More than 100 distinctions were presented to the most outstanding real estate in Bangkok, Samui, Hua Hin, Khao Yai, the Eastern Seaboard and Phuket
• Ananda Development, Sansiri, Charn Issara Development, The Riviera Group, MontAzure and Major Development took home the biggest awards
• Thailand's 'retail queen' Supaluck Umpujh named Real Estate Personality of the Year

The 12th annual PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, supported by Thailand's leading property site DDproperty.com, have revealed on Friday evening (15 September) the winning and highly commended companies and projects of the year to celebrate world-class design and construction across the kingdom.

Ananda Development won Best Developer, winning the top prize for the first time in the 12-year history of the Thailand Property Awards, the country's biggest and longest-running real estate awards programme.

Known for its ambitious "urban technology ecosystem" platform that aims to provide consumers with fresh urban living solutions, Ananda Development also collected two other accolades in luxury condo development and design for its acclaimed Ashton Residence 41 project in Bangkok.

"With passion and determination to improve living standards in Thailand, Ananda Development has made strides with its 'UrbanTech' agenda for its residential and commercial projects, leading the path for Thai developers to push for smarter and more sustainable developments," said the independent judging panel led by incumbent chairwoman Suphin Mechuchep, managing director of JLL Thailand.

Meanwhile, Sansiri's introduction of co-living innovations to its condominium projects has paid off, as the company walked away with four golden trophies – the most for any shortlisted developer – including one for Best High-Rise High End Condo Development (Bangkok).

Sansiri also received a Special Recognition in Corporate Social Responsibility – sharing the CSR accolade with two-time winners The Riviera Group and Sena Development – for its commitment to environment, sustainability, and youth development and empowerment.

Two former Best Developer title holders each won a 'Best of Thailand' award: Charn Issara Development for its Baan Sita Wan project in Khao Yai, which was hailed as the Best Housing Development (Thailand); and Major Development for its much-anticipated MARQUE Sukhumvit ultra luxury condo venture, winner of Best Condo Development (Thailand).

Other big winners of the evening included Phuket-based MontAzure, collecting the honour for Best Mixed Use Development, a new addition to the awards this year. Elsewhere, the six-time nominee Origin group wins in the exciting Eastern Seaboard competition for Knightsbridge The Ocean Sriracha by Origin Sathorn Co., Ltd., taking the prize for Best Luxury Condo Development, and Park24 by Proud Residences Co., Ltd., winner of Best Condo Landscape Architectural Design.

A total of 39 awards and over 60 highly commended distinctions were presented to more than 100 finalists, demonstrating the continued growth of the country's biggest real estate awards competition. More than 40 companies were recognised for their developments located in Bangkok, Phuket, Samui, Hua Hin, Khao Yai and the Eastern Seaboard.

"It is incredible that after 12 years the Thailand Property Awards should still be breaking records and yet here we are with a very strong line-up of finalists," said Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, during his opening remarks.

"In order to arrive at the final shortlist of over 100 entries, the independent panel of judges had to work from a long list of over 250 eligible entries and completing more than 60 site inspections," he added. "It was a challenge for the judging panel and we could not have been more delighted to recognise the achievements of Thailand's real estate sector."

The black-tie gala dinner and awarding ceremony took place at Plaza Athenee Bangkok (a Royal Meridien hotel), attended by more than 500 guests and VIPs, including Thailand's 'retail queen' Supaluck Umpujh, chairwoman of The Mall Group, and the visionary behind such iconic shopping centres including The Siam Paragon, The Emporium, and The EmQuartier.

Supaluck was named the 2017 Real Estate Personality of the Year by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report magazine for her trailblazing and lasting contributions to the country's retail and lifestyle real estate segment.

Kamolpat Swaengkit, Thailand country manager of DDproperty.com, a subsidiary of the PropertyGuru Group, said: "We are proud to support the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards because we want to showcase the best in Thai real estate across many key locations and segments. Consumers look to the Thailand Property Award-winners to help them in making real estate decisions, whether they're first-time buyers/renters or serial investors."

The 12th PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2017 was supported by co-sponsors JLL Thailand and Crystal Lagoons; official airline partner Thai Airways; official portal partner DDproperty.com, Thailand's leading property site; media partners Oxford Business Group, Living Etc, Phuket News, Pattaya Today, and PropertyGuru Property Report, Asia's leading luxury real estate, architecture and design publication; supporting associations American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand and British Chamber of Commerce Thailand; official supplier GFour Fine Wine; and the awards' official supervisor BDO, the world's fifth largest auditing and accountancy firm, led by co-managing partner Paul Ashburn.
