“Perched on a hill with expansive views across the tranquil waters of the Andaman Sea, COMO Point Yamu is a chic place to forget about the world. The hotel’s spectacular entrance hall - a water pathway dotted with large paving stones - sets the tone for the rest of the resort’s serene, cocoon-like ambience. All the rooms partner a crisp white palette with sea-inspired shades of blue and green, while the more luxurious offer generous outdoor space and their own private pool. Like its sister hotel in Bangkok, COMO Point Yamu encourages guests to enjoy an active, healthy stay - if they so desire. The two restaurants have a health-conscious menu alongside normal dishes, activities including pilates, yoga and bike rides are scheduled every day, and the award-winning spa promises to detoxify with minimal effort required. The hotel’s swimming pool - which stretches three pools long - is a particular highlight worthy of an Instagram post or two.”
