There we go!

A few weeks ago, we began to dig out for our new building, called Flexi House. This is a apartment house with flexible apartments. Of a total of 8 apartments, 6 of them have connecting doors to the apartment next door. Everything to create more opportunities for accommodation in different sizes and price ranges. But with the same quality and interior style as other apartments on the Malee Highlands.

We dig a lot to get to the right level so that the building does not disturb the view from  buildings behind. Everything is measured by digital measuring instruments by our building managers. Reinforcing iron to the structure has come and the workers prepare them before they are to be used.


We have really felt that it has been high season in Koh Lanta and it’s still going on! We often feel that you would like more hours in one day or that cloning machine had been invented 🙂

The construction of the Malee Highlands progresses good even if we wish it could go faster. At the same time, you cannot stress a building if you want to maintain the quality of what you build.

Of the 8 apartments we have had for sale in the D and E house all are sold, F-House will start to be built in a few months from now.

More information about F-House HERE

The Flexi House with eight apartments will begin to build during March. Here are four apartments left for sale.

In recent months, we have not been updating our blog so we have gathered many things below.

E-House
We have the floor and kitchen benches are installed. A lot of glass has been installed and we are waiting for the big glasses to come in the next few weeks.
Pool pumps in E3 and E4 are installed. Recently we got the electricity plugged in both the E and D house so it’s starting to light up well now! Furniture is stored in various storage rooms ready to be installed as soon as the house is closed with glass and doors. The specially designed doors and furniture will arrive at the end of April.

D-House
We have got AC installed in one of the apartments and soon the other apartments will get theirs. Fixing’s work is going on in full and the stairs to these will be delivered in late April together with the remaining doors. Soon we will wallpaper  D2 foundwall and arrange D2 for photo shooting. Then there will soon be a new trip to Phuket to order things from IKEA and buy other things good for the rest of the D apartments. Curtains are ordered for D2! It will be so fun to finish this and then the others of course 🙂

Other Construction
There is a lot of work going on on the Malee Highlands. The supporting walls are built and the pipes are beeing installed under the road. Water tanks are ordered and an additional water hole will be drilled. The work with B and C The house is going on fully and in a few weeks we will begin to build the Restaurant pool with associated rooms for various storage rooms, games room, service rooms, etc.

We have started the digging for Flexihouse and we are in the starting pit to begin with the structure.

Many people talk about the low season at Lanta and that it will be a bit nice with quiet time. For Highlands, there will be no low season, we will be here and monitor everything in place to make it as good as we say it will be!

Rental at Malee Highlands
The rental at Malee Highlands will open on December 15th. The construction of large machines will be minimal as we will place this into what is called the low season. All in order for our owners and tenants to get as good a stay as possible. Working hours for construction during high season will be between 9.00 and 17.00.

If you want to rent on Malee Highlands from December 15, 2018, you can send an e-mail to mia@maleehighlands.com
There will be free school bus to both schools (must be booked) as well as shuttle bus to the beach.
Some kind of consumption will be offered on or in connection with Malee Highlands as well as home delivery service from selected restaurants.
One can also book the shuttel bus to get to a restaurant in the evening! A public pool will be on site or in connection to Malee Highlands.

Warmly welcome to Malee Highlands!

Mia and Mattias TerngĂ„rd, Poseidon Villas – Sales and Management has their office on Long Beach (In the same building as Dreamy Spa but closer to Saladan)
During our 14 years at Koh Lanta we have built Malee Beach with 70 properties. Have about 25 second-hand sales.

We are still working to help people sell houses and apartments on Koh Lanta while we also are building 60 apartments on our new project Malee Highlands.

Southern Lanta
We have previously stayed away from Southern Lanta’s area as we did not think we had enough knowledge about the area to be able to mediate this in a good way. After receiveing request several times , we found the opportunity to collaborate with Stefan Lebert who started Koh Lanta’s first Swedish school “Lanta Sanuk School” and since he also planned and sold all 26 Villas on Southern Lanta and over half of the apartments at Southern Residence we believe that he has the knowlege. He also started the first rental business on Koh Lanta, today called Lanta Hideaways, where he is now back as the owner 13 years later.

