    Pattaya Police say they are strictly enforcing the operating times of entertainment establishments following the fatal shooting of a teenager at an after-hours drinking den in the early hours of Sept. 11.

    Anuwat Suksamran (alias Tee Lai Khopai) was shot to death and another man was seriously wounded outside the Teng Si bar in Rungland Village after a dispute between two quarreling factions quickly escalated into a gun fight. Police are still hunting numerous individuals who are wanted in connection with the incident.

    On Sept. 12, Pol. Col. Saranyapong Maithongkunthorn, Chief Inspector of Pattaya Police, led officers on a dawn patrol of the city’s main entertainment areas and known late-night drinking spots to ensure establishments were following the law and obeying permitted opening times. Most were found to be in compliance but owners of those flouting the regulations were invited to Pattaya police station to face prosecution under the law.

    Pol. Col. Saranyapong said the recent alcohol fed shooting tarnished Pattaya’s image and facilitation of illegal late night drinking would not be tolerated.

    Potholes and cracked pavements could soon be a thing of the past on Thepprasit Road as the city’s busy southern thoroughfare gets set for major restoration and improvement work over the coming months.

    Pattaya Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawad led a team of officials to inspect damaged sections of the road on Sept. 11 as well as surveying the current progress of remedial roadwork, which started in June this year.

    Motorists and pedestrians have been complaining about the condition of the road surface and neglected footpaths for some time, leading City Hall to earmark a multi-million baht budget for repairs and improvements.

    Chokdee Tonglee Joint Venture has been contracted to carry out the work and has forecast a completion date of April 2020. Along with repairs to damaged road surfaces, the work will also include the installation of new road markings and signage, leading to a safer commuting experience for all.

    Hot on the heels of their massive win of 14 awards at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2019 in May of this year, the Riviera Group was once again thrust into the limelight at the 15th Thailand Property Awards.

    Organised by PropertyGuru, the extravagant gala night was held at the Athenee Bangkok on 8 August 2019 where Thailand’s finest and most accomplished developers were honoured for their achievements. The glamourous affair was also a celebration of the best projects, designs and innovations within the industry during the past year.

    The five-hour awards ceremony and gala dinner, one of the most awaited real estate industry events in Thailand, was graced by Mom Ratchawongse Chatu Mongol Sonakul, Thailand’s Minister of Labour and former Governor of the Bank of Thailand, who encouraged property developers in Thailand to create a safe and progressive environment for all real estate and construction professionals.

    A handful of reputable Pattaya developers of houses, tropical villas, and low-rise structures, all the way up to high-rise, high-end luxury condominiums, attended the prize giving ceremonies.

    Most notable amongst them was Winston and Sukanya Gale, owners and founders of The Riviera Group.

    There were no surprises when the winners were announced. The Riviera Monaco by The Riviera Group won the most prestigious and sought after Best High Rise Condo Development (Eastern Seaboard) Award.

    As an added recognition, The Riviera Jomtien received the Highly Commended Award in the same category.

    More accolades poured in as The Riviera Jomtien won the Highly Commended award in the Best Condo Architectural Design (Resort) category.

    To top off the list of prizes collected by the Riviera Group that night, The Riviera Jomtien won the Best Digital Performance Condo Development (Provincial) Award.

    Side by side, Winston and Sukanya Gale are a major force in shaping the future of the property market in Thailand.

    The road to success hasn’t been an easy one for Winston and Sukanya Gale. Having proven himself to be a successful developer in his native UK, in both residential and commercial buildings, Winston decided to bring his expertise to Thailand to further seek his fortune.

    Here he was destined to meet and marry Sukanya, the love of his life. They have 2 handsome sons and an adorable daughter.

    For the past 7 years, Winston and Sukanya, together with their team of dedicated and extremely talent men and women, embarked on a journey to create, develop and build award-winning world-class luxury condominiums in Pattaya.

    Their first project, The Palm (3 billion baht), was completed in 2015, followed by The Riviera Wongamat (3.6 billion baht) launched in 2018 and the just completed The Riviera Jomtien (4.5 billion baht).

