Launch of Serenity Sky Villas in Hong Kong

The only sky villa in Vietnam is a top-of-the-line collection that elevates luxury living to new heights


(September 28 2017, Hong Kong) Ashton Hawks is delighted to announce its collaboration with leading land developer, SonKim Land to launch Serenity Sky Villas in Hong Kong.


Serenity Sky Villas, the first-ever sky villas in Vietnam, is situated in the prime location (District 3) of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), surrounded with a peaceful neighborhood of embassies with the Consulate General of Japan settled right next to it. The ten-million-dollar-worth luxury residence (in Hong Kong currency) houses just 45 exclusive units, with only 12 foreign quota available for foreigners. It targets at the very high net worth individuals and Ashton Hawks is positive about Hong Kong buyers’ readiness to invest. The property market in HCMC has experienced huge booms, and there’s been a driving demand in residential property with luxury projects in particular. The mega-rich in Hong Kong are looking to invest in high-end projects with lucrative return, especially with an eye on the one-of-a-kind, the “collectible,” the status-matching uniqueness. Serenity Sky Villas is the exact prestigious model that is totally comparable to other sky villas around the world such as Soori High Line in Manhattan, USA, the Marq in Singapore and Bandra Ohm in India with the extra advantage of innovative facilities and privacy privilege.


District 3 is known as the “Embassy District” which is the synonym of “prestigious prominence.” Land is scarce in the upscale area for residential projects yet Serenity Sky Villas is situated right in the supreme location. The ideal location also contributes to Ashton Hawks’ determination in the project, on top of the 6% p.a. expected gross rental yield plus the promising capital gain in the years to come. What’s more, SonKim Land is a renowned land developer with a great track record of building famous residential and commercial properties, including The Nassim, in collaboration with Hongkong Land, Gateway, a residential complex with luxurious 491 units and 85 units a five star serviced residence, Indochine Park Tower, a 56 units of serviced residence overlooking the Unification Palace, and Empress Tower, the Grade A office building, all in HCMC. The success has urged SonKim Land to continue its excellence by adding Serenity Sky Villas to the list of projects with exquisite architectural style and design. Each villa has its private entrance that opens to a tranquil environment right in the epicenter of the vibrant city, a private pool equipped with a countercurrent jet system, a private elevator that leads to the foyer of each villa, a private garden, and the seven-meter-high ceiling and expansive windows to capture the panoramic view of the 300-year-old city.


The deluxe residence itself is a piece of art, a collectible item that features luxurious amenities like a separated elevator for car, a large rooftop pool with picturesque city view, a gym, a sauna and many others complemented with five-star-hotel-standard housekeeping service by SonKim Land’s Indochine Park Tower, and world-class concierge service company. “We position ourselves as a pioneer in the property development sector creating unique living qualities and experiences for customers,” said Andy Suk Jung Han, Managing Director of Residential Group, SonKim Land. “The notable thing about this villa project is its location. District 3 has the nickname ‘the mansion village’, a symbol of elegance, sophistication, and lifestyle inspired by the legacy of the city’s over 300 years history.  Serenity Sky Villas is proud to offer a place full of old Saigon nostalgia.”


Ashton Hawks, on the other hand, is also honored to offer this rare opportunity to buyers in Hong Kong to accentuate the distinguished beauty of the city, to help open up the dynamic economy for investment. “We have introduced Vietnam property market to Hong Kong investors after the new residential housing law implemented on July 1, 2015 which allows foreigners to purchase properties in the country. Since then we have received huge interest especially from our high net worth clients. They believe Vietnam is following China’s footsteps where they had made billions when they first entered [the property market] decades ago,” said Mrs. Michele Cheng, Director of Ashton Hawks. With regard to her insight into affluent residences and in particular, the splendid Serenity Sky Villas, “I’m sure the driving demand of ultra-luxury residential properties is just the beginning and we look forward to a huge expansion in the transaction of Serenity Sky Villas,” Cheng said. The auspicious prospect of the upscale segment is also well received by Mr. Fred Ho, who has full confidence in the prosperous market and especially when it comes to a prime location that is hard to acquire. “Serenity Sky Villas is a very rare and prestigious property because District 3 has only limited new land supply. Besides, the innovative facilities simply make the residence exceptional, the private pool design highlights its eminence on top of the overall privacy, for sure it can fulfill the clients’ expectation of high-end living with the keynote on both secluded privilege and outdoor space enjoyment,” said Ho, the Director of Ashton Hawks.


The launch of Serenity Sky Villas in Hong Kong will take place on October 14, 2017 Porterhouse by Laris, 7/F California Tower, 30-36 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central.
