  • review rating 5  absolutely fantastic; waking up by the call of the monkeys after a good night rest in a rather luxurious room. By the way: also good food!

  • review rating 5  The highlight of our vacation. Great food. Many vegan options. Amazing views of elephants. Modern, clean and comfortable rooms. Best way to experience elephants and other animals without doing any harm. A magical place for young and old.

  • review rating 5  What an inspiring place. This is the future for wild life reserves around the world. We had the most amazing experience with elephants. Basically slept beside and above them. The founder Edwin and his team where so approachable and helpful. Stay the night to really fully experience the place. The restuarant had a sunset that blew my mind. The food is excellent and mainly vegan which suits my tastes and is in keeping with the not for profit organisations ideals. They support the local community and animal welfare. Five plus stars.

  •   We stayed here as guests (a group of 9 - mixed ages) for two nights. The I Love Phants Lodges are for guests visiting the WFFT centre. The lodges are well equipped, clean and modern with 5G wifi which is a bonus. The outside showers are brill, gas powered but most effective.
    The lodges are surrounded by an elephant enclosure and the elephants come to visit often. Its mind blowing. Volunteers stay in a different part of the centre.
    The cook assigned to the lodges does an amazing job with breakfast and dinner and is flexible with their approach - enquiring what guests would prefer. Five new lodges are opening in Feb 2018 and those are going to be spectacular. Cant wait to go back

  •   This place lives up to all of the excellent, 5-star reviews for Wildlife Friends Foundation. The one addition I would make is to recommend spending an extra night or two. It’s such a relaxing paradise — albeit a hot one — that we easily could have stayed longer.

    We arrived the night before our scheduled tour, but wish we could have extended our stay! Comfortable rooms (w/ A/C), great food, friendly staff, and amazingly cool sights and sounds on this animal preserve that features 25 elephants. We’ll be back!

  •   My partner and I stayed here for one night before leaving Thailand. We were greeted by a wonderfully nice woman who explained everything for us and took our meal orders. All our meals were included and they give you huge portions of delicious home cooked, freshly picked food. I’m vegan and had good options and they were very accommodating! We stayed in lodge 4 that has a beautiful bathroom, open bedroom area and wonderful porch over looking the elephant enclosure. The elephants stopped right in front of our porch multiple times. They’re very chill but so much fun to just watch. By the dinning area, 100 meters away, you can feed them and pet them. We stayed in a room with out AC. A large fan in the room kept us cool, but i think some rooms offer AC if you easily get hot. Once you get here, you don’t really leave. I sat on the porch journal, read, watched the wildlife, watercolor paints, watched the sun go down and my partner took a nap. Then we had dinner and afterwards the elephants continued to walk around our lodge. If you keep the window or back door open (has a screen) you can hear them come around and pop out to throw them fruit or say goodnight. One slept the whole night at our porch. It was so delightful. This was an such a beautiful place to stay.