Sell or buy ​​your property
So if you have a villa or apartment in Southern Lanta’s area you want to sell, feel free to contact us and we will tell you more!
Of course, we also sell real estate on the Malee Beach area!
Malee Highlands area has apartments, and some of them offer a 7-year installment plan or a 3-year income guarantee.
Please contact us if you have a house or villa somewhere else on Koh Lanta so we can look at this as well.

Background to why we came to Koh Lanta
Stefan and Camilla Lebert were a strong contributing factor to finding Koh Lanta and take the big step to pack our bags and move. When we read their website about breaking up from Sweden we were totally sold. They had started a Swedish School at Koh Lanta “Lanta Sanuk School” where we entered our 2 children Elinore and Emil.


2004 we sold everything in Sweden and took a Thaimout


We rented a two room bungalow the first two seasons.


When we where touristing in Bangkok


Lanta Sanuk School 2004

We are a solid team that together has 50 years of experience in Koh Lanta and found accommodation for singles, couples and families looking for a lovely place on earth to live.
Wether it been for sale, purchase, rent or as a guest. To help people in different ways has become our lifestyle.

As you may have seen, we have finished the floor in Chic House D4 and soon D3 will be clear.

Viktig teknisk information – att lĂ€sa innan man investerar

Det Àr stora skillnader pÄ byggteknik i Thailand. Ytan Àr ju inte alltid det viktigaste utan vad som finns under och hur varje delmoment Àr utfört och med vad för material.
Tidigare har vi bla berört vikten av att betongstommen blir korrekt utförd och sÄ Àven om att byggnaderna har rÀtt takbelÀggning. Ytterligare en viktig punkt Àr badrum och balkonger.

Traditionell byggteknik i Thailand och som appliceras pÄ de flesta stÀllen Àr att en betongstruktur gjuts och att golvbelÀggningen(klinker/skiffer mm) sedan lÀggs i ett tjockt lager sÀttbruk, förhoppningsvis med fall. Ingen fuktspÀrr eller tÀtskikt och bara en enkel liten Thaibrunn med minimalt vattenlÄs dÀr dessutom röret gÄr hela vÀgen upp till överkant golvbelÀggning.

Man tillÄter helt enkelt vatten att bli stÄende i husstrukturen. Denna teknik Àr inte funktionell eller pÄ nÄgot sÀtt rekommendabel i ett vÄtutrymme som anvÀnds pÄ det sÀttet som vi Falanger gör idag, ej heller pÄ balkonger som skall klara ideliga skyfall kombinerat med stark sol. Vi kommer nedan beskriva lite steg för steg om hur detta hanteras pÄ
Malee Highlands och vi anser att det Àr av yttersta vikt att man faktiskt kan redogöra för hur detta moment genomförts.


Allt damm tas bort frÄn betongplattan och hÀr borstar vi in cement,primer och vatten som förberedelser för
gjutningen med fall. Detta Àr viktigt sÄ att det verkligen fÀster i underlaget.


Fallet Àr nu gjutet med en fuktbestÀndig specialbetong.


FuktspÀrr appliceras pÄ vÀggar och en bit ut pÄ golv. Ett badrum bestÄr av olika zoner och fuktskyddet
mÄste anpassas efter hur stor pÄfrestningen Àr i dessa olika zoner.


NÀr man monterar större plattor som hÀr, sÄ mÄste/bör man dubbellimma. AlltsÄ jobba in fixet (fÀstmassan)
bÄde pÄ vÀgg och pÄ plattan. PÄ detta sÀtt motverkar man risken med att plattorna i framtiden slÀpper
med alla problem som det skapar.


Vi anvÀnder oss av rejÀla brunnar och hÀr Àr brunnen monterad och sÄ att Àven det rejÀla medföljande
gummimembranet som agerar extra fuktspÀrr dÀr pÄfrestningen Àr som störst.


