Koh Samui - YL Residence No 17

Koh Samui - YL Residence No 17



YL Residence No 17 is hidden away in Koh Samui’s most charming and tranquil corner bordered by soft white sands and the gentle turquoise waters of the Gulf of Siam.

Designed by esteemed architect Martin Palleros and described by Elle Décor magazine as " A place to truly experience a piece of heaven”.  The aesthetic is clean, minimalist with a nod to Southern Thai design. The furnishings have all been specially created by Antonio “Budji” Layug, which are both elegant and emphasise the use of sustainable, renewable resources that has made “Budji” a pioneer in eco furniture and design.

The result is a harmonious balance between ethnic grace, cosmopolitan elegance and simplicity.

Spacious elegant communal areas compliment the ten individual dwellings with a 22 meter inky black pool on the beachfront. The pool house, club house, games room, main house, restaurant and cocktail bar all provide the perfect environment in which to relax or indeed party.

With a full time staff of 25, YL Residence's team include villa hosts, European chef, two Thai chefs, bartender, 24 hour concierge, butlers, masseuses, housekeepers, chauffeurs and 24 hour security guards all resplendent in uniforms designed by Richard James of Savile Row. As only one group can stay at YL Residence at any time, the focus is on that group with everything tailor made around their desires and requests.
