  • Do not go here!!!! I booked to stay here and left the same day in tears (I didn't care that I lost my money and wouldn't get a refund). The elephants are chained up, they cant roam around. they have.....  more »
  • This is terrible because they use a hook! They are not friendly at all. If you love animals and if you care about their well-being then don’t go.  more »
  • The best elephant park i ever visited. Over 20 elephants are groomed and they are such a big family. So many activities can be enjoyed but i only did 30 minutes safari tour. Wash and Bathe together with elephant is also available, this is very unique experience. Very recommended while visiting Bali.
  • The hotel services are great! When we arrived at the hotel, they offer us the cold towel which contain rose water. It's really making us felt good after the long ride and the towel is smell good. They also serves us the cold soda drink and the taste really wonderful with the beautiful colors orange and pink. The room service is also good, they give us a plate of fruits, greeting letters, glass-bottles water, pajamas, and some big towels for taking a bath, medium towels for washing our face, and the small one. The room is really comfortable, and they also provide us with complete electronic things like mini refrigerator, electric kettle, hair dryer, tv, ac, van, and card-key system. The food is also good and every morning we can eat rice, but there are also cereals and breads. The pool is also clean but not too big. The vibes are too calm there, but it is good for those who want to take a calm holiday or honeymoon. It is a good place. Why I give 4 stars? It is because I felt sorry for those elephants. I enjoy the scenery with some elephants around the hotel rooms, but I felt sad because the owner asked the hotel staffs to chain the elephants with the big-short chain on one of their feet and most of the elephants are stood up on the outdoor because they have limited cage with roof and those are used to put the sick elephants. Here, we can see and enjoy the elephant show but I felt sad for the elephant because the staffs used the sharp hammer to give instruction for the elephants. This sharp hammer make some elephants have wounds on their heads and around their backs and buttocks. When people wants to ride the elephants without any saddle or chair abive the elephants, it is still okay. However, the service of riding elephant around the forest used a heavy chairs that's put on the back of the elephants and people can sit calmly on that while enjoying the scenery from the top of the elephants. I just felt sorry because the elephants have to be injured and get some wounds over their body to give the best service for people like us. They need to do that to satisfy the visitors and in order to get the delicious food (branch of the trees). Maybe if the owner see my review, I hope you can improve the services especially for the elephants because you already kidnapped them from their habitats and used those elephants as the part of your business. If you can't improve your services for the elephants or take a good care of the elephants, I hope the elephants can be set free as before in the wild forest as their habitat.
