Sixteen magnificent golden teak stilted buildings linked together by long verandahs make up this summerhouse built by King Rama VI in 1923.

Known as the 'Palace of Love and Hope', the original style and design was drafted by the king himself, while Italian architect Ercole Manfredi drew the final plans. Styled in a Thai-Victoria fashion, it features high ceilings, delicate fretwork and 1,080 concrete pillars.

The building are divided into three groups with the Samoson Sevakamataya group, which included a pavilion-like theatre, an audience hall, an office for the Royal Aide-de-Camp General and a room for night duty chamberlains, being used for official business.

The Bisansagara group was the personal residence of the king and consisted of a Royal Suite with an office, a bedroom, a dressing room, and a bathroom.

The Samudabiman group constituted the inner court and all men except the king were forbidden to enter. It served as the residence for the queen, with residences for her sister and entourage, a beach pavilion, and a dining pavilion where the king Vajiravudh usually ate his lunch.