    The Riviera Monaco (2 billion baht) structure is already scraping the sky on Jomtien Beach and is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

    On September 14, Winston Gale signed a contract with Supasawat Siriplangkanon, MD of JWS Construction to commence construction of The Riviera Ocean Drive. The 2 billion-baht project is scheduled to be completed in 2022. The Riviera Group and JWS Construction have a long and strong business relationship throughout the years, having cooperated in the successful construction of The Riviera Wongamat, The Riviera Jomtien and the on-going work on The Riviera Monaco.

    Winston Gale (The Riviera Group) and Supasawat Siriplangkanon (JWS Construction) congratulate each other after signing the billion baht construction contract.

    During this whole period, The Riviera Group has maintained a very strong financial relationship with Siam Commercial Bank. Their staunch business cooperation is proven by the fact that the SCB granted loans of more than 3 billion baht to the Riviera Group so far.

    Asked when would they take a period of respite from planning more developments, Winston and Sukanya said, “We are extremely proud and thankful that The Riviera Group is recognized for our determination and dedication to build world class luxury condominiums in Pattaya.

    “With strong financial backing together with the privilege of working with the best team of award-winning architects and designers, we have become a major force in helping to shape the future of the property market in Thailand and are determined to continue to do so for many years to come.”

    The Riviera Group family celebrates another memorable evening at the 15th Thailand Property Awards.

    A few months ago, Noi Emmerson, the Charity Chairperson of the Pattaya Sports Club, received a request from teachers at Baan Mabprachan School requesting help solving the problem of rain splashing into their classrooms, compounded by flooding in front of the classrooms.

    A few months ago, Noi Emmerson, the Charity Chairperson of the Pattaya Sports Club, received a request from teachers at Baan Mabprachan School requesting help solving the problem of rain splashing into their classrooms, compounded by flooding in front of the classrooms.

    Noi Emmerson, along with Golf Chairman Jack Moseley and other committee members, inspected the situation at the school to determine the cause and decide what could be done to alleviate the hardships affecting the children.

    Mrs. Kwanruean Salaewong, VP Tim Knight, Ingkarat Chaimongkon, Peter Malhotra, Dr. Veera Ladnongkun, Noi Emmerson, Willem Lasonder and Dave Smith pose in the mini garden that is part and parcel of the beautification of the school project.

    It was determined that the building did not have an awning running alongside the building to prevent rain from splashing directly into the windows. To make matters worse, the pavement outside was uneven and needed to be raised to a higher level to prevent flooding.

    Without hesitation the PSC executive committee approved a budget of 100,000 baht required for the renovation and building work, enabling the constructors to get the work done in record time.

    On Sept 5, 2019, President Pratheep S. Malhotra ‘Peter’ led a delegation of PSC committee members, including VP Tim Knight, Charity Chair Noi Emmerson, Secretary Willem Lasonder, PR Chair Dave Smith and GM Ingkarat Chaimongkon to the Baan Mabprachan School to inspect the completed work and officially hand over the project to the school.

    They were welcomed by Mrs. Kwanruean Salaewong, Director of Mabprachan Kindergarten School and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Veera Ladnongkun, Chairman of the School Commission and serving as District Governor of the Lions Club International District 310 C Thailand. Together they guided the visitors on a tour of the school and their facilities.

    The PSC has supported the school with many of their needs throughout the years, most recently being the purchase of dining tables and benches for the school’s canteen at a cost of 77,000 baht. The club has also co-sponsored many other projects for the school, notably the clean water filtration system.

    Kindergarten children dressed in their smart school uniforms came out from their classes to say thank you to the benefactors and gathered for a group photograph.

    Dr. Veera thanked the Pattaya Sports Club for their generosity while Peter thanked the school for giving the PSC the opportunity to serve the community by helping the children with their needs.

    He said, “The Pattaya Sports Club’s ideals are to Promote Sports and Support Local Charities. By doing so, our members feel a sense of pride and satisfaction knowing that they have done good deeds for the benefit of others.”
