Travelers' Choice

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 partner proposed to me at Keemala in December 2022. The area, which the hotel staff had decorated, was incredibly beautiful and they were so kind and congratulatory after the engagement. Zom was absolutely lovely. I would love to come back with my FIANCE soon and relive this very special trip.

We couldn’t have imagined a better experience for our first trip to Thailand! The entire staff was friendly and treated us like family. Our villa was very clean and luxurious. The staff met every request with a smile. We will absolutely stay at Keemala again!

Booked using a category 7 Hyatt certificate Check-in: very personalized process with tea and snacks. They explained the globalist benefits thoroughly and gave us the room tour. Was told they would bring complimentary champagne, but I think they forgot Upgrade: booked clay room, but upgraded to tent pool villa at check-in Location: secluded, 10 min grab ride to kamala beach. Breakfast: had it served in room, delicious options. Conclusion: If you’re looking for a romantic getaway at an aspirational property, this fits the requirement. So many spots to take photos for Instagram

Writing this review from the perspective of a couple who's travel budget never includes 5* stays and stayed here as a special occasion for our 30ths. We stayed for 2 nights on a "dine and stay" package which I belive might have been a special package following covid. We stayed in a Clay pool cottage and had 2 dinners, cocktail and canapé and afternoon tea included. We thought our experience was fantastic! Was is pricey - yes. Was it worth it? Also yes. Its not just the stunning views and accommodation but all the little added extras. When we arrived we were greeted with flower garlands and during check in received a lemon tea and Thai snack. When we arrived at our clay pool cottage I fell in love immediately. The bed with all the pillows we pre-selected (yes you can pre-select your pillow type), the coffee facilities, the (not so mini) bar with free soft drinks, our terrace with infinity pool and a bath that was to die for along with an outdoor (and indoor) shower. All the products supplied were first class (again you can request extras e.g shaving kit) and my favourite was the complimentary mosquito repellent (I went through 3 bottles of this). The villa was immaculate, bed comfortable, shower and bath perfect. The resort is also amazing. The scenery is just beautiful. The common area pool was quiet and we had the pool bar to ourselves (allowing plenty pics at the waterfall). The bar does happy hour where drinks are 2for1 which is a great deal and the quality of the drinks was fantastic. We enjoyed walking around but you can call for a buggy any time and they are pretty quick getting to you. The restaurant is also fantastic. Breakfast is wonderful with a buffet of continental foods, including every flavour or jam, and you can order anything you like from the menu. Dinner was also fantastic. We had roses laid on our table (nice surprise) and service was excellent. We had scallops, beef, and the indian set. All were great. We had it included so had set menus. This also meant we were not bothered by price. It would be expensive to eat here every night. However you can walk into the local town in 10/15 minutes (although it is hilly) and get local food there. At check out, reception helped sort a taxi (bolt) as there was a landslide so transport was a bit tricky. Overall, yes this place is very expensive (especially for thailand) but if you can get a deal or go out of season (or just have plenty money to spend) I would reccomend staying here for at least 2 nights (longer if you can). Particularly if you have a special occasion.

The hotel is located on the hill near Kamala beach. It’s peachful area. The view from the hotel is hilltop view far from the beach. Decoration is excellent. It’s unique and beautiful. It’s signature photo spot in Keemala.   Staffs are extremely perfect. They are kind and polite. Pool clay cottage is lovely. Room is large, clean and comfortable. Restroom is very large. There are indoor and outdoor shower in the room. The big jacuzzi in the center of restroom. In room pool size is comfortable for soaking. Minibar non-alc is free of charge. Thai sweet is served every day during stay.  There is only on restaurant. Dinner and breakfast is very good. Food are varieties and tasty. Coffee and Cocktail is very good. Spa is excellent. Staff, treatment room is also great.

This hotel has been on my bucket list for a while so we definitely had to book the Bird’s nest villa for a night when we stayed in Phuket. The room is beautiful and is definitely as it appears in the pictures. We had stayed at some very modern hotels before this so we did notice a difference between them and Keemala but nothing to lose points for. The lighting in the room and bathroom is very dim, which I suppose goes with the aesthetics but just definitely not a space you could use to get ready in. Our room number 703 appeared to be the only one where other people couldn’t see into our pool, apart from a small area on the side. We could see into all the neighbouring pools, so it’s something to be conscious of if you are booking this expecting privacy. The food in the restaurant was faultless I have to say, however as you’d expect the prices were high. The one issue I had here was the front desk. We asked for a buggy to take us down to the restaurant as it was dark and raining heavily, they said they were sending someone but nobody came. We requested airport transfer when we checked in. I also asked the night before and the morning of. When we went to check out it was as if I had never mentioned airport transfer. This was incredibly frustrating as it took 4 times for this to finally be booked, it’s not something I’d expect at a resort of this calibre and the service overall really let the place down. I’d recommend for 1-3 nights, particularly if booking for a honeymoon.

My wife and I had the most amazing experience at Keemala. We booked a Tree Trop Villa and from the moment we were welcomed by the kind & friendly staff, we were completely blown away. The villas are nothing short of amazing, while the service during our stay was world class. Not to mention the food served in the restaurant was some of the best we have eaten in Thailand. Do yourself a favour and stay at this unique boutique resort.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your stay and 5 star review on tripadvisor. I appreciate very much for the feedback on your recent stay with us and the team is very happy to learn that you were enjoying our resort, kind staff, food and amazing villas. It is such a pleasure to read your amazing comments and I’m certain that the team would feel the same. They work very hard to extend the warmest hospitality, which Thailand is well-known for, and leave guests with a feeling of not wanting to leave or, like yourself, wanting to come back again and again. Thank you again for choosing Keemala during your visit to Phuket and for recommending us to others. My team and I look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future. Enchanting Regards Jason Allen Villarino

Honeymoon experience! Worth 5/5 rate for many reasons: Staff are super polite, kind and interactive. The room was very clean, a mixture of modern and nature style. The view and style of the hotel is beyond any imagination. And the food is clean , tasty and delicious. Definitely coming back to this hotel

Just stayed five days at Keemala in the pool villa. It’s so gorgeous, amazing location and having your own pool is wonderful. The main pool is also beautiful with a beech bar in the pool. The food in the restaurant was faultless and the staff can’t do enough for you. Mai made our stay feel like home from home. The whole resort runs like clock work, from getting buggies to zip you around the resort to having a massage. I’d definitely stay here again, we all loved it. Thank you to all the staff…you made us feel really special.
