Mr. Chanin Vanijwongse is the CEO of Habitat Group Co., Ltd., one of the leading premium property-for-investment developers in Thailand. The company focuses on the upper-midscale and luxury residential market sectors, identifying clear market niches to create and deliver unique projects. The company strives to develop projects which are unique in character in terms of innovative design and functionality, and the Group’s success in this regard is underscored by winning multiple-awards for its developments in recent years. Habitat Group’s customercentric team ensures they offer attractive investment opportunities for all their buyers and foster customer loyalty with future investment prospects.

Mr. Chanin first entered the property industry in 2004 as a private investor. His first investment was the purchase of 80 Luxury condominiums and townhouses, which yielded a total revenue of more than 500 million baht within seven years.

With his experience and success in property investment, as well as his in-depth understanding of client needs, Mr. Chanin decided to move from being an individual investor to become a developer, founding Habitat Group in 2012. His very first own property development was in Pattaya. With his desire to create something unique and an investment that would deliver returns to buyers, Mr. Chanin invested in developing The Ville Jomtien Pool Villa – a collection of pool villas which sold out within two years, and were offered for rent, delivering a healthy ROI for investment buyers.

Following the success of The Ville Jomtien Pool Villa, Habitat Group has since launched five condominium projects for investment in the Pattaya area, including X2 Vibe Pattaya Seaphere, X2 Pattaya Oceanphere, BW Premier Bayphere, Bluphere Pattaya Managed By BW Premier Collection and Wyndham Atlas Wongamat Pattaya. As of today, all are nearly sold out.

Mr. Chanin extended his development sphere to Bangkok in 2017 with the launch of the super-luxury residence Leroy Ruamrudee, and the company’s first low-rise luxury condominium in the CBD, Walden Asoke. Leroy Ruamrudee has already sold out while Walden Asoke has booked 90% sales.

In 2018, Mr. Chanin will launch three new condominium developments, Walden Sukhumvit 39 (which was launched in September 2018), Walden Sukhumvit 31 and a hotel branded condominium-for-investment in Pattaya.

The Habitat Group has been successful in developing distinctive properties with inherent investment value, and that have received a tremendous response from buyers. Mr. Chanin has built the Group’s success on two main pillars:

  • Daring to be different; recognising potential market opportunities and creating new supply and thus demand, and prioritising the development’s concepts and value proposition, rather than competing on price.
  • Developing a professional management team and striving for excellence in all the Group does. Together, Habitat Group has created notable and innovative property developments that have received many accolades from home and abroad.

Six years since establishing Habitat Group, Mr. Chanin is still considered new blood in Thailand’s property industry.

As CEO, Mr. Chanin’s working philosophy is to lead from the front and enjoy what he does. He is an out-of-thebox thinker, always looking for new angles and ideas, has clear working goals and is detail-oriented. He fosters good relations with all employees, is open for feedback and thought-sharing, and this is a key part to the success of himself as CEO and also to Habitat Group.

Mr. Chanin has placed importance on both his career and personal life. Although he works hard, he makes time for family leisure trips domestically and abroad. He is fond of sports and exercise. His favourite sport is tennis.

Mr. Chanin graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in Portland, Oregon, USA. He continued his higher education in Thailand and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from Thammasart University and a Masters of Business Administration from Sasin School of Management, Chulalongkorn.
