Zeavola is the definition of barefoot luxury and one of the most sustainable hotels in Thailand: This charming retreat is a jungle eco-resort and themed to be a Thai Village from over 30 years ago, without missing all the amenities and services of a typical 5 Star Hotel. Grass-roofed teakwood villas blend with traditional Thai influences and a charming feel rustic. You won't find golden faucets and white marble here. Together with the tropical jungle, its sand paths, and the authentic Zeavolians is what will spark the magic. Zeavola is located on Phi Phi Don’s northeast coast and is only reachable by boat. Away from the hustle and bustle of Tonsai, the main village, and pier of Phi Phi Islands. There are no streets, cars, or motorbikes. Zeavola’s, Zann Zanook Activity, and 5 Star Padi Dive center offer professional diving. They also guided island-hopping and snorkeling tours. The Activity Center provides complimentary sports equipment so guests can play volleyball or frisbee on the beach or enjoy free kayaks. Before booking, ensure that your flights are in line with our boat transfers. The resort recommends that international travelers plan a day before and after departure on the mainland. This will help to ease your travel stress and any weather-related timeline changes. Insider Tip Stay a minimum of two nights to get the feel and the understanding of what the Zeavola is trying to create What to bring Mosquito spray, sun blocker, your positive energy For more information, please visit our official website or contact us directly.

My fiancée and I just spent 5 amazing days at this wonderful hotel on the island Koh Phi Phi . It truly stands out as one of the best, if not the best, small resort we have ever visited . The accommodations , personal attention , location , ease and professionalism make for an unforgettable experience . Memories are made here 🙏

I don’t want to sound to negative. The resort is beautiful. The little cottage have a lovely colonial feel, the breakfast is very good and wifi worked perfectly well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. However, I am surprised that it is a member of the „small luxury hotels of the world“ and here are the reasons: 1) The Beach: it could be lovely, but it is really a large harbour with boats coming and going constantly. To the resort’s defence, there are other resorts and restaurants on the beach, but one would hope in a bit of coordination. Yes, an area has been cordoned off for the guests safety, but that’s not what I expected. It seems that one has to go on a tour to snorkel and/or swim properly. More importantly, every day I found a large glass full of broken glass. The beach was also littered with plastic and other rubbish. We highlighted this to management and to their credit they did do a bit of cleaning thereafter, but we still found broken glass. Beach chairs were not cleaned daily. 2) The restaurant: Whilst breakfast was very good, dinner was not the best and a bit expensive, particularly if you wanted Thai food. Thankfully there are little restaurants on the beach on can go to (I strongly recommend Malee Seafood). 3) The Spa: massages were inconsistent and expensive compared to other more luxurious resorts we stayed at, such as Pimalai. 4) The cottages: Be mindful that some cottages are on a hill, which you may or may not like. Admittedly we did not like our hilltop cottage and we were offered another much nicer place 5) Location: If you are a sun lover, be mindful that the beach has sun only until early afternoon (in November). In short, not a bad resort at all, but perhaps overpriced for what it is and with lots of room for improvement.

The cutest boutique hotel on the beach. Perfect mix of beach and jungle. We wish we could stay longer!!! We even checked to extend our stay loved it so much. We used the outdoor shower often. Be sure to bring bug spray! Private beach was overall pretty quiet, except for the occasional tractors, bringing in gas from the boats, as there is no dock or pier. Staff was very attentive and family. Breakfast buffet was best we have ever seen!!!!

We had a wonderful & relaxing stay at Zeavola. The (almost) private beach, clear & calm waters & the view from it is breath taking. Eco Friendly resort where you can walk around barefoot. The breakfast spread was the best we’ve ever seen. From the moment we reached, Lion (General Manager) & his team ensured that we had a very comfortable stay. The only challenge could be getting to the resort (it's expensive too). Nevertheless, it's a hidden gem & a must visit in a lifetime :)

Zeavola is a little slice of heaven on earth....There are simply not enough adjectives to describe how wonderful our stay was. The guest experience provided by the Zeavola team is second to none and we are forever grateful to Lion and his team for helping us to create such special memories. The Zeavola experience is unique and we feel so privileged for our time and experience there. If you are looking for paradise and soul quenching break then Zeavola should be your go to resort. Needless to say we are already planning our return trip. Thank you to EVERYONE for a wonderful time at Zeavola. See you again in 2023.

