Reviewed 17 August 2014

I stayed here with my husband and 17 year old daughter in August 2014.
It's a true paradise spot stay. From the minute you get off the speed boat, when you are welcomed with cold damp cloths to cool you down, you are looked after. The accommodation is quirky but very comfortable. And fits well into its surroundings. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The location is good for visiting the other parts of the island by long tailed boat.

Would defiantly go back.

During my stay at Koh Phi Phi I made 8 beautiful dives with Zeavola. I contacted them before I went to Thailand and I received a very good and complete answer on all my questions. Everything was organised very well. Because of the low season 7 of the 8 dives were private and all on another dive site around Koh Phi Phi. My non-diving girlfriend could enjoy snorkling during the dives and between the dives (2 on 1 day) we could enjoy a very nice lunch on a small (abandoned) beach. The rental equipment was of good quality (Scubapro) and condition. The dives sites were all beautiful, with a lot of different kinds of fish and corals, turtle, seahorse, stingray, Nemo, it was all there. So diving at Koh Phi Phi is defenitly worth it (even in low season)! All personal is very friendly, patiently and willing to help you wherever they can, a special thanks goes out to Jenny.

Dear Robert,
Thank you very much for your positive description of your dive experiences. Being in one of the nicest Marine National Parks the diving on Phi Phi island is truly memorable. My Zeavola Dive team would like to extend our 5 star service philosophy into the dive experience. Like this the team will prepare all the equipment and the dive boat prior to the guests arrival. Like this our Zeavola Guests can just hop on the boat and enjoy their dives, their lunch and the excellent local knowledge of our team.
Robert we would be very happy to welcome you back for more diving. Stay healthy and successful in the second half of 2014. The Zeavola Family is wishing you the very best.
Florian

After visiting bangkok and the North of Thailand during eight days we planned a visit to Phi Phi Islands, and booked in Zeavola. The resort is on the North side of the Koh Phi Phi Don island, with white sand and emerald waters.
The staff was incredible friendly, both Abdala and Florian and the rest of them. Stayed on a garden villa made of tropical wood, very spacious and very elegantely done up, with all the stuff of a luxury hotel room but in the middle of paradaise. For me, the best experience was taking an outdoor shower in the middle of a storm.
The cooking superb, with european an thai dishes properly cooked and on time, served front to the beach.
We enjoyed the stay in the villa as much as we enjoyed Koh Phi; all in all, highly recommended.

Dear Jesus,
Thank you very much for your very positive comments and description of the resort. Both Abdalla and me would like to ensure that all our guests are enjoying their holiday with us. It is really our staff team which we call the Zeavola Family, which makes the guest experience so positive, we only help and build close relationships to our guests.

Thank you for your great comments about the food. We have shared this with our Exec. Chef as well as the team. They are delighted that we have been able to cook up a storm for you.

Have a good second half of 2014, stay healthy and successful, we are all looking forward to welcome you back to the island one day.

I absolutely fell in love with this resort! Genuinely everything I had ever dreamt of! The hotel is situated on a private white sand/blue sea beach and the villas are amongst gorgeous green trees and plants. Each villa is decorated beautifully and it was like nothing I had ever experienced before. The villas are like little tree houses and it's such a different place to stay, I loved every minute. The beach is very relaxing - they have huge comfortable pillows for you to lounge on whilst sipping on their gorgeous fruity cocktails and watching boats sail by. The food was the best I'd had in the whole of Thailand - definitely try the lamb massaman curry! The service is incredible - the staff are all really friendly and helpful especially the ones working on the reception desk. We only stayed here for two nights (I wish it could've been longer) and we didn't actually leave the resort once because we loved it so much. Such a quaint and tranquil retreat and I'd definitely go back again and again. My only criticism is that our bathroom had a nasty sewage-like smell. This did not disrupt the holiday at all as we didn't spend much time in there, but for the price we paid, we expected perfection so this was slightly disappointing. Other than that, the resort is just what dreams are made of and I cannot praise it enough. Thank you for a lovely and peaceful break.

Dear Alix M,
Wow what a grand review. Thank you very much, we truly appreciate your good comments.
I have discussed with my housekeeping and engineering team to get to your villa and stop this bad smell you have written about. Obviously this is not how we would like to present our bath room.

Otherwise it seems that you enjoyed our beach which we try to keep as clean as possible. Also our Bean bags were to your liking. These big pillows make our beach very comfortable and chilled. We received many good comments about them.

Thank you very much for your kind comments about our team. Everyone of my staff members tries to make our guests happy and relaxed. We are glad that was also your impression.

We wish you an excellent end of Summer. Stay healthy and successful and contemplate when you can visit us again. We look very much forward to welcome you back to the Zeavola.

Anchored just off the zeavola resort and went ashore for dinner. Was greeted by the charming resort manager Florian and treated to a magnificent meal. The staff are attentive and courteous, obviously happy and contributed to a great meal experience. Recommend a visit.

Our family of 5 (three children aged 7-11) have just spent two action packed days at the Zeavola resort on Kho Phi Phi. From the moment we boarded the twin hull speedboat from Phuket we knew we were in safe hands - a stable and fast crossing in choppy seas meant we arrived Exhilarated to a personal welcome from Florian the manager at their private beach and were shown to our Eco-cabins each with indoor and outdoor living areas and outdoor showers, discretely screened for privacy.

The hotel is barefoot with traditional buckets and ladles for washing your feet before entering the rooms.

We had planned to spend a day snorkelling knowing that out of season windows in the weather would make it difficult - but Zeavola's knowledgeable dive team took charge and before long we were swimming with the cast of Finding Nemo on the Island's navigable East coast. It should be noted that August makes much of the West side of the Island difficult to reach - but we were delighted to find calm waters for the kids - something unavailable in Khao Lak or Phuket beaches that time of year.

Food was excellent and despite options along the beach we know we could not have eaten better than at the hotel - with great Thai dishes offered all day, and a tranquil star lit setting for dinner.

One last word for the wood decked Spa high in the hills to the back of the resort: Excellent.
Less expensive than some other resorts the treatments and setting were perfect.

Thanks Florian for an excellent stay - and Tam for looking after us on our day on the seas!

Room Tip: Best view of the sea from the lower cabins - greatest privacy higher up.

Dear Robshaw99,
Thank you very much for your long and very positive review. It makes us very happy that you and your family have enjoyed their stay. Kids with 5 and 7 need to run around free and discover the world, so we are happy that they had a good time to snorkel on our weather protected side.
Our beach is facing East, so its well protected in the low season, even my 4 year old daughter goes swimming there.

I have shared your comments with our Dive team and we are happy that you and your family had such memorable impressions about the snorkeling.

My Executive Chef is delighted to hear that you all enjoyed his food and is sharing this also with his team.

Our spa is a quiet place and we dont make too much noise about it, but the therapists are excellent and enjoy relaxing everybody to the most. Thank you for your positive comment on them.

Dear Rob, to you and your Family all the very best. Stay healthy and Successful and come again sometimes when the boys are bigger. Then we show them how to dive.
Florian and the Zeavola Family.
