Announcing Asia Pacific’s Best Property Professionals… Asia Pacific is the first region to be judged in the International Property Awards’ programme each year and can always be relied upon to set a very high benchmark. Our judges look for excellence in every single element of each entry, seeking innovation, sustainability, eco-awareness and an all-important cutting edge. I am delighted to report that they have not been disappointed. One of the most fiercely contested titles, Best Property Single Unit, goes to the Clearwater Group in Malaysia for ‘Blu Constellation’. This villa is not only highly luxurious but also exceedingly environmentally friendly throughout its entire design and build concept. Best Apartment was won by Singapore’s S P Setia International for ‘Eco Sanctuary’. Taking its inspiration from nature, this condominium offers a superb lifestyle with wide, open views and glorious natural surroundings. ‘Baan Citta’ by THE XSS in Thailand was the well-deserved winner of Best Interior Design Private Residence. Its living areas have been transformed into the ultimate spiritual paradise, giving its owners a feeling of infinite space. Very well done to these companies and all the other award winners listed within this book. Before signing off, I would like to remind all entrants that they are invited to attend our forthcoming Property & Hospitality Shows in Dubai and London. We also welcome other companies in related businesses as well as members of the public to broaden the networking opportunities even further. Please visit our website at www.propertyawards.net for full details of dates, locations and how to register.

For those times there’s our new SH Silent System which can be switched on in an instant. All the sensitivity and touch of a real Yamaha grand piano action and all the sound of a Yamaha CFX concert grand delivered through headphones... while others can watch TV or listen to their own music in the same room.
