The Haven has always set its sights high, in fact, very high! The property industry in Malaysia came to realize this after the completion of The Haven’s three developments, two of which were in Ipoh.

From its inception at planning to its completion and management as a resort, nothing seems to be left to chance.

It is no wonder that this pioneering green developer has placed Ipoh on the world map and has garnered 43 prestigious local and international accolades thus far.

It was at the successful completion of The Haven Ipoh that Salim Group, one of the biggest conglomerates and the largest land owner in Bintan, invited The Haven’s CEO to view and discuss a development in Bintan. Mr. Peter Chan, The Haven’s CEO, spotted a rare and precious site during the tour.

Ipoh Echo spoke to Mr. Peter Chan, for this exclusive update.

Above All, There Is The Haven

Indeed, The Haven at Lagoi Bay is a most rare and unparalleled site, being so close to Singapore yet pristine and surrounded by three pristine water bodies of sea, river and lake. This combination of the pristine natural environment with the proximity to a major metropolis, in this case Singapore, seems to be an assured winner for this keenly-sought development.

“The decision to purchase the land was an easy one. This investment / development opportunity is timely given the great growth prospect in Indonesia at a time of rapid liberalisation in property ownership in Indonesia,” Peter explained. “In addition, it is an absolute rarity to be able to purchase a piece of land with three pristine water bodies of sea, river and lake surrounding it. It is priceless!”Good Fortune Followed

Investment-friendly and tourist-friendly incentives offered by the Indonesian government began to unfold immediately after the land purchase. Based on the experience and track record of The Haven, the 8 towers of high rises, unprecedented for Bintan, was also approved.

All-inclusive Family Resort Residences

Peter immediately set to work to duplicate an improved version of The Haven’s hallmark family resort residence for its Bintan site.

At the surrounds of nature, besides the turquoise waters, white powdery sands and virgin mangrove forest, you will be going back to a home full of facilities - a trademark seahorse infinity swimming pool, specially commissioned crab-shaped water theme park and many other tailored amenities in a super-sized clubhouse (of three floors) totalling 48,000 square feet that contains almost all you need there, including a well-equipped gymnasium, an arcade room, a theatrette, a ballroom, meeting rooms, a professional spa centre, restaurants and bars.

Staying true to the signature slogan of The Haven, it will be “THE VACATION HOME YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED”. It comes complete with all-inclusive family facilities that cater to all three generations, and especially to the elderly, even those on wheelchairs. The development will be managed to 5-Star standards and the units will be fully and impeccably furnished with a visual interplay of quality, luxury and style befitting The Haven brand.

Another aspect of the resort’s innovative offering is the modular spatial concept which affords a high degree of flexibility in customising the living space. Smaller units can be tastefully combined or split up as necessary, depending on the future requirement of the owner.

Four international and regional airports will provide complete worldwide connectivity: Changi International Airport, Hang Nadim International Airport, Raja Haji Fisabilillah International Airport and a forthcoming Bintan Resort International Airport. By luxury ferry, it is an easy 50-minute ride from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. Plus, a 6 km long bridge being proposed will connect Telaga Punggur in Batam to Tanjung Uban in Bintan in just 10 minutes.

Consumers who truly know what constitutes value in resort property will know that The Haven, Lagoi Bay Bintan is being launched at a most reasonable price. Often, consumers miss the important factor of quality, branding, use of space, appropriate facilities and overall management and maintenance. A basic property in Indonesia can easily sell for SGD300 – SGD400 psf. This is not something that will attract the affluent who wish for a convenient, attractive, trouble free lifestyle. The development can only be of interest to them if the factors of usability, branding, convenience, security, management, maintenance and rentability are taken into consideration. These factors determine the potential rise in value of the property

To enable the developer to satisfy these demanding requirements, an additional cost to the developer of SGD250 – SGD300 is unavoidable. Thus the expected initial launching price of SGD700 is really a bargain for those in the know. The developer is fully committed to managing the operation well, just as it has shown in The Haven Ipoh. There is usually a premium to a managed residence, as in Ritz Carlton Singapore, for example, which sells at SGD3,600 psf. This compares to SGD2,500 psf for a luxury condominium in Singapore, giving a premium of SGD1,100 psf, simply because of the branding and the expected quality of management. The Haven is launching its units without any premium at all – hence its great value to early purchasers!

 

This prestigious integrated resort development will cater to those desiring to have a second home, a vacation home or a retirement home. It will appeal to the Chinese, Malaysians, Japanese, Koreans, and those in the Middle East, in addition to its prime market from Singapore and Indonesia.

The Show Gallery at site in Bintan of 18,000 square feet shows the seriousness of the development and will be completed by the end of November 2017. It will be open daily from 9am to 6pm.
