An idyllic sanctuary surrounded by nature’s bounty and the romance of a bygone era – the epitome of barefoot luxury

The Logistics

  • 32 villas
  • Tropical gardens on the tranquil shores of Laem Tong Beach on Koh Phi Phi, Thailand
  • Romantic and relaxing village offering large outdoors areas in tropical gardens full of exotic birds

The Experience

Your holiday filled with a carefree sense of utter relaxation begins the moment you set your bare feet on the fine white sand beaches and meandering paths of the Zeavola Resort. This tropical oasis with villas set in charming village huts amidst lush greenery is not just a sanctuary for the many animals that call it home, but also a sanctuary for your soul as you become part of the sustainable lifestyle upheld by the Zeavola. You can sense the resort’s great respect for the environment and the local community through its many sustainability efforts. Some guests even join in the weekly sessions where the hotel staff cook and bring lunches to the sea gypsy children, offering a rare glimpse into this nomad community. Whether you are in the huts right on the beach or in the luxury pool villa suites high amongst the treetops, there is just such a sense of peace and tranquillity to be surrounded by nature.
You can explore further with island boat trips and private beach picnics in your own long tail boats or dive with the passionate guides from the on-site PADI Five Star-accredited dive centre to spot leopard sharks and sunken caves at the Phi Phi National Marine Park. After a day of exploring, relax those muscles at the Zeavola Spa where the signature treatment Phi Phi Lomi, a combination of Polynesian Lomi Lomi and Thai Massage, is a must. Or chill out on the beach on huge comfy beanbags with the signature Tomyum-tini cocktail in hand. Dining at the Zeavola is such a treat that you never feel the need to leave the resort, from creative breakfast presentations to alfresco BBQ dinner that resembles a fish market with seafood galore. If ever you had a choice for an island to be casted away on, the Zeavola Resort on Koh Phi Phi with its balanced offer of rustic charm and modern amenities will be the ultimate destination.

Top Secret

Alongside the tropical gardens paths you will notice signs with names written on them. Zeavola resort has hosted over 65 weddings and their passion for sustainability even extends to these weddings where each couple gets to plant a love tree, a coconut palm with a signage of the couple’s names, signifying the nurturing growth of their relationship and giving back to nature.

Highlights

  • Romantic candle-light dinner on the beach
  • Snorkling excursions to witness the beauty of local marine park’s beaches, lagoons and uninhabited islands
  • Being able to abandon your shoes, flip-flops or sandals and go barefoot for the duration of the stay

The Story

When the General Manager Florian Hallermann took over the Zeavola Resort over 7 years ago, he set about championing the sustainability ethos to life on this secluded part of Koh Phi Phi island not really by choice. When you take the tour around the resort and understand the many resource and infrastructure challenges that he faces, you will be amazed at just how much that he and his team of 150 staff do everyday in the background to ensure the seamless operations of this barefoot luxury eco-resort. Sustainability efforts ensure that the guests’ comforts do not come at the cost of the biodiversity of this island.
