Featuring sixteen twin cabins and four fixed double cabins, Koon 9 provides versatile accommodation options. Twin cabins can easily convert into doubles, boasting spacious beds. Each guest cabin offers a generous sea-view window, air conditioning, a private en suite bathroom, and some include a smart TV. Solo guests in twin cabins share with another same-gender guest, yet the expansive communal areas beckon for socializing during non-diving hours.

Koon 9’s facilities extend beyond cabins, with a capacious upper deck housing an air-conditioned lounge saloon adorned with comfortable sofas, armchairs, and a large TV equipped with multimedia and a Nintendo games console. The indoor dining room offers plenty of tables for savoring delectable Thai and Western cuisine, with continuous access to fruits, snacks, and complimentary soft drinks.

The expansive sundeck provides a breathtaking space with sun loungers and soft seating. Guests can relish morning coffee or evening drinks while taking in panoramic views and the refreshing sea breeze. The sundeck’s photogenic ambiance makes it an ideal spot for capturing memorable selfies.

Dive Deck

Being a dedicated scuba diving vessel, Koon 9 boasts a substantial diving platform, facilitated by its width. Each diver is allocated a personal tank slot and storage space for gear between dives. The non-slip floor ensures safety, and the attentive boat crew assists with gear and tender dinghies.
