I arrived there quite late and the stars are amazing there, you see double the amount in any other city. My tuktuk driver was shocked at a statue by the side of the road of a life sized elephant, then he told me later that there are real wild elephants there and males have attacked people before. The hotel reassured me this does not happen near the hotel and that they have their own trails. The room was quite amazing and comfy. Equipped with satellite TV Minibar and a small private swimming pool. I had my dinner served in the room which was quite amazing. In the morning you can see many birds and small animals hanging around the resort (monkeys, lizards and squirrels). The pool was a bit deserted but still nice. Food was OK. You can use the bikes for free to drive around the hotel and the park. For a TukTuk to the rock you pay about 5 USD/one way.