Location is great.right on private beach .never seen sand so soft and white .you can walk around resort completely barefoot . Rooms are very authentic village style hut with modern amenities. Different expirence. Though washroom is not directly attach to room so little problem there. Restaurant has very good ambience and variety of buffet dishes.veg options are very limited though.so trouble for vegetarian as there is no eating place nearby. Staff very good,polite ,helpfull and fast in service. Two things was letdown and for me and should be looked upon by resort. 1.resort didn't provide transport from ferry poin at phi phi to resort.almost all other resort even 3* provide that service. We have 5 rooms for 2 nights so as a good will gesture they should provide that boat.we had to spend 3000baht for that. 2. We have 5 rooms booked for a single group and we informed them on mail well in advance to provide all rooms together but still they split the rooms in 2+3 configuration at Different lanes .

Dear Khun Viren, Thank you very much for your enthusiasm and your praise. It was indeed our pleasure to host you at the Zeavola Resort. Assigning rooms is like a jigsaw puzzle. Especially when we are running a full hotel, it is very tricky to arrange all rooms close to each other. We are trying our best to fulfill every request, and I am sorry that, in your case, it was unfortunately not possible. The Zeavola Resort is arranging boat transfers to the main pier at Tonsai Village, but indeed for a charge. Thank you again for your review and we are wishing you all the best, Lion and the Zeavola Family

I have travelled to over 51 countries and stayed in hundreds of outstanding hotels. Simply put this is one of the best ever. Why? 1. Clear and clean ocean, safe beach, soft sand and great snorkeling. 2. Unique 5 star living spaces with attention to every detail. 3. Food, perfect and great selection. 4. Service level really hard to beat. They take care of you to ensure that you you have memorable experience. Thai people are happy people anyway but this goes further here. This really is a happy place! 5. ECO friendly in every respect. Please ask the GM what they done here to ensure they are respectful to our planet. You will ask yourself why more hotels don’t follow their approach. 6. A general manager that really cares and makes sure your stay is an experience of a life time. We are already planning our next stay but this time we are bringing family and friends so that they can experience what we have discovered here. This hotel and location may be a little more expensive than others around but you will not be disappointed with your choice, believe me. Safe travels and great experiences!

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we already can’t wait to go back! Zeavola is one of the most unique luxury hotels we’ve ever stayed at. It was quiet, beautiful and simply amazing. Not only is it located right on the beach (we actually stayed in a beachfront bungalow with private access to the beach- I would definitely recommend it!) but it employs the kindest staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, and they really make you feel like you can relax. I would like to point our two of the staff specifically. First, Ek, one of the newer managers. We were blown away by his professionalism and ability to make us feel cared for. An example of how above and beyond he goes for his guests is when he helped us wrap our new tattoos when we wanted to go snorkeling. He literally went to the kitchen to bring us Saran Wrap to personally wrap us up. He also had gluten free noodles brought to the island for me so that I could have pasta. The other person I’d like to highlight is the head chef. You can really tell he cares about the food he cooks and puts ample thought into each dish. Once he found out that I was gluten-free, he prepared a special gluten free pasta for me. He always came to introduce himself to the tables of guests eating to ensure that they were happy with their meals. Overall, this resort is incredible and the beach is breathtaking. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else on the island!

Dear Khun Casey, What a thrilling review, and it is lovely to see that the attentiveness and authenticity of our hard-working Zeavolians have conquered your hearts. Khun Ek just started working with us, but he is already a full member of ours and is doing a fantastic job. Chef Satya is on his more than deserved vacation and hopefully doing nothing right now. We truly hope that your Zeavola experience won't be once in a lifetime, and we cannot wait to welcome you back to enjoy our style of barefoot luxury once more. Sincerely, Lion and the Zeavola Family
