Just returned from a wonderful stay on Koh Tao as a chaperone for a high school spring break trip. Our room seemed like a good value with a great view. Everyone here was really friendly... good yoga instructors too! The reason I feel everyone should patronize this place is they have been leaders in helping to restore coral reefs. The... More

The instructors and staff are all super helpful to the new divers. The dive school is especially focused on Marine Conservation which is great! The ambience is amazing and makes the dive experience all the more fun and memorable. When I was traveling, it happened to be Songkran (Thai New year). The dive school has a barbeque pool party with... More

I started my open water course with NH in June 2016. I didn't know of this school before, neither did I know anything about diving. I’ve never done a single dive in my life before when starting the three days Open Water course. It took me a few dives to get used to being in this new element but all... More

We dived with New Heaven for 2 days 4 dives in total. My wife wanted to try a discover dive 7 years after her first experience which was less than great. The dive master (Chloe) that did her DSD was fantastic--chill, patient, and generally everything you need to ensure a good experience for a potentially anxious diver. I was thrilled... More

My daughter made her OW in New Heaven. Despite havy rains and difficult weather conditions, the course was very relaxed and well organised. She liked it very much.

Recently completed my SSI open water diver certification with New Heaven. Every member of staff we met was friendly, helpful and clearly dedicated to marine conservation on the island. The course was extended to 4 days due to the poor weather conditions during our stay. The course was taught face to face by our instructor Leon and DMT Jen- both... More
