About Hotel Elephant Safari Park Lodge

The Hotel Elephant Safari Park Lodge is not a hotel, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience - or more if you are lucky. In the depths of the Elephant Safari Park in Taro, Bali, guests can watch, ride and feed 30 endangered Sumatran elephants.

The 25 en-suite rooms and suites have balconies with views over the stunning grounds and, of course, the elephants. Equipped with timber “elephant footed” canvas beds, the rooms are all decorated in an elephant theme.

Once at the Hotel Elephant Safari Park Lodge, guests can embark on elephant safaris, work out in the gym, take a massage or treat themselves to a spa treatment.

Buffet diners and fine-dining is available on site, with a gourmet breakfast included in the Lakeside restaurant, where the elephants can be watched bathing.

White-water rafting, kayaking, trekking or mountain-biking can be arranged locally. The lodge is 42 km away from Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Positive Reviews

And the star of the show is...

Not surprisingly, the thing that most guests love about their stay here is the elephants!  Washing or swimming with them is the most thrilling activity, followed closely by being picked up for breakfast or dinner on an elephant from the bedrooms.  Many guests comment on how well the elephants are treated and loved by their trainers and how happy they seem to be.

Beautiful site

Apart from the elephants, guests raved about how beautiful the hotel is and the site in general. The rooms are clean and the surroundings exceptional.

Staff offer a 5-star service

The staff play a good supporting role to the elephants in making guests' stay so memorable. They are friendly and welcoming and offer a top class service.

Negative Reviews

Hotel exploits its isolated location

The good thing about the Elephant Safari Park Lodge is that it is in the middle of nowhere. The bad thing is that it is in the middle of nowhere. You can't go out for a meal or a drink in another restaurant or bar because there aren't any for a long way. Many guests feel the hotel exploits this as much as possible with very expensive prices for food and drinks. Transfers arranged by the hotel, for example, are also thought to be several times the amount charged by other firms.

Hard beds

A few guests found that the beds were too hard. Maybe it is a personal preference, but it did surface a few times to suggest it could be an issue.

Be careful of added extras

The room rate often includes very little, just feeding and patting elephants. Some guests draw attention to the fact that other activities and safaris need to be added on top, hiking up the overall price.
