various properties for sale, which seemed like a great opportunity to get involved in real estate business, however there weren’t many buyers looking to invest or retire in Hua Hin. Having many properties available for sale, but no interested buyers, put Manora in a quite challenging situation with uncertain future. Luckily, the news about the beauty of Hua Hin spread throughout Europe during their first year in business, and suddenly more and more people started to visit Hua Hin for both holiday and investment purposes. With lots of potential clients looking for a house or a condo, Manora grabbed the opportunity to capitalize on the market and soon after became the most popular real estate agency in Hua Hin.

How real estate agent became a property developer?

With the well-established reputation and great knowledge of the area, Manora decided to invest in Hua Hin property market themselves. First, they started to buy and renovate old townhouses which were very popular and in demand at the time. This turned out to be a great business move as people started to notice the quality of Manora’s work and requesting them to start building detached, single standing houses. Listening to their clients, Walter and Phitsamai decided to buy small plots of land to build the villas and help foreign people to settle in Thailand. After having success with single standing houses, Manora soon became a co-developer of two projects with 29 villas on Soi 116, called Sirin Villas I & II. Upon completing and selling all the units in the projects, Manora was thinking of their next step, when a team of three Swedish investors contacted them, with an idea to build hundreds of properties in Prachuap Khiri Khan, about 120 km from Hua Hin. Manora would be responsible for the development, house construction and legal services, while Swedish team would be in charge of promotion and selling. With high demand from Swedish retirees, this was yet another extremely successful project, which made Manora Co. Ltd., a respectable and well recognized property developer.

Baan Manora & Manora Village

After a few years, the project with Swedish investors was completed and it was time for the next business adventure. Manora decided to move back to Hua Hin and start their own development in Khao Tao area, Hua Hin’s most beautiful location. Initially, they started with a small project called Baan Manora, consisting of five very large, two-story villas with private swimming pools and spacious land plots. Being the only developer in Khao Tao, the villas sold out quickly due to the high demand, which influenced Manora to start a larger development in the same area, Manora Village I. The idea behind Manora Village was to build a safe and secure community, offering Swiss quality management and services.

Manora Village I

Manora Village I is an outstanding bouquet of 50 elegant and brilliantly conceived villa properties with stunning design. Each property was built to a high specification with top quality materials and created to fit the demands of a modern holiday home, providing a variety of layouts designed to cater for a range of lifestyles in this wonderful location. Manora Village I construction was officially launched on the 1st April 2006 and completed within 24 months! All of the 50 Villas sold quite fast and have been completed within the contracted time scale.

Manora Village II

Following the success of the first project, in 2009 Manora decided to buy additional plot of land next to the first development and build Manora Village II with total of 22 luxury Villas, each set in an open plan complex surrounded by a perimeter wall and security entrance. These beautiful Villas have been designed with lots of windows and glass doors to optimize this idyllic setting and serenity in a natural environement. All the Villas are arranged with access to a huge tropical landscaped garden area incorporating a communal swimming pool, Jacuzzi and a poolside Bar. Manora Village II is the ideal integration of detached Villas with each plot sub-divided using plants and shrubs designed to create an open, park-like setting.

Manora Village III

Manora Village III is the latest and most exclusive villa development that focuses on excellence of design and construction of an ideally located community of 27 luxury villas. The construction started in late 2015 and finished within 24 months. All villas are designed with a blend of European quality and contemporary Asian influence which includes a common swimming pool with Jacuzzi and a pool side fitness room, set in a huge landscaped grounds that guarantee both privacy and unrivalled tranquillity.

What’s next?

Since there are only few villas left for sale in Manora Village developments, it is time for a new adventure. Since January 2018 Manora Co. Ltd., re-opened the Manora Property Hua Hin real estate agency and has assembled a team of devoted and talented real estate agents, who strive to provide smooth, efficient, and stress-free transactions, whether the clients are interested in purchasing, selling, renting, or leasing of their desired property in Hua Hin and surrounding areas.
