“Great time here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

What a great place! Good location, nice pool, clean rooms, and a reasonable price! We booked ahead online and ended up paying a little more than their advertised price of 900 bht. However, we would still recommend this place!

We stayed in Asia Divers for only one night because we chose to move closer to the beach and it was a bit overpriced from what they offered. We stayed in the fan room, and it was very basic! There ia a nice swimming pool but most of the time it is full of divers training.
I would recommend this place if your do a diving course with them, otherwise If you just want a place to stay I reckon there are a couple of hotels at the same range of price.

Please make sure you enjoy the sunset at the beach, it is absolutely amazing!!!

The Asia resort is about 5-10 mins walk from the beach but is close enough to Sairee Town. It has a swimming pool and breakfast included which was pretty standard food. We stayed in the Comfort Fan Room. It was certainly not very comfortable! The fan spins around the room and is only positioned on the bed for a few seconds before moving on and so we found it very hot. The beds are not very comfortable at all (very hard) and the pillows are terrible. The shower wasnt hot but the toilet did flush. There was a TV but no fridge or safety desposit box. The rooms are clean. It was noisy at night with lots of banging of doors and people talking in the corridors.

The pool was nice but had limited seating around the edge and had loads of flies. It is open all day for guests but sections are often used by divers (to be expected really at a dive resort!).

Room Tip: Go for an Aircon room as it isnt much more and worth it!

The room and bathroom very very smelly room 63. We were moved to room 60 on day 2 after they couldn't fix our door lock. Only bathroom smelly in room 60. So kept door closed to continue. Included Breakfast basic, but ok. Rest of restaurant menu very good and affordable. Super noisy location! Can't stress this enough if you are light sleeper. Paid 1,300 baht per night. I think there might be better hotels for this price. The pool was refreshing, clean and very nice! Lots of other great food in area. 40 baht per kilo laundry right across lane. 10 min or less walk to beach.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms that face the street. 24 hour a day mtorcycle and truck traffic despite it looking l...

The hotel is nice and clean and well maintained. The staff are not rude, but are not overly friendly either - just average. Some of the rooms are alongside a main road and can be a bit noisy at night and in the early morning. The hotel advertises a pool which is true and it is a nice pool, but it's primary purpose is for training divers so if you are using the pool for swimming or just relaxing you need to share it with people in full dive gear working on their training. Overall would stay again, but might try something different next visit.

Wanting to dive on the day we checked in, we came the day before to find out what time check in was and were told 10am. So instead of getting a taxi to our dive company (who said they'd look after our luggage) we went to Asia Divers Resort first, only to be told by the exact same woman that check in was at 11. We told them it wasn't a problem, they just needed to get the info right so we could go diving but they were aggressive right off the bat and had no time for us. We had to leave our luggage in the foyer, to go to our dive course then come back halfway through and check in. That night our fan groaned and squeaked all night (roof mounted and stuck on oscillate - so either off or on). After no sleep we went to reception at 8am and asked them if we could either change rooms or get it oiled. They told us come back at 10, we did, they said 10:30, so we did. When we came back they told us we couldn't move and it couldn't be fixed because we put a lock on the door and now the handyman was busy. We asked them why they hadn't just told us to leave the room unlocked and they just kept reiterating that it was our fault so we could just deal with the creaky fan. They were on the back foot no matter how polite you were, they acted like they were sick of their jobs and tourists and were clearly saying nasty things about us in Thai to each other. At one point one of them told us "you can just check out" and stormed off. We ended up having to pack up all our luggage, lock it someone else's room and leave the door wide open so they could fix it! Great way to spend a day of our holiday!!!! We have been travelling Asia and India for 6 months so have seen a lot of things but this was just nasty and uncalled for. They honestly acted like people had nothing better to do with their time but hang out in their reception! We ended up moving to a cute wooden hut on the beach on our last night and slept amazingly. It cooled down at night, unlike the big concrete building at Asia Divers. The hut was half the price, so much more comfortable and cleaner than Asia Divers and was run by a lovely old Thai woman. Moral of the story, don’t stay at Asia Divers!

I returned to Asia Divers with my partner for about the 5th time. We booked from Bangkok and were picked up at the pier. We had a fan room this time as we were not doing a diving course so not able to avail of the cheaper ac rooms. The restaurant does a great spicy tuna salad! The bar is lively when the dive groups are around but quiet enough other times. A great pool area where divers learn first steps but big enough for everyone to use. The place has really matured with beautiful gardens. In all, a good place to go away from the madness of Soiree Beach. Not the last place on the road anymore but still fairly quiet. Best to come here if you want to do a dive course or if your in a group, great security so always feel your belongings are safe. I will return again but not unless I am doing a course.

Room Tip: The fan rooms are nicer but obviously without ac.
