Keemala in Phuket

It’s nice to be able to get away from the city every now and then and relax at a resort. Of course, a getaway wouldn’t be worth it if it wasn’t out of sight and out of mind.

Keemala Phuket is a resort hidden within a rainforest and next to the beach and nature.

The villas here look like weaved straw huts on the outside, but the inside looks like a modern villa with wooden and stone interiors, depending on the building.

The Bird’s Nest Pool Villa, for example, comes with its own pool and sticks out from the side of the hill covered in plants. The resort’s mid-tier villa costs ฿21,521 (~USD683) per night. Their Clay Pool Cottages costs ฿14,411 (~USD457) per night. Time to start saving!

The inside has wash basins and bathtub that looks carved from a big boulder. The bathroom has a wooden finish that resembles a spa but with modern bathroom amenities.

From an angle, they look like a hut village out of a Star Wars or Avatar film.
