It is very intimate here, just a few individual 'lodges', simple but adequate. The location of the hotel is lovely and quiet, well off the main road (a few minutes down a track) but at the same time perfect for the national park about 10 minutes along the main road. Also the elephant transit home is just a few minutes... More

We had a fine time here. The rooms are separate cabins, and the whole space is quite intimate. The only drawback was the occasional disco radio noise from out beyond the hotel (neighbours, not the fault of the hotel). The hotel is probably going to be expanded and upgraded, but it is fine right now. It is only about 7... More

We arrived laterafternoon and were given a lovely welcome with fresh watermelon juice. The bungalows are spacious and the open shower very unusual. The pool was gorgeous and... More

This place is just great; quirky, welcoming, homely and a little different. Staff were friendly, and the owner was a lovely chap, honest and chatty. The bungalows are comfy, big and the bathrooms are at one with nature! There wasn't really any hot water in our bungalow which was the only downside - but maybe this was just a blip.... More

This hotel is set in a very peaceful location and the rooms are really nice with an outdoor seating area, the bathroom was a little strange as it was down some steps and it got extremely hot in there, also the shower was open air, although there was some netting over the top I wasn't sure if other people could...
