Short, but wonderful stay here! It was an amazing experience to be in such close proximity with the elephants of Elephant Whispers Sanctuary, as well as the resident hippos! The staff at this resort was absolutely wonderful! Very accommodating and welcoming upon arrival. We will definitely utilize this facility during our next trip!

The room was very nice and the area was pretty. The restaurant seemed over priced and there was only wifi in the common areas.
