Travellers in search of stylish Koh Phangan hotels should look to none other than Rasananda Koh Phangan Villa Resort & Spa for the best deals in town. Offering guests a range of luxurious accommodation options this breathtaking spa resort is one of the finest in the island.
Regarded as a holiday hub where revelry is a way of life, Koh Phangan is no ordinary beach vacation destination in Thailand. Renowned for its late night Full Moon parties and vibrant nightlife this one stop party Mecca is home to some of the wildest night time distractions in the country. With bars and nightclubs at every turn Koh Phangan is divided in to several party districts with its own unique blend of nightly attractions for holidaymakers.
Haad Rin is perhaps the beach Mecca’s most famous party venue as it is home to the largest number of cozy bars and discos in all of the Gulf of Thailand. Hosting the world renowned Full Moon parties with the attendance of nearly 30,000 revelers, the globe’s best beach party takes place on the moonlit beaches of Haad Rin Nok with elaborate light displays and larger than life sound systems churning out dance music that can be heard beyond the reaches of Haad Rin.
Ban Tai on the other hand hosts the Half Moon parties and the Black Moon Party during the middle of each month with trance and techno beats keeping dancers on the beach shores till dawn. Serious partygoers in search of a less mainstream party scene can venture down to a clearing deep within the Ban Tai forest for a jungle party experience like no other. As an underground and exclusive dancing experience this lesser known eco-friendly party is a must-experience highlight for discerning night prowlers. Bucket parties are equally intriguing as it incorporates a fire swing and fire displays with revellers consuming their favourite spirit from a bucket.
Visitors on the lookout for a relaxing night out in Koh Phangan should head down to Ao Chao Phao close to Sri Thanu village where the Pirate Bar hosts nightly events three days preceding the Full Moon party each month. Chaloklum Bay’s Cafe Del Mar is another hotspot for food lovers and house music fans while Thong Sala also houses its fair share of pubs and pool bars that are perfect for a memorable night out.
