Unique boutique villa resort

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.

Lovely until the terrifying transfer to Phuket

Cheltenham, United Kingdom

Zeavola resort is great for a few days of relaxation in a beautiful and tranquil environment. Accommodation is unique being rustic Thai with an indoor/outdoor vibe and food is fantastic. Unfortunately my review has to be ‘poor’ due to our speedboat transfer back to Phuket, something arranged by the resort. We had experienced a few days of rain and the weather was not great on the day of transfer. We were told the boat would be a “bit bumpy” but nothing prepared us for the terrifying journey that we encountered. I am not scared easily and like planes, boats and thrill rides but it was truly terrible. Waves higher than the boat, tossing, turning and crashing in the water for over 45 mins. People were screaming, being sick, praying and shouting that we needed to turn back. My partners heart-rate raised to 204 beats per minute even though he is relatively young and healthy, a dangerous and potentially life threatening heart rate. It doesn’t get higher than 170 during intense exercise which will give you a flavour of how scary it was. Life jackets were tossed out around 10 minutes into the journey by the two lads working for the resort. We genuinely thought we were going to capsize and were thinking through what we needed to do if that happened. To makes matters worse and somewhat bizarre, as we docked into the harbour a member of staff who had a Zeavola top on greeted us laughing saying that we shouldn't have gone out in the speedboat in that weather as it was “too dangerous”. Oh really?! Truly unbelievable. The experience really shook us up and tainted the rest of our trip. Totally unacceptable that a resort like Zeavola put our lives at risk in this way. It was only a year ago that over 40 tourists lost their lives when a boat capsized near Phuket in bad weather. It was sheer luck and thanks to the skill of the captain which meant we made it without serious repercussions. This is by no means an over-exaggeration. The conditions should have been checked thoroughly and alternative arrangements should have been made. I couldn’t care less if I missed my flight or a night on another island if it meant being safe. I’m sure the other guests on the boat would strongly agree. Shame on you Zeavola for not looking after your guests from start to finish. I did give you a few days to respond over email but received nothing which left me no choice but to leave this review.

Tranquil Retreat

Halls Creek, Australia

We received a warm welcome at Zeavola after a complimentary pick up by long tail boat that met the ferry in Laemtong Bay (pays to let them know when and how you’re arriving). All staff were friendly and professional throughout our four night stay. Villas are set amongst the trees and laid out to maximise privacy. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and characterful, with a large air-conditioned bedroom, generous outdoor living area and spacious bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower options. Wifi, tea and filter coffee facilities, minibar and fridge were also provided, along with personal touches like the small gifts left on the bed each evening. We regularly dined at Zeavola’s beach-side and indoor restaurants with a comprehensive breakfast buffet, delicious food, drinks and attentive service, though other restaurants and bars are within an easy walk away along the beach. We did a number of dives with the onsite diving and activities centre (see separate review) and the service was equally good. This is a beautiful and tranquil setting delivered in a eco-friendly way. Thank you Zeavola for a wonderful experience.
