Phuket continues to go upmarket with the soft launch of COMO Hotels & Resorts’ Point Yamu by COMO. A 106-room resort on Phuket, Point Yamu’s which includes a COMO Shambhala wellness retreat, a 100m infinity pool and two world-class restaurants (Thai and Italian) overlooking the turquoise Phang Nga Bay, which offers dramatic, dreamy views – you could stay forever.
The hotel has been designed by Paola Navone, the famous Italian furniture designer, making it a truly contemporary launch on the Thai island. The collaboration sees COMO’s signature clean lines and pared-back, contemporary style united with the Italian designer’s eclectic, colourful approach and the use of local materials. Expect a dazzling palette of bright aquamarines and hot oranges, with Thai artisanal techniques such as traditional wood tiling and woven rattan adding texture. The ocean-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows in each room, offers spectacular views of the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.
Uniquely situated on the island’s eastern side providing a much more peaceful retreat (most resorts are on the Western side of Phuket). The seas are also more tranquil making them much better for diving.
