Highs & Lows

  • Arriving by boat after your airport pickup, to be greeted by elephants starts the trip off on a high note.

  • Sunset hour at The Burma Bar can’t be any more magical.

  • Don’t miss the morning feeding of baby elephants. They bring them to breakfast and you can feed them bananas!

  • The Spa is just a lofted room in the jungle so you can get your massage as the tropical birds are chirping amongst the foliage.

  • Might be hard to fall asleep with elephant trumpeting at night.

  • No gym or active experiences on the premises, though the walk to/from your tent may be a workout on it’s own.
