Located within the woodlands of Kamala in Phuket, Keemala, Thailand’s latest resort, has opened. The 38 villas have been inspired by the stories, cultures, traditions and lifestyles of Phuket settlers, offering 4 avant-garde choices all complete with private pools and a range of both sea and mountain views.
The 16 Clay Pool Cottages reflect the earthiness of the Pa-Ta-Pea (earth) clan who believed in a strong connection to the earth and harnessed agriculture as their trade. With a selection of one and two bedrooms, the cottages range in size from 126sqm to 180sqm. Rates start from THB 19,050+++ and THB 26,640+++, respectively.
The tent-like structure and wildlife-inspired prints and textures of the 7 Tent Pool Villas reflect the nomadic way of life of the Khon-Jorn (wanderer) clan that consisted of foragers, performers and traders. With a master bedroom and separate living space, the villa size is 140sqm and with rates starting from THB 21,200+++.
The 7 imaginative Tree Pool Houses use building techniques to give the impression that the structures are suspended from trees to represent the We-Ha (sky) clan who worshipped the universe. This quirky two-floor villa design is 169sqm and can accommodate up to 4 guests. Rates start from THB 23,350+++.
The Rung-Nok (nest) community inspired the design of the 8 Bird’s Nest Pool Villas. This group enjoyed an opulent way of life, thus the exclusive interwoven design of their homes. This villa offers the most exclusive experience of all the villa types, with a total space of 185sqm and with rates starting from THB 25,500+++.

As an extension of the wholesome spirit of Keemala, ingredients used in the cuisine are locally sourced and organically grown where possible.

Keemala has 4 outlets for dining: the main restaurant, a pool bar, a comfy lounge and a smaller wine cellar ideal for small parties and meetings, and destination dining will be offered to those guests who would like to enjoy the ambience of somewhere distinct, perhaps beside the waterfall, in a separate pavilion in the grounds or in the comfort of a villa or cottage.
Keemala welcomes young adults of 14 years upwards.
