Stunning Phuket resort Keemala opens amid lore of the jungle

Located within the woodlands of Kamala, Keemala embraces a Thai cultural philosophy and blends the fictional history of four indigenous clans with the luxury of an upscale resort.

Designed by Thailand based Architect Space, with Pisit Aongskultong from Pisud Design Company managing the resort’s creative vision and interior designs, the design is inspired by stories, cultures, traditions, and lifestyles of early Phuket settlers and offers an unusual alternative to most hotel experiences in the region.

Keemala offers four avant-garde villa 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.

The tent-like structure and wildlife-inspired prints and textures of the seven “Tent Pool Villas” reflect the nomadic way of life of the Khon-Jorn (wanderer) clan, who consisted of foragers, performers and traders. With a master bedroom and separate living space, the villa size is 140sqm.

The seven “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 four guests.

The Rung-Nok (nest) community inspired the design of the eight “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.

Keemala also offers a range of curated spa treatments, wellness activities and holistic living retreats for those seeking to unwind from the stresses of modern day life. Mala Spa has eight treatment rooms alongside a Thai massage pavilion, steam and sauna rooms, fitness centre, and yoga and meditation spaces. Natural, paraben and cruelty-free spa products by VOYA, Siam Botanicals, and Spa Ritual are used for all treatments.

Renowned guest practitioners from around the world will take up residency at Keemala throughout the year and offer specialised retreats.

During December and January, Keemala will welcome visits from Jenny Ostling, who specialises in “Arvigo Therapy and Holistic Massage”, Andy Mack who will be in residence to offer “Dissolve Therapy”, “Tibetan Singing Bowl Healing” with Akiko Igarashi, “Clinical Aromatherapy & Acupuncture” with Victoria Kirkwood and “Arvigo Therapy & Acupuncture” with Lisa Levine.
