4 Years of the Iconic Keemala

When it opened in 2015, Keemala attracted overwhelming acclaim for its iconic design.

Design that transported guests into a world of traditions and lifestyle influenced by Phuket’s storied tribes. In the time since, this pioneering resort has led the way in design and matured as an intimate hideaway, exuding a unique fusion of sophistication, authenticity and attentiveness to its surroundings.

Keemala has inspired it’s guests and the hospitality industry well outside of its domain with its exquisite simplicity and unspoiled retreat from everyday life. Now with over 20 global and regional awards in its repertoire, the resort continues to set the standard for creating and delivering genuine, mindful experiences that immerse guests in the essence of Phuket and Thai culture. All the while, honouring the integrity of natural resources and promoting a balanced lifestyle through an extensive holistic living and spa programme.

Over 100,000 travellers from across the globe have stepped through the majestic Welcome Pavilion in the four years since Keemala opened its doors. In its efforts to preserve Phuket’s fragile environment, the resort has implemented comprehensive sustainability initiatives such as the elimination of plastics, water conservation and recycling, their ethical animal treatment policy and a small-scale farm-to-table approach.

As a result of this commitment to sustainability, Keemala has not produced single-use plastic bottles or drinking straws since it’s opening; preventing approximately 200,000 plastic bottles and 80,000 straws from reaching the ocean, among other significant environmental contributions.

In the last few months, the resort has worked with the talented Alex Teuscher to build a stunning showcase of the resort’s ethos. The entirely new series of images is a breathtaking look into Keemala’s cultural philosophy and immersion with nature. See the full gallery below.
