3) Smoking Policy:
All lodge rooms are non-smoking rooms both inside and on balconies. Designated smoking areas are provided.
4) Solar Power:
In aim of providing eco tourism our I-Love-Phants Lodge is run through solar panels. Due to this there may occasionally be weak power and in this instance we are able to switch the power from Solar to main in order to provide full power again.
As we are in a forested area of Thailand, there are many insects around including many mosquitos. Each room has insect nets at each window for your comfort but we do suggest bringing insect repellent along for evenings spent in the more open communal areas. (Insect repellent is available in our local village). In the region of Phetchaburi we are away from the range of Mosquito born diseases such as Dengue fever and Malaria although we do advise to check with your doctor as to which vaccinations they suggest you have for your travels.

Eat Thai food in Khao Look Chang
Khao Look Chang has a few traditional local restaurants where delicious Thai food can be sampled with a relaxed atmosphere completely submerged in Thai culture - there is even a local restaurant where dishes are served from a locals home kitchen! Wherever you choose to dine, we suggest trying a traditional Thai curry soup - watch out for the spice!
Relax and unwind with a beach day
Head to our local towns of Cha Am or Hua Hin for a relaxing day on the beach. Sample the local Thai cuisine and soak up the rays in the beautiful cities. Hua Hin is famous with the locals for housing one of the King’s largest palaces in the country and becomes very popular with locals at the weekends as it is the most southern beach resort on the mainland.
Water sports Galore
Both of our local towns provide a huge selection of adrenaline pumping water sports from Ringo’s to flying banana boats along with jet skis and more relaxing Lilo’s for sale on street stalls. Cool yourself down and go for a splash in the waters of the Andaman Sea.
Wat Khao Look Chang
Visit our local buddhist temple located just 5 minutes walk from the rescue centre to see one of the few areas believed to have been where Big Buddha has walked. Stroll around the grounds in order to see the 15m lying down Buddha and climb the temple to the top of the rocks to see a traditional temple - just make sure to cover your knees and shoulders to show respect.
Night Markets - Bargains and Bazaars
Our local village offers very small night markets 3 evenings a week on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays where you can find traditional thai delicacies and mingle with the locals. If you want to collect some souvenirs for friends back home why not head to the famous Hua Hin night market that stretches across two streets and test out your bartering skills.
Wildlife in the wild - National Parks
At WFFT we are surrounded by one of Thailand’s largest national parks which is home to many of the incredible species indigenous to Thailand. Wake up early and Trek through the jungle trails at Kaeng Krachan national park in search of wildlife and waterfalls or take a more relaxing day and drive through KuiBuri National Park with a ranger. You have one of the best chances of seeing elephants in the wild in Thailand as well as enjoying the beautiful scenery of unspoiled Thai forests.
Vana Nava or Black Mountain Water Parks - Hua Hin
Asia’s first water jungle encourages over 200,000 living species to grow around its tropical jungle of 19 exciting rides and slides with fun for all of the family. The lazy river and infinity bar offer a nice area to relax and enjoy a cocktail or two before heading to the wave pool at the base of the tallest manmade mountain waterfall in Thailand.
Bat Caves at Sunset
About 5 kilometers outside of our local town Cha-Am you will find a beautiful forested mountain with a large hidden bat cave, from where more than 10 million bats take flight. This spectacle starts every night with the bats flying out in a stream directly above you in the beautiful red sunset of Thailand.
