Surviving the Ferry from Phi Phi to Krabi

A travel blog entry by kevinmoss

This is a top pick!

Reluctantly we started packing our bags after breakfast. The hotel has arranged for the longboat to take us to the pier around Noon which will give us a good amount of time to look around the little town, have lunch, and make sure we get on the ferry to Krabi in time. Unfortunately, we didn't take advantage of the good prices for laundry here on …

Maya Bay, Shark Hunting & Monkey Beach

A travel blog entry by kevinmoss

This is a top pick!

So why did we come to Ko Phi Phi? One reason. Ko Phi Phi Le was used as the setting of the 2000 Leonardo Dicaprio movie called The Beach. In the movie the beach was just stunning and it looked like paradise. Everyone was interested to know where it was or even if it really existed. Needless to say, the worldwide success of the movie made Ko Phi Phi …

Mosquito & Bamboo Islands

A travel blog entry by kevinmoss

This is a top pick!

We woke up this morning with the sound of rain on the thatch roof. We quickly got dressed (breakfast ends at 10:30 and it was already almost 10) and scurried on over to take some breakfast. The resort provided umbrellas and they sure have come in handy. We had breakfast and then went back to the room to get ready for our first day of diving.

Barefoot Paradise

A travel blog entry by kevinmoss

This is a top pick!

I finished working at roughly 3AM and we had to be up at 6AM to pack and meet our driver who was going to take us to the pier to board the ferry to Ko Phi Phi. I had to take in the view from our balcony one more time and I must say I'm reluctant to leave. It’s just so beautiful. I showered and packed up my bags and then went next door to the …

Day 63 - 68: Koh Phi Phi Don, Thailand

A travel blog entry by bmcswag

... dive was alright (didn't see any leopard sharks) but in between dives I could just lay on the top deck and tan. I was also trying to hold down any attempts of being sick from being so hungover. I had gone to bed around 3 and woke up around 6AM! I also happened to throw up a little bit in my regulator underwater as I felt I had to to feel better. - when I got back from diving around 2 I fully expected it to just be Mel and I again as Jamie was supposed to be taking the ferry. ...

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.
