Asia Divers Resort
Ranked #26 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Reviewed 7 July 2013

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.

Paid for a fan/ac room on Agoda and wasn't disappointed but wasn't particularly overwhelmed by the quality of what we got. The rooms are comfortable and tidy as is the resort, which is very much setup for divers, who can get a good deal on dive packages booked through the resort.

The staff are mostly Burmese and, perhaps understandably, quite ignorant of you if you greet them in Thai or ask for anything in Thai. That said, they seemed to warm a little when I figured this out and thanked one in Burmese.

We paid for breakfast with the room but the breakfast menu is restricted to 4 fairly uninteresting choices. Again, the quality of the food wasn't bad but portions were quite small (relative to what a street vendor would give you) and it was more expensive than the restaurants/vendors just a stone's throw away.

The location is good for accessing a large number of cafes/restaurants as well as the Sairee Beach nightlife and a large number of dive centres, including the on site one.

All in all, no real complaints but (as a guest rather than a diver) nothing to write home about.

Room Tip: The higher quality rooms did actually look pretty nice, maybe ask for one at reception?

We stayed here for 6 days in Koh Tao...originally we were only going to stay for 2 days, but fell in love with the location, staff, and amenities. The diving instructors were extremely helpful and made us feel so safe during our fun dive. It's the perfect place to stay to be right in the excitment of sairee beach.

The bed springs protude from the matress and the pillows will be better described as rocks with plastic wrapped around. Not a good combination. Bedbugs biting you and if you get up and go out the mosquitoes immediately attack you so it is a situation where you lose all the way. Forget about complaining, "we will look in to it" is the only response you get from staff. This was my worst experience ever in Thailand. Not happy at all. The breakfast is extremely poor, with the soup and rice as the worst. Believe me steer clear of this resort.

Room Tip: Steer clear of this resort, they are not cheap and the lodging is terrible

We stayed here while travelling through the islands. The hotel is in a good location away from night life but only a 5 min walk to beach or bars for evening drinks. The rooms are spacious and clean with a large double bed. Nice balcony over looking pool. Lots of places to eat locally too, food on site is ok but order was never what we asked for. If not diving on island prices are more expensive for what you get but overall good experience

We wish we stayed here longer!! The first person we met after checking in was Lou and what a great friendly person to meet!
We stayed for 3 nights. I did a try dive with Claude who makes you feel totally at ease, and my brother and sister in law are qualified and dived twice and both instructors that had were brilliant.
The accommodation was clean and tidy, but what made this place so fantastic was the people that worked there (especially Louise) and the friendly atmosphere. I want to go back as soon as I can!!!

Asia resort is an all right place to stay if you wish to stay on sairee beach. The rooms were good and seemed very clean. But they felt very hot, as the fans they provided weren't particularly efficient. The pillows were made of what seemed to be a pink fake leather fabric and were extremely uncomfortable. The price was ok, but I think you can find a better value place in the low season if you look around on sairee beach. The service on the resort was OK, but the staff weren't particularly helpful or friendly, they just answered your questions like they didn't really care.
