Zeavola was a great stay. Really nice staff to deal with and the resort has a very eco friendly feel. We stayed in a garden room away from the beach, which I would recommend because the long tail boats at the beach can be noisy, plus it's only a minute walk from the beach to a garden room anyway. If you stay be sure to take a short walk to the west side of the island to catch the sunsets.
We stayed 5 days in this hillside resort during the first week of April. Villa 2307 was on the third row up from the beach, 2 minute walk or 30 second tuk tuk. The place was unlike a Thai hotel or resort which you may have stayed elsewhere. Long-tail boat access only, very private resort although 10 mins to the ferry terminal and nearby village. View is amazing! Beaches are pristine! If its rest and relaxation...this is the place. Checkin and checkout was smooth and flawless. Top 3 best holidays I ever had... Mauritius and Dominican Republic in that group.
Hotel staff at reception could improve. They seem unhappy with processing so many tourists.
After a 2 hour treck on a hot day by ferry, the hotel is supposed to pick you up at the pier on a long boat to take you to the hotel. They showed up with a poor worker who didn't come with a boat and had to walk all through town in over 100 degree weather and through a beach with our luggage because they said the tide was too low to get the long boat out although all other resorts had their's waiting there.
Otherwise the room we booked on the ocean was beautiful and air conditioning worked well.
Warning ! - This hotel is not for the faint at heart cause there are many stairs and hills to get to your room but once you've arrived, the view is beautiful,
Maid was excellent and always gave us what we wanted greeting us with amazing designs on our beds with towels and flowers. Tip them and you'll get the same.
We moved after 5 days to a hotel next door for the natural settings we loved at the Viking Natural Resort but enjoyed our stay at the Bay View as well and would recommend.
