Hugely Anticipated New Phuket Resort Opens

Located within the lush woodlands of Kamala in Phuket, Keemala has opened, embracing a Thai cultural philosophy that blends the fictional history of four indigenous clans with the decadence of an upscale resort. Designed by Thailand based talent Architect Space, with Pisit Aongskultong from Pisud Design Company managing the resort's creative vision and interior designs, the 38 villas have been inspired by stories, cultures, traditions, and lifestyles of these Phuket settlers and is a stark contrast to most hotel accommodation.


Keemala offers four avant-garde villa choices all complete with private pools and offer a range of both sea and mountain views. The sixteen 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. The seven imaginative 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, while the ‘Rung-Nok’ (nest) community inspired the design of the eight Bird's Nest Pool VillasThis 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.
