Baan Tai is exactly the area you want to stay in for all the island's famous jungle parties, including Half Moon Festival, Maya, Jungle Expererience, Sramanora Waterfall Party and Shiva Moon. We're also within walking distance to Black Moon, Baan Sabai and Loi Lay floating bar party which is on every Sunday night and hosts some of the best DJs worldwide. We're a 15 minute drive to Haad Rin for Full Moon.
Baan Tai is also smack bang in the middle of Haad Rin and Thong Sala - the island's main town and pier, so we're a really great base to explore the rest of the island from. You can rent mopeds from us, and we'll give you all our hot tips for the best beaches, waterfalls and viewpoints!
We can also book and advise on all kinds of activities for you - including Angthong Marine Park, Slip n Fly Waterpark. quadbiking, ziplining, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, jewellery making, cooking/Muay Thai/yoga classes and much, much more!
Choose from our range of comfortable, bright, airy and whistle-clean rooms: Our deluxe dorms (including one female-only) sleep just six people, so there are just three bunks in here...no getting stuck in army-like 20-bed barracks here! All such deluxe dorms are air-conditioned, and have their own large private bathroom with hot water shower plus large private balcony (with either sea or jungle view).
We also have a cheaper basic six-bed fan dorm on ground level, which also has its own private bathroom with cold water shower. Be aware, though, that the name says it all (*BASIC!!!!*). There's really not too much room in here, and it's also right next to the lounge/bar so can sometimes be noisy.
**From 10th July 2016 private rooms will no longer be available.
