We stayed at the Elephant Corridor Hotel for 5 nights as our base for the Cultural Triangle area. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The upgrade to the "romantic suite" was very worthwhile. It was a huge three room cottage with a good size plunge pool in the bedroom. The water looked very clean. The grounds are very...

Being in the middle of the nature, this resort is very quiet and peaceful. Welcoming and smiling staff, they were all very kind. However, the staff in the restaurant still need to be trained (not well organized). Breakfast was very nice. Diner was not amazing (although there is a good value for money, we would recommend having diner outside). Rooms...

Had an absolutely amazing time here! Friendly staff and a really calming environment. The food was delicious, make sure to try the banana bread! Particularly enjoyed the great views and nature when bike riding. Went away feeling energized and relaxed and would definitely recommend the place to friends.

I truly loved this very special place.... The atmosphere is unique. Being in the middle of nature while simultaneously benefitting from luxurious accommodation, gourmet food and the warm advice of the wonderfully welcoming staff... Such a heaven of peace that I felt really sad to leave and hope to get the opportunity to travel back there soon!!

Promoted as an idyllic romantic secluded resort and long ago it may have had aspirations to achieve that. Now its just expensive and run down. The rooms are large but poorly furnished with spartan furniture that is uninviting and uncomfortable. The pool is very nice, but is 500m down a hot dusty track to get to. The Spa is further...

It's difficult to fully express the level of disappointment that this place generated. I selected this based on the location, amenities etc and if I'm honest, partially because the price was "reassuringly expensive". Unfortunately the disappointment began before we even got there. I booked using booking.com. When my free cancellation period was over, I was informed by the hotel that...

We too encountered the system error and they tried to put us in a 2star hotel for the 1st night. I wasn't happy that the manager spoke to my driver instead of me. After I showed them what I paid, they managed to find a beautiful 5Star replacement that we wished the error had been for both nights. I have...

I wouldn't know where to start this hotel was so incredibly bad...... the customer service here is just horrendous. Getting coffee with breakfast seemed like a difficult task for staff. We attended their 'new years eve' dinner ...which was outdoors and all seemed lovely.... the 'ran out' of the least expensive wine at the beginning of the night but yet...
