On the easternmost tip of Phuket’s Cape Yamu, COMO Point Yamu serves as the front-row seat to a visual spectacle that unfolds daily over the enchanting Phang Nga Bay.
The hotel’s Bay Room is not just a space for relaxation and retreat, but an invitation to enjoy mesmerizing sea views, an ever-changing sky, and the breathtakingly rugged silhouettes of the distant mountainous islands.
Getting to this luxury haven is a breeze, thanks to its convenient location just a 25-minute drive from Phuket Airport – itself just a seven-hour flight from the Middle East via Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Doha.
But once you step into the premises, you’re transported into a world that feels both isolated and infinite, tethered to the ocean yet separate from the rush of the outside world.
This journey begins the moment you approach the Bay Room via picture-perfect outdoor corridors – the resort’s industrial architectural contours offering an interesting contrast against the backdrop of the lush tropical environment.
Then, the moment you step inside, you’re greeted by an awe-inspiring view of Phang Nga Bay.
This breathtaking panorama, framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, unfolds as the day progresses, with daytime hues soon replaced by a star-studded canvas as night descends.
An expansive private balcony wraps around the room, flowing all the way into the bathroom.
Whether you choose to sunbathe on the plush loungers, indulge in alfresco dining, or simply sit back and take in the sea under the stars, the room and balcony are versatile spaces designed to accentuate your trip.
Step back in, and you’re welcomed by a masterfully designed interior that complements the spectacular view. Crafted by the renowned Paola Navone, the design reflects a keen understanding of the locale’s rich Thai culture.
Blue and turquoise design accents, mimicking the shades of the sea and sky, are beautifully offset by cool white and grey Sino-patterned tiles.
This colour palette, though subtle, creates a striking aesthetic harmony with the seascape outside, immersing you within what feels like a living, breathing watercolour.
Central to the room is the choice between a king bed or two twins, swathed in the finest Egyptian cotton linen.
The minimalist design approach, paired with the thoughtful layout, provides ample storage space, keeping your personal sanctuary clutter-free and maintaining a tranquil ambiance that resonates with the peaceful view outside.
The bathroom offers a feature freestanding bathtub and a large shower stall, with premium COMO Shambhala amenities taking the experience to another level of personal wellness.
And with the bathroom opening up to the balcony, you can effortlessly transition from a relaxing soak to basking in the warm Thai sunshine.
Yet while you may enjoy the luxury of the Bay Room’s privacy, you’re also granted access to shared experiences like the COMO Shambhala Retreat spa and the infinity pool just a few steps away from the indoor-to-outdoor lobby – if you can peel yourself away from that view, of course.
At the heart of the Bay Room is the enduring connection to the sea, the sky, and the rhythmic dance of light and shadow over Phang Nga Bay. Every dawn brings with it a new scene, every dusk a serene conclusion.
The shifting hues, the sound of the waves, the cool sea breeze – these aren’t just parts of your surroundings, but a symphony of experiences that will resonate with you long after your departure.
