Keemala is located on the west coast of Phuket, close to Patong and Surin Beach. Nicknamed the Pearl of the Andaman, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and is home to wooded hills, plenty of tropical greenery and a halo of white sand beaches. Mai Kho is Phuket's biggest beach, spanning along the coast for 11 km and partly surrounded by undeveloped scenery, filled with pine and palm trees.
The second largest beach is Mai Khao, which is quieter but home to lots of restaurants and beach clubs. Also nearby are beautiful beaches Karon and Kata, one of the prettiest spots in Phuket. For something livelier, make your way to Patong, where its main strip, Bangla Road, is a hub for bars, shops and more.
Keemala Hotel is 40 minutes from Phuket Airport.
