Once upon a time, Koh Phi Phi or Phi Phi Island was just a small, beautiful Thai island few people knew about. Then along came Leonardo DiCaprio and his movie “The Beach” and that all changed.
Filmed on Koh Phi Phi, “The Beach” showed just how beautiful the island really was. So much so, Phi Phi now has world-class hotels and resorts to suit anyone’s luxury tastes. With several top hotels to choose from, these three Koh Phi Phi hotels are some of the best.
Zeavola Resort – This luxury beachfront hotel is the only high-end resort on Koh Phi Phi. Built on 10 acres of land, Zeavola Resort is on the north end of the island, secluded and away from all the crowds.
Zeavola Resort accommodation features secluded teakwood villas, surrounded by lush vegetation, and with beach, pool or village views. The villas are self-contained, with ensuite baths, outdoor rain showers, seating areas, verandahs that open up into gardens or the beach, flat screen TVs, DVD and CD players, Wi-Fi internet, coffee and tea making facilities and in-room safe.
The resort has a swimming pool and sauna, a boutique shop, and a diving center, from where you can learn to dive out in Phi Phi’s pristine blue waters. The hotel also has two restaurants, where you can eat al fresco or order food to be delivered to your villa. Room service and food service is available 24 hours a day.
At Zeavola Resort, you’ll experience Thailand’s finest hospitality, it’s most beautiful weather and it’s most stunning island. Find out more about Zeavola Resort at their website (don’t miss all the pretty pictures).

Villa 360 – Villa 360 is a brand-new resort hotel on Koh Phi Phi that’s already making a name for itself.

The hotel’s villas have private balconies with spectacular views, LCD TVs with satellite, air conditioning, in-room Wi-Fi internet, a mini bar, coffee and tea makers, both a bathtub and shower, a hairdryer and bathrobe.
