I had the best experience ever when I signed up for my first ever diving class with Sairee. My instructor was Taz, who were so amazing, so helpful, respectful and patient. Even when I got water in my mask 18 meters underwater, and just couldn't get it out, and was about to freak out a bit - she calmed me... More

Checking in and out went smooth and our instructor was amazing. You get a high standard education with good material. The rooms were great (you have to hang the sign "clean"... More

After doing extensive research online, I picked Sairee Cottage to go diving on Koh Tao. And it turned out to be an excellent choice! Between all the big diving schools on the island, Sairee Cottage is a real pearl. Centrally located at Sairee beach and yet it feels so peaceful and calm over there. I signed up for the Advanced...

We just finished our open water cert at the Sairee cottages and couldn't have had a better experience (unless we would've seen a whale shark hah). In all honesty, this place has it all figured out. We walked up to the reception the day we got on the island and they were able to get us a class starting that... More
