The Green Pearls Partner Resort Zeavola on Phi Phi Island celebrates its reopening on the 1st of December.

The new manager of the resort in Krabi, which has received numerous sustainability certifications and awards, is Lion Imhof. He will take over from long-time director and soul of the resort Florian Hallermann, who died in a tragic trekking accident a few weeks ago.

Imhof had held the position of Hotel Manager at Zeavola prior to the closure due to the pandemic and successfully managed the resort together with Hallermann.

The 35-year-old German is an experienced hotelier and has been working in Thailand for many years.

After completing his hotel management training, he gained his first experience in the luxury sector at the Grand Hotel Breidenbacher Hof in Düsseldorf.

This was followed by positions at the "China Club Berlin" at the Adlon in Berlin, the Layana Resort & Spa on Koh Lanta and the Dusit Thani Krabi, Thailand.

In 2016, he joined Zeavola as the EAM of Food and Beverage, which became both his family and his calling.

After the long break of 7 months, all staff members are now back at the resort. Everyone is looking forward to finally being part of the Zeavola family again and welcoming guests.

Lion Imhof explains: "As born hosts, we all want to share our passion and hospitality with everyone who enters Zeavola and carry on the vision as well as the philosophy of Florian Hallermann."

Zeavola's sustainable initiatives have radiated far beyond the borders of Koh Phi Phi since its inception 16 years ago.

The resort intends to maintain this focus in the future.

Lion Imhof is particularly pleased that celebrity chef Satya Beeknoo, an important component of Zeavola, could be won back for the relaunch.

Beeknoo, who also likes to take time to cook something individual for guests, has been responsible for the resort's kitchen since 2018.

The member of the "Disciples Escoffier International" association pursues a completely sustainable orientation.

Under his leadership, the kitchen team reduced its monthly consumption of cooking oil by more than half, strengthened its relationship with suppliers, farmers and fishermen by focusing on regional products, and came up with innovations such as the reusable transport boxes and a composting machine to reduce organic waste.

In July 2020, Chef Satya and two teammates from Zeavola Resort won the Iron Chef reality show competition.
