Had a great 4 weeks at Diamond. Has definitely been one of the highlights of my 5 months of travelling. Brilliant team they have there. The trainers are all good lads, very friendly and great at there job, and have a genuine interest in improving your technique. Training can be tough, but is good fun and caters for beginners to experienced fighters. There is a real family atmosphere in the camp, with most people chilling out and socialising with the trainers in the evenings. Highly recommend doing the train, accommodation and food package. Was a good price, with huts directly opposite the gym, and the food cooked by the wife of one of the trainers is excellent.
Really couldn't recommend this place enough, and hope I get the chance to go back.

This is my second time at diamond. There is always a great vibe around camp, with people chilling out between sessions, visiting the local pool and just enjoying koh phangan.
The trainers at diamond are excellent and work you hard, but it is well worth the effort. A great place to train, whether you are a beginner or a world champion (one former champ visited during my 5 weeks here).
I highly recommend coming, be it for a single session to experience authentic Muay Thai, or for 6 months if you're lucky!

Had a great 4 weeks training at Diamond. Instantly made to feel very welcome at the camp - all the trainers/staff are extremely friendly, great fun to be around and it very much has a family atmosphere about the place. Simon, Mon, Jesse and the rest of the team will all go out of their way to help you out with anything you need assistance with whilst staying in Thailand.

Training was very much based on the technical side of Muay Thai which was fantastic for myself as a beginner but having been travelling for 6 months before arriving I definitely left feeling a lot fitter also! You get a lot of one on one time with the trainers during the sessions which is great and somebody is always watching the group and if they see any problems with technique they will pull you aside and go through it with you which is also a massive help.

The facilities at the camp were spot on and the food prepared by the wife of one of the trainers was fantastic.

Had some brilliant nights out with all the team as well - notably Full Moon and going to support both students and trainers for their fights.

Highly recommend Diamond and I will definitely be back when next in Thailand.

Had a fantastic two weeks of training and stayed on site accommodation to and was really impressed with the high level coaching from the tutors and their attention to detail and I even managed to drop some weight. Everyone is really friendly and there is a real family atmosphere here. The accommodation was just what was needed and the staff were always on hand if I needed any assistance and always happy to help. I will definately come back here again soon to train and stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get fit, lose weight and learn thai boxing.

During my time at Diamond I got to see both side of Muay Thai, hard training and sabai, which is great. The trainers are awesome, put a lot of time on the students, and the atmosphere is great. It's a friendly and amazing gym that have to be visited while you're in Koh Phangan. I go back soon again, and that explains it all. Love the gym!
Don't forget to try live at the gym in the huts there, to get a bit more "thaistyle" experience.
