Remarkable Tours – Meet the elephants
Here at Elephant Hills, we offer a unique experience for those who wish to add something extra special to their trip. Explore the rainforest with one of our expert local guides, find hidden caves while kayaking on our spectacular lake, and experience our ethical, award-winning elephant park.

If you choose to book our 3-day Jungle Lake Safari, your second night will be spent at Rainforest Camp, luxury tents sitting above the lake itself. Enjoy a romantic evening on your private porch, with spectacular uninterrupted views of the stars above.
At Elephant Hills, your romantic honeymoon will truly be the trip of a lifetime, that’s why we hold a Trip Advisor Hall of Fame Award and were featured in their latest Travellers’ Choice Award for Romance.

In the rainforest the only people who matter are you and your new spouse. From the moment you arrive you’ll be made to feel at home, and each day that follows, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure awaits.

Unique Honeymoon Accommodation: Luxury Glamping

We have gone the extra mile to create the ultimate romantic honeymoon destination, and nothing escapes our attention. Our guests love the effort we have gone to in order to build something totally unique – even our light switches are elephant-shaped!
Imagine lying in a luxurious bed at night, surrounded by one of the world’s oldest rainforests, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the jungle. Instead of annoying alarm clocks, you’re woken by the various songs of exotic birds, welcoming the new day. What a way to celebrate the start of your marriage together.
Even though we are tucked away in the rainforest, your honeymoon in Thailand won’t be complicated. You can reach us easily from popular beach destinations such as Phuket, Khao Lak, Krabi and Koh Samui. To make your stay as stress-free as possible, we include transfers from these destinations in our honeymoon package.
What former Thailand honeymooners say
There’s a reason we were voted one of the top 15 most romantic hotels in Thailand on
TripAdvisor: fantastic reviews from couples. But don’t take our word for it – here are a few testimonials from visitors who found their newlyweds’ paradise in Khao Sok National Park:
“We visited Elephant Hills at the end of our honeymoon, and what a perfect ending to our trip it was. The tented camp was nothing like a normal tent we have experienced, it’s luxury in the rainforest. The food served was tasty and lots of variety. And the star of the show. the elephants.
You get to wash, prepare food and feed them whilst the staff help and tell you about each elephant.
It was an experience we will never forget.” – Ellie, UK
“We booked this for part of our honeymoon trip in Thailand… When I saw the 3 day, 2 night tour which is built around responsible eco-tourism, I knew we had to go… The Elephant experience on day one was amazing enough, then the next day we transferred to the floating lake camp and wow
– this place is breath taking! You are able to either join the group on a hike (we opted not to as the lake was so stunning and
we’d also been travelling quite a lot in the days leading up to this), or spend your own time chilling with a glass of wine, swimming in the lake or even taking your own kayak out for a row around the lake… If you are toying with the idea of booking but not sure about the price, just do it….you won’t regret it!” –
“ Amazing stay!! We will highly recommend this experience to everyone we know.. From the welcome the amazing staff give you when you arrive to Elephant Hills to the food that’s included in your stay.. from the Kayak experience down the river to the bonding and loving first hand experience you get to give the elephants.. to the Long boat tour through Khao Sok National Park on the lake and the special feeling of staying on the lake.. it was truely
awe-inspiring!! I will remember this special place for the rest of my life!” – Amelia, Australia
“If your thinking of going to see elephants whist in Thailand book Elephant Hills straight away. It’s such an amazing place, the staff can’t do enough for you. (our tour guide was Banana and she was awesome really made the trip for us and many of the other guests) the food was brilliant! Thai cuisine, with some “international” dishes available also. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, you really won’t believe this place exists it’s that good! And the Elephants all looked really healthy, happy and well treated which is rare to find. You don’t ride the elephants here you prepare the food and feed them, then watch them bath in the lake and wash them down after. Get it booked you will not regret it!” – Jonny
