Villa Sawarin sits high on The Cape Yamu peninsula on Phuket’s east coast. From the villa’s cathedral-like entrance the ocean gleams to both the east and west.
Bordering the lower section of the villa’s large, sloping gardens is a quiet, semi-private beach (good for kayaking and long sandy walks, but not so suitable for swimming).
Within the estate is the excellent Breeze restaurant, and guests also have access to the sports, dining and wellness facilities at the Point Yamu by COMO resort hotel, including the hotel’s beach club on nearby island, Koh Naka Yai.
The waterfront promenade and small pier along the road that leads to The Cape estate is a good place for a stroll to take in the local life, especially when the setting sun gives the bay a golden and crimson glow.
