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.

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

Outstanding ! A beautiful hotel on the beach and in the forest. Lovely friendly staff and really carefully considered with an environmental agenda, beautiful rooms surrounded by nature and a lovely pool. The beach is not private beach which makes it better, with very friendly Thai cafes a short walk away. The hotel restaurant is great with friendly staff and a chef who clearly cares about the food. Family of 4 loved it and hope to return. Thanks !

This resort is the perfect combination of a relaxed bare foot vacation and luxury five star experience. We were a family with three teenaged boys and had the most wonderful time at the resort. The rooms are nothing like we have ever experienced before and give you the experience of living in nature while enjoying perfect comfort. We stayed at two Garden Suites, one for us and one for the boys. The food is simply amazing. We’ve tried almost everything on the menu during our stay and both Thai and Western cuisine dishes are done at the same high and delicious level with attention to every detail. The staff is very professional and always willing to help and attend to every need and request. The hotel can also arrange for boat trips and other activities around the islands. We went to a couple of snorkelling excursions and would highly recommend them. This is not your typical resort. If you are looking for a high end relaxed vacation at a tropical sandy beach surrounded by nature, this is the place for you.

My wife and I and our two boys spent a week at the resort in early August 2022. If heaven on earth exists, it would be Zeavola. This place is simply stunning and all the people running the resort, from the Manager, his assistants, the chefs, the waiters, cleaning ladies, masseuses, hair and make-up artists, boutique lady, engineers etc. are the friendliest and most wonderful people we’ve met. My wife and I wanted to find the “perfect” spot to renew our vows and have the honeymoon we never had when we married a decade ago. We wanted comfort and authenticity in a beautiful setting and with Zeavola, we could not have picked a better place. Zeavola perfectly combines luxury with the relaxed, laid back atmosphere of a beach resort, all of it done tastefully with sustainability and respect for the environment in mind. If you are looking for a large resort full of concrete, a sanitized environment, rooms without character, and impersonal experience, then this place is not for you. But if you want to have an authentically unique experience of luxurious living in the jungle with personalized service, you won’t find a better place than Zeavola. We stayed in one of the pool villas in the back of the resort, up a hill. The rooms were beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Next to the master bedroom is the indoor/outdoor bathroom. There were two rain showers and two sinks, indoor and outdoor. We quickly discovered that showering, brushing your teeth, etc. outside surrounding by the jungle is so much more enjoyable. Our two boys loved their own bedroom separated from their parents, right beside the private pool. Their first activity after waking up was to go for a swim, same for their parents. The pool was actually perfectly clean, maintained and cleaned up every day, which was great given all the trees around. While it takes a bit of an effort to access the villas, the upside is not just the fantastic views of the ocean, it’s also the complete and absolute privacy, which gives you options on the amount of swimsuit you want to wear while using the pool… During our stay, we also took the opportunity to visit Tonsai Bay and go on a snorkelling trip arranged through the resort. Maya beach was temporarily closed, but there are other stunningly beautiful places that we got to discover. What will make us come back to Zeavola is not just the indescribable beauty of this place but the wonderful people that run the resort and the delicious food (and cocktails!) we indulged in every day. - Lion, Nampet, Wan and the rest of the Zeavola staff truly made our renewal of vows stress free and unforgettable. We are so grateful to have shared this special moment for us with all of them. - Chef Satya and his Thai cooks every day prepare the most delicious local and western food that we enjoyed eating while digging your feet in the soft sand by the beach. I can’t wait to try the recipes from Chef Satya’s book.

If you are looking for a great vacation on a quiet beach with turquoise water - Zeavola is the place for you. The food is delicious - thanks to the great chef that has a worldwide experience and the kitchen staff. The service is great - thanks to the devoted housekeeping team. The reception staff will do everything to assist and make sure you have a pleasant stay. The rooms are not fancy and not meant to be... but rather decorated and equipped exactly to suit a stay on an exotic island (needless to say the rooms are very comfortable, clean and provide privacy).

The island surprised us pleasantly. No cars, roads, everything by boat. The hotel is pleasant and cosy, all barefooted in the middle of nature. Staff is amazing, kind and helpful and food super all day long. So when you’re looking for a nice spot in nature where you can fully disconnect and enjoy good views, nice food and each other this is a good suggestion. We already miss it.
