If you’ve never seen the movie “Ewoks”, then allow us to describe what Keemala Phuklet’s accommodations look like. They resemble those Ewoks huts elevated among the trees but it’s anything but ordinary as these rooms have all the modern comforts. 

The rooms have modern and well-kept interiors with comfortable beds and furniture that are perfect if you want to relax after a long day of trekking around the site. You can also book a villa room here for your family if you want to have your own plunge pool.

Keemala Phuket is obviously inspired by ancient Phuket architecture which you’ll love. We also think this theme is perfect as the property is located by lush greenery which looks amazing if you view them from up above the elevated villas and balconies.

The restaurant at the hotel is also perfect for travellers such as yourself. It serves a hearty breakfast so you can start your day on a high note and they also offer cocktails for when you want to chill out and relax after a day of heavy touring.

Pro tip:

  • The different areas of the hotel are separated by steep hills so it’s best that you wear good hiking or walking shoes when going from one location to the next.

There’s also the option for you to just stay within the glamping site. You can avail of some of the services offered by the hotel to further relax and rejuvenate such as massage therapies and other spa treatments along with access to the fitness centre.

Their breakfast buffet is also something you shouldn’t miss especially if you’re a health buff into fruits, yoghurt, and fresh milk. However, this property is also near other restaurants in the area so you can check them out too if you want something different.

Pro tip:

  • The glamping site itself is comfortable and for the most part mosquito-free. However, since this is Koh Samui, you need to bring insect repellent especially if you decide to head out to the other nearby areas such as the beach.

This location can also offer you some of the most exciting but at the same time relaxing activities ever. They have rainforest trekking where you can walk in relative peace through the woods surrounding the site and also some lake kayaking.