Första lagret av fuktspÀrr som lagts omlott med spÀrren frÄn vÀggen Àr nu gjord, fler lager tÀtskikt ÄterstÄr.

Ett rejÀlt vattenlÄs dÀr vattnet inte torkar ut Àr av vikt för att stoppa eventuell lukt.
Rör pÄ Lanta Àr fulla av hÄr, hudrester mm och detta löser man genom att löpande
hÀlla i starka kemikalier i rören. Detta Àr sÄklart inte bra för naturen och definitivt inte
för rör och tÀtningar som efter en tid kommer börja lÀcka. Detta skapar stora problem
och kostnader för den som köpt.  DÀrför Àr det sÄ viktigt med funktionen att det inte
följer med ner i rören utan kan rensas regelbundet av stÀdpersonal.

Vi har en extra backventil som hÀngsle och livrem mot lukt och kryp. Standard pÄ Lanta Àr att grÄ och svartvatten förs ihop utanför huskroppen, tillsammans med undermÄliga brunnar gör att det Àr mycket vanligt med lukt som gÄr bakvÀgen. Detta Àr inte bara otrevligt utan
gaserna som skapas kan ocksÄ vara hÀlsofarliga.

DÀrför kÀnns det extra bra med vÄrt system dÀr vi separerar de olika systemen och dessutom efter filtrering och analys av vattnet ÄteranvÀnder till t.ex. bevattning mm.

Kanske kan en smidig sÀljare snacka bort vikten av vÄr text ovan, men vem stÄr sedan med problemen om detta inte gjorts riktigt?!

E-mail to: mia@maleehighlands.com Mark with “Flexi House”

               

The first apartments will be finished soon!

When you start a new project, you always hope that the plans will last. Since we have already built Malee Beach on Koh Lanta between 2006-2012, we know that things usually take longer than expected. Therefore, we decided not to stress the construction so that the durability of the construction would not suffer. We have taken the time to find the right materials, products and furniture so that the apartments will maintain the high standards we want.

We expect to have our first “Show Unit” at the Chill House (D-House) to be ready in the middle of February. The “Show Units” at the Chic House (E-House) will be ready approximately one month after the above.

You are of course more than welcome to contact us about a private viewing at Malee Highlands.

Sometimes you can get those funny pictures that for us foreigners shows that we are in another country with another culture!
We took this picture on today’s dinner, which was put in the sun to be dried.  Have a nice meal!

TOT has pulled a 1260 meter fiber cable to Malee Highlands so now there is fiber in the area!
It really feels that we are working the correct way now, we plan, prepare and simplify completion in the right order!
Everything gets so much easier if everything is prepared! At Malee Highlands, each individual owner does not need to
have his own Fiber subscriptions, this thing and others are managed centrally by Malee Highlands Service Company,
all to make it easy to be an owner!

There are many things  that has to fit into the puzzle now and we are doing everything in our powe to make it work!
We are tileing in bathrooms and on balconies. Decoration stone are beeing installed. Windows and doors will be installed
so that we can “close” then Tarkett comes and lay the floor. The furniture company from Chiang Mai where we make special
designed furniture has been here to measure all apartments. Then they will come in mid January and install the furniture in
the D-House.

In the E-House there are about the same things that happen but in the slightly larger building are all the upcoming installations
windows, doors, floors, furniture etc. about a month after the D-house.

Work is going on at the Restaurant building.

At the side of the Restaurant we have started to build the area wall.

If you are in Koh Lanta and are curious. Check out our office located at the main road in the same building as
Dreamy Spa. Opposite Mr. Wee. Usually we are in the office between 9 am to 5 pm. It is also possible to just go up to
Malee Highlands but we ask you to be careful because it is a construction site.

