We had a great time at ban's diving resort. Rich and Sandra were amazing dive instructors and for the price it's hard to be beat. Rooms were nice the restaurant was good. When signing up Hold out and get air conditioning included in dive packages for the rooms but other than that was fabulous.

Amazing Dive resort. The hotel staff were so lovely, really welcoming. We got upgraded to a air con room because a fan wasn't available and when we left they booked another cheaper place for us to stay saving is walking around with our backpacks. The diving instructors Becky, Santi and Michael were brilliant, everyone in our group loved them. They...

Best experience ever. Amazing resort. Really good diving deals and accommodation is incredible. Big rooms, air con, room cleaned every day. Three incredible swimming pools and right on the beach. Ant Griffiths taught me how to dive at open water and advanced and the courses were exceptional. Really energetic instructor. Very patient and reliable! Felt really comfortable in the water....

My girlfriend and I recently did our open water course at Ban's, and loved it so much we continued to do the advanced open water course. Our instructor, Sander, was a great teacher and made the whole process so enjoyable, it was also clear he had a passion for diving and the underwater world which really reflected on our experience!...

Girlfriend and I came to Ko Tao as it had great reviews as an island and as a place to do our open water and advanced dive courses. We were told by word of mouth that Bans Diving Resort was the place to go to and we were glad we came here. Staff are excellent, especially our instructor, Neil. He...

It was a family holiday mixed with diving. Accommodation at Ban's was chosen as we wanted to stay at Sairee beach, close to the action with a quality accommodation. The hotel and management was beautiful. Our original booking was close to the mountain side after the main road but seeing old aged and children in the group the management has...

After a lot of research to find the best dive school in Koh Tao I found bans... And it really didn't disappoint! I genuinely can't find a fault with there approach to teaching and enthusiasm for diving! As for group size we had 1 instructor per 2 people if that is a concern as it was for us and price...

Loved this place so much that I'm going back to complete the advanced once I'm finished with Vietnam. The instructors (Ryan and Kate) were fantastic and the diver master (Sofi) was so funny and helpful. We stayed in the newer part of the complex with an infinity pool right outside our balcony. It was very clean and the restaurant caters...

When on the way to Koh Tao from Koh Phang Nang you are bombarded by diver sales representatives. For me I was keen to find somewhere not so busy, quieter and cheap (within reason). When i saw the sales representative for ban's, he showed me a leaflet which to be honest looked really good. As per most things in Thailand...

“You get what you pay for; there are some very luxurious-looking rooms and others that are clearly older/less well-kept”

“Depending of your need (quiet or not), ask for a room close to the dive center (more noisy) or far from the dive center (more quiet)”

“Rooms near infinity pool are a good size, not great if you have mobility problems, as the walk up from the beach is steep.”
