CLOSE AND HIDDEN FROM EVERYTHING

Paradise. It's the closest word to describe this place. History doesn't set a date of establishment, nor is it important. What really matters is that the place exists and is available to offer a piece of paradise.

Keemala is something like you've never seen. The resort is located away from the crowds (close to Phuket, Thailand, though) and overlooking Kamala Village and the Andaman Sea. The all pool villa is positioned in the hills surrounded by the green and lush woodlands.

It embraces a Thai cultural philosophy and brings it to life through a unique design and offering the guests, experiences that enhance quality of life. For fun seekers, the resort is close enough the Kamala Beach and the liveliness of Patong Beach and all the dynamic action that Phuket has to offer, yet far enough for you to step back and take time to enjoy the tranquil surroundings of the rainforest and the holistic activities and cuisine to aid wellbeing.

The resort features various types of accommodation.

The Clay Pool Cottages are inspired in a Pa-Ta-Pea (meaning 'Earth') Clan belief that being connected to the earth would bring them health benefits. Not only would they build their homes on ground level, they'd also incorporate earth into their walls, roofs and furniture.

The cottages offer rainforest and resort views and include a spacious bathroom with shower, outside shower and a stand-alone bathtub. The villa size is from 126m² including pool and outdoor terrace. There are also two 2-bedroom clay cottages available ideal for friends or families which offer 180m² of total space and one large shared bathroom.

Another option is the Tent Pool Villas. These are inspired by the Khon-Jorn (meaning 'Wanderer') Clan, an adventurous group made up of foragers, herders, performers, traders and explorers, who spent their time trading goods with other tribes they encountered on their journeys. Due to their nomadic ways, they'd prefer to construct semi-permanent homes, so they could easily move on.

Inside the Tent Pool Villas, you'll see that wildlife has inspired the interiors and materials were also chosen to highlight their pursuant lifestyle. The villas offer rainforest and resort views and include a spacious bathroom with shower, outside shower and a stand-alone bathtub. The villa size is 140 m² including pool and outdoor lounging space.

There are also the Tree Pool Houses, inspired by the We-Ha (meaning 'Sky') Clan. This group is believed to have had advanced understanding of the universe. They built their homes elevated from the ground in order to obtain better creativity and liberty. The clan included the talents of healers, creators, architects and inventors.

Featuring two floors, these spacious villas are complete with a private pool; upper level master bedroom, and a large lounge and dining area on the lower level. The interiors of the seven Tree Pool Houses incorporate suspended furniture and cocoon like beds and loungers.

The Tree House offers rainforest and resort views and includes a spacious bathroom with shower, outside shower, guest washroom and a stand-alone bathtub. The villa size is 169 m² including pool and upper outdoor relaxation space adjoining the master bedroom.

And finally, the Keemala Resort & Spa features the Bird's Nest Pool Villas. They're inspired by the Rung-Nok Clan (meaning 'Nest') who enjoyed an opulent life. Their craving for exclusivity resulted in the woven tangle of a bird's nest. This clan was thought to be superior in both intellect and creativity and comprised of artists, musicians, astrologers, philosophers and poets.

They believed that the future could be predicted from astrology. They would bathe under the moonlight believing that their souls would be replenished, thus the inspiration for these beautiful private pool villas.

The villas offer some sea, rainforest and resort views and include an expansive bathroom with shower and a stand-alone bathtub with a view. The villa size is 185m² including pool and outdoor sun deck.
