The hotel is situated just a a few minutes walk from elephant transit, which was pretty convenient. Very spacious room with a modern design, clean and super comfy. Breakfast was quit filling and delicious. Diner was also quite good. Very nice and clean swimming pool. We are totally recommend to stay in this hotel if you are planning to do a safari or visit elephant transit.

The hotel is perfectly located in front of the Elephant Orphanage. The rooms were clean, spacious and had all the facilities you need. With only 8 rooms available it served us well with little to no disturbances. Pool was very clean and well looked after, and sunbeds around the pool were always available. Food in the restaurant was of a high standard. Check in and out was very easy. Stay was incredibly reasonable, the rooms were amazing value for money. Rooms were set back from the main road so we didn't hear traffic during our stay.

Great hotel, quiet, clean, beautiful. The hotel is sooo nice! We stayed for one night for a safari, which was organized for us at the same hotel at an adequate price. The guide was very good, polite and smiling. He drew our attention to animals that we ourselves did not notice. The reception sells cool magnets and books about animals. Breakfast and dinner are beautifully presented and delicious! Value for money - quality - fire! The pool is small but nice. And the staff is very nice and friendly. We have only good impressions from this place! I would love to come back again! 🙂
