cape yamu. a private promotion jutting out into phang nga bay, on the east coast of phuket, thailand, is home to three developments by campbellkane: Point Yamu by COMO, resort hotel and villas unlike any other. Cape Yamu: an exclusive collection of luxurious residences, and the bay, 17 contemporary sea view homes.
surrounded by the soul-soaring scenery of phang nga bay, the world's foremost marine playground, cape yamu is for those who value sophistication, luxury, privacy - who believe that life is to be enjoyed with intelligence and play fulness, and always to the full.
COMO Hotels and Resorts, the award-winning five-star hotel group based in Singapore, is to develop and manage Point Yamu by COMO, offering 109 rooms, including 30 private villas, with panoramic views of the cape and the surrounding Andaman Sea.
Facilities include a 100-metre swimming pool, a COMO Shambhala Retreat featuring 8 treatments rooms as well as a yoga studio, an Italian and Thai restaurant, “glow” featuring COMO Shambhala’s healthy cuisine.
The interior aesthetic are by Italian designer Paola Navone - an extraordinary Milan-based talent who will be continuing a COMO tradition of working with some of the best contemporary-minded talents in the business.
Point Yamu will be an attractive proposition for Asia- based guests looking for a short break to rejuvenate as well as long-haul guests seeking a comprehensive escape from city life.
An exclusive community of 30 spacious and elegant private mansions, all in waterfront locations and also designed by the Gathy/Starck team, the homes at The Cape stand out because of their unique living pavilions with steeply pitched roof – a salute to traditional Asia yet at the same time utterly modern.
Exotic tropical hardwoods, luxurious textiles and the rich imaginations of Gathy and Starck combine with the 180-degree sea-and-islands panorama to make these homes among the most desirable in the world.
Each, naturally, has a swimming pool, along with reflecting ponds, all surrounded by extensive tropical gardens alive with birds and butterflies. Owners also have access to the Clubhouse with its restaurant/bar, delicatessen, fitness centre, and tennis courts – everything for those who want a unique lifestyle.
The ethereal architecture of homes at The Bay, by KplusK of Hong Kong, plays with light. Sometimes it seems as if there are no walls at all, just cubes of brightness and shade, cubes of air with cool open spaces between. Huge windows bring the outside in, and the inside out.
As the architects themselves put it, “The definition of each villa is light, the relationship of the architecture with sun, sea and sky is intense. This lightness of approach offers many ways for each owner to personalize the way in which to live in them. It is liberating.”
The villas range in interior space from 253 square meters to 470 (four bedrooms), with external living areas of as much as 460 square meters. Land plots range up to 1,900 square metres, some of them with sea views to both south and north.
Behind Cape Yamu is Campbell Kane, a private company registered in Thailand involved in developing luxury residential, hotel and commercial properties across the Asia market.
Thanks to the company’s clear vision of the future and its collaboration with leading partners including Philippe Starck and Jean-Michel Gathy, each of Campbell Kane’s projects is of the highest quality and creativity. Each is unique.
In Point Yamu by COMO, The Cape and The Bay, Campbell Kane has created three new brands that have already garnered admiring recognition among the cognoscenti and the sophisticated in lands far from Phuket.
