Although I’m a shoestring traveller who spends the least possible on a clean place to sleep, there are a handful places that just drag me to my knees until I get there. That was the case with me and Keemala resorts, Phuket.
Unless you come from Amazonian jungles, the Keemala resort located near Kamala beach in Phuket would pull you like a magnet. I remember surfing for tickets and hotels and I came across Keemala resorts, with their mesmerizing pictures and planned a 3 day trip in Phuket; majorly because I wanted to stay here.
These are the top 5 things you should know about this place
Birds-Nest styled villas – Split in 4 different categories the homes look like a birds nest with individual pool, suave service, food and spa on call. You would have to literally drag yourself out of here on the checkout date.
Design inspiration – The place is inspired by the 4 clans encountered by maritime silk route traders of yesteryear; who had to take shelter in an unknown island called “Jungceylon Cape”, now commonly known as the Phuket Island. The 4 clans had different understanding and approach to life and the same is reflected, in the design philosophy of Keemala resorts.
Awards – The resort has been consistent with the charts too. Always voted as one of the finest hotels across the globe by a number of magazines and publications. Just last year it was rated as the best hotel by Conde Nast.
Alluring – Sweeping green and seductive blues, that’s all you get to see when you stay here. A little away from the beach tucked on a mountain. This is one place where only gods can disturb you.
Visiting holistic practitioners – Every month of the year has a visiting healer/practitioner of some kind. For most of the people, this is the very idea of taking up a retreat or spa session. If you are a believer of these things, I suggest you check the dates and then make your bookings.
- The town of Kamala is small and has a Muslim dominated population, any meal on the street or restro is safe and halal.
- Keemala being a larger than life resort offers the global cuisine and alcohol, which you can rule out and drive to the nearby places. They are barely 10 minutes away.
- Patong beach or the main tourist attraction of Phuket is 30 minutes away by car. That place also has a number of halal food options.
Address: While coming from Phuket, It is on the first right turn before you hit the main town. The landmark is a sideboard which reads Kamala.
