MV Pawara Liveaboard Details

Pawara Liveaboard Thailand

The MV Pawara is 32m or 105ft in length, and built of steel making her one of the largest liveaboards plying the western Indian Ocean. She takes a total of 24 divers in 12 air conditioned cabins on regular departures, but some of her cabins are large enough to accommodate more than this on special request. She has three types of cabins: standard, deluxe and master, and both types are air conditioned, both twin and double bed combinations depending on the cabin.

The Saloon

The saloon is generously appointed and has comfortable seats centered around the huge flat screen TV situated on a well organized bookshelf with a large library. The saloon is designed so that small groups can gather comfortably for private chats, yet still at the same time seat all passengers.

The Cabin Configuration

There are four types of cabins on the MV Pawara; budget, standard, deluxe and master.

Budget rooms are on the lower deck, have two cross-lined bunks, twin beds only. The rooms share a bath with the crew. These cabins are really designed for those really on a budget who can handle cramped accommodation. Youngsters and oldsters, please note.

Standard rooms are on the lower deck and can be arranged as twins or doubles. These rooms each have a sink, toilet, hot shower, plenty of storage space and 220v outlets.

Deluxe rooms are on the main deck and are all twin beds. These rooms have larger windows, have large desks, and 220v outlets thus are ideal for underwater photographers. These each also have a sink, toilet and hot shower.

Master cabins are on the main deck forward and have large windows all around for the best views. These rooms can be made as twins or doubles, have 220v outlets, and have larger bathrooms equipped with sink, toilet and hot shower.

Service Oriented

The Pawara gets rave reviews for her level of service, and her ability and willingness to solve any type of problem or go that extra mile to get the job done. Her crew is outstanding as are most of the crews in friendly Thailand. The divemasters each season are chosen for their charm, diving abilities and their understanding of the word customer service.
