Our first trip to Thailand was a mix of budget and luxury accommodation across the country. Certainly one of the finer destinations we stayed at has to be the Instagram perfect Zeavola Resort on Phi Phi Island.

Where do I even begin? From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were in nothing but paradise. We only spent a few nights here although I wish we had booked to spend our entire holiday here.
Zeavola resort is designed around the rural village life in Thailand complete with adorable teakwood suites. The lifestyle here reflects that of the ethos of Zeavola resort and is designed to be long term environmentally friendly and sustainable. In fact it recently won World’s Best Sustainable Boutique Hotel Award.

Zeavola Resort is situated on the northern tip of Phi Phi Don Island, in the Phi Phi Natural Marine Park. An outlying part of Krabi, the island is easily accessible from both Phuket and Krabi.
The resort is located on Laem Tong Beach, a short distance away from the main pier. It, therefore, requires a private boat transfer. Zeavola operates a daily speedboat transfer service from Phuket which takes approximately one hour. Although private speedboats are available.
Alternatively guests can join the pubic ferry services and transfer to a long-tail boat upon arrival.
Our one bedroom suite was set on the sea front and comprised of; a beautifully decorated double bed, an indoor and outdoor shower and a amazing balcony area with two kingsize seats.
The attention to detail at Zevola resort really makes the experience all the more special. With personally tailored requests, a turn down service, and daily replenishment of refreshments and in-room facilities.
The facilities here are endless. I mean, honestly? Where do I begin.
You’re room is never going to be more than a couple of metres from the crystal clear white sandy beaches. Where you’ll find sun loungers and beanbags to relax on. The whole island is so quiet it’s like having a private beach just to yourself.
The resort also plays host to a highly versatile restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Set on the beach front this is the perfect place to take in views of the sunset.
The facilities of Zeavola resort don’ end there. In fact, they are just getting started.
The resort plays host to an award winning spa. We’d never been to a spa before and wow! was it a great place to have our first.
There’s also an on-site PADI certified diving centre. Which meant only one thing… We we’re going snorkeling. This entire experience ended up being the very highlight not just of our time at Zeavola resort but our entire time in Thailand.
In conclusion, Zeavola resort is as picture perfect on Instagram as it is in real life. So, if you’re looking for a little bit of luxury in Asia, here’s where you’re going to find it.
In fact I’m 90% sure Helen is already planning our wedding at the resort – yes, they do weddings too!
