Set on 12.5 acres of frangipani landscaped gardens, YL Residence No.17 has a 450-meter beachfront and is situated at Natien beach on the Southern coast of Koh Samui with a virtually private beach.

Designed by esteemed architect Martin Palleros and described by Elle Décor magazine as " A place to truly experience a piece of heaven”.

This extraordinary property is able to accommodate parties of up to 20 guests providing exclusive use to all facilities and staff during your stay.

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.

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.

It is in effect a private hotel, however our guests are not restricted by normal hotel regulations.

The advantages of staying at YL over even the most opulent hotel are quite simple and afford guests the freedom to do what they want, when they want.

We stayed at YL Residence for 4 days and 3 nights for our wedding with 18 guests (totaling 20), and it will sit at the top of the tree for our best hotel experience so far. The whole team deliver first class, personalized service in the lap of luxury, and we wanted for nothing.

There are 10 rooms, 4 large and 6 studio size. All are immaculately clean, as is all the amenities such as the games room, large dining area and the pool house. The master bedroom (the owner's residence) is stunning in size, layout and decor. The main bedroom is adjoined to the lounge/kitchen area with all amenities one would desire. 

Reuben (Head Chef) and his team prepare magnificent meals to request, and the three group dinners they prepared were of the highest standard. All the service staff were dedicated to ourselves and all our guests every need. Even those guests staying outside the YL Residence were welcomed with equal service and attention. Early check-ins were allowed (and encouraged), and late checkouts were organized to suit flights.

This is a very special and private hotel at the quiet end of Koh Samui, with a sense of absolute relaxation and luxury. Whether it is for a small business group, or a party with friends, or a specialized holiday, we'd recommend YL Residence to be one of the best hotels you will experience.
