To be the best diving resort on an island is pretty cool. But to be the best diving resort on an island that certifies more scuba divers than any other place in the world is just plain awesome. Ban's has been recognized by PADI as the leading dive center IN THE WORLD, and for good reason. Ban's certifies on average dozens (and sometimes even hundreds) of divers per day. Whether you are brand spankin' new to the world of diving, or are looking to earn your open water or even dive master certification, there's definitely no better place than Ban's. And with dive masters who speak more languages than I can count, Ban's is a truly international affair. Even if you aren't interested in diving, Ban's is also one of the best places to party and relax on the island. Complete with a brand new recreational pool with a beautiful view of the surrounding jungle, and the Fishbowl Bar, Ban's has it all. As far as accommodations, Ban's offers a free no nonsense room (fan only) with all diving certifications, but if you're looking for a more luxurious stay, they offer a variety of fancier rooms, including the Deluxe Garden Front Rooms (where I stayed), which are perfect for spending a few days in luxury when in paradise.

If you want a great experience diving in Koh Tao, don't go to Ban's. Will they go to all the same sites as other dive companies? Yes. But they are a true 'factory' school, just churning out newly certified divers. Go elsewhere if you want personal attention for your dive coursework.

We took a villa for 9 nights as we were on our honeymoon. Cost was very reasonable.
Diving and dive instruction with Ban's was AA++! Took 3 diving courses.
Accom was very comfortable & clean. Staff were friendly and efficient.

On m'a donné une chambre malpropre sans eau chaude, puis quand j'ai demandé à changer la réception était fermée! Le lendemain on m'a transféré en dortoire. Pas d'ambiance, les gens étaient désagréables et les douches ne fonctionnaient pas très bien.
