Spa Property Facts: 

Keemala Phuket is an all pool villa wonderland set in the woodlands of Kamala in Phuket. Keemala embraces a cultural philosophy and brings it to life through distinctive design and experiences. The Keemala concept celebrates the culture of four fictional ancient Phuket tribes, the ‘Pa-Ta-Tea’ (Earth), the‘Khon-Jorn’ (Wanderers), the ‘We-ha’ (Sky), and the ‘Rung-Nok’ (Nest) people. Keemala harnesses their way of life and infuses it into the overall guest experiences. The spa treatments, wellness programs, gastronomy, activities and magical accommodation design all derive from the key attributes of the four tribes.

The unusual design and attention to details of Keemala sets it apart from typical resorts. The Clay Pool Cottages utilise earth and straw in the build, including the walls and some interior furniture. The Tent Pool Villas feature full canvas canopies as the roofing and the furniture imitates large wooden trunks ready to be packed as is the life of nomads. The stunning Tree Pool Houses appear to be suspended from trees and utilise some novel suspended furniture, and the Bird’s Nest Pool Villas are designed with an intricate and mesmerising web exterior with quirky interiors.

Spa Facts: 

Guests come to Keemala to pause and unwind from the stresses of modern day living. The Mala Spa embraces traditional healing approaches to the body, mind and soul, and integrates these with the best of modern pampering and benefiting regimes.

Whether you seek alignment or balance through massage and healing bodywork, a customised holistic program to deeply renew and refresh a sluggish mind and tired body, or just a rejuvenating, anti-ageing skin treatment, Mala Spa is the perfect sanctuary for your mind, body and soul.
