How to Get There
Stayed here recently for a friend’s wedding. When first arriving we were struck by the tranquility and beauty of the location. The first thing we noticed was the cavernous reception area, this huge space instantly relaxes you, along with the scented towels and delicious, refreshing tea being served.
We had a few issues shortly after checking in, none that I want to highlight here, but we were very disappointed. What I will highlight is that the hotel staff went above and beyond to help, which resulted in us being upgraded. Due to this we spent our entire trip in one of the bay pool suites - which was fantastic! If you get the chance to book one of these rooms, I would highly recommend doing so. If we ever come back, we’d spend the extra money and get another room like this.
The hotel overall is beautiful, with quality finishings and the bathrooms and beds are large (this applies to both rooms we had). The hotel manager / GM was a really nice chap, we’d often see him walking around and he always made the effort to stop and have a chat. He even gave us some good tips for our trip to Bangkok.
My only criticism (hence the 4 star rating) is the food does not match the quality of the hotel, it was lacking a certain “je ne sais quoi”. Breakfast was okay, but didn’t stand out compared to other breakfasts in Thailand and specifically Phuket. Neither were we that impressed with the main restaurant - we were expecting quality Thai food, however it was decidedly average. Unlike our trip to Raya restaurant in Phuket Old Town, which whilst not being much to look at, served excellent dishes (if you go try the crab meat curry - it’s fantastic!).
However, despite this criticism our overall stay was bliss. It really is a stunning setting, a great place to unwind. The spa is excellent, well worth a visit. As mentioned, after our initial disappointment the hotel went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic stay!
Thank you COMO Point Yamu 😁
We stayed at Como for a week with our two children and group of other friends and their children. The hotel and rooms are fantastic and very picturesque. However for a hotel of this standard we were all consistently disappointed by the service and food.
With very little children we often ordered room service, which was delivered every time with errors, or food missing. The food would also arrive cold and was generally very average. The Thai restaurant is very nice however the service was slow and not particularly friendly. The breakfast and lunch menus are decent but again the service slow, often mistakes with orders and the food is average. Definitely not what we would expect or have received from other Como resorts.
Our kids enjoyed the kids club and the activities they provided are good. The staff are also very friendly and we utilised in house babysitters who were great.
We enjoyed our stay and loved the hotel but there are a lot of improvements needed to bring the staff service and food up to a 5star hotel!
Stayed at COMO point for 3 nights . Booked a one bedroom villa , was picked up at the airport by hotel Mercedes. Check in was quick and we were given an early checkin . Villa is huge with modern amenities . Lovely kids club that kept my girls busy . Beach club is another attraction which I enjoyed. Food is what needs improvement. More variety in term of global cuisines like Indian , Mediterranean etc. All in all excellent resort and had nice time
TL;DR – good private villa, average food, inconsistent service and poor beach club make for a family holiday falling a bit short of expectations.
Como Point Yamu has, initially, a pretty intriguing proposition – a hotel on an island visited for its beaches but with no beach attached to the resort, with instead a beach club reached, as we were initially told upon arrival, by a 45-minute boat ride… our kids are very keen to play on the beach so this sounded like an interesting idea, offering a bit of an adventure via a daily boat ride to the beach… it turned out to be quite a different experience.
Let’s start with the positives – the two-bedroom villa we booked was well appointed – two separate bedrooms (1 kind, 2 single beds), ideal for a family, with en-suite bathrooms, a separate guest bathroom/utility room, a small but well-appointed kitchen, lounge with TV (the 3rd in the villa) & dining table and a terrace with another table and chairs, loungers and a good size pool. Overall, you can't be disappointed by the villas and the overall set-up is really very good.
Upon arrival, guests are assigned butlers, working in pairs and in shifts, and ours were a bit hit & miss – Nicky was excellent throughout whereas her colleague was substantially less polite and overall less capable. I would also drop the "butler" terminology used by the hotel - sounds horribly dated and "host" or "villa host" would be far more befitting.
