Experience jungle life in this thatched roof stone and bamboo bungalow with fan and elephant views. Great for couples or solo travelers. En-suite bathroom. By choosing The Chai Lai Orchid eco-lodge, you are helping us to rescue 11 elephants, including 4 babies. We offer kind elephant experiences including baths, bare backing riding and lots of bananas! You can book day trips or stay overnight.
Beautiful and cozy little freestanding huts offer the ultimate private mountain experience. The huts feature traditional grass roofs, queen-size beds, mini-bars, mosquito nets, fans, and private outdoor space.
Here you can spend your days interacting with elephants — playing, feeding, and bathing them. Ride down the river in a bamboo raft, or simply float away in a tube without a care in the world. Go trekking on endless trails that lead to secret waterfalls, beautiful vistas, Hill Tribe villages and hidden spots unreachable by car. And at the end of the day, come gather around the fire pit (in the winter) while gazing at a sky full of stars.
Price includes breakfast in our cafe which is open everyday from 730 am to 9pm.
