This is our first time staying in Cape Yamu and I came away loving it. It’s a quiet area with million-dollar villas and million-dollar views. To describe the area as exclusive is an understatement… we felt like celebrities!
Villa Sapna is one of these villas, it’s a 5-bedroom, fully-staffed villa including personal chef, butlers, housekeeping and security team. It has multiple living areas and a great rooftop deck for a sundowner and watching the sunset.
Villa Sapna is a dreamy blend of modern architecture and incredible views of the Thai isles. Many of the rooms feature full-length windows, allowing guests to make the most of the views overlooking Phang Nga Bay and the infinity-edged pool is the perfect spot for taking in the views.
The villa has a beautiful 20-metre pool which opens out to gorgeous ocean views. The pool is surrounded by white deck chairs and parasols. If the views from the pool are not enough, make your way to the rooftop sala, where you’ll be treated to the best sunset views on the island.
Island Hopping from Cape Yamu
The reason we decided to visit Cape Yamu is that many of the Phuket day trips leave from the harbour on this side of the island. If you arrange a day trip from the west side of Phuket more than likely the tour company will collect you and perhaps other travellers and traverse the island to one of Phuket’s harbours.
We simply walked down in the morning and boarded our boat. You can book ahead with our concierge team when booking with Ministry of Villas.
Phi Phi Island
It cost TB 2,500 – TB 4,000 each for the day trip which all up is around 7 hours from start to finish. It may seem a long time, but when you stop and explore three islands, have lunch, jump in the water and swim with fish and baby sharks, dry off in the sun and do a little shopping at the beach shops selling knick-knacks time passes very quickly!
