One of the places in my Top 5 to visit at the moment is Phuket. I’ve seen so many beautiful snaps from friends’ visits, not to mention the gorgeous honeymoons and destination weddings we’ve seen on Polka Dot Bride. So when the news of the opening of Point Yamu by COMO on Cape Yamu, a peaceful peninsula on the east side of Phuket, turned up in my inbox – well, I was smitten.
The resort overlooks the limestone coasts of Phang Nga Bay – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and the Andaman Sea, and comprises of 106 rooms and private villas, a 100m swimming pool, a COMO Shambhala Retreat with eight treatment rooms, Italian and Thai restaurants and a child-friendly interactive learning area. Phew! What a list!
Point Yamu is COMO’s first resort in Thailand outside Bangkok and it is also the first property designed for COMO Hotels and Resorts by Italian design talent Paola Navone. Can anyone say chic?! 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.
If you’re one of the more actively inclined, Point Yamu offers adventure with biking through nearby villages and plantations, snorkelling and diving off remote islands, all under the guidance of expert, English-speaking guides.
The resort current has a fabulous opening offer which includes four nights for the price of three, or seven nights for the price of five for selected dates until 31 October 2014.
