COMO Point Yamu

Living Etc - - TRAVEL / ETC -

The lowdown A designer haven on a hill­side over­look­ing Phang Nga Bay. Best for He­donists in search of tran­quil­lity (plus some top-class cui­sine). The lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Ital­ian style maven Paola Navone and the COMO Group, Point Yamu com­prises 79 sleekly de­signed rooms (and 27 pri­vate vil­las avail­able to buy, should you be so in­clined). Most have sea views, a ter­race and a spa bath­room and the suites come with pri­vate pools. Be­ing a Navone project, the Mediter­ranean in­flu­ence is well to the fore, so turquoise hues and ocean blues dom­i­nate, while nau­ti­cal stripes and loose linen up­hol­stery add to the re­laxed, sen­sual vibe. Lo­cated pool­side is Ital­ian restau­rant La Sirena; the Thai Nah­myaa is in­side; while nu­tri­tional, well-be­ing cui­sine is avail­able up­stairs as part of the COMO Shamb­hala Re­treat, which boasts treat­ment rooms, Thai mas­sage al­coves, steam rooms, Jacuzzi and a gym. If that wasn’t enough pam­per­ing, com­pli­men­tary ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude yoga, tai chi, Pi­lates, flower ar­rang­ing and boat rides to beaches on nearby is­lands. And re­lax…
