Small, intimate, barefoot luxury

Located on the northern tip of the beautiful island of Phi Phi and nestled on a prime stretch of soft white sand beach, the boutique Zeavola Resort is only an hour by speed boat from Phuket and is the perfect getaway in which to recharge in the midst of a barefoot luxury setting.

Set in ten-acres of tropical landscape the resort's 53 teakwood bungalow-style dwellings feature modern amenities and contemporary features and are inspired by the charming dwellings found in rural Thai villages. Opt for a beachfront suite for ultimate tropical living or explore the supreme diving opportunities close to the resort with a visit to the resort’s PADI dive centre and experience the wonders of the surrounding reefs. Alternatively enjoy the waters of the resort’s greenery lined swimming pool, play volleyball on the beach or relax in the soothing settings of the Zeavola spa.

Zeavola exceeds guests' expectations with impeccable service, an excellent spa and fine international and Thai cuisine. Not to be missed at Zeavola is the romantic dining experience on the beach.

  • PADI Dive centre
  • Spacious suite accommodation

"Every Friday, the Zeavola team offer a complimentary lunch to the children at the neighbouring school - guests can join in if they want to. I found it to be a really unique experience"

Charlotte

Destination Specialist

"Zeavola is peaceful and romantic, and you probably wont want to leave. But if you do fancy a night out or some shopping time, there is a very reasonably priced boat service to Tonsai Bay  and back, every evening."

Island paradise - simply amazing!

Melbourne, Australia

An overall amazing experience at this eco-friendly resort, with staff anticipating our every need. This was demonstrated from the beginning with our transfer from Phuket which was expected to be by speedboat. After a dreadful storm the day before Zeavola reorganised our transport for our safety with an earlier pick up and transfer by large ferry and long boat. This was seamless with their representatives at every point to meet us. Our accommodation in a garden setting was perfect with drinking water, fruit basket, aircon, fans, internet and coffee making at our disposal. The outdoor shower was our favourite feature. The bath products were fragrant and high quality but unfortunately I couldn't buy them to take home. The spacious villa was clean and the plan suited our relaxing needs. The food was exceptional and fresh. From superb breakfasts, beach lunches and varying evening dinning experiences – all were top quality. The extensive menu covered Thai, Italian and western tastes. My favourites were the seafood dishes and the East meets West dish I had on our 3rd night Tortellini Paneng Ped that features duck breast, home made pasta and an amazing sauce (which I must add the recipe was kindly shared with me. Thank you!) We were big fans of gin & tonics and local beer during the day at the beach with cocktails in the evening. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. All were charming, obliging, happy to assist and genuinely cared about us. The medical services were A1 with a most professional and competent nurse on hand. We were sad to leave after 8 days but fortunate to be able to go I the speedboat at this time. Another great experience. Full credit to management in running a wonderful unique resort in an environmentally friendly manner. We will have such happy memories of Zeavola for years to come. 5 star traditional Thai Resort.

A little piece of blissful island luxury! Relaxing and private - a must stay.

Brisbane, Australia

Positives Zeavola Resort was booked as part of my honeymoon. The resort itself is situated aways from the main 'party' area of Phi Phi Island (Tonsai), however - this is the reason we booked here. We wanted uninterrupted relaxation time in order to experience the island and it's beauty. The resort is set on the beach and backs up into the forest, and has its rooms nicely spread so you have privacy and can walk in barefoot comfort. The rooms were always kept tidy, reception only a call away for exceptional room service, comfortable bed and fresh linen, and excellent products for the shower. You can enjoy food and refreshing cocktails right by the waters edge, with extremely polite and attentive staff members. The on-site spa is exquisite and a must do, we used this service multiple times to help fully unwind after our wedding. The Tacada beach-side bar/cafe had excellent food and drink, and the resorts accompanying dive facility is a must-do (this was one of the highlights of our entire Thailand honeymoon). The on-site General Manager Leon was attentive and checked in with us on our first morning to ensure our room was as we hoped for, and again - sought feedback upon our check out. Staying at Zeavola definitely was a fabulous way to end our honeymoon, having left feeling very rejuvenated. Improvement Areas The Baxil on-site restaurant, whilst offering well made set-meals and excellent coffee, needs to improve a little on its buffet offerings - in particular the heated food, which at times wasn't warm enough to properly enjoy. All other breakfast food (noodle soups, fresh fruit and baked goods) were excellent, as too were the breakfast staff. One minor improvement on reflection I could mention is in regards to the Love Wave spa treatment (which my wife and I did in the same room together), which offers a mix of massage, scrub, facial and foot massage). Whilst not detracting from the excellent experience of both the service and friendliness of staff, my wife later informed me that during my foot massage my particular masseuse was using her spare hand scrolling through her phone. Whilst I didn't realise, as I still had a refreshing towelette over my eyes, my wife who was at that point sitting up having her head massaged and could see noticed it. The foot massage itself was still great - but I feel as though unless it was an emergency, checking her phone could have waiting til we had finished the Love Wave treatment (the most expensive and luxurious of the spa's offerings).