After Mattias and I built up the beautiful area of Malee Beach, we said to each other that “We will never do this again” But after being “Normal Real Estate Brokers” for several years, the creative spirit began to come back and we again found  the PERFECT land piece and we could not resist it and decided to build a new nice area. The thoughts and ideas flowed and it became Malee Highlands! If you are interested to have a look at the area, it’s ok to go up there  but we ask you to contact us if you want a correct viewing so we can accompany you so that everyone are  using safety helmets. It is a construction area and we know where it is safe to go.

The progresswork at Malee Highlands are going as plan and soon we will start to tile the bathrooms and pools, and the units will also be painted inside and outside.

 

D-Huset – Chill House
As the land is so high with different levels, you get some new possibilities than when building on flat ground. Under this building we have created a roofed motorbikeparking. Stairs are built on both sides of the building.

E-Huset – Chic House
As I wrote earlier, it’s a very level-rich piece of land which gives us so many more opportunities. The 3D images cannot really
explain how it will look. The E-house is at the front of the project and has an uninterrupted sea view. It’s hard to describe
only with pictures, you must come and visit us to really understand the feeling.  The first time I saw the land at Malee Highlands
I felt like I wanted to spinn around and sing “The Hills are alive” because that’s how it feels! I’m on top of the world!

It feels very good that the fences will be installd soon.

Restaurant

You always have a vision of how things will be and we work towards making it as good or better than the
3D images made. Returning to the levels at Malee Highlands. During the construction we upgrade whwn we
see that there are new exciting solutions that we had no idea when we made the drawings we try to implement them.


Pictures from the kitchen area.


Here youcan see that the bar counter starts coming up and the toilets have come into place. In front of this building
the pool and poolarea will be built.

Others

In addition to the above buildings, there are many more things happening at Malee Highlands. It is drilled for water, planned
for electricity and water, the A1, A2, B and C buildings are under full construction.


This is the Gym that is placed under the Restaurant.


This picture is before moulding of B-Building 1st floor.

We had a nice visitor from Homepro Krabis Manager Khun Kwan.

The company DOS came with a whole delegation to discuss water tanks, water treatment systems, etc.

We drill an additional water hole so that the Malee Highlands will have enough water.

 

 

You just have to love Koh Lanta and Thailand. I often think about the choice we made in 2004 to leave Sweden and it’s cold weather. Reminded me of this again when we sat outside at a bar in short sleeves a few evenings ago. It really is a special feeling. Mattias promised me that time that I would never have to freeze again. I also heard thad I should not have to clean, do laundry or cook but he claims he never said it 🙂 The truth is that we eat out basically every day but clean and laundry we do by ourselves. Right now, it’s only the two of us. When we had our children Emil & Elinore at home we actually had an employee Housekeeping woman who cleaned, washed and cooked amazingly good food.

Our new office is really a boost to what it looked like in 2006 when we started the Malee Beach Project. There are quite a lot of things that have improved on Koh Lanta. We have Fiber which we are so happy with. There is so much more good material to get  than in 2006, we have also learned so much during the previous project that we now have taken with us in to the Malee Highlands Project.

  

Yesterday we received our first IKEA delivery. You might think it may be a bit early, but the difference from IKEA in Sweden and IKEA in Thailand is incredibly high. It’s not just ordering online and getting it delivered. It’s really complicated and IKEA’s deliveries do not come to the door if you live on Koh Lanta. Just to the ferry, but since we are in Thailand theese things can always be solved in one way or another. This time we arranged our own transport because IKEA would send 6 small pick-up trucks because the transport company did not have large trucks …. Then it takes a really long time when you are at IKEA, it took 4 hours for IKEA in Phuket before they had typed in. all items and picked all items and we could pay. Articles who were not in stock we could not buy, nor order …. Most of our furniture at Malee Highlands is customized on furniture factory. But the good things that mattresses and sofas will come from IKEA and other small stuff.

Take a look at our latest drone movie to see how Malee Highlands looks after 6 months of construction. It’s really coming up well! It will be so great to move to the area next year!

Hope to see you this season on Koh Lanta 17/18
