We visited as part of an Eco tour and felt some of the attractions were a little rushed. The tour included elephant trekking, thai cooking demonstration, we would have preferred if we could have participated, Namuang waterfall 2 which was very disappointing, tiny area with hardley any water and far too many people, kayaking through the mangrove forest which was...

This is the worst place I have every been to. It was part of out Koh samui island tour and we had no idea it would involve this horrific place! Please if you like animals - never come here! It started off with an elephant show. The staff were taking money from members of the audience to get onto the... More

I was a tad sceptical about our visit to this park and after experiencing the shows and elephant trek I am totally against such parks. No animal was in their natural habitat nor were they allowed to roam freely. The sadness in the animals eyes, especially the elephants was quite hard to experience, with many animals kept in small areas... More

We booked the 45 minute elephant trek with a framed photo and trip to Waterfall 2. This was excellent. Our driver from hotel stopped on the drive there at a beautiful location looking over Lamai Beach from the mountain. The elephant trek was great and our guide even stopped part way through and allowed my husband and I to take... More

There were numerous fish in the aquarium, most of which we could not recognize. It would make our whole trip more informative if the acquarium introduce the fish by category or put some descriptions next to the tanks. However, we did have a good time watching those beautiful, cute or peculiar fish.

Absolutely not the enjoyable experience I thought it was going to be. I love elephants and thought this might be a nice sanctuary for them as it's set in the 'jungle' as described in all the marketing material. It was around $800 baht for half an hour and $1200 baht for an hour although I shopped around and managed to... More

We visited this park on a tour that included the grandfather& grandmother rock. After that,we did the elephant riding, it took about 25 minutes. Two people are sitting in a kind of gondola on the elephant, the mahout in front. The mahout carried a kind of ice pick and we saw one bleeding elephant. In this park, the animals are... More

Its up to you as to how you enjoy this park. Having been here several times it is an interesting enough place. A hefty walk up to the waterfall where you can bath in several pools, this is provided there is water, this latest trip saw most waterfalls on the island running pretty dry. The elephants are great to see... More

Don't expect wonders from the waterfalls in the dry season but it is a beautiful setting. Riding on elephants is worthwhile but don't bother paying for 'proper' photos as they take photos on your camera / phones for you and the tip is cheaper!
