Nice concept of prtecting endangered sumatran elephants and letting people to interact with them (did was tem and go swim with them), but does not really compare with true safari parks where animals would have a choice to roam free. Elephants are tethered on individual spots around the park when not working, thy hae very little opportunity for communal interaction.... More

I went with a friend to the Elephant Safari Park and Lodge and we stayed 4 nights. What a magical place. From check in until leaving staff service was exceptional. Stayed in a Garden View room and enjoyed the elephant chaffeur service to dinner and rides through the forest (all included). The gardens are immaculate and many different types of... More

We stayed overnight in a garden view room which was lovely and clean with a really nice large, sunken marble bathroom. The room was decorated simply but well; I liked the picture on the wall painted by an elephant! The downside with our room was the outside noise carried inside and you could clearly hear other people’s conversations as they... More

The Good: Elephant ride was nice. The elephants are friendly and its fun to fee them and hug their trunks. Pick up from hotel. The Average/Bad: The elephants are chained and look miserable but when unchained and interacting look a bit more lively. Buffet is very average. Relatively expensive for people on a budget. BABY elephants are not with their... More

Ignore any bad reviews of this place, it doesn't have anything bad about it. We went for a day trip. The transfer from hotel was excellent, the park is lovely and the elephants seem well loved and looked after. The ride was nice but just getting close and feeding these beautiful animals is worth it alone. A must if you... More

i would not recommend anyone to stay there if you have any compassion for animals! As an animal lover i was really looking forward to staying there and interacting with there marvellous creatures in their habitat. However its completely different to what they show on their website! All the animals are constantly chained at their feet, and always looking nervous... More

We visited the Park as part of our honeymoon trip to Bali and we were beyond ourselves with excitement. The tour included hotel transfer, park admission, hand feeding, safari ride and buffet lunch all in one package. Some say that riding an elephant through the cool jungle of Taro is an experience you will never forget; well, that is what... More

What an amazing hotel. I recently travelled to the Elephant safari lodge with my husband and two children 4 and 2. We only stayed one night and that was fine for our age children From the moment we arrived we felt welcome including a personal escort to our room by a friendly staff member. That night it was so exciting... More

Stayed in a park view room and never wanted to waste a second of the view, both night and day. Spent 2 1/2 days there and still didn't want to leave. Staff amazing and made us feel like we were the most important people in the world. Washing, bathing, feeding, riding and just sitting and watching the elephants was an... More
