The rainy season occurs from May to October, while the dry season extends from November to April.
Paola Navone’s design vision for the resort incorporates bright aquamarines to mirror the sea and burnt oranges to reflect the color of Buddhist robes in Thailand, as well as accents of Phuket’s Peranakan heritage. This unique blend of design elements creates a serene and culturally rich atmosphere for guests to enjoy during their stay at COMO Point Yamu.
