CLASH OF CLANS. To some, the game of luxury hospitality may seem like the same old, same old. That is until you come across Keemala (Keemala Moo 6, Kathu, Phuket, Thailand; +66 76 335 802; keemala.com)
Tucked in the hills and the lush woodlands of Phuket, Keemala is an extensive resort that celebrates four separate clans represented by four types of accommodation. Take the Sky Clan with its Tree Pool Houses for instance. Believed to be a clan that breeds creative people, the corresponding villas are elevated above ground and accessible by a skywalk. Meanwhile, the Wanderer Clan fits the Tent Pool Villas, a semipermanent-styled home filled with accented interiors depicting wildlife. There are two other and no-less interesting clans to get to know, but, for all it’s worth, Keemala is truly something to be experienced first-hand, not only read about.
