There is a huge lounge with four large sofas, a TV set, music system and library. The lounge leads onto a pool deck through three different glass double doors. A guest toilet and basin adjoins the lounge. There are two options for dining; outdoors overlooking the beach, or indoors in the lounge.
Zi Villa is staffed by a manager and foreman, a housekeeper, a night watchman, and two resident chefs. The villa is rented on a full board basis and meals are prepared and served by the two resident chefs.
There is a mini-bus permanently available for hire at the Villa with a driver who knows the island so is able to take you north to the restaurants and beaches, south to the spice plantations and town for souvenir shopping and sightseeing or to the extreme south where one can swim with the dolphins. The manager can organize a boat anytime you need it and they will collect you from the beach directly in front of the house. There is a large selection of fins and masks in every size available at the house, which you are welcome to use for snorkelling from the boat or whenever you like. He can also organize scuba diving if you have any divers in the group. There are also canoes and paddle skis available for guests' use.
