Sawasdee Fasai is surely one of the best Similan liveaboard boats and is a certain favourite of ours. Our team and friends and family always choose Fasai first when we go diving at the Similans. The size and construction of the boat ensure safe, stable and comfortable cruises, and there's plenty of places to relax on board. Most of Sawasdee Fasai’s cabins have private en suite bathrooms, and all are air conditioned.

Since 2016 MV Sawasdee Fasai has been owned and run by the same team as MV Pawara. That means each trip is extremely well managed by professionals who know how to take the best care of guests of all ages & diving experience levels. Rental equipment is top quality but available at great rates, and the food is simply delicious. Sawasdee Fasai joined the fleet because Pawara had become so successful & popular that many trips were sold out a year in advance. Similan Islands diving guests normally want the best safety and comfort that their budgets allow, and Sawasdee Fasai meets the same high standards. Sawasdee Fasai has the perfect staff & crew to provide the best food, service, safety & professionalism for diving Similan Islands cruises.

Sawasdee Fasai luxury Thailand lievaboard aftThere are four types of cabins on Sawasdee Fasai. The main deck has two master cabins that have large sea-view windows, plus there are five twin-bunk deluxe cabins. These also have sea-view windows, and wide single bunk beds. On the lower deck there are four standard cabins that can be configured as twin beds or a large double. All Master, Deluxe, & Standard cabins on Sawasdee Fasai have a private en suite bathroom, a mini safe, and plenty of cupboards & shelves. Finally, the boat has twin-bed budget cabins that are perfect for divers who want the best value but still enjoy the best diving & the luxury of a larger Similan liveaboard boat. The budget cabins have air conditioning, security safes, and share two large bathrooms on the same deck, that are only used by guests in these cabins. Guests staying in lower deck budget cabins have a very short walk to two large bathrooms. And if you're in the upper deck budget cabins, you get a large seas-view window and it's a very short walk to the dining area and lounge saloon.

Sawasdee Fasai has lots of space for guests to socialise or relax. There’s a large sundeck on the roof, plus another at the front of the boat. Both of which have all-weather sofas. In addition, there's a huge air-conditioned lounge saloon and a dining area at the rear of the main deck. It’s very easy for guests to find somewhere to sit together or to find peace & privacy alone. Finally, the dive deck of Sawasdee Fasai is massive. This is perfect for storing everyone’s equipment and enabling guests to gear up and step into the crystal-clear seas around the best dive sites in Thailand. A large dive deck is vital to the overall enjoyment of guests on a Similan liveaboard cruise. The team of local crew are very service minded and a lot of fun. They help divers into and out of the water. Naturally, Sawasdee Fasai has motorised tender dinghies for beach visits and to retrieve divers who surface away from the main boat.

The trips depart in the evening and you start diving the following morning at an easy Similan Islands dive site. During the trip the boat moves north to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock. There are up to 14 dives including a night dive, and a beach visit. Some websites show the trips to be 5D/4N, but this is incorrect & misleading. With an evening departure and mid-afternoon return four days later, the trips are 4D/4N. Don't trust websites that try to mislead you to appear better value.

lounge area Sawasdee Fasai luxury Thailand lievaboardThe kitchen staff and crew, plus the international dive staff, are always on hand to offer help & service, and understand the needs of guests who are on a diving cruise in Thailand. The food is cooked fresh for every meal and served buffet style. It’s a mixture of local and western cuisine, always with a vegetarian option. Tea, proper coffee, drinking water, fruit and snacks are available throughout the day for free. And local beer, wine & soft drinks are available at extremely-reasonable rates. 

Dive groups are organised so that everyone dives with others of a similar level, experience, needs & air consumption. Of course, this is flexible if couples, friends or family want to stay together. The timing of divers entering the water is very well organised, to ensure that everyone gets their turn at going in first, and the surface or dive site isn't crowded unnecessarily.

With all these wonderful things, plus Early-Bird discounts for bookings made before the end of August, it's easy to see why so many Sawasdee Fasai trips are full a long time before departure.

This was my first liveaboard trip that my sister and I had planned. We had no idea what to expect and this experience exceeded expectations. First, Jamie from No Troubles, Just Bubbles made the entire process absolutely seamless from our initial inqu iry several months ago to the day we boarded the liveaboard. The boat itself was beautiful, plenty of space to spread out, enjoy the sunshine on the top deck or get a break from it on one of the lower decks. The entire boat crew was fantastic and pleasant. The food was perfect. The rooms allowed for enough space and the beds were comfortable. Air conditioning worked perfectly. The bathroom was an excellent size and the water was hot for a shower after a full day of diving. The dive masters were knowledgeable and made the dives an excellent experience. I would highly recommend the Sawasdee Fasai to anyone interested in diving the Similan Islands, especially if it is your very first liveaboard and you’re not sure what to expect. I would dive from this liveaboard again. Thank you to the team for making a memorable experience! more

Everything about this experience was memorable in the best way. The boat was spacious and clean with lots of common areas to lounge in when not in your cabin. The crew is incredibly friendly and on top of everything. All of the dives were special in their own way, with a good variety of areas. Booking with Jamie and No Troubles Just Bubbles ensured that everything ran smoothly and we truly had no worries. Would do it again! more
