Hey guys! Savvy Home here holding down the fort today while Jacquelyn’s away! When she told me about her trip to Thailand, I was a little jealous (OK, a lot). So when she asked me to fill in during her time away, I decided to imagine a little (very fictional) Thai getaway of my own. It never hurt anyone to daydream a little when it’s -20 outside right?
When planning my fictional getaway, I was determined to find a Thai hotel that was different from your typical British colonial-meets-Zen yogi retreat, where Nepalese pagodas are as common as Buddha statues, outdoor rain showers and jewel-toned silk pillows (not that those things are bad—I’d take any of them over freezing blizzards)!
After looking at dozens of hotel, I stumbled upon Point Yamu. Now that’s more my speed: moroccan tiled floors, giant wicker chandeliers, black and white stripes, dip-dyed tree trunks and sweeping views… Point Yamu overlooks the Andaman Sea and the dramatic limestones of Phang Nga Bay. The interiors are by Italian designer Paola Navone—which you may remember from her collections for Crate & Barrel and Anthropologie. I could see myself spending quite a bit of time there, indulging in la dolce far niente or stuffing my face in their Thai and Italian restaurants.
