Finding a luxury resort on Phuket is easy, as there are plenty of options to choose from. Finding a resort that offers 5-star luxury rooms in the lower price range alongside a long list of on-site and nearby activities is a bit more difficult. That’s why for this deal we’re focusing on a resort that caters to families and couples with lots of great amenities that fit well with each type of vacation style.
The COMO Point Yamu Phuket Resort impresses with a rather long list of room choices, beautiful views of Phang Nga Bay, a solid 5-star rating, and little extras that make a big difference. You can get all of this, alongside snorkeling and scuba diving access, fishing excursions, and sailing for a nightly rate starting out at US$230 per night for two people.
A room at the COMO Point Yamu Phuket Resort (taxes and fees extra) for US$230 per night for two people.
Available though Agoda, this rate is nightly and for the month of June. Though it’s not low enough for the backpacking crowd, it is a great option for those seeking luxury at a price that won’t break the budget for the rest of your trip. In fact, this rate is at the bottom of normal low season rates, meaning that you really are getting the best deal possible. It needs to be noted however, that this rate only applies to the Bay Room, which is one of the smallest rooms at this resort. If you want to stay in a larger room, or one with a pool, you’ll want to be prepared for a higher nightly rate.
Large bay front rooms with splendid views
For this deal, we’re focusing on the Bay Room, which even though it is one of the smaller resort rooms available, you’ll notice lots of great amenities. First off, you’ll find air conditioning, which is a great add-on during this time of the year where it may get a little hotter than you would like during the afternoon. You’ll also find an entertainment center showcasing a 46 inch LCD TV, Wi-Fi that’s available your entire stay, and 24 hour room service.
Because the resort staff want to make sure you feel as at home as possible, you’ll find a hairdryer, a safe, several bathroom amenities (shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc…), a coffee and tea making area and a private bar. Everyday that you book also grants you complimentary bottled water and fresh fruit.
A long list of activities and amenities
As with many of the luxury resorts within Phuket, this one serves up amenity after amenity, which seems to always please. The resort’s on-site spa offers massages, body care treatments, holistic treatments, and facials to all paying guests. You’ll also want to note the resort’s yoga and fitness center. If you’re nervous about skipping out on your normal fitness routine during vacation, you’ll find that it’s not an issue while staying at this resort. If you’re traveling with children in tow, then the resort’s babysitting service may be something you want to check into.
Of course snorkeling and scuba diving are offered here, along with fishing, private boat charters nearby and tours around the island.
