A holiday experience of the special kind from the bird's perspective

The design-centric Keemala, built into the forest hills just up from Kamala Beach, is a welcome alternative to Phuket's more traditional offerings.

The 38 villas, grouped into cottages, tents, tree houses and sort of bird's nets, drawn upon tribal designs paired with posh perks, like private plunge pools, outdoor showers and deep soaking tubs with sea views.

Spend an afternoon at the organic Mala Spa, where signature treatments incorporate a wide array of essential oils.

Honeymooners and lovebirds will find the proximity of neighboring villas to be a buzz kill to their privacy, but the staff is gracious, efficient and nearly invisible, so won't interfere with anyone's idyll.

Rooms start from approx. 16.000 THB (26.300 RUB)
