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.

Leaving Patong Beach and heading to Koh Phi Phi

... s so hot in this island so after our walk all I wanted was a cold shower. We got showered, got changed and headed back out for tea. We went back to the cheap street, I had 6 chicken nuggets, a veg samosa and a spring roll for just over £1, Matty had a chicken burger, 6 chicken nuggets and 2 samosas. We were both still quite tired from the travelling etc so we headed back to the room for an intense evening of playing monopoly and eating jammy dogers! How old are we ...

... area there is so much more to see than the tourist trap of Ao Nang. There are some really scenic drives through tropical plantations surrounded by huge limestone karsts and the roads are mostly well maintained.

Our first stop on the bikes was the Tiger Cave Temple which is at the base of a massive limestone karst with another temple at the top. Naturally with the heat of the day fully upon us and limited water we decided to tackle the 1237 steps ...

A Miraculous recovery

Thankfully after my lost day due to a mysterious illness I miraculously recovered, and so did the quality of weather. Today we sailed on, and I've decided I could get quite used to this. As we sail we are free to lay in the beanbags in the sun and read whilst feasting on copious amounts of wonderful food and fruits and biscuits prepared for us. Then when we stop we can jump off the boat and snorkel or kayak in to nearby beaches to explore. It's a hard life indeed.
