Designed by esteemed architect Martin Palleros and described by Elle Decor 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 emphasize 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.

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.
