About Dancing Elephant Beach Club

Dear travelers,

Welcome and thank you to choose the Dancing Elephant Beach Club booking page.
What is the aim of your visit in Koh Phangan?
Incredible memories, discover beautiful location and people, sleep in stylish accommodation for an affordable price, delicious food, partying, mingling, doing sport, soaking sun light, adventures...
Dancing Elephant is providing all that in one amazing spot.
BEACH vs ROAD....we are on the beachfront. Check the location online, if you wish.

On the beautiful sunset beach in Baan Tai, overlooking Koh Samui island, situated on the grounds of a lush garden, the Dancing Elephant Beach Club & hotel is something truly unique. In Phangan, they are many resort located on the beach front, but not many hostel and we are one of them.
Each property is unique, but this one is art-oriented, with over 700 square meters of murals!
The Dancing Elephant was the first hostel to hit Koh Phangan in 2008, the first between the 3 archipelago islands, Ko Tao, Samui, and Phangan.
​With 11 years of non-stop activity, the Dancing Elephant has international popularity.
In 2017, the Dancing Elephant left its original location in Haadrin and moved to the beautiful beach in Baantai. In October 2017, we became a beachfront resort!
​We are proposing 2 types of accommodation, private bungalows and dormitories, to make happy everyone.
Dancing Elephant is not only a hotel & hostel, but a restaurant, a beach bar, a party place, and soon a sport complex!
Location, location, location:
Centrally located on the island, 45 minutes maximun of everywhere.
5 minutes from the main island pier and even less from Tongsala’s centre, with its traditional market, its walking street and local shops.
Haadrin village, where the world famous FULL MOON PARTY has been attended by tens of thousands of party-goers every month for over 35 years, is just 15 minutes away.
10 minutes from Half Moon Festival, Waterfall party and Jungle Experience

Soak up a bit of sun, play beach volleyball, and enjoy happy hour with a beautiful sunset.
In addition to being located on the beach, we’re also in a prime spot to pregame before Full & Half Moon Festival, Black Moon Party, and Jungle Experience.

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 coming to Phangan to experience the island 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!

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!

Spectacular accommodation:

We have multiple dorms and private bungalows ranging in size with various views. Check out the photos of our 24 bed beach front dorm - it’s spectacular! You’ll never think about dorms the same way again.
Our 32 and 24 bed dorms have a mix of single and double beds. If you are arriving in a booking of two or more people in these dorms you will be placed 2 people in a double bed. If you prefer a single bed, please book our 8 bed dorms.

We do fill up fast so book in advance!

Directions 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!) ***
