Very Good8.0
At 8.30 am Elephants are brought from orphanage nearby you bathe. They literally walk past hotel front door to water which has runs under your bedroom balcony. A magical experience. Bedrooms spacious but plastic mattress protectors made beds sweaty.

The elephants are super cool to watch from the balcony. The room was big and clean and comfortable. The food was OK. It's all about the elephants! Staff were great.

Hotel Elephant Park
Great location right next to the river where the elephants bathe. However it is said that you receive free ticket into elephant park, however this is not completely true! We came early and were told we were not allowed to go down to the hotel early to check in without paying the ticket price because the elephants are bathing. So we had to either pay the ticket or wait until 4. Also the free ticket into the sanctuary is only for the bathing area you have to buy a new ticket to enter into the orphanage itself! Was a bit misleading!