The villa has a large fridge stocked-up with complimentary drinks (beers, sodas, water) and daily snacks are delivered in a tiffin box – a very nice touch – a low-quality but drinkable bottle of Champagne was also waiting for us.
So in terms of accommodation, this is a perfectly good choice – the resort boasts two restaurants, a Thai (Nahmyaa) and an Italian one (La Sirena, also the breakfast venue), neither amazing but both functionally OK. Breakfast was good with a great spread of fruits and nice service. Frankly, if I were running this I would have focused on the resort only, which is well designed, pleasant and relaxing and completely dropped the idea of a remote beach club until/if ever they could guarantee a better experience.
Instead, where things start to unravel is with this “beach club” concept which is nothing short of disastrous. Advertised on Como’s site as being the “perfect setting for a day of island escapism” it is in fact anything but…
To reach the “beach”, you first need to take a golf buggy ride to the reception, then a 35-minute drive in a van (or more depending on traffic – it is definitely not a “less than 10 minutes’ drive” as claimed by another reviewer), then traipse across a marina to another 8-10-minute boat ride… not quite what we were told. All told, it takes the best part of one hour to get there… to reach a minuscule enclave immediately next to a massive venue for water sports for groups… The photos do a better job at describing how appalling this looks, with rows of white plastic chairs set-up for the safety briefings of large groups. Jet skis and other vessels come in and out constantly and the swimming area is sandwiched between two floating pontoons...
The “beach” is a 50-meter stretch, with a one-meter depth between the sea and the front row of dry sand… nowhere to play for kids and people going to the Como Beach club end-up either in the pool or on the loungers… seemingly rendering the entire concept completely redundant considering the much better pools and seating options back at the hotel…
A good tip if you must go is to book one of the 2 cabanas by the pool – they rent for BHT 2000 for the day but 1000 gets discounted if you order food… for this you get a table, covered loungers and a private shower and toilet, which comes handy with kids. Food is OK there but service incredibly slow.
That aside, there is really no sound reason to go there – a roughly 1h30 return journey to sit by a pool next to a water sports business for groups is a ludicrous idea and a terribly poorly executed concept. We went there only once and never returned.
Other aspects which did not impress much – the villa provides some free snacks in glass jars – my youngest started eating some of the pandan leaf/chilli peanuts and I followed suit only to bite on a metal staple… not great! Sincere and appreciated apologies from the GM ensued, which was fine since no harm was done but not very reassuring in terms of food preparation standards.
Room service is acceptable but feels a bit barren – for example Italian dishes arrive without any bread whereas they serve various types in the restaurant with the same dishes. However, kids’ portions are ridiculously small if your kids are no longer toddlers – a pasta dish, pictured to the left of an adult portion, gives you an idea of what a kids’ portion means for Como.
Service was hit and miss – white and rosé wines served lukewarm in La Sirena, items not provided with room service. Check-out was painful – the bill didn’t match-up properly between nightly rates and taxes (very oddly apportioned) and the staff took ages to understand their own calculations. Good thing we had plenty of time but not the best way to part company.
Overall, the hotel has very good and usable facilities for the main resort – good villas, decent restaurants (which do need improvements for sure), some fun touches (daily snacks, ice-cream by the lobby every day), a nice games room for the kids etc…had it stopped at that this would have been a very good stay... the experience is sadly marred by the incomprehensible beach club concept which delivers nothing in terms of escapism and instead provides a sub-par experience as compared to the main hotel or even your own in-villa pool. For this alone, it is really impossible to recommend this resort other than to people with absolutely no interest in spending time on a beach and we would most likely not return.
Stayed 3 nights and it was very relaxing although the kids made their appearance known at the pool. The breakfast buffet is amazing with innovative dishes like the nut based avocado toast and fluffy eggs white. Really impressed with the spread of food and ala carte breakfast. Rooms are spacious but at times dark. Nice bar and quiet restaurants. Good and secluded in Phuket.
