Accommodation for divers in Phi Phi
Phi Phi hotel recommendations for divers
Most accommodation on Phi Phi Islands is centred in the tiny area of Ton Sai Bay. Space is at a premium, so is fresh water. Bars keep going all night long, it’s a party area. Unless you are back packers you probably won’t want to stay longer than a couple of nights. It’s quite hard to recommend hotels in Ton Sai bay because the standard seems to change from season to season. It is absolutely necessary to book in advance. Arriving off the ferry without a room booked could see you sleeping in a shop doorway or on the beach. The Phi Phi Banyan Villa is a good 3 star resort. Another is the P.P. Casita hotel.
For a quieter Phi Phi holiday we recommend staying on a beach away from Ton Sai Bay. Laemthong beach is a nice beach with some good resorts and a few beach restaurants/bars. There is also a small dive shop and long tail boats can take you anywhere else you want to go. The Erawan Palms and the Phi Phi Natural resort are two 3 star resorts next to each other and under the same management.
