We're a gorgeous bungalow resort located in Baan Tai, in the heart of Koh Phangan! As well as our gorgeous beach huts, we also have a great restaurant and chill-out spot and a super chill-out spot - and we need YOUR help to turn it into a kickin' pre-party bar every night!
On the subject of parties.... Phangan is a PARTY island. We are located a 5 minutes drive to two of the biggest parties in Koh Phangan - Half Moon Festival and Jungle Experience, and just a 15 minutes taxi ride away from the Full Moon Party in Haad Rin. (We provide the taxis to Full Moon every month.)
In addition to those, we are a 5 minutes walk from many of the underground parties like Baan Sabai, Loi-Lay, Black Moon, Shiva Moon, and more.
We are a family-run Thai operation, but the owner, Pink, speaks great English - and is a lot of fun, too! If you come and volunteer with us, you'll also be sharing that experience with one more fellow volunteer. You could say the vibe here is like one of a family - and this is exactly the kind of vibe we like to share with our guests!
Our intention is that everyone who comes to stay here should feel warmly welcomed, and at home. And since
we believe 100% that the most important part of a business is the people involved in it, we need volunteers who are WARM, FRIENDLY, OUTGOING and CONFIDENT to help us make our mission!
We need volunteers who are happy, able and more than willing to LEAD GUESTS and help us LEAD THE VIBE...
We need people who just really want to make sure that everyone who stays with us is having the time of their lives.
Sound like you?!
*️IF YOU'RE JUST AFTER A FREE RIDE, AND DON'T REAAAAAALLY WANT TO WORK>>>>>>THEN PLEASE DON'T APPLY!*️
*️WE ASK OUR VOLUNTEERS TO STAY WITH US 3 MONTHS MINIMUM*️
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You'll be living and working with one of the original Thai families here on the island! As well as accommodation, you will also get to eat with the family and some alcohol (amount depends on how busy it is, we gauge it as we go along, but using core common sense here is key!).
Useful also to note that in between Full Moon and Half Moons, the island is quiet, and even though shift times may still apply, your shift will be more along the lines of chilling on the cushions in the restaurant with a good book :)
You’ll be given proper training on all aspects of the hostel help (plus your alternating shift schedules) once you’re arrived and settled in.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN OUR VOLUNTEERS IS TO BE SOCIABLE!
Please - antisocial people need not apply!
CONFIDENT AND OUTGOING INTROVERTS.... ALSO NEED NOT APPLY!
PLEASE ONLY APPLY if you're easygoing, confident, outgoing and EXTROVERT! We're looking for the kind of person we can rely on to get the party started, to get the guests talking to each other, and to take the lead when required. You'll need to get to know the guests, make friends with them, start some drinking games at the bar, perhaps even go to some parties with them, be the one they can ask for advice for all the best tips and things to do on the island.
Slip & Fly Water-park:
Yes.. you get free tickets every time you go with the guests :)
Actually, you will also be the ones selling tickets to the guests for these activities, and you will get commission for every ticket you sell!
At night time, you have to be able to work at the bar and socialize with the guests! If you want to accompany them out to party, then we usually have free tickets for our volunteers :)
Sound like fun to you?
If so... you could be just the kind of person we're looking for.
BUT BEFORE YOU EMAIL US SAYING YES! YES! YES! - please take good note of the following:
WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR people who drink too much, can't hold it in, and won't show up for their shift if they're on the morning after going out.
The other part of the job will be:
-checking guests in and out
-going over the map and telling them the best stuff to do
-helping guests with scooter rental
-promoting party tickets, ferry tickets, trips and other activity tickets, selling drinks, and basically handling money.
-cleaning rooms and changing sheets- ONLY ON THE CLEANERS DAY OFF
But if a guest spills a drink, we do expect you to care and give it a quick mop ;)
So on top of being the coolest cat in the house, we want our volunteers to be trustworthy as you're gonna have a lot of responsibility.
ARE YOU ALSO RESPONSIBLE, GROUNDED and WITH BAGS OF COMMON-SENSE?
If you've said yes to all of the above.... then BOOOOOOM! SEND US A MESSAGE! :)
