Keemala harnesses the history of fictitious ancient Phuket settlers and incorporates the story of four different clans within the resort. Keemala’s style blends the indigenous stories of the clans with the decadence of an upscale resort.The architecture is a stark contrast to most hotel accommodation. Keemala’s fantastic cottages, tree houses and pool villas are designed around the unique topographical conditions. Set into the hillside and making use of slopes offering sea views, streams, waterfalls and indigenous trees. A significant part of the Keemala ethos is to celebrate and cultivate Thai culture. This is strongly perceived in the spa. Treatments and wellness programs are being meticulously designed to utilize bygone techniques, natural herbs used as medicinal remedies in conjunction with old-fashioned pampering. The eight treatment rooms will offer a haven of renewal and the spa will also offer a Thai massage pavilion, steam and sauna rooms along with a fitness room with views of the sea and lush topography, yoga and meditation spaces making Keemala an ideal destination for retreats. As an extension of the wholesome spirit of Keemala, cuisine offered will also be organic and locally sourced and grown where possible. The menus will incorporate healthy, nutritious and above all delicious meals. Keemala will offer three outlets for dining, the main restaurant, a pool bar, 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 sala in the grounds or in the comfort of the villa or cottage.

My wife and I spent 10 nights at Keemala for our honeymoon. Having recently travelled to the Maldives, we were hopeful that something might top the experience and Keemala certainly delivered. We stayed in a tent pool villa after being warmly welcomed by Jida, someone who was

First, I want to touch on what has been the biggest issue I had in the past few experiences of mine with hotels. With professional photography, most of the hotels manage to lure in customers only to face with a certain degree of disappointment upon arrival. This is certainly not

We stayed at this amazing property in February 2019, after a friend pointed it out to me 7 months ago, and I immediately booked it! When we arrived in the morning, our villa was not ready, so they transferred us to a spa-room, so that we could relax, refresh and take a nap. A

Dear Valued Guest, thank you for your question and interest in Keemala. We are happy to welcome guests of all ages, however due to our natural and un-prohibiting design and landscape together with our peaceful and quiet atmosphere we describe ourselves as not child friendly. We do not have a kids club, kids pool or any children activities. As we do not want to disappoint our young fans, we do accept children, but only when travelling with 2 adults. Children inside Keemala will remain the responsibility of their parents for both health and safety aspects, and to ensure the adult atmosphere for all guests inside the resort is not effected. Please note that not all our villas are suitable for children. Hope this helps, but please feel free to contact us directly for any further information Enchanting Regards The Management

Dear Valued Guest, thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor. Please kindly understand that our concept and location is in total harmony with nature. We do not pride ourselves with ocean views etc, and we have prestigious views from our villas. Keemala is nestled amidst lush flora atop rolling hills overlooking Kamala Village and the Andaman Sea. Featuring a private pool for each villa which is located on a stunning hill side, which enhances stunning views of the below woodlands and the glittering sea. Enchanting Regards The Management

"A nearby mosque blares music at 6am; bring earplugs!"
"Villa decks are mostly shady. Ask to be higher up on the north side for more sun."
"Splurge for the treehouse if you can. The cottage and tent house was not as exciting from the outside and lower view to the pool."
"A villa at higher level might offer you a better view."
"Top Tree Villa is located on the hill and you will have the full privacy"
