A Small Luxury Hotels of the World winner, Keemala is an all-pool-villa hideaway that combines an off-the-beaten-track atmosphere with barefoot contemporary luxury. Tucked away in the Kamala rainforest, this tropical wonderland invites total escape from the 9-to-5, with spa programmes, fine food, adventurous activities and rustic accommodation of the highest quality all coming together to complete your authentic Phuket holiday experience.
Away from the tourist trail, the hillside Keemala resort is flanked by the Andaman sea and overlooks Kamala village. It’s an evergreen world of lush vegetation and verdant woodland imbued with a quiet tranquillity. Though cut off from modern-day distractions, Keemala Resort remains close to Kamala Beach and Patong Beach so the opportunity to up the tempo is there should you wish. Kamala Beach itself is mere minutes away via complimentary shuttle bus, and enjoys warm, clear waters for snorkelling during high season, and great swells for surfing during the low season.
Honeymooners, couples, family and friends all find a captivating escape suited to their needs. From laidback afternoons spent in and around your private pool dwelling, to local day trips that let you socialise and sight-see in bustling Phuket, everyone can find their own pace. The symbols of earth, wandering, sky and nesting are important tokens at Keemala, helping to signify the sense of nurture, inspiration, freedom and comfort promoted by the resort. Nowhere is this more evident than in the healing powers of Mala Spa, and there are also yoga and pilates classes available to further enhance this feeling of wellness and calm.
