We were lucky enough to stay at Elephant Hills for 3 days/2 nights on Jungle Safari tour. The highlight by far was of course the elephant experience - an amazing opportunity to interact with these gentle giants in a totally responsible and ethical way. We travelled with our 3.5 yr old daughter and the excitement and awe on her face... More

I truly enjoyed this experience. From the elephants to the food and the day trips it was just splendid. Our guide meaw was wonderful and helpful. It is definitely worth a trip here. The Thai dance from the school children was very sweet. Also I don't know how they managed it but there literally wasn't one mosquito in their tents.... More

We had two nights at elephant hills and this was the highlight of our Thailand holiday. Our travel agent had booked the two nights at elephant hills rather than one at elephant hills and one at the lake camp as we originally wanted as they said lake camp was unavailable. When we got there however we spoke to the staff... More

From the very first moment that we arrived at Elephant Hills we entered a magical world that we have never experienced anywhere else. The tents at both sites were fantastic - well designed, spacious, clean and welcoming. Bathing and feeding the elephants was amazing. The elephants are well cared for and their original mahouts live with them and care for... More

Wanting to do something different that doesn't include air-conditioning and modern technology this a must. Spending time with the elephants in their own environment and getting up close and personal with them was an amazing experience so much more than we thought it would be. The accommodation was very comfortable and a fan can keep you cool enough also listening... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Elephant Hills combines the African Safari tent camp idea with the breathtakingly beautiful environment of Khao Sok in Southern Thailand. Furthermore, the resort offers 2-5-day soft adventure tours, including kayaking, lake explorations, mangrove expeditions, jungle treks and the unique Elephant Hills elephant experience. Here you get to wash, feed and interact with Asia's largest land animal in a sustainable and fun way. Elephant Hills does not offer Elephant riding out of respect towards the elephants. ... more   less
