I don't doubt that Zeavola is the nicest resort on the island. The resort had a lot of charm and made a great effort to cater to the luxury resort crowd. However, our villa had the bathroom separate from the bedroom and I didn't like having to do outside the AC room in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Also, there was a bad smell in the latrine area, whcihc then made me glad that it WAS separate. Still, not ideal. Even the bedroom area had a chemical/antiseptic smell which I did not enjoy. We also had the bad fortune to have bad weather while there, which of course was not anyone's fault. However, because of the weather, we could not take the 1 hour speedboat back to Phuket, but rather, had to take the 3 hour ferry boat in stormy conditions. That was NOT a fun boat trip at all.
Finally, mosquitos were a problem. The resort makes an effort to spray - but what can you do on a tropical island?
The spa was nice though.
