One of the best Similan liveaboard boats has just had a full refit and been given a new name. This 37m. steel-hull luxury dive boat is now under new management and her name is MV Sawasdee Fasai. This Similan Islands liveaboard was relaunched at Christmas 2016, and has already become as popular as its sister ship, MV Pawara. 11 of Sawasdee Fasai’s 13 cabins have private en suite bathrooms, and all air conditioned.

MV Sawasdee Fasai is now 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 the lowest rates, and the food is simply delicious. Sawasdee Fasai has joined the fleet because Pawara has simply become too successful and popular, and trips are sold out sometimes 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 that Pawara guests have been enjoying for several years. Completely refitting the decks to provided large & luxurious cabins and communal areas that give guests plenty of space to move around or relax in comfort. Sawasdee Fasai has the perfect staff and 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 upper deck has two master cabins that have double beds and 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 and shelves for storing each guest's personal bellongings and luggage. Finally, also on the lower deck are two 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 share two large bathrooms on the same deck, that are only used by guests in these cabins, and of course have hot & cold freshwater showers, western toilets and hand basins.

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 tasteful all-weather sofas. In addition, there's a large 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 simply huge. 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. While a large dive deck doesn’t look luxurious, it 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 a motorised tender dinghy for beach visits and to retrieve divers who surface far from the main boat.

lounge area Sawasdee Fasai luxury Thailand lievaboardThey kitchen and service 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, and local beer, wine, ice cream & soft drinks are available at extremely reasonable rates. 

Dive groups are organised so that everyone dives with others of a similar level, experience, needs and 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 winderful 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.

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 fan astic 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. more
