Newly renovated in 2016, Sawasdee Fasai is an extremely modern and well furbished liveaboard with a spacious layout that creates a tranquil vibe on board, between action packed dives.
There’s a massive sundeck with plenty of mattes as well as partial shading and loungers towards the back. It’s the ultimate place to catch the view, especially as the sun melts beneath the horizon each evening.
Inside there is an air conditioned indoor saloon with a large plasma TV, movies, books and a refreshment bar.
The enormous dive deck on board ensures everyone has ample space for gear storage and kitting up, even when this liveaboard is at maximum guest capacity.
On the main deck are 2 master cabins and 5 deluxe cabins, each with ocean views and ensuite bathrooms.
Down on the lower deck are 4 standard cabins with en-suite bathrooms and 4 budget cabins with shared bathroom facilities.
Swasadee Fasai journeys to Thailand’s North Andaman Sea to explore the legendary Similan and Surin Islands.
Above water you’ll witness white beaches, tropical forests and mighty boulder formations. Below, you’ll discover the very best hard coral in the country among a myriad of colourful fish, crustaceans and mollusks.
Living here also are many turtles, black tip reef sharks and leopard sharks. Between January and April, lucky divers can even spot whale sharks and manta rays.
There’s an average of 4 dives a day, with 3 day dives and 1 night dive being the norm. Guests only require their open water certification and no extra logged dives. A free check out dive is available on board for divers who have not dived recently.
With such immaculate spaces and an excellent dive itinerary, we’re surprised but not annoyed to see that Sawasdee Fasai is only mid-priced compared to other Thai livebaords!
