10 Best Mid Range Full Moon Party Hotels

10 Best Mid Range Full Moon Party Hotels

The most convenient place to stay if you are going to the Full Moon party is Haad Rin town, which borders the famous party beach. Save yourself the hassle of getting transport to and from the party. Getting there is no problem, but getting back can be a pain and it can be expensive.

Beaches

There are three beaches on the Haad Rin peninsula:

  1. Haad Rin Nok – This is also called the Sunrise Beach and the Full Moon Party Beach
  2. Haad Rin Nai – This is a smaller beach that is west facing. It is sometimes called the Sunset Beach
  3. Haad Leela – Also known as Haad Seekantang. This is further south on the tip of the peninsula

Haad Rin Accommodation

Some of the accommodation in Haad Rin is very poor quality. If you want somewhere to stay which is nice, stick to our list below. The Coast is also really good, as is Best Western Phanganburi, but they are both slightly further away from the Party.

Description

book Amaresa ResortAmaresa is one of the more unusual resorts in Haad Rin. It’s out on the tip of the peninsula in a densely wooded area. It has spectacular beach and sea views over to Koh Samui. It also has a restaurant dramatically perched on the cliff edge. Up until 2011 all the accommodation was very basic wooden bungalows with fans, balconies and not much else. The resort still has these bungalows and they are a good option if you want a cheap and ‘old school’ stay. However, they now also have a number of extremely nicely built wooden houses which come with satellite TV, hot water, air-conditioning and tea/coffee maker. If you like staying in ‘Eco-style’ houses then this is the best option for you in Haad Rin. This is a really good, if unusual, resort and will suit you if you want to go to the party but have the option of getting away from it when you have had enough.
