The 4 night stay in the executive suite was really an amazing experience. The combination of privacy, luxury and scenery makes for the best possible getaway and really set the tone for the rest of our honeymoon and marriage. I would recommend the venue to anyone who needs to recharge their batteries before going back to the hustle and bustle... More

Absolutely fantastic place. Staff where great. Atmosphere was great. Elephants where so funny and playful. To sleep at lodge and watch the elephants eat and sleep with just a few metres away was amazing experience I wont forget. They were just part of your living room. Bedrooms were so spacious and comfortable. Highly recommend you visit

We enjoyed our stay at Elephant Hide sooo much! All staff Ellie, Fish and Mandy were so kind and helpful. The room was excellent with a beautiful view over the lagoon. Self catering facilitates would be ideal for people who prefer it. Overall it was a memorable stay and we wouldn't mind going back. Thanks for a wonderful time.
