Como Hotels and Resorts has announced the detailed design concept for the Point Yamu resort in Phuket, Thailand - Italian architect and designer Paola Navone's first hospitality scheme.

The beachside development is owned by Christina Ong and is due to launch in mid 2013, with facilities to include Como Shambhala Retreat with eight treatment rooms.

Como Hotels and Resorts is working with property developer Campbell Kane, KS Group and Hotel Properties Ltd on the project, which will also feature private residences.

Under the terms of a multi-year management agreement, Como is to provide full branding, sales, marketing and operational services. It is also at the centre of the design process.

Singapore-based Hotel Properties Ltd has interests in 26 hotels in 11 countries, while KS Group has a portfolio of boutique hotels across the Asia Pacific region.

Campbell Kane has partnered with Lippo Group on a number of Asian schemes - such as the Cape Yamu residential villas designed by Philippe Starck and Jean-Michel Gathy.

A 100m swimming pool and a yoga studio will also form part of the Como resort, as well as an Italian and Thai restaurant and a private beach. It will become Como's 10th property.

Navone's interior designs for the resort are inspired by the sea and aims to encapsulate the atmosphere of "by Como"-branded islands resorts in locations such as the Maldives.

"To my mind the best hotels are contemporary places but at the same time they root you in a locale, so you know where you are. This balance is vital," she said.

Como global marketing director Gabriela Henrichwark added: "Paola is a true original in contemporary design, and as a westerner who has lived in and experienced eastern culture, her work embodies Como's global spirit."
