Best to stick with traditional Thai cuisines. The Italian...

We stayed in a three country view suite for our 30th anniversary in October 2016. The room was large and very nice. We were treated better than family by the staff and especially Tuk, the on site manager. She made sure everything was set up for us with the best tours and tour guides.

This facility is a trip everyone should take if at all possible. Not only is it an incredibly and beautiful location, between what you learn about elephants and their proper care, your relaxation time because of both the care you'll receive from the employees and the impeccable facility, will leave you mesmerized.
