Happy Chinese New Year (and Happy Valentine’s Day too!)

Note from the Editor

Chinese New Year is just around the corner! The lunar new year is made even more special this year, as it also falls on 14th February, known the world over as Valentine’s Day. We at Golf Malaysia Magazine wish all our readers Happy Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai. May the Year of the Tiger brings roaring health, luck, prosperity and joy into your life! :-)

So, to celebrate the double festivity (and the long weekend), why not take your family and loved ones for a short holiday at Phuket, Thailand? But do remember to pack in a copy of Golf Malaysia Magazine into your luggage to Phuket ya!

Phuket has something for everyone. Non-golfers can venture on exciting adventures to nearby tropical forests, show off their rock-climbing skills, snorkel in the beautiful Andaman Sea, take some serious island hopping excursions to the pristine Koh Phi Phi and even indulge in sunset cruises at Phang Na bay. 

As for we golfers, Phuket is a dream destination… it boasts PGA championship golf courses, picturesque beaches and – soon – yooPhuket, a first-class designer accommodation. This ultimate golf vacation destination, scheduled for completion in 2011, is nestled between three golf clubs with year-round play: The Phuket Country Club, Phuket’s original golfing venue that offers amazingly manicured nine-hole and 18-hole courses; the Loch Palm Golf Club, which is built around Crystal Lake, the largest body of water on any local course; and the Red Mountain Golf Course, which entices visitors with challenging fairways, unique red-soiled mountain ridges and dramatic views over the heart of the island.

yooPhuket, comprising 256 stylishly designed apartments and penthouses, boasts panoramic views of these lush fairways and a breathtaking lake. The properties feature state-of-the-art technology for the living area, the kitchen, bedrooms and beyond. The development includes a fine dining poolside restaurant, a fully equipped business centre, and a 24-hour concierge service.

A perfect golf getaway, yooPhuket is available for both full and fractional ownership from the Absolute World Group from just US$64,890. Each yooPhuket fractional owner (and their guests) also has the use of a fabulous 31-foot speedboat, including a captain and hostess, for three days each week. To register your interest and receive more information about freehold or fractional ownership, please visit www.yooPhuket.com.
