Deep within the lush foliage of Phuket’s rainforest, a fantasy resort will open its doors in September this year to offer guests unique accommodations with myth- inspired design concepts.

The 38-villa Keemala presents unusual cottages, villas and houses that transport guests into the private world of Mother Nature but yet pampers with spacious communal and outdoor spaces for relaxation, parties, fine dining and wellness activities. Featuring spaces ranging from 126 sq m to 185 sq m, guests have options such as hut-like medieval Clay Pool Cottages that ensconce them in an earthy ambience, Tent Pool Villas that invite the outdoors in with an airy atmosphere, two-level Tree Pool houses that take living in the woods to a whole new level, and Bird’s Nest Pool villas that beautifully blend natural materials with design for an opulent mood.

Each accommodation option comes with sumptuous bathroom facilities such as a monsoon shower, an outside shower and a standalone bathtub. Private pools and terraces are also givens, ensuring that guests have ample reflective moments to appreciate their surroundings. And if they can tear themselves away from their enchanting villas, Kalama beach and village as well as Patong beach are near enough for lively jaunts beyond the surrounds.
