Beautiful scenery and wonderful experience

Review of Elephant Hills
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Feb 2024via mobile
We stayed here for 2 nights at the forest camp. It really was a wonderful experience.
Activities are laid on, so we had the canoe trip down the Sok river, then seeing and feeding the elephants, a hike through the forest, and a day at the lake camp. Our guide, Nong, was great - really fun, and always smiling.
The main dining area is an open sided building, with large tables with benches, which encourages meeting other people. The food is a buffet style, of a good standard.
The location is amazing with forest and mountain views, and the tents in the camp are very civilized, with a proper bathroom.
Fantastic experience, and didn't get bitten by a mosquito once!

We had a wonderful stay at elephant hills jungle camp. Initially we were a bit worried about not having any air con at night to sleep but the fans were sufficient to keep the room cool and luckily our tent was in the shade throughout the day.
It’s a full on itinerary but such a wonderful experience I would recommend anyone to go. The camp is organised like clockwork and the staff are super friendly and lovely. The food is great and plenty of variety and free water top ups. The bar has a great variety too and yes it is slightly more expensive but that is understandable given the location and was pretty reasonable . The whole camp is immaculate and authentic and just wonderful. Unlike anywhere I’ve ever been and so worth going to.

You only get a few hours with the elephants but it truly was a magical experience and feeding them and watching them bathe was just wonderful

The Khao sok lake trip was stunning and so lovely to swim in the lake and go kayaking around the beautiful inlets. The visit to the dam was great and you had wonderful views all around.

Ing was our guide and she was great. Excellent English and very knowledgable and kind and caring. Everything is explained well and timings are spot on.

So glad we got to experience this resort and the staff on reception are fabulous

The tents are great with everything you need and it’s a wonderful experience to hear the sounds of the jungle throughout the night

The pool is small but fantastic and with a stunning backdrop. All in all a wonderful stay and experience and we are so glad we did it

Room tip: The itinerary is full on. Prepare to have a rest after. Mossie repellent and a dry bag

We stayed at the Elephant hills floating tented camp at the beginning of December. We had great weather. Staying on the water was such a fun experience. We went on the hike with the guide and had quite an adventure. The trek was very steep and once you start you can’t turn back. We would suggest bringing hiking shoes, as we did. We did not have some of the troubles others on the hike did. They also had a kayak trip that you could go on. We swam with the large carp in front of our tent and fed them popcorn. We loved listening to the monkeys! We would recommend this trip into Khao Sok National park.

We really enjoyed our 3 day 2 night day trip sandwiched between stays in a hotel in Khao Lak. It was wonderful to meet the older elephant ladies and stay in the jungle. The real highlight for us was the trip to the lake and overnight stay in the floating camp. I’ve been to many wonderful places in the world but the lake was one of the most peaceful and unspoilt. I could happily have spent a couple more nights there if it was an option. The food in both camps was great and it is a very well oiled machine! If you’re not keen on regimented activities it might not be the place for you but they do it very well.

Excellent experience from start to finish . Everything was expertly planned. The staff were amazing - special shout out to Saow .
Would recommend this to anyone. Seeing the elephants was wonderful but staying on the lake was a once in a lifetime experience -waking up to gibbons calling to each other . Early morning swimming in the lake was perfect .

This was a fantastic tour which worked like clockwork considering how many guests they had from our Pick up in krabi to our dropoff in Koh Samui. The food was amazing . The highlight of course is getting to feed the elephants as well as watching them in the water. The lake stay a close 2nd and is a must and is beautiful. Drinks are also reasonably priced.
