An interesting choice of words - 'enhancing the hillside'. It was far more enhanced when it was in its natural state. More and more 'enhancements' appearing between Kalim and Kamala as well. Soon the Coast Road will be just another concrete jungle.

Patong a home away from home - now there's a slogan.

Ree , have anlook at the amari development before you judge It is of fantastic quality it would be just wonderful if other patong based business people would have the same quality vision

@Wm, Your Vision is colored. In Patong the construction is/are nicknamed the Dovecot's. That opinion is based on looks the looks only. But if you make such an "violent attack" on nature on such a wonderful & prime location you don't have Phuket's wellbeing or future in mind.

Can someone enlighten me? What is a free-form swimming pool?

Sounds like marketing twaddle!

Free form in relation to pools generally refers to the ability to build any shape as they are formed by sprayed concrete, shot blast or similar, built up in layers against a backing support and hand shaped or finished.
