“Hidden Gem in Jomtien”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The most beautiful gardens and pool, your own private plunge pool spa, Its location is great a short walk down to the main street to the restaurants,and to catch the Baht Bus to Pattaya

You have your own lovely bedroom and bathroom downstairs, an upstairs toilet next to the spa, lovely terrace with an outdoor kitchen to sit and read and relax a beautiful ambiance and would suit a group of people as you could book the whole place out. Its is so private we felt like we were the only people there. The lovely Thai manager Boy was helpful and on arrival into Bangkok airport our driver was waiting so all in all a very easy transfer.
I would defiantly go back and stay there especially if friends were coming too. cost was only 68 AUD a night and well worth it, its more of a villa , no reception and no breakfast,but you dont need it everything is close by.

Room Tip: All villas the same I think

After traveling to 46 countries, and sleeping in tents by the road, to condos looking at Table Mountain, I can say these are the finest quarters I have stayed in. Two bedrooms, court yard, living and dinning areas in both, an office and a private pool. Complete with daily maid service, and a 15 minute walk to a beach, we do not use. All for $95 a night. Oh, and the great room ceiling is not painted, but hung with silk.
The owner, and manager, are very helpful and cooperative.
There are also one bedroom units, which are also supposed to be superb, but I have not seen them.
The only drawback is there is no dedicated web site. I had to go through Homeaway, out of the UK.

Although I have travelled to Jomtien on many occasions, I had never come across The Three Elephants. Upon arrival, it looks like you are in a local soi (st)-not a hotel in sight. A high wall surrounds the property, and upon entering, it was a sight for sore eyes! The Manager, Boy was there to greet us, and provided us with maps and directions in Thai back to the resort. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach.Bungalows are two floors, with the bedroom downstairs. Furnishings are lovely, and as there are only five bungalows on the property, it is very quiet at night. I was so impressed with everything, I have booked another week in September!

Room Tip: They are all great!!!

After a very long plane ride we were picked up promptly at bangkok airport by our driver from Three Elephants and driven approx 1 1/2 hrs to Pattaya. When we arrived in the middle of the night down a side alley we were beginning to think we made a big mistake. But suddenly the door was opened by Boy and that is when we stepped into another world, a picture from a magazine. We were led along a path lined with twinkling lights and lush tropical plants and trees. Our villa, one of five, was a sight to behold. An open air kitchen led the way to our very spacious, air conditioned unit. We had our own hottub and shared pool steps away. Everything was luxury at it's finest. Even included laundry done daily(we tipped of course). It is situated in the better part of Pattaya with new buildings deveolping. Close to shopping,great restaurants, beach and very easy transportation by the little trucks that continually travel around town for only 10 bahts per person(35 cents). The beach isn't the best at the beginning and is usually visited by the locals. We went midway across from a 7/11 for ice cold beer. A beach chair is about 1 dollar for all day long.We thoroughly recommend this beautiful place to anyone wanting the full Thai experience at an exceptionally unbelievable low price. We really can't say enough about this great find. Everything Trip Advisor said about it was right spot on.

Room Tip: Any room is great although not all had an outside washroom . was handy when using the pool and hot t...

Just returned 1 week after a beautiful holiday at the "Three Elephants" and for the first time I feel the urge to write nothing but positive comments !!!

It is situated at approx 90 min. drive from Suvarnabumi airport Bangkok, in a nice quite dead end street. OK, the road from the main street to the bungalow show some pits, but that's the only disadvantage of the neighborhood: some Seven Eleven shops or Foodmart shops, pharmacy at walking distance. No bhat-buses in the neighborhood, but you can catch one after a 5 min. walk as well. After a 15 min walk you will reach the beach and nice restaurants. Actually, the place is situated in Jomtien, but the connection to the center of Pattaya is great.

After the tour given by Ruud, the owner, we discover that the bungalows are very nice & decent, inside and outside: you reach the property via a door that can be closed for unwanted visitors, followed by a path that goes to the central place with a quite small pool. From this pool, there are 5 paths to the 5 bungalows which are created Thai/Bali style, with an outside restroom and a quite big terrace with view on the central area with the pool. Plants/trees in the garden guarantees privacy on your terrace while eating, relaxing, playing games, reading, cooking. The terrace is open (but still there are 2 ceiling fans) and equipped with a kitchen with a big fridge (with ice making cubes), toaster, combi-microwave oven, gas + electric cooking, electr. kettle, coffee making machine (Senseo), a sink and there is a box with teabags & coffeepads that are re-filled everyday. You also get 2 bottles of fresh water every day. Sugar or diet suger is supplied in the kitchen as well.

The cleaning team (min 2 max 3 persons) come everyday to clean your bungalow and make up the bed. Sheets are not refreshed daily, but I always thought that this is not really needed (nobody does this at home). They are very friendly and smile every time they come & go. They actually even now some English! Tips are really appreciated. The same ladies come every night, before the night falls, to light some coils (against mosquitos) and there is an electrical device to eliminate flying insects. There is sufficient light everywhere to spend the evenings on the terrace if that's what you like.

The living room is provided with a floor ventilator, a TV (satellite), a desk, a chair, a lounge area with eastern designed sofas, and 2 "normal" sofas with a small table. Wifi is available & for free, but you have to sit outside for a good connection (which is not a problem with the Thai temperatures). The bedroom and bathroom are both situated downstairs through quite awkward stairs, this requires some exercise. The bedroom is quite big with a big bed for 2 persons, plenty of space to put your clothes (maybe there should have been some extra hangers), a desk and a chair, TV, sufficient lighting. The mattress is - according to our personal western experience - too hard, but this is quite common for Thai standards. Airco in the bedroom is excellent and very quite.

The bathroom is well equipped with 2 wash-bowls, a big mirror and a big shower. No bath, no airco, but if you open the entrance door, the airco of the bedroom will also cool off the bathroom.

There is a wooden box in the bedroom where you can put used clothes, and to our big surprise it was empty the day after, but the day after that they came back washed & ironned (and for free!!).

Ohh, I almost forgot: at the side of the bungalow (also with privacy) there is also a jacuzzi with cool water. It is started automatically at approx 12h30 and is on for only 2 hrs. Too bad you can not control it yourself and that there are only 3 jets working, but that's a small detail for us.

Except the cleaning crew and the clerk who comes once to receive the due amount, privacy is well respected by the staff & owner. Their intervention was never needed and everything works perfect.

In a few words: it was a very fine, relaxing, comfortable bungalow with all luxury we can expect against a competitive price. Looking forward to our next holiday and we believe that the booking will not be postponed much longer!

We stayed in the VIP bungalow at the Three Elephants resort in Jomtien, Thailand for 7 days. The property is very conveniently located in central Jomtien not far from the beach and has restaurants and a convenience store very nearby. Catching a taxi from here to get into Pattaya was no problem. The property... Wow. A lovely and well-maintained bungalow with a private pool, very spacious living accommodations and a well outfitted kitchen, living room and dining room. Mr. Ruud and Mr. Boy and all of their staff did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed and any issues were immediately addressed well beyond our satisfaction. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property for your next getaway -- this beats staying in any 5 star hotel easily!

Beautiful villa, beautifully decorated and spacious. Situated in a lush garden with pool and private jacuzzi. Only 5 villa so it is very quiet. Cleaning every day, every day new coffee pads and water. One of the best places we have ever stayed.

Room Tip: No, all the villas are great!
