Keemala Phuket – hobbit village or settlement from the future?

Phuket’s stock is rising by the minute as more and more luxury, independent resorts spring up — each seemingly more luxurious than the last. The latest to announce its opening is Keemala Phuket, which will open its doors in August.

The appeal of this unusual resort — which is part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World — are the dwellings themselves, which range from villas to tents, clay cottages and tree houses, with woven spa huts that are created to look like the homes of some of Phuket’s earliest settlers — but quite significantly more luxurious.

The theme is based on four ancient tribes, the pa-ta-pea clan, who incorporated earth into their walls, the khon-jorn clan, who were more nomadic, the we-ha clan, who elevated their homes from the ground and the rung-nok people, who were thought to lead opulent, private lives.

The location has a glamping feel to it, surrounded by thick jungle, waterfalls and streams — and each of the 38 dwellings in the property come with their own private pool. There’s also a main swimming pool, three dining areas and a spa. Each aspect of the property, from the villas to the cuisine and the spa treatments are linked back to the tribes the resort pays homage to. A little luxury with your history lesson? That’s something we can definitely get on board with.
