While west coast Phuket beaches are the most frequented, tourist numbers get thinner and hotels less concentrated along the east coast to offer peaceful respite, a window into originality and picture perfect beaches. Here, located on Cape Yamu the new and luxurious Point Yamu by Como Resort Phuket overlook paradisaical seascapes.
Its 79 accommodations are grouped into Sino designer rooms, villas and suites with colour schemes mimicking the turquoise blue outdoors. Each one tantalize the senses with breathtaking sea views with their entire front walls opening to a private terrace. The 45 sq.m Bay Room, or light filled 55 sq.m Verandah Room are the most economical options.
In the suite category both indoor and outdoor space increases. The Bay Suite is for example 100 sq.m which include the most amazing blue mosaic bathroom and a living area extending outdoors to a wide sea facing terrace equipped with plump day beds. The Verandah Suite has the same features and facilities, but is bigger at 120 sq.m. and in the 144 sq.m Yamu Suite you will wake up with your feet etched against a picture perfect view of exotic Phang Nga Bay.
All the higher accommodation categories feature a private pool and sundeck presiding over the bay. It starts with the 123 sq.m the Bay Pool Suite and 157 sq.m Verandah Pool Suite featuring designer living rooms, bathrooms with a free standing circular bath tubs next to a bay view window, and a 20 sq.m private pool facing the islets of Phang Nga Bay.
Point Yamu is of course part of the Como Hotel group which is no newcomer to luxury family getaways and the 2 and 3 bedroom villas brings the comforts of home straight to Phuket. Their mosaic bathrooms and sassy living areas leading to a patio with a pool and the Andaman Sea sparkling below hail straight from a designer magazine.
