Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

Dear travelers,

Welcome and thank you to choose the DANCING ELEPHANT-ECO FITNESS PHANGAN 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.


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!) ***

We will keep your passport at the reception for the ful duration of your stay (in case you need an emergency hospital care, it is better as so)

    The dancing elephant was the best hostel I’ve stayed in during my Thailand trip. The huge dorm is amazing, beds are comfy and there was ac. It was easy to meet new people and go for a party , but also a nice place to chill out and relax at the beach. David the owner is the most passionate hostel owner I’ve ever seen! I would definitely recommend staying here.

    My fave hostel in all of Thailand. Really good social vibe without being too crazy - like those places where you can’t even get a night’s sleep. We stayed in the under the sea dorm - big comfy double beds, personal light, curtain, power sockets, good WiFi. The owners are really nice, take the time to walk you round and introduce you to everyone. Perfect location, right on the beach. Max’s drinking games are a lot of fun, even in the tuk tuk on the way to a party he’ll have you playing Zuma Zuma!

    Loved staying here for the Half Moon! David and Nanda (the owners) are such lovely people. You’re welcomed and made to feel at home as soon as you arrive. The location is perfect, right on the beach and the dorms are an actual work of art. I’ve stayed at a few “chain” hostels before, but will definitely be booking independent ones from now on. The atmosphere was great, Max and Daniel kept everybod entertained with fun games and music! And as a solo female traveler, I felt safe and comfortable.

    Best hostel ever. Dancing elephant crew you are the best! Couldnt stay in the big room because it was fully booked but you should definitly stay here when its possible. The other rooms are not realy nice, a few more charging points would make it better but who cares when there is a great bar and a beach with many faciliti’s to hang out. Atmosphere in te hostel is great. And you don’t have to go out for dinner cause you wouldn’t find better food than they serve in te hostel. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    One of the coolest hostels I've ever stayed at. Located right on the beach, this place is all about party all night and chill all day. The big dorms are amazing, try to book your stay in there. It doesn't have a lock (no risk of losing keys!), but there are lockers for your valuables. Staff is friendly and know how to get the party started. In the morning (or afternoon), you drag yourself to the beach, plop in a hammock and enjoy the sun with a coconut from the bar. Rent a scooter to get around.

    Leuk hostel! De kamers zijn prachtig; je belandt midden in de zee of in de jungle. De bedden zijn groot en kunnen worden afgeschermd met een gordijntje. Het personeel is vriendelijk en heel zorgzaam. Als je een party op het eiland wilt meepakken word je uitgebreid ingelicht over de do's en dont's. Een absolute aanrader.
