My wife and I stayed at Zeavola for two nights, and the resort lived up to all the hype and our expectations. We were looking for a luxurious, easy going and relaxing few days, and Zeavola defintely lived up to this. The entire process of check in, right from our transfer at Phuket airport, all the way up to the speedboat and then finally checking in on site was great. The hotel staff were friendly, and had everything ready for us when we showed up (about 5 pm local time). The property sits right on the beach, so you have easy access to the water, and the local longtails to get you anywhere you need to go on the Island.
Food for the most part was good. We ate breakfast at the hotel on both days which was better than average. Nothing special, but good quality stuff. WE also ate lunch one day while we were relaxing on the beach. The lunch was amazing! My wife had the Khao suey, and I had a tom yum soup which was absolutely fantastic. We also had the sticky rice and mango for dessert which was just as good. Drinks were also great at the restaurant.
My two complaints at the hotel were:
1. Theres no real happy hour, or welcome reception for guests. Usually, at resorts around the world, when you pay a premium price, the hotel tends to do some sort of drinks and snacks through the evening to allows guests to mingle with others at the hotel. Considering you pay a premium price for the hotel, I was expecting some tropical juices, or snacks.
2. My AC in the bedroom was awful. It would stop working after about 3 hours. This made sleeping at night quite uncomfortable. Considering how warm it was outside, sleeping in a puddle of your own sweat is no fun. I didnt complain about this to the hotel, because were were there for only two nights, and I was hoping that the problem would fix itself on night two, but it didnt.
Overall, Zeavola was beautiful, and I would definitely go back, and would recommend it to anyone making a trip to the island. Next, I will be sure to complain if the AC doesn't work :).
For dinner options, definitely try out Jasmin, a few steps down from the hotel on the beach. That place was amazing!
