T+L Reports: Cape Yamu Phuket
Published: April 2009
Phuket's western side may be a mecca for
travelers on tours, but the east coast will be an
über-upscale retreat once Cape Yamu (66-76/270-770; www.capeyamu.com)
makes its debut, in late 2007. On a private peninsula, the complex, designed by Philippe Starck and architect
Jean-Michel Gathy (who built Amanwana), will have a 50-room hotel, a 300-foot pool facing Pang-nga Bay, 33 beachfront
villa estates (from $2.6 million)—and even a recording studio.
