About Us

Buddha View Dive Resort is Thailand’s premier PADI 5 star Gold Palm IDC Resort and PADI Career Development Centre. With over 20 years of experience in the diving industry, Buddha View provides world-class PADI diving courses, regular and special diving trips and accommodation to suit all budgets.

We offer the whole range of PADI scuba diving courses, from half day Discover Scuba Diving and the 3 to 4 day PADI Open Water Diver certification, through to professional level Divemaster and Instructor training. Buddha View’s on-site diving pool and air-conditioned classroms help make your diving courses as easy and relaxing as possible.

The diving centre is located on the stunning bay of Chalok Baan Kao, situated in the southern part of Koh Tao, which is an island in the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Tao has become one of the most well-known and most visited diving destinations among divers and non-divers because of its warm weather, crystal clear tropical water and large diversity of underwater sea life waiting for student and certified divers to discover. More than 20 diving sites are located along the coastline of Koh Tao. Most are accessible, by boat, in less than 30 minutes. Diving spots, such as Chumphon Pinnacle and South West Pinnacle, are full of diverse sea life, such as Baracudas, Batfish, Groupers and Moray Eels. Whale sharks and turtles are also occassionally spotted around Koh Tao.
