I have gone to Evolution every year for the past 3 years. The thresher sharks are great, but most important to me is quality instruction, professional dive staff (including boat crew) and comfortable environs. I have tried to dive at other resorts that claim to have tech diving experience, but usually it is just an instructor with some tech gear willing to guide dives. Evolution is fully devoted to tech diving and also makes sure its recreational dive instructors and guides adhere to the same safety and underwater bouyancy standards. The resort staff are friendly and accommodating, but make sure your requirements are clear and confirmed. The rooms are clean and good for a remote island with few services.

Room Tip: The best fan rooms are on the corners. If you go in Spring or Summer, I highly recommend aircon as i...

Did a dive trip with them, accommodations and diving were settled almost instantly. Staffs were very friendly and helpful towards providing top-notch service, and dive instructors there were knowledgable and always willing to provides inputs in topics and techniques regarding diving.

100% going back for more training and more fun!

I spent 5 days + 4 nights staying, diving, and eating at Evolution and it was all fantastic. I'll review the diving and restaurant in the appropriate sections, but as far as accommodation goes, Evolution was fantastic. Really clean, comfortable, spacious rooms on the beach. The location is perfect- accessible to Bounty Beach (it's at the end of the beach) but quiet. The reception staff are all super helpful and friendly, as are all the other staff. The rooms are well equipped with mini fridges, and TVs loaded with movies and shows- great for a quiet night in after a day of diving. There are also refillable water jugs which is wonderful and something every hotel should implement!
As far as improvements go, the only things I'd like would be a hot water kettle (I get up really early and like to make coffee, and also like to make instant oats at night), and electrical outlets that are more accessible (I found one hidden behind the bed). However these are just little nitpicky things - the hotel is truly awesome and I really recommend it!

Such an amazing resort, clean nice rooms, right on the beach so perfect for diving, helpful and friendly staff, wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! The staff make you feel very comfortable and at ease, dived with evolution as well and all the staff are so experienced and know what they are doing! They take the time to learn your name and they are so trustworthy
