“My first visit to Samui really took my breath away when I first discovered Thailand’s tropical island paradise. One day in 1989, I decided to embark on a long journey from Bangkok to the island. In no way were those early journeys a chore, as the voyage from the mainland to the island by ferry takes in small islands dotted around Samui and the fresh sea air whilst on the boat were a small taste of things to come. Fortunately today there is an airport and a direct flight from the urban chaos of Bangkok to the serenity of the island, which takes under an hour.

Samui has a distinctive character, a unique spirit...that is what drew me to this paradise over two decades ago. The locals of the island have always considered themselves slightly detached from the mainland and there is an inner strength and independent attitude that prevails - perhaps the island’s soul has influenced them as it did me, and other sun seekers who migrate to the island today. It is one place where I can let my hair down and be at peace.

This was the Samui I fell in love with and what I have instilled at YL Residence No. 17. The essence of the island that stole my breath away years ago still calms and exhilarates in equal measures - the spirit of adventure still remains, as one can easily escape to silent coves, serene private beaches, secret gardens and discover something new off the beaten track. I have tried to retain this small piece of Samui’s tranquility at YL Residence and make myself and my guests feel totally at ease. A place to truly to call home.”
 

Welcome to Koh Samui

Nestled in the Gulf of Thailand and once a haven for fishermen, Koh Samui is Thailand’s third largest island. Nature abounds in the “Coconut Island”—a place laden with white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, lush green vegetation, and warm and friendly people.

Visitors can explore the revered 15 metre tall Big Buddha Temple, Grandmother and Grandfather Rock’s strange formations, the sacred mummified monk at Kunaram Temple, or stroll around a local market or multicultural fishing village. Chaweng View provides the opportunity to soak in Chaweng Beach’s wonderful vistas. Fun-filled activities range from exhilarating elephant treks, golf and horseback riding on the beach, to jungle excursions in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or on a cable car, to mountain bike riding, hiking, and myriad water activities. World renowned for its diving and snorkelling, Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan are not to be missed. Home to 42 limestone islands containing secluded beaches, coral reefs, and forests filled with a wide array of flora, fauna and caves, Angthong National Marine Park is also popular. A peaceful, tranquil place in which to relax and unwind--Koh Samui.
