Minor International’s luxury residential resort properties continue to win industry accolades, receiving three prestigious awards from industry peers for The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok and the Residences at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai. Having garnered numerous awards for their Asian properties over the past two years, Minor International continues to set a new standard for luxury development in the region.

The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok received two coveted awards from the Asia Pacific Property Awards, in association with Bloomberg Television and Google; and the Residences at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai received designation as one of the Top 20 Resort Properties from Property Report South East Asia Magazine.

“We are delighted to receive this recognition from our peers in the industry,” said William E.

The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok Win Two Asia Pacific Property Awards

Announced this week in Shanghai, the Asia Pacific Property Awards are part of International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious property competition of residential and commercial properties. Each year, they set out to identify the very best real estate professionals and developments across the globe. The Residences at The St. Regis Bangkok, which opened in April, 2011, were given “Highly Commended” awards in two categories: Development of Multiple Units in Thailand; and Apartment in Thailand. All of the award winners will compete for the “World’s Best” recognition at the International Property Awards in London in December, 2011. Just last year, the St. Regis Bangkok received The Best Condo Development Bangkok & Best Condo Development Thailand at the prestigious Thailand Property Awards in November, 2010.
