We stayed here for 3 nights. Had a standard room with twin beds + an extra mattress for a 3rd person. The room was just large enough for this, with extra bed linen supplied when just a sheet requested as too hot at night. Bathroom was clean with shampoo etc. and the provided umbrellas, beach bag etc aswell. Although 'hot'... More

As a very well travelled business professional, I made a brave decision earlier this year to take a month off work from my career and undertake my PADI Instructors Development Course (IDC) and exams - a dream and ambition. I know several dive professionals around the world, including some who actually live on Koh Tao and work for different dive... More

This place is fantastic, they didn't become so succesful by chance. They work very hard, it's great value and a great place. I did the rescue course here, they have a dedicated instructor who loves teaching the rescue course and it shows. Good rooms / diving / food and the best bar on the island. Thoroughly recommended (and I can... More

The hotel is located in the perfect location and heart of Ko Taos famous Sai Ree beach. We checked out a number of resorts along Sai Ree, this is definitely one of the best. They also have great diving packages and won a number of awards. Staff speaks good English and is very helpful if you need anything. Would definitely!... More

I have recently undertaken a side mount diving course with Bans. I dived only and did not use the accomodation. However I am very impressed with the overall professionalism shown to me by my instructor and all of the team at Bans. Initial communication with my instructor was fast and complete. On arrival he made me welcome and we got... More

The staff at the resort was extremely helpful. The place was beautifully landscaped and right near the beach. The room was clean and service was great. We also dived with them 4 times and left happy. Along with being right near the beach it was on a main strip with restaurants, a dry cleaners and shops.
