Phuket's mountainous rain forests offers an opportunity for imaginative resorts to create something spectacularly exotic. Reminiscent of a centuries old storybook hamlet nestling in wooded hills with views extending to the ocean, Keemala Resort Phuket has indeed created a fairy tale destination unlike elsewhere on the island. Located near Kamala Beach it is the ultimate romantic escape where rustic luxury fuses with natural beauty.
All the villa and cottage types share some similarities, but are also very different in many ways with each depicting the lifestyle of the 7 mythical Keemala tribes. They all for example feature a private pool, natural elements like wood, stone floors, bamboo, bathrooms with oval tubs and outdoor monsoon showers. They all also feature extensive space starting at 120 sq.m, a high degree of privacy, and all are conducive to a tropical outdoor lifestyle.
In the thatched roof Clay Pool Cottages with floor to ceiling windows surrounding your cotton draped king size bed the rain forest scenery of trees and chirping birds peeking in is a magical start to the day.
The luxury Tent Pool Villa with a stone tub on the outdoor verandah from where you can revel in views of a forest valley below terminating against Phuket's rugged coastline will transport you all the way to Bilbo Baggins' Shire.
The finch nest shaped Tree Pool House is split over 2 floors. The bathroom has double stone wash basins, brass faucets, free standing tub and shower, and outdoor shower. Upstairs a bedroom leads to an outdoor terrace and downstairs the lounge leading to a semi circular pool is equipped with furniture suspended from the roof.
But as far as living in nature go Keemala will stir your senses in the Bird's Nest Pool Villa. Interiors are all stone and wood with a pool and outdoor rock bath enveloped by trees and beguiling views. Add to this personal villa hosts, and villas romantically set-up for honeymoon arrivals and the experience becomes truly priceless.
