Zeavola destination wedding World Bride Magazine

Nestled in the heart of the lush jungles of Koh Phi Phi Don (Koh means island, and Don is a small hill or mound), Zeavola offers an enchanting blend of barefoot luxury and sustainability. This secluded sanctuary transports you to a bygone Thai village featuring rustic teakwood villas topped with traditional grass-thatched roofs. Here, authenticity meets eco-consciousness, providing a breathtaking escape for couples seeking a unique wedding experience.

Located on the serene northeast coast of Phi Phi Don, Zeavola Resort is a haven of tranquility accessible only by boat. This beautiful island has no vehicular traffic, making it a peaceful oasis where Tonsai, the primary village, can only be reached by a scenic boat ride from Zeavola.

Zeavola Resort sets an idyllic stage along the pristine white sandy beachfront for couples seeking the perfect wedding destination. Whether you prefer an intimate gathering or a grand celebration, Zeavola offers tailor-made packages for both Buddhist and Western-style weddings. Their dedicated team can assist with the legal process to obtain an official Thai Marriage Certificate, ensuring the authenticity of your union.

In this magical setting, surrounded by the deep blue sea, white sands, and the soothing sounds of nature, Zeavola Resort invites you to celebrate love and create unforgettable memories. Whether it’s a Thai or Western-style wedding, Zeavola ensures a unique and magical experience that reflects your love story, making your special day truly memorable.

Buddhist monks perform a traditional Thai wedding ceremony at Zeavola, a sacred and serene experience. It begins with chanting and blessings for the bride and groom. Alternatively, you can opt for a classical Western-style beach wedding conducted by a non-religious master of ceremonies.

A long drum parade takes the lead and brings the wedding couple to their “Love Tree,” a symbol of their growing love and commitment, which will be planted in the resort by the bride and groom as a lasting testament to their special day.

Zeavola Resort, situated within the Phi Phi National Marine Park, provides easy access to paradise coves and beaches, making it ideal for snorkeling, swimming, scuba diving, and exploring marine life. Whether you’re an experienced diver or want to soak up the sun, Zeavola offers the perfect day trip for you. You can explore the wonders of the Andaman Sea with Zann Zanook 5-star PADI Dive & Activity Center. Enjoy professionally guided diving experiences and island-hopping adventures, or engage in beach volleyball, frisbee, and kayaking with complimentary sports equipment.

Zeavola also offers a rejuvenating spa experience nestled within the island’s rainforest. With treetop views and a focus on authentic treatments, the spa blends Thai, Chinese, European, and Polynesian techniques to provide ultimate well-being. The use of high-quality aromatherapy oils, organic local fruits, plants, and herbs adds to the therapeutic journey. Guests can also unwind in the steam room, sauna, spa gym, and beauty salon, with the option to choose combined spa packages for a holistic body and mind rejuvenation.

Before your journey to Zeavola, ensure your flight schedule aligns with their boat transfers. For international travelers, consider adding an extra day on the mainland before and after your Zeavola experience to accommodate any travel adjustments. Don’t forget to pack essentials like sunblock and abundant positive energy.
