“Watch out for the falling coconuts” has become somewhat of a tagline for The Huay Yai Riverside.

That’s not to say that you are in danger living there; more of an indication that the area manages to achieve that much sought after combination – rural living virtually on the doorstep of the city.

This luxurious villa development is the project run by Lex Granaada a native of Holland, Lex is a former professional photographer (do you ever stop being a photographer?) with a passion for interior design.

A flair for what is esthetically pleasing is certainly prevalent in the show home at The Huay Yai Riverside.

Lex is something of a perfectionist. He studies every last detail of the project from start to finish.



“I’m always here and generally thinking ahead of our contractors and what pitfalls they may come up against with logical answers, right down to the smallest of things it has to be perfect. I still think like a customer and notice everything. “I first came here in 1971 and like many others fell in love with this beautiful country and from that moment I had this vision for a project.


“We started looking for the right piece of land eight or nine years ago looking at various locations throughout Thailand from North to South but we settled on this location as I believe from a commercial point of view The Eastern Seaboard was where we needed to be and I still firmly believe that was the correct decision”.



As I spoke with Lex he had the country rock group The Eagles playing in the background. Their track Peaceful, Easy Feeling pretty much sums up what he is bidding to achieve at THYR.

Lex calls himself a ‘SSD’ Small Scale Developer but by spending time with him you can tell he is just being modest and thinks much bigger than that.

He speaks several European languages – German, Spanish, Italian, French, English and his native Dutch – so if you are interested to know more about his project there is an excellent chance you will be able to discover more about THYR without fears of misunderstanding.



The Huay Yai Riverside is set in lush tropical countryside surroundings just southbound out of Pattaya. The area although still very quiet is the perfect location for easy laid back living and has all the modern comforts at hand.

New 7/11s are on your doorstep as well as many fantastic restaurants serving both Thai and International cuisine and if golf is your thing, you are right in the heart of it with some of Thailand’s best courses including Siam Country Club and Phoenix only a short drive (in a car, not the golf shot) away.

The whole area is quickly becoming an upmarket suburb of Pattaya with huge infrastructure being put into place and new toll roads providing easy access. THYR is very close to the new road planned to hit the Sukhumvit near The Ambassador. It’s close enough for convenience but far enough to avoid traffic noise pollution.

There is also a new French/English International School planned nearby.

The development itself has a real personal fee about it. Its size is a strong part of its appeal as it gives a feeling of privacy backed up by 24-hour security, electric gates and on-wall CCTV.



With the land elevation it creates a light, airy atmosphere and you really feel at home in the tropics.

In total there are five plots, two of which are already sold. The project has an entry level of Bt7.9m.

That figure can only increase in the not-too-distant future. Plot sizes vary from 523sqm to 742sqm and this is reflected in the price.

Rental is also an option but limited with villas starting at Bt70,000 a month.



Everything about The Huay Yai Riverside exudes quality, not only in its design but also its finish to European standards. It will provide high-end, exclusive and luxurious living in a tropical setting with the best parts of city life just a short drive away.

Expected completion of The Huay Yai Riverside is early July 2018. If the project interests you, you can be sure that time will evaporate quickly.
