Point Yamu by COMO in Phuket, Thailand to open in summer 2013

Details have been released of a new hotel in the beachside region of Phuket in Thailand. Designed by architects Denniston with interiors by Paola Navone, Point Yamu by COMO is a 79-room complex with 30 villas, a spa and two restaurants, and a collection of exclusive private residences, due to open in July 2013. The interiors will be of contemporary design, with bright blue and orange tones reflecting the sea views and warm hues of Buddhist robes.

Navone explains: “It’s about building a resort where you feel relaxed, you feel soft and not stressed by anything that surrounds you. 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.”
