Phuket’s Keemala Hotel is Calling

Thailand is definitely having a moment right now. Last month, we gushed over the stunning Indigo Pearl, and now we’re yearning for a week-long escape in another Phuket-based resort: Keemala Hotel.

The resort, which opened last year, honours the history of the area and the surrounding landscape with thoughtful design choices. The legends of the area’s four indigenous clans are incorporated into the design scheme through the four villa options—including clay cottages, luxe tents, and nest-like structures—that reflect the unique story of each group. And when I say that Keemala considers the natural environment in its design, I really mean it. The fourth villa option is seemingly suspended in the sky, accessible by a skywalk—it is the adult’s equivalent of a treehouse. The interior’s furnishings are also hung from the ceiling, and the lush greenery and sunlight pour in through the large glass windows.

Keemala promises guests a holistic wellness experience, offering a selection of traditional therapies and healing techniques. Treatment highlights include sound healing, shiatsu, somato-experiencing and trauma release, along with host of massages by world-class masters.

Set amidst the rainforests of Phuket Island’s west coast and only a 10-minute drive from the Patong beach, Keemala offers a truly invigorating sanctuary for guests who hope to escape whatever concrete jungle they hail from. Keemala’s jungle walkways, ocean experiences, and enchanting gardens will have you feeling relaxed, and ready to tackle that to-do list back home.
