Villa Name: YL Residence No 17

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.

There will never be a case of being disturbed by other guests, their children, piped music that irks, menus that donʼt appeal or pool side battles for sun chairs as the only other guests will be friends or family. This attention to detail combined with the exclusivity and service has already made YL Residence a favorite with celebrities, jet setters and captains of industry as it offers a real escape from the outside world, with a level of privacy that no hotel can match.

YL Residence is the perfect location for larger events and has become a preferred destination for launches, weddings, corporate events and parties of all descriptions.
