Location and Transfers
Located on Cape Yamu, a tropical peninsula on Phuket’s east coast that overlooks peaceful Phang Nga Bay. The resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Phuket International Airport
Point Yamu’s Phuket luxury accommodation is colourful yet uncluttered, contemporary yet indigenous. Blue and turquoise design accents in the 79 rooms and suites, and 27 private luxury villas, recall the Andaman Sea, all offset by cool white and grey Sino patterned tiles and floor-to-ceiling windows framing the spectacular views.
Most rooms have private terraces with views across Phang Nga Bay or inland across the Cape, while the Pool Suites and Private Villas benefit from their own swimming pools
