“But some things we can all agree on: it has to delight, excite and surprise. A room ripe for seduction needs to do more than get the basics right: the hotel you think is home to the World’s Sexiest Bedroom will pull out all the stops to light your fire.”

Inspired by the Rung-Nok Clan (Nest Clan) who enjoyed an opulent life, Keemala’s eight Bird’s Nest Pool Villas are based on an intriguing mix of history and myth, loosely based on ancient tribal dwellings.

The clan would bathe under the moonlight believing that their souls would be replenished, which provides the inspiration for the beautiful villas. The private pool and outdoor sun deck offers splendid views of the forest and sea.
