Overall quality of service and facilities was great, but the best part of the whole trip was our instructor Atip (nickname: Bi). From day one, he was very professional but also made the class really fun. He gave us tips about where to get food or things to do during our free time. His passion for diving is so contagious!

As I sit here at midnight on the toilet, I regret having eaten at Ban's for a late dinner. Seeing as mine and my girlfriend's meals at Ban's were the ONLY thing different during our entire day, I can only blame their food. It didn't taste too bad on the way down, but trust me it burns like hell coming...

Very good place to go for scuba diving. The courses are affordable and very nice. We were just 2 people and went on the one day course, for the price we weren't expecting to have a dedicated instructor just for the 2 of us. That was a very nice surprise. Also, the food in the restaurant is very tasty. We...

Ban's is absolute stunning on Tao. They are still expanding although there already the biggest and best. The room was new and nice equipped. Just the shower could be better cause it's locked at the wall and a bit loose. Staff is very friendly and the included breakfast (you can choose different sets and 2 restaurants in the morning) is...

My husband & I stayed in the pool villas at Ban's Diving Resort for our honeymoon. We are both PADI open water certified divers & wanted to get some diving into our holiday whilst also living in a bit of luxury. From the diving point of view, we enjoyed our experience - had a refresher with Yassim (hopefully spelling is...
