We were spending 6 days (5 nights) at the Carabao Diving school in order to get our Open Water certification and we consider ourselves so very lucky to have ended up there. We had an absolutely amazing dive instructor, Dan. I'm pretty scared of depths and not a quick learner of new skills. Dan was super patient with me and helped me overcome my fear while making sure we learned everything you have to know for safe diving.That guy is so charismatic I probably would have followed him throgh hell if he had told me it was okay. The accomodation at Carabo was also very nice, clean, spacious rooms with a balcony (we could even see the ocean when looking out of the window). Cool hangout spot at the bar at night, good food at the restaurant (we especially love their breakfast). Staff in general is very helpful and friendly. Carabao definitely made our stay at Koh Tao!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- For over 30 years, Carabao dive resort has been welcoming guests to Koh Tao's quiet, southern bay of Chalok Baan Khao. We have remained at heart a family business but have grown to now include a highly rated Scuba diving school, Thai & international restaurant, cocktail bar, travel & tour agent, and a brand new swimming pool. We have a full range of private Air-conditioned rooms, fan rooms and dormitory, all with views of the beach and across the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Tao's pier town and main nightlife area are no more than 4km's away meaning you can enjoy their delights but also retreat into the chilled, friendly, nature of Chalok village and relaxed hospitality of Carabao. ... more less
