Mermaids Dive Intern Accommodation Pattaya, Thailand

Mermaids Dive Intern Accommodation Pattaya, Thailand

Mermaids Dive Hotel Pattaya Free Wi-Fi

FREE Wireless covering the bar area and all rooms

The scuba diving life interns accommodation is clean, self contained, convenient and comfortable. Scuba divers in the internship programs have never been so spoiled with a choice of Mermaids personal Hotel located just opposite the new Dive Center or a personal condo just along Jomtien Mermaids scuba diving hotel – 37 rooms for divers – first in Pattaya beach. The dive hotel (New end 2008) with quite spacious rooms and extremely convenient location for the dive center. The condos have great gardens and large swimming pools but are located a few minutes by taxi along Jomtien Beach front. The condos are located between two quite lively areas with shops and services to cover all bases. The area is a favorite get-away destination frequented by wealthier Thais that have a holiday home in the area.

The condo rooms have a fridge, double bed, Cable TV, air-conditioning, ample storage space and private bathroom with shower and toilet. Accommodations are close to the dive shop (Pattaya, Jomtien, Thailand) for convenience and there is a real sense of community there as the interns tend to train and work hard together and also socialize together. The condos are set in garden surroundings next to the beach with nice views also. The Jomtien condos are privately owned by holiday takers here in Jomtien. They loved the place so much that they purchased a 2nd home or holiday home in Pattaya. Maybe the owner comes for 1 month or 2 months in a year – we have the condo for the other 10 or 11 months for example. Due to the condos being owned by different individuals all of them are decorated slightly differently but all nice and comfortable. ADSL Wi-Fi is possible at the condos.

FREE Wireless internet for ALL Divers at both dive centers also:

The Mermaids Talay hotel Jomtien is located opposite the new dive center for interns convenience. Fall out of bed and you’ll literally be on the doorstep of the dive facility. Each room is private and equipped with Cable TV, Aircon, private bathroom / shower, ample storage, double bed, vanity/work desk and fridge. Rooms have access to FREE WiFi (wireless) Internet also. With the dive center and diver accommodation all in house it makes things very much simpler and easy for us to concentrate on the dive internship programs.

The scuba divers hotel has a great laundry service which is very inexpensive allowing you to have all of your clothes washed, ironed and returned to your room for maximum convenience. Within 100 meters of the dive center and hotel there are great inexpensive restaurants, a few bars and two convenience stores (7-11 store) with all the days needs covered. Essentially your dive center, accommodation and all requirements can be found all together.

The accommodation is included within all of the dive internship programs offered through Mermaids Dive. Owning the hotel allows for its’ operation to be exposed to students taking the dive resort business management training at Mermaids. It is invaluable experience to get to see the workings of both the entire dry and wet sides.

NOW Working at Mermaids!

When we decided to travel to Thailand to do an Internship, everyone said to us you must be crazy!!! Sure with an 8 month old baby, we almost thought the same thing. Choosing the right Dive School was crucial for us to make our new life work and after many ups and downs searching for the right place and at the point of almost giving up our dream we contacted PJ and within hours joined up with Mermaids. Wow, they helped us with everything including finding us a fabulous nanny and a great apartment (all this before we even arrived) We have been here 7 months and are working on our MSDT and IDC Staff.

During this time, we’ve had great advice and instruction on all of our courses and ...

Good Times Leading to a Great Career!

Hey everyone, I just want to thank you all for a great 8 months in Pattaya. When I saw the website offering a scuba diving internship in Thailand I was a bit skeptical, but I have to admit it was one of the smartest moves I have made up to this point in my life. When you consider that I had NEVER been diving before coming to Thailand, and now I am a PADI professional, it is unbelievable. The hands on training provided by mermaids staff is second to none. They went out of their way to take the time to make sure I mastered the skills necessary to become not just a competent diver, but to excel and that’s what made it so special. So thanks to all you instructors, Russell, Claus, Manx, Dave...

Repeat Offender!

This is the second time I have been to Mermaids first was to do the Divemaster course which was very good and now the second which I have just done was OWSI!! All courses a taught to a very hi in the sky standard, the Course Directors, well they are the best around that’s for sure so Hats off to you Russell and Desi!! It’s been a pleasure to be part of Mermaids and I am sure I will be back!!

Divemaster Internship

After much internet research we contacted Mermaids to inquire about a divemaster internship, we received prompt and informative replies to all our questions, we also stopped by the centre on a quick visit and after seeing the operation and diving with the mermaids staff we were sold! We came to Mermaids initially for 3 months (that was 6 months ago) and after completing our DM course, we decided to stay for open water instructor training. The training at mermaids really is fantastic and having now successfully completed our OWSI training we decided to stay just a little bit longer to become specialty instructors. Not bad considering we only ever intended to be DMs!

We’ll have to ...

OWSI/MSDT Training with Mermaids

It's been 2 years since I finally completed my OWSI/MSDT training with Mermaids (I was one of those repeat offenders that just kept coming back!!)

Having now worked in the "real world" diving industry I cannot thank the amazing crew at Mermaids enough. I believe that you offer the best diver internship going around.

Several instructors I have worked with since have completed what is billed as "zero to hero" internships yet none of them have come out of their program with the kind of hands on experience and skills that I gained working under the likes of Russell, Desi, Ian B and Slinky and the awesome support staff at Mermaids.
