Nestled away from the crowds of Phuket, Keemala will offer a unique getaway experience to guests 

Positioned in the forests above Kamala beach, the resort has been designed around the existence of four fictitious clans. Encompassing the surrounding landscape, each villa incorporates elements of traditional culture from the region to create a wonderland for guests to enjoy. The resort has been designed by director of Pisud Pisit Aongskultong, who has worked on other notable hospitality projects such as the Grand Hyatt, Hong Kong and  Aseana Hotel Bangkok .

The Clay Pool Cottages reflect the earthiness of the Pa-ta-Pea clan, while the Tent Pool Villas have been designed to reflect the nomadic lifestyle of the Khon-Jorn tribe. The We-ha people worshipped the universe and chose to live suspended from trees to be closer to the sky and they have been represented by the Tree Pool Houses. Finally, the Bird’s Nest Pool Villas were inspired by the Rung-Nok community and encompass their opulent way of life.

The Tree Houses are spread over two floors so that guests may feel closer to the sky

38 cottages, houses and villas make up the resort, each ranging in size from 116 sq-m to 175 sq-m, and all have private pools as well as sea and mountain views. Onsite, the Mala Spa offers guests a selection of holistic packages and access to a host of visiting practitioners throughout the year. The resort is set to open in October.
