Keemala Phuket ( is a new all-pool villa resort overlooking Kamala Village and the Andaman Sea that's just opened its doors.

Taking its inspiration from the early Phuket settlers, the resort's 16 clay pool cottages, seven tent pool villas, seven two-story tree pool houses and eight bird’s nest pool villas are joined together together by a network of jungle walkways.

The romantic picture is completed by a lush canopy of trees and a continuous stream-like body of running water that snakes its way through the hilly resort.

Rates start at B14,341 per night, while the resort also offers a range of holistic retreats starting with the 3-Day Purify (B35,000 per person or B66,000 per couple).
