Plunge, play and pamper

Phi Phi’s pioneering ‘barefoot’ luxury resort Zeavola has launched two new five-star diving experiences in one of Asia’s most stunning and pristine national marine parks.

A hidden gem exquisitely set within Phi Phi National Marine Park, the PADI Five Star member has opened the door to Thailand’s mesmerising and vibrant underwater worlds with dive packages that cater to both the ‘plunge and play’ lifestyle divers, who want some serious relaxation and pampering along with their underwater forays, and the serious divers who want to get straight down to business.

The ‘Plunge, Play & Pamper’ Diving and Lifestyle Package is for casual divers staying five nights. It combines time for diving (five dives), relaxation and exploration. The dives are conducted over two-and-a-half days while the other days are at the guests’ leisure.

They can enjoy snorkeling, swimming and kayaking or explore the national park via long tail boat. They also have enough time to enjoy the acclaimed Zeavola Spa, which uses a range of traditional, ethnic and imported products and principles.


The dives are conducted according to the experience of the guests and the weather conditions. In this package all meals are included. When not diving, lunch is served in the restaurant.

The Simply Diving Package range allows guests who have booked accommodation through other channels to pre-book their diving and receive discounted rate.

“We allow our guests to enjoy luxurious hassle-free diving without long pre- and post-diving travel periods,” Zeavola General Manager Florian Hallermann said. “Through the national marine park’s protected status, the underwater fauna and flora are some of the most diverse in the Andaman Sea, creating a haven for all levels of divers.”


“Koh Phi Phi sports more than 20 different dive sites in close proximity to Laem Tong and the main village Tongsai. The offshore location ensures the best water quality while the area’s far-flung islands have to be seen to be believed.”

Mr Hallermann said Zeavola recently secured PADI Five Star diving accreditation after ‘long and unstinting efforts’, bolstering the resort’s sterling reputation amongst high-end divers.

The national marine park’s life includes enormous Gorgonian sea fans, a kaleidoscope of colourful soft corals, Hawksbill Turtles, Black Tipped Reef Sharks and an array of stunning macro fauna.


Famed for its high sustainability standards, highly personalised service and pristine beachfront location, Zeavola has built a great discovery element into one of the dive packages. Divers and guests are provided with hampers so they can picnic on some of the world’s most beautiful deserted beaches and islands.
