There are not many places where you can stay in a treehouse suspended in a rainforest. But the luxurious Thai retreat of Keemala is one of them.
This rustic, yet lavish escape, not only offers the chance to sleep in a tree house, but you can also fly high in a bird’s nest villa or more family-friendly tent pool villa or clay pool cottage. The 38 villas, which are inspired by fictitious Phuket settlers, all have private pools and are connected by a network of jungle walkways.
The seven treehouses reflect the way of life of the We-ha (Sky) Clan who built their homes elevated from the ground for better creativity. You can enjoy views of the rainforest from these two-storey villas which feature suspended furniture, cocoon-like beds and semi-circular pool.
Dining at Keemala can be enjoyed in the main Mala Restaurant or more casual Cha-La Poor Bar. Healthy Living Cuisine is available on both menus and you can enjoy a champagne picnic or romantic dinner at your chosen spot in the resort. Experience the ‘Feast for the Senses’ and learn more about local cuisine from the hotel chef with a visit to the market and organic garden.
Spend an indulgent day in the Mala Spa where its eight spacious treatment rooms are designed for a multisensory experience. You can also receive a fitness schedule which includes jungle treks and coastal walks to Kamala Beach only 1.5 kilometres away. In high season, you’ll find waves ideal for surfing, while the more tranquil waters of high season is perfect for swimming or snorkelling.
