Como Hotels and Resorts has opened a new resort in Phuket – its first in Thailand outside of the capital Bangkok.

Point Yamu features 79 rooms and 27 private villas, overlooking both UNESCO World Heritage Site Phang Nga Bay and the Andaman Sea.

The beachside development was designed by Paola Navone, working on her first property for Como. The resort combines Navone's “eclectic, colourful approach” with Como's “signature clean lines and pared-back, contemporary style," according to the company.

Point Yamu's spa contains eight treatment rooms operated by sister brand Como Shambhala, using its own hair and body products produced from the “highest grade aroma-essential oils”. The spa will include a yoga studio, four Thai massage alcoves, male and female steamrooms, a jacuzzi and gym.

Other features of the resort include a lenghthy 100m (328ft) swimming pool, Italian and Thai restaurants and a child-friendly interactive learning area. The private residences are available to purchase and will include access to all of the resort's facilities.

The resort is to also offer biking through nearby villages and plantations, plus snorkelling and diving under the guidance of English-speaking Como guides.

Como worked with property developer Campbell Kane, KS Group and Hotel Properties Ltd in bringing the project to fruition.
