Thailand: Keemala

In July this year, Phuket opened its borders to welcome vaccinated tourists after having its borders shut for over a year due to Covid-19. Under its Phuket Sandbox programme, all you need is a negative Covid-19 test and proof that you have been fully vaccinated before you can roam Phuket freely and without having to serve a quarantine. 

If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful place away from the crowds to spend some downtime, try Keemala, a luxurious rainforest retreat that seamlessly weaves itself into its surroundings with waterfalls, tree houses that seem to be suspended from the canopy itself and jungle walkways.
