Initial concern, but had an amazing stay

Like others who wrote a negative review, we were concerned when we first pulled into the resort. It did look a little round down and we were concerned that this was not a true five star luxurious resort. However, from the time that we were first welcomed to the property until the moment that we departed, every single staff member went out of his or her way to make our stay nothing short of perfect. The attention to detail was excellent. For example, our room had a musty smell, but they quickly rectified by burning incense. The rooms are incredibly spacious, and have great amenities. We did two activities while here: the elephant learning experience and walking with giants. Both of these were fantastic and really highlight the reason that people should come to this resort. Not to be overlooked, the food was excellent. The options are endless for both local Thai cuisine and western food. We traveled as a family of five and everyone look forward to meals. I understand why some people who travel and stay at luxury/five-star resorts might feel that this resort falls short of the luxurious category. However, it is 5 star regarding the quality of food, amazing activities that they offer, and how each staff member makes you feel like a V.I.P. It is definitely worth the trip. I cannot imagine how this experience can be replicated.

A feast for the senses

We spent three days here and loved it. The location is beautiful and a real contrast to the other places we visited in Thailand. All the staff were friendly and helpful but special mentions to Tuk who was in touch with us prior to our stay and helped things run smoothly during our stay (and even beyond it). Also to Jam who seems to work everywhere all of the time! The elephants are great and it's a privilege to get to walk with these magnificent beasts. Spiced spoons was well worth doing - chef Jino is a genius who deserves a michelin star but he's also a really nice guy and a good teacher.
