... low season".
The following day we head out early on a longtail boat across the choppy sea to Phi Phi Leh (we had to go back!). Phi Phi Leh is about one km off the main island Phi Phi Don. The island was made famous by the movie “The Beach” featuring Leo di Caprio and features a stunning internal bay carved out ...
... an incident involving a pool table and the potting of seven balls to none, but the less said about that, the better. Let's just say that my life now has more meaning. It is now incumbent on me to seven-ball my husband (not a euphemism) at least once, preferably twice, to prove a valid point: that I am the better pool player...naturally. More on my efforts throughout our trip no doubt. Next, a short but exciting trip to Singapore before heading down ...
... Really nice to really ctours, all the passerbys ahh-ing and oohhing. Super Cute! Couple of beers later and 9pm rolled round for bedtime, otherwise it would have been nice to keep going!
Me, being a little pessimistic about whether Thai Beaches were actually as good as the photos, I was in wonderland. They are seriously absolutely beautiful. White powdery sand and crystal blue waters with gorgeous karst peaks towering around. Wowee. We took an ...
Apologies for the blog not being written before you all went to bed last night, our first night in Phi Phi turned into a more alcohol filled night than we could have expected. Anyway...... Our morning began still on the mainland in Krabi where we were to get a boat over at 3p.m to Ko Phi Phi Don to spend the next 4 or 5 nights, we are not too sure yet how many nights we want here. We awoke at 11 and with our bags all packed and nothing left behind (this time - we ...

‘Could this place be better?’ I asked to myself. Nope, but someone I love could be there with me to make it even more perfect I guessed. For a second though, my heart hesitated about whom should be ...

We've always stayed at the large five-star resorts and this was our first small resort. We were so impressed. The resort had a representative pick us up from the Hilton Phuket Resort and take us to the ferry to Phi Phi. It was first class treatment throughout the entire transfer -- Zeavola rep at the pier made sure that all of our bags were marked and had them put on the ferry and escorted us to good seats that he had saved for us. The Zeavola longboat was waiting for us when the ferry arrived in Koh Phi Phi and took us to the shore where we were met by a lovely Zeavola host. We were offered icy cold towels and a cold beverage as we checked in. The host showed us to our villa (#38) and we were in love with it from the moment we took our shoes off at the front door.
Each villa is its own free-standing unit surrounded by the jungle to provide privacy. As you walk up the steps to your villa, you'll enter an outdoor living room that includes two chairs, a refrigerator, as well as the usual bar ware you'd expect. The villas are made of teak wood and there's a large water vessel (with flowers on floating on top) at the foot of the stairway to each villa where you can use the ladle to wash the sand from your bare feet to keep the floor free of sand. For additional privacy, a press of a button will lower bamboo screens. From the outdoor living room, you enter the air-conditioned bedroom through two double-glass doors. Two of the walls are all-glass and you have a slight glimpse of the pool which you can get to on your own private trail. All the lights and air conditioning is controlled by a control panel that sits next to the bed. There's a desk, a TV, and wonderful setee for relaxing and reading a book. The bathroom is accessed through a large sliding door. There is an indoor shower and an outdoor shower which turned out to be one of the things we liked best about the room. Showering outside in the jungle (with bamboo covers to provide privacy) was an amazing experience. The shampoo, conditioner, and bath gel smelled amazing. I still wish I would have asked for the brand before we left!
We were at first apprehensive about staying in the relative seclusion of the north side of the island since there would be fewer choices for restaurants. Interestingly, we never left the resort for food. The menu was extensive enough that I tried many different Thai dishes that were all just wonderful. At night, they put out lanterns on the teak beach chairs that are adorned with beach chairs. It's paradise to sit there and listen to the gentle surf while looking up at the starry sky.
We stayed for 3 nights and wished that we would have reserved for an entire week. The greatest part of the stay was getting to go everywhere barefooted. We didn't wear shoes our entire stay! It's the best hotel experience we've ever had. We will always remember Zeavola as our barefoot paradise.
