This was our 2nd trip to Zeavola as our experience last year in Feb 2009 was so wonderful for 5 nights, we decided to go back this year in Feb 2010 for NINE nights.
We've just arrived home yesterday, and really miss Zeavola, the amazing staff, that went out of their way to welcome us back, their friendly, beautiful nature towards us, and making our stay PERFECT and the romantic, elegant, and beautiful tropical hotel experience!
Zeavola is the experience every couple should have at least once together - an extremely romantic, elegant hotel set amongst a beautiful white sandy beach and tropical gardens, clear starry nights, balmy evenings, delicious food, friendly staff that respect your privacy but who also bend over backwards to make your stay perfect, palm trees, aqua clear water and beanbag lounges to lay on the beach and laze the days away..... what with a a gypsy village down the beach to go to for a change, plus Zeavola's excellent restaurants right under your nose, it's all just a perfect setting. Not forgetting staying at the hotel's open rural Thai villas, ( each with an open-air room, but with well air-conditioned bedrooms that are private, comfortable, relaxing with every detail thought of.
We loved Zeavola and are already planning our third trip back in Feb 2011.
We've stayed at many 4* and 5* hotels in Asia, the US, Europe, and Australia and by far, Zeavola has a point of difference.
It's amazing because it's part of the natural surrounds, but in a way that is comfortable and beautiful and luxurious and very, very different. And it's extremely romantic.
Yes you're barefoot most of the week, and there is a relaxed atmosphere, but you're dining under the stars on balmy nights, eating 4.5* food and sipping cocktails in the sand with the waves gently lapping up right next to you, candlight and lanterns surround you, and it's just a short stroll back to your villa through sandy paths amidst manicured, natural gardens with hermit crabs passing you and birds chirping.
Yes, there's mosquitoes, but they're everywhere in Thailand!
Yes, there's boats passing by on the beach all day, but they're mostly from the hotel next door, and not to Zeavola's detriment, and they do take guests to other islands and day tours, so the longboats and speedboats are essential.
We've read the other reviews on Zeavola, and we just wanted to say that we can't recommend enough that any couple (whether on honeymoon or on holidays or just wanting to get away), should DEFINITELY stay at Zeavola.
It just has an essence of relaxation, tranquility, beauty and privacy that we love, and therefore definitely recommend everyone to have the Zeavola experience.
The staff, (who some have become our friends), have bent over backwards to make our second stay at Zeavola so special, extraordinary infact, and we can't WAIT to go back!
Thankyou for a fantastic holiday Zeavola Family!
