Had the most incredible experience at Ban's. Can't recommend it enough. We were a group of 4 and we did our PADI open water. The rooms were probably the nicest rooms that we stayed in whilst travelling. We paid 9,000 baht and this included our 4 nights accom. Jan Siegfried was our diving instructor - ASK FOR HIM. He was...

On a whim my two friends and I booked the Open Water Diving course while we were lounging around in Samui. They were native German speakers who could speak English quite well so having them take the English course. There was nothing to fear for them because it turned out that Jens, Nook, and Stefan all could speak german if...

Myself and a friend stayed in a fan room as the price was so cheap. 300 baht each for the night. When we arrived to the room the first thing that hit us was the smell of some dead animal. I can only guess it died tying to escape this god awful room. The smell could have also easily been...

We came to dive and booked an AIC room that wasn't that good. We asked to upgrade the room and it wasn't a problem, we got nice treatment. The supreme room is wonderful! Big, clean and very fancy. The resort has a nice restaurant and a very professional dive center. Cool place!

I totally panicked the first 3 minutes in the ocean, but thankfully I had a great diving coach Abby and she helped me to overcome my fear. She first listened to me carefully, acknowledged my fear (like a shrink!) and she assured me that a lot of people felt this way the first time (that calmed me down 80% already)....

I did the open water dive here after signing up at their desk in Ko pha ngan. I could tell this company was more heavily a business compared with the other smaller diving companies on Ko Tao, but I still decided to go with them. I was not disappointed. The resort is huge and has everything you could ask for....

Our stay at Ban's was really nice. First of all, Koh Tao is a great place. It's the perfect place for someone looking for relaxation, partying, or both. Two of the people in our group dove through Ban's and had a great time. The resort is right on the beach and it's close to the main part of the island....

Mixed feelings about our stay here. Other than most of the visitors we didn't do a diving course here so will judge it on the overall vibe, Room and food/service We had a room up the hill. Comfy bed, big room, nice big shower and lots of storage space Staff at the hotel is ok, bit lazy though. We saw...

We stayed in Ban's in April while my boyfriend did his Advanced OW - we were in a private double fan room with shared bathroom. The room was totally fine - clean & had a TV with movie channels which was a bonus! It is a little stuffy with the fan but completely bearable. The shared bathroom was like a...
