It's average but not many selections in Yala. Bit run down and not maintained, food was ok, chef made anything we wanted for the kids... Staff were nice. They had bunnies everywhere and a play ground for the kids. You can talk to safari jeeps outside of hotel ..

Myself and my office colleagues went on a trip to Yala last week. We were very keen about the hospitality that we are going to get. Therefore, we call and spoke to most of the hotels that are surrounded in Yala. Finally we finalized Elephant Reach. They provided excellent support even before we arrive to Elephant Reach.

We had visited hotel elephant reach with my family and friends. The hotel look was like jungle type theme. The rooms were good and swiming pool was neat and clean. The restaurant was good but service was too slow. The atmosphere out of the room was good with so many rabbits and cat feeling good for children's.

Very friendly staff. Good place to relax. Easy access to wild life and a few religious places. Food selection too is good. room service is up to standard. Need little bit of extra seating in the lobby area.
