Love Phuket but not the crowds? A new, über-luxe resort lets you stay in an enchanting, quiet rainforest retreat just 10 minutes’ drive from Patong’s party beach.
Keemala Phuket, the latest addition to the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection, is set on a stretch of wooded beach among trees, streams and waterfalls at the quieter northern end of Patong.
There are 38 private villas offering four different styles of luxury – and seriously cool – accommodation: clay cottages, tree houses, and bird’s nest and tent villas. Every villa has a private pool and terrace, and jungle walkways connect them with other parts of the resorts, including the three dining areas and a heavenly spa.
