MV Sawasdee Fasai is a large Similan liveaboard yacht that has just undergone a full refit to become possibly the best liveaboard boat in Thailand. Due to the success and popularity of Sawasdee Fasai's sister ship, MV Pawara, that is fully booked for most of its trips, we needed to find a suitable alternative. Sawasdee Fasai has the same quality of construction, luxurious cabins, professional team and unbeatable service.

comfort and luxury Sawasdee Fasai Thailand lievaboard At 37 metres in length and with a steel hull, MV Sawasdee Fasai is perfect for Similan Islands liveaboard diving. The boat’s specifications enable it to sail through any sea conditions while keeping everyone on board safe, comfortable and happy. The dive deck at the rear of the boat is very large & low, near the water’s surface. This enables divers to enter the sea easily and safely. At the end of each dive, if they can’t reach the dive deck’s buoy rope or ladder, there is a motorized dinghy to retrieve them.

Communal areas on MV Sawasdee Fasai are numerous, large and comfortable. There is an air-conditioned lounge saloon, complete with sofas, chairs and AV entertainment. Most meals are served at the rear of the main deck, which is covered and can be completely enclosed if the weather becomes less than perfect. Guests who want to sunbathe, stargaze, read or socialise outside, can always find somewhere to do so alone, in private pairs, or in groups. The large size of the boat offers both stability and plenty of space to move around and relax.

Up to 26 lucky guests can join each MV Sawasdee Fasai Similan liveaboard trip, sharing one of the 13 air-conditioned cabins on two decks. The upper deck of the boat is home to two master cabins (double beds) and five deluxe cabins (twin bunks). All of these have large windows, private bathrooms and plenty of storage space. On the lower deck are four standard (twin or double) cabins and three budget cabins (twin beds). All except the budget cabins have private bathrooms with hot & cold showers. The budget cabins share bathrooms which are not used by other guests or staff. Whichever cabin you choose, it is guaranteed that you will feel comfortable and that the boat and trip are excellent value. There are also plenty of other bathrooms on the boat's decks.

Sawasdee Fasai has free Nitrox for certified divers, and those who aren't can take the course on board. There's also free wi-fi when in range.

Sawasdee Fasai luxury Thailand lievaboard frontal viewHaving a large and luxurious Similan liveaboard boat is no good if the crew and staff don’t perform to expectations. However, on MV Sawasdee Fasai the team make the trips what they are. The local crew and mainly-western dive staff are carefully selected for their professionalism, service and friendliness. Everyone from the tank boys, housekeeping, & Divemasters to the captain and tour leader knows how to make sure that every guest gets exactly what he or she expects from a luxury Similan liveaboard cruise. The local and western food is simply delicious, and cooked & served throughout the day. Between meals there are always fruits and snacks available, because diving in Thailand makes everyone hungry.

Dived: 21 November 2017
Boat rating: 10/10
We received excellent pre service support from Jamie at Similan Divers. The dive boat was very comfortable and we loved the deluxe cabins with ensuite bathrooms. The crew and food were outstanding. The dive masters led by the formidable Kwan were fanastic too. We were so touched by the care she had to make sure everyone had an excellent trip and how hard they all worked. The free Nitrox, video and electronic log book with all the fish we encountered on each dive was a nice add on. We had some items of rental gear we requested and unfortunately not all made it from West Coast Divers to the dive boat. But they were able to cobble together what we needed. ...read more
