To start planning your vacation to COMO Point Yamu
Balanced on the tip of Cape Yamu in Phuket with views out to the Andaman Sea and Phang Nga Bay, lies the stunning COMO Point Yamu. With contemporary interiors, a world class wellness retreat and fantastic restaurants, this is Thai luxury at its best.
Located on Cape Yamu, a beautiful tropical peninsula on Phuket’s east coast, Point Yamu provides a retreat with a view. Its unique designs and artifacts dotted around the property make for a fascinating stay. Each item has a story to tell and a reason for being there.
There is a particular emphasis on wellness in regards to facilities whether it be sunrise yoga sessions or the calming lighting, a stay here is designed to help you relax. Of course, the attentive staff are on hand to cater to your every whim to ensure that relaxation is achieved.
All 79 rooms and suites and 27 private luxury villas take design inspiration from the cool blues and turquoises of the Andaman Sea, framed with floor to ceiling windows. Nearly every room benefits from a private terrace with mesmerising views across Phang Nga Bay or over the Cape, while the larger pool suites and private villas boast individual private swimming pools.
There are a number of dining options at Point Yamu, including delicately crafted Italian cuisine, heady and fragrant Thai dishes or for those looking to maximize energy and wellbeing a selection of healthy and utterly delicious COMO Shambhala menus. For those wanting to further their pampering body and mind, the spa offers holistic treatments alongside a yoga studio, steam rooms, Jacuzzi and fully equipped gym.
Although there is no beach at Point Yamu, the panoramic views from the resort make you feel like you are on a ship and more than make up for the lack of beach. Being away from the beach also means that it is much quieter than other areas of Phuket. However, the resort do provide a boat shuttle to a beach on a nearby island which is approximately 20-30 minutes away.
The accommodation ranges from the beautiful smaller one bedroom pool villas to larger four bedroom pool villas; these are all full of natural light flooding in from views over the Andaman Sea or the Cape’s lush green surroundings. The Suites all boast beautiful terraces and verandas, separate living areas and plenty of space to luxuriantly lounge in the sun.

Recently opened in July 2014, Como has thought of everything and every added touch goes unnoticed, particularly in the restaurants. This contemporary build has 360 degree views that are undoubtedly the most impressive in Phuket, looking over the sparkling water of Phang Gna bay. The rooms are wonderfully light and spacious and In keeping with COMOs focus on wellbeing, the Como Shambhala Retreat offers holistic, Asian inspired treatments and therapies.

This is definitely a grower. You may be dismayed on arrival by a big grey building with a mesh like exterior, which for me almost resembled a prison. But keep the faith and instead admire all the detailed thought out designs, all of which have a story to tell, ask a member of staff to explain. Don't come here expecting a resort-like hotel, it has much more of a city feel to it, with rooms off corridors. They are currently constructing villas which may be a better option of you are after the more resort feel. But the rooms are quite spectacular, very spacious and light. Choose one with a pool and a bigger outdoor area. But for me, the biggest highlight of the hotel is the views. From every angle you look you can see out to sea and have views of the islands. It really is rather wonderful. So if you're not afraid of a bit of quirkiness and are after some 360 views, a few nights spent here would not go amiss.

Arriving at Point Yamu I did feel initially overwhelmed by the enormity of the architecture with its striking pillars in the lobby and the starkness of the clean lines. However the longer I spent wondering through the hotel, noticing all the unique design elements and stunning surrounding views, the warmer it felt and the more I liked it. It is the type of hotel, for me, that takes a little adjusting to but once I did all of its strengths in terms of design were instantly apparent. On top of this the food and service here were top notch. We had dinner in the Italian restaurant - La Sirena - and had a tomato and mozzarella salad and meat selection to start which rivalled anything that I have had in Italy itself - it was delicious!
