Port Takola – Thailand’s New Marina

Port Takola

Port Takola Marina Co.,Ltd. is the family owned company purposed with designing, planning, and managing Port Takola marina and waterfront community in Krabi, Thailand. This pioneering project will be a low-density development featuring a 250 berths yacht marina, waterfront residences, health and wellness facilities and a shopping village, located on the coast of Baan Laem Pho, Tambol Sai Thai, in Muang District.

The estate has been owned by the family for several generations. It was originally granted to Phraya Gangadharadhipati, the former governor of Krabi, Phang Nga and Mandala of Chumphon and Surat Thani, who also served as a privy councilor for HRH King Rama VI of Thailand. Upon his retirement, the governor was granted first and second title deeds to two plots of land with an approximate total area of 300 acres. This was used as a coconut plantation until his passing in 1943, after which his heirs continued to use the property for agricultural purposes.

Now, as Krabi has grown into an international tourist destination, the family estate has naturally increased in value due to both its ideal location on the coast in the central Muang District, and its rich surroundings. To the east is the Andaman Sea that forms part of Haad Noppharat Thara and Phi Phi Archipelago National Marine Park, while to the west is a protected conservation area of mangrove forest. The north side of the property borders the Jilad River, directly opposite the office of the Krabi Provincial Administration, the H.T.M.S Lanta museum and the main tourist ferry pier. To the south of the property lies the geological miracle of the 75 million-year-old gastropod fossil beach and 5km further along the coast is Ao Nang, Krabi’spremier tourist destination.

The company commissions a reputed international marina consultant to develop the marina master plan, and also working with closely with local stakeholders, to ensure the project’s success.

The care of your boat is Port Takola’s number one priority: all 260 berths will have full length fingers and extra wide concourses will maximize convenience while loading and docking. 24 hour security, refueling service, fresh water, electricity supply and disposal of waste, grey and black water come as standard.

The dry storage area and boatyard will be serviced by state of the art boat handling equipment and provide technical services such as yacht repair and cleaning.

Ashore, the Capitainerie and Café du Port will be dedicated to ensuring an enjoyable stay for all marina guests. The Capitainerie will feature five-star hotel standard bathroom facilities; a laundry service; and a lounge area with computers and wi-fi internet access. The Café du Port bistro is designed with the enjoyment of yachtsmen in mind and will serve local and international cuisine in a beautiful garden overlooking the harbor.

Port Takola will be developed in phases. The marina’s phase one is now open.

Port Takola Residences

The Marina & Waterfront Community is carefully planned with an emphasis on a marine leisure lifestyle with tranquility to nature. Unlike most density residential developments, residences here are designed to have private space within a verdant landscape and beautiful canals so that one can enjoy a tranquil living in a pleasing environment. Botanic gardens, jogging & cycling trails, and a fitness center are just some features to keep you in harmony and a healthy lifestyle.

The residential developments will be an integral part of the Port Takola lifestyle experience. We expect these developments to start as the marina progresses and proceed along in tandem with the marina.

The estate is blessed with a diverse biology which includes 2 kms of shoreline, an everglade and a tropical forest. These environmental mixtures are the habitat and food source for various birds and marine animals.

Port Takola values these natural environments. The estate’s topography is carefully studied to implement as guideline for master planning. Resort and residential developments are also structured to be harmonious with the surrounding nature and ecological system.
