Ban’s Diving Resort first opened in 1993 and has grown to be one of the largest dive resorts on Koh Tao.

With more than 200 rooms, beautifully kept grounds, a total of five swimming pools, two on-site restaurants – like the highly rated Barracuda at Darawan, and the Fishbowl Beach Bar that provides a clear view of the sunset, Ban’s is a world in itself.
Centrally located on Sairee Beach, the resort is within walking distance of many other shops, restaurants, and bars along the beachfront. When it comes to rooms, Ban’s Diving Resort caters to all types of travelers. There are air-conditioned dorm rooms and fan rooms for the budget-conscious traveler. Both types of rooms have direct access to one of the swimming pools. There are also midrange air-conditioned rooms and luxury villas spread out around the grounds for travelers looking for higher-end accommodation.

Ban’s Diving Resort is also very active in promoting green tourism and eco-awareness. In the restaurants, plastic straws have been replaced by metal or bamboo ones. In the majority of the rooms, Ban’s supplies the guests with homemade natural soaps that they make at the Eco Center at the back of the resort. Ban’s also is actively involved in the community about environmental awareness.
