Baan Maprao - Lawn to the ocean

Cape Yamu

The Locale

Baan Maprao is set on exclusive Cape Yamu, a beautiful peninsula on Phuket’s east coast, marked by rolling hills, tall coconut groves and lush tropical surrounds. With three marinas and two piers nearby, it enjoys easy access to the mystical limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay, and beautiful tropical islands such as Ko Naka Yai and Ko Rang Yai, both of which offer pristine white-sand beaches. For nature lovers, the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park with Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre and eye-catching Bang Pae waterfall are within close reach, while the bustling streets of Phuket Town are a mere 30-minute drive away.

Things To Do

Baan Maprao’s manager and concierge team have a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of the region. 

In the meantime, here is a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of the villa.

  • Bang Pae waterfall – Found within the Khao Phra Thaeo national park, this lovely green oasis in Phuket’s interior has a walking trail and streams for cooling down. A popular weekend picnicking spot for families.
  • East coast islands – Within a 30-minute boat ride from busy Phuket lie some of the region’s most spectacular islands including the peaceful Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai, best explored by bicycle. Or explore the towering limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay, in rustic local style aboard a long-tail boat, or chartering a luxury yacht for the day.
  • Gibbon Rehabilitation Project – This long-running shelter for gibbons and other rescued animals offers an eye-opening education into wildlife poaching and the challenges of re-introducing gibbons to the wild. A handful of these deft primates with a haunting call can be seen in enclosures.
  • Breeze Restaurant and Bar – Tucked away within Cape Yamu, this open-air dining spot has become a destination for foodie fans for its flavourful, inventive fare and sunset views. Reservations are a must for Breeze’s ‘long lazy’ Sunday brunches.
  • Nahmyaa Thai Restaurant – An excellent range of Thai dishes including fresh seafood, stir-fries and curries plus a selection of Como resort’s healthy Shambhala Cuisine of organic and living enzyme foods.
  • COMO Shambhala Retreat – A spa and wellness centre with yoga sessions, massage, skin treatments and a gym to restore and revitalise the body and mind.
  • COMO Beach Club – This exclusive beach club on Naka Yai island just minutes away from Cape Yamu offers a private beach, kayaking, kids’ club and spa treatments, plus a sea view pool to splash around in. Light meals available at the beach club bar.
