I thought I knew diving until I went diving with Sairee Cottage Diving. All the staff where professional and friendly. the equipment in very good condition and the resort that goes with it is amazing as well. I've sped more then two months with Sairee Cottage and if I didn't have to go I would have stayed.

I can't say enough how satisfied I was with the diving course my two children did at Sairee Cottage Diving over the Christmas holidays. Everything was perfect and I was very impressed by the quality of all of the instructors I saw teaching at the swimming pool every day. My children learned with Martin, who was excellent, extremely professional, and... More

My friend and I came to to Koh Tao and Sairee Cottage Diving intending on just doing the open water diving course and staying four nights. It was so incredible we ended up staying for 9 days. I ended up doing the advanced course and the enriched air course as well. If it were up to me I would have... More

Had a great time taking my Open Water course at Sairee cottage. Emma was an excellent diving instructer. The rest of the staff was awesome.

Went there in December 2016. My first touch pint were the nice Restaurant, with good kitchen and friendly staff. Later I decided to continue my Open Water certificate. I have to say, the Sairee Cottage Diving team is very professional and do a really great job! I felt very comfortable and save with Martin, my teacher.

I must commend the staff for their hard work over the busy holiday season. This shop really does it by the book, no corners are cut on dive briefings, safety reminders and cascading local knowledge. Like most places on Koh Tao however, you get what you pay for... Cheap diving means hauling, setting up, tearing down and washing your own... More

My brother and I went to Koh Tao end of november 2016 to do our PADI Advanced Open Water certification. We didn't have any accomodation or diving class pre-booked. We walked by Sairee Cottage Diving Centre and immediately saw how well organised and clean everything is. We did the Advanced course and stayed in one of their basic bungalows that... More

We had the most amazing experience diving for the first time and completing our PADI open water here. We couldn't have done it without our incredible instructors (Emma and Julian) and would encourage people to try and get on their courses! The standard of professionalism, instruction, encouragement and safety standards was superior. We have serious Sairee Cottage blues!!!! Couldn't recommend... More
