Happy Reviews

" All in one - Buddha View Dive Resort. So I wanted to dive in Koh Tao for a long time and wanted to pursue my next diving course which was Rescue Diver. One of my friends from the diving community suggested​ to go with Buddha View and I checked​ it online and made the booking as the resort provides everything that a diver can ask for.

The staff is great, right from the guy at the reception, the point of contact for all the bookings - James, the people at their Restaurant and bar, the instructors. Basically everyone is really very helpful and friendly. "
