Even our driver who had lived in Bali all his life didn't know how to find this place - quite remote but well worth the visit... such a clean place and very well laid out landscaping.

Went to see what all the fuss was about and sure enough there were elephants chained up and yes this place is about making money , But to be honest I saw worse at the Safari and marine park , at least here I didn’t see open wounds from the mahouts mistreatment like I saw there. Apart from the chained... More

I visited the Elephant Park with the understanding the elephants were "rescued". While the original 11 were rescued, they are now chained to a hard ground surrounded by grass they can't reach. I also found it upsetting when I asked why our elephant was clearly disgruntled I was told he was angry because he was working overtime. The park is... More

Our transfers from the hotel were well organised and on time. It took about two hours to get from Nusa Dua to the park. It cost us $80 each as we had booked through our agent. Arriving at the park, we were greeted and headed off to ride on the elephant. We mounted and set off. I'd read some of... More

We recently stayed one night in one of the nice rooms at the hotel and enjoyed the time with the elephants. We greatly appreciate the efforts performed by Nigel and his staff. This is truly a good cause. The reason I am putting this as a poor rating is because of the restaurant experience along with managements procedures . When... More

hugging an elephant was on my bucket list so when I discovered azamara cruise offered a safari here for $299, my t.a. suggested I overnight here because a hotel room cost $300 per night. the paddy room overlooking a working rice paddy ($300) worked well for me. it was pleasant to sit on the balcony and listen to the sounds...

The Park itself is lovely, the Elephants seem to have lots of room and plenty of food, it was sad to see them all chained up but the stories of where they had come from makes me think this is still a better place. We got to feed a couple of the Elephants which was a great experience, and the... More

The best experience in Ubud!!! The park currently has 31 elephants that seem to be well taken care of. You get to ride an elephant for roughly 30 minutes , then to feed them and take photos of them.They also have a Talent show where you can watch them paint or do math calculations. The lunch buffet was delicious as... More
