During a break in the entertainment, key members of the regatta
organising group presented detailed information about this new
yachting event and invited guests to pose questions. Then the
partying went on in earnest into the early hours of the morning.
“The yacht club is a perfect waterfront venue for a party; we’ve
got one of the best locations on Phuket,” said Commodore
Grenville Fordham, adding, “Anyone, member or non-member,
who is planning to hold a private party can contact me; we then
work together to put a plan and a price in place.”

David Roberts
David Roberts, CEO of Aedas International
(architects) in Hong Kong and partner in
DaVinci Ristorante Pizzeria in Nai Harn,
explains how la dolce vita (the good life) is all
in its design.



Where are you from? I was born in Wales, and then lived in Birmingham
until the age of 14. During the 'winter of discontent' in England, with
everyone on strike, my family moved to Tasmania, Australia. In 1988,
working as an architect in Melbourne, I was offered a job opportunity in
Hong Kong, where I remain.
When did you first come to Phuket and what made you decide to stay
on? I came to Phuket in 1992 to join the King's Cup sailing regatta with a
bunch of Hong Kong guys and fell in love with it. For me it was the fresh air
and natural beauty, not the nightlife. These days, I spend about one week a
month here.
You've recently built a villa in Phuket. What made you decide to build
a villa and live here part-time? I'd been visiting Phuket often over the
years and bought my first villa here in 2005. Five years ago I thought it was
time to put some roots down, and began building a three-bedroom villa
on one rai of land initially; we've since expanded the plot into four and
a quarter rai. The villa is complete with a cinema and games room, wine         What do you like most about living in Phuket? The air quality is fantastic
