1-bedroom Villas in Cape Yamu, Phuket, Thailand

Cape Yamu on Phuket’s east coast just north of Phuket Town was once an undiscovered area known only to the locals who fished or worked in the plantations. This all changed in the early 2000s when some international high-fliers, including renowned designer Philippe Starck and architect Jean-Michel Gathy of Aman resorts fame, discovered its pristine beauty and set about to transform it into a luxury enclave. Now, amidst the greenery and the groves, sit some of Phuket’s most prestigious villa and condominium estates. The Cape, The Bay, Baan Yamu Residences and Grove Gardens projects have since opened up along the fringes of this boot-shaped cape that resembles a tiny Italy. Cape Yamu enjoys close access to the yacht cruising and island-hopping wonders of Phang Nga Bay with three marinas and two piers within a 20-minute drive from the villa. Some islands off the east coast, including Koh Naka Yai and Rang Yai, both with beautiful sandy beaches, can be reached within a 15-minute boat trip. Mission Hills golf club is just 15 kilometres away. The serene Bang Pae waterfall and the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre within the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park nearby offer an inland attraction for families seeking an alternative to beach excursions, while Thalang Museum (8km) gives a modest yet insightful look into Phuket’s culture and past.

Villa Abiente

Thailand » Phuket » Cape Yamu

Abiente is a superb holiday villa for active, modern couples and groups of friends, with its chic styling and setting on Phuket’s east coast, on the doorstep of the region’s best sites for yachting, kayaking and other outdoor adventures.  For those of us with less ambitious holiday plans, it’s also a fine place to do absolutely nothing but relax poolside and bask in the tropical sun!  The open-plan layout invited us to gather, relax and flit between the cool white interior and the pool with ease.  Each of the three bedrooms is similarly designed and furnished with king-sized beds and TVs, though only two enjoy a sea view and poolside setting – so there might have to be a coin-toss on arrival.  We were among the first to visit this newly built villa (mid-2017) and loved its bright and welcoming ambiance with a no-fuss minimalist edge and a few touches of whimsy here and there including a big mural splashed across the entry hall.  Abiente is among the newer villas in Baan Yamu, a decade-old estate with exceptional guest facilities available including a well-equipped gym, which we didn’t try out (lazy!), and the huge 75-metre pool, a good option for serious swimmers.
