Zeavola Resort

Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

The hotel

Beneath a canopy of tropical trees and stately palms on Phi Phi Island, the village-like Zeavola Resort is the definition of barefoot luxury. Sandy pathways tempt you into the greenery from the white powder of Laem Tong Beach, before opening to reveal the resort’s sumptuous spa, pool, and teakwood suites, featuring al fresco rainfall showers. The forest also hides Zeavola’s Thai restaurant, Baxil, while the beach is the setting for barefoot dining on the sands at the Med-inspired Tacada. Within Phi Phi National Marine Park, this all-suite island escape’s a mere boat trip from turtle- and fish-filled snorkelling and scuba diving paradise.

We were now 9 days in Zeavola, it was fantastic ... Every day delicious breakfast with fresh eggs and whatever else your heart desires! At breakfast, the manager or general manager come to each table and inquire if everything is perfect at the resort or if they can fulfill a wish, you feel like you are in a big family. Lunch and dinner are very demanding, there is something for everyone and it tastes great! In the evening you sit with your feet in the sand on the beach with candle lighting, everything was very professional. We had at the sensational Hellooween party with the uniquely decorated buffet a super funny and nice evening with the other guests we had previously met at the cocktail party, it is a pity that there are no more cocktail evenings! All in all, it was fantastic days, even if the weather did not always play along, but you can pull back in the beautiful wooden villas and enjoy the day on the terrace! Thanks to the whole Zeavola team for these nice days, we will be back !! Nice Greetings Alex Read less

Our stay at Zeavola was an excellent break from our busy schedule. Beyond the relaxing atmosphere of the villa, the next best part was the staff and excellent service.

Zeavola resort is located in a stunning, green shaded spot on Phi Phi Don with several tropical birds to wake up to every morning with their individual songs. The resort allows easy access via speedboats or long tail boats to further interesting and serine islands in the area at minimal expense. The rooms are comfortable and authentic, but in some areas may need a touch up to make it even more memorable for visitors. The resort pool is stunning and the water quality is exceptional! The food served in the restaurant is really outstanding, thanks to chef Satay and his caring staff. We highly recommend the Thai menu option with some of the best Asian food we have had in south east Asia. One further aspect that sets this resort apart is the staff! Such friendly and caring people. A special word of thanks to everyone including Bankie, Dao, Chakie, Kob and all those who contributed to make our stay enjoyable. A final word of appreciation goes to the management of the resort who have taken the extra effort to reduce the resorts’ plastic footprint substantially by only using paper straws, glass bottles and canvas instead of plastic bags. We highly recommend this resort for families who want to break away from the rush of city life and spend a few days in a natural setting with lots of sun, birds, trees, white beaches and smiles.

The location is idyllic; set right on the beach with individual villas set back in the trees full of birdlife. The villas are beautifully appointed with traditional Thai wooden and thatched roof construction combined with airconditoned luxury. Little touches and attention to detail make a great impression such as quaint little gifts left on the bed each night by the turn-down service and fresh fruit being left in a woven container on the deck each afternoon. The beach is sandy and very safe but timing is recommended as it is a long walk to get to more than ankle-depth at low tide but at that time you can basically walk and then a short paddle to a great reef for snorkelling. The food is great!! But the standout feature that made our stay so wonderful was the smiling happiness, friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. This is a testament to the leadership by the management team of Lion, Florian and Jeffrey. Special mention of wonderful staff such as Banky, Oat, Sa, Nom, Dao and Jakof. We were sad to say goodbye and miss you all already. Paul & Mansour Read less
