Property Description

Koh Phangan’s Number 1 Backpacker Beach Resort! Enjoy the coolest beach bar, craziest drinking games, and make new friends in our daily volleyball games on the beach.

Dancing Elephant started life 9 years ago as the island’s first backpacker hostel. In 2017, we moved to a new location on the beach in Baan Tai. We are proud to be more than just a beach hostel, as a place where hundreds of people come together to make new friends and enjoy the best Koh Phangan has to offer. Come alone, party together, and leave as lifelong friends.

Soak up a bit of sun, play beach volleyball, and enjoy happy hour with a beautiful sunset. Get involved with some drinking games while getting to know the other guests.
In addition to being located on the beach, we’re also in a prime spot to pregame before Half Moon Festival, Black Moon Party, and Jungle Experience. The Full Moon Party is a short taxi ride away but rest assured, we’ll still be showing you the best (not to mention safest) way to enjoy the party!

Best day to arrive:

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you arrive four nights before the Full Moon Party, as it’s a week-long festival rather than a single night of fun. Many people believe that the parties leading up to the main event are even better than the Full Moon party itself! Allow yourself to fully enjoy the full moon by NOT checking out the morning after. The party goes until after sunrise, followed by an AFTER PARTY.

You aren’t staying with us to experience the Full Moon on your own. You are staying with us to make loads of amazing friends to SHARE the experience with. Come a bit earlier to enjoy some great parties (before the Full Moon), and give yourself more time to get to know the people who’ll be partying with you! It’s in our nature to bring people together so if you think you’re going to chill by your lonesome all day, just know it won’t last long!

Staff:

Run by party veterans from America & Thailand and the crazy owners David and Nanda from France and Burma. Fellow travelers ourselves, we’re able to provide a great contrast of experience, worldwide knowledge and of course an amazing party that you'll never forget! You’ll be hard pressed to find a team more committed to providing an amazing Full Moon experience.

Mission:

We provide a clean and safe hostel, with vibrant character and colorful charm like no other you will visit in Asia. Regardless of whether you’re traveling solo or in a group, you’ll be calling this home straight away.

We strive to provide each and every one of our guests with five-star service along with a comfortable, friendly atmosphere that makes everyone feel at home. Each guest should expect to leave the island with newfound friends that they’ll be in touch with for a lifetime. This is a result of attracting amazing people such as yourself, and the five-night minimum which gives us plenty of time to bond!

Accommodation:

We have multiple dorms and private bungalows ranging in size with various views. Check out the photos of our newly opened 24 bed beach front dorm - it’s spectacular! You’ll never think about dorms the same way again. Everything is kept cool with 24 hour air conditioning to let you get a good night’s sleep, ready for the next day’s action.

We do fill up fast so book in advance!

Warm up parties:

We host warm up parties for all the major events on the island. A DJ playing live at the hostel, while you get to know the other dancing elephant party animals! We organize event tickets and cheap taxis to get you there safely and through the doors quickly. Who likes to wait?!

Day trips:

Get out of bed, hang overs aren’t that bad!!! There are many cool things to do in the day which are a whole lot better with 50 - 100 bunk mates all sliding and flying into water, enjoying sunsets on booze cruises and much, much more.

Directons to property:

After arriving in either Haad Rin or Thongsala pier you will take a short walk to the taxis. Let the taxi drivers that you are staying at Beach Club Dancing Elephant in Baan Tai. The drivers will advise you which taxi to jump into, and you should be paying no more than 100 THB per person.

Rules (for everyone’s safety and sanity!) ***

- No outside alcohol allowed on the premises
- No food or drink (water is ok) allowed in the dorms.
- No outside guests allowed in the dorms (protection of belongings)

Extras:

We provide towels, lockers, filtered drinking water, and free wifi. You will need to provide your own padlock for the lockers. All common areas and lockers under CCTV surveillance for the security of our guests and their belongings.

    Can't really say a word wrong, great bar, restaurant, location (on the beach) clean and very comfortable rooms, helpful staff.... Quite steep prices but it really was a nice place so worth it.

    Stayed in an 8 person room, was very spacious and great AC. The beds were very squeaky. The 32 person room seamed amazing and was a great time to hang out in. The staff did a great job creating a social atmosphere before full moon and helping us arrange transportation. The beachfront was beautiful with plenty of space to sit.

    Stayed at Dancing Elephant for the half moon party (August 2018). Location is perfect for half moon and the hostel is on the beach! Easy to rent a scooter to explore koh phangan. The hostel wasnt very busy during this time, but they still set up a great atmosphere and we really enjoyed the party warm up which included body painting and dancing! The hostel is clean and staff were friendly! They provide lockers, but bring your own lock.

    The staff were mediocre at best, we bought a couple drinks from the bar there and paid in advance and went to collect our drinks and the guy blantenly told us we did not pay and had to be charged again. We booked one room and got put in another completely different room. There were “secret parties” in the room they put us in every night until very late. The staff when we asked to moved us were not accommodating when it looked like there were multiple other beds they could have put us in.
