Property Description

Dancing Elephant is now on the beach!

After nine amazing years of full moon insanity, we are treating our Dancing Elephant family to bigger and better accommodation to enjoy during your stay in Koh Phangan!
If you wish to stay close to the Full Moon party check our original hostel, "Dancing Elephant No.1 party hostel" (bookable on Hostelworld) located right in the middle of the action, in Haadrin.

I Baantai, we’re taking our game to the next level at a beach front location that every traveler will enjoy. We’re elevating to a classier, exclusive, and overall better level of the party.

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 your fellow guests, as the evening slowly escalates into classic Dancing Elephant madness!

In addition to being located on the beach, we’re also in a prime spot for the 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!

If you have any doubts about our capabilities check out the reviews from our original, Dancing Elephant Number 1 Party Hostel!

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 togethe,r so if you think you’re going to chill by your lonesome all day, just know it won’t last long!


Run by party veterans from Northern Ireland, America, Thailand, France 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 a bloody good party that you'll never forget! You’ll be hard pressed to find a team more committed to providing an amazing Full Moon experience.


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!


We have multiple dorms and private bungalows ranging in size with various views.

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. We organise 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 Thongsala. The drivers will advise you which taxi to jump into, and you should be paying no more than 100 THB per person.

Latest Review

" Davin, Megan, Marco, Alex and the whole staff really make it feel more like a small family at the hostel from the time I showed up. I wasn't there during half or full moon times so the atmosphere was more relaxed but you can find parties every night a short taxi ride away if you want. Great areas to lay around, sand volleyball, kiteboarding with a bar and restaurant right by the beach. The staff was more than happy to help with daytrip suggestions, scooter rental, and transport.
