Point Yamu by COMO is located on Cape Yamu, a peaceful peninsula on the east side of Phuket. The resort overlooks the limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and the Andaman Sea. 

The resort comprises 106 rooms and private villas, a 100m swimming pool, a COMO Shambhala Retreat with eight treatment rooms, including one beauty treatment room and yoga studio offering yoga, Pilates and Asian-inspired therapies, Italian and Thai restaurants and a child-friendly interactive learning area. Private residences with access to all Point Yamu’s facilities are also now available to purchase. The resort is located 20 minutes by car from Phuket International Airport.

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. 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.
