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.

Before arriving at Keemala I have seen pictures and how beautiful the place looked but the hospitality there made my stay even more special. I was travelling alone and first vacation since COVID. It was just simply magical. Every detail was thought out and the hotel made sure I was well taken care of in every single step. Biggest compliment to Khun Golf Pattana he went extra mile to make sure just 2 day stay was unforgettable. Thank you so much for wonderful time. I will be sure to visit again.

I realise it's some time between staying and writing this but my family and I often think of Keemala with fond memories. We stayed in a Birds Nest room which was just amazing. From being greeted at the airport to being dropped off at our next stop, the service was fantastic. We travelled with our two children aged 6 and 8 at the time. They were warmly welcomed at the hotel. The manager and ladies in the restaurant took a particular shine to my son and doted on him. The manager even gave him and my daughter a Keemala slingshot each as a gift (sadly my son's was taken off him at the airport as it was in his hand luggage and considered a weapon 😬) We asked for extra bedding for the children which was provided free of charge and we used the lounger pads for beds. This worked well. It would have cost extra to have extra mattresses sent up. We ate in the restaurant on the first evening and the food was fantastic, breakfast was always a feast too. We used the shuttle service to the beach, this was quick and easy and stress free. We used the pool and pretty much had it to ourselves. October is still the off season so the hotel was quiet. We enjoyed happy hour lounging next to the pool and were sad we weren't there on a Wednesday when the drinks are free! Overall we loved Keemala, we couldn't fault it. Hopefully it won't be long before we can go back!
