Spent five days with my wife at the resort late Nov 2013. Arranged airport transfer by hotel and meet & greet at the airport was flawless. Drive from Phuket Airport is about 25 minutes to the tip of Cape Yamu. Service from the time we arrived was perfect, which was a nice surprise as the hotel is brand new. Some of the surrounding area is still under development (villas being built on the hillside) but this does not affect the main building where rooms are located.
James, who is the General Manager, met us at the reception and explained about the on-going developments. Very kindly arranged a room upgrade to Bay Suite, which has a gorgeous view of the bay. Overall decor is contemporary with lots of space and views to die for! Fantastic location on top of a hill with top-notch service to boot. Two restaurants on-site - the Thai restaurant offers very good value authentic local food. Breakfast at the Italian restaurant with both a-la-carte and a selection from the buffet.
We were at first a little disappointed that there is no accces to the beach but when we asked the staff we were in for a surprise. The hotel arranges on request a trip to the nearby Rang Yai island, only about 15 minutes by boat from the hotel. When we arrived we were one of only three couples on a virgin beach - a little slice of paradise. Como even has staff on the island to ensure all guests are taken care of -special thanks to Rong who was very attentive and even helped us arrange for lunch. Granted, by the afternoon there were other tourists so the beach got a little crowded. When we gave this feedback to James he mentioned that the hotel is trying to secure the beach so that only hotel guests can use it. Hope this comes true in the near future.
There is also a good restaurant at the entrance to the resort compound - Breeze Cape Yamu which is a must try. We had dinner there twice and it was lovely food with great atmosphere. Be sure to catch the sunset there with a glass of bubbly.
Only regret is that we did not get a chance to use the spa. Had a look around and it gave a good impression but we did not get around to booking a treatment.
Overall one of the best hotel experiences ever and we are already looking forward to going back soon!
