We had a Junior Suite which was situated near the front desk. The hotel is not on the beach, but on the river or 'backwater'. This means mozzies so bring your repellent! The rooms are all little huts with a path and gardens running up the centre of them, and down to the river. Our room had air-con and the...

Traveled as a big family and stayed in Les 3 elephants. Everything was wonderful about this place and good value for money Rooms: 4.5/5 Aesthetically done, all rooms have view of backwater from the front porch. However the rooms are small and if you want a extra bed call ahead first and tell them so they can hold the room...

We spent one night at Les 3 Elephants. The setting is lovely, right next to the backwaters and a few minutes walk from the beach and the cottages are luxurious and very comfortable. I absolutely love the reception area, especially at night where they have fairy lights everywhere and it looks really cute. The staff were all very nice and...

This place 'could' be lovely however there are a few aspects that seriously detract from the overall experience. The good: Nice, green setting; clean bungalows; great food; helpful staff; lovely, quiet location in between the backwaters and the ocean. The not so good: Mega amounts of trash floats by almost constantly in the waterway in front of the property; the...

Stayed here with my friend during September. Learnt September is off season and the place was desolate.

Dear Guest, I am sorry you didn't enjoy our property as you wished. I have to admit there are less tourists in off season, and more tourists in pic touristic season. I also have to admit that our backwater eco resort is on backwater side. Please, next time you book an hotel, please check website first, instead of doing bad...

Dear Guest, Our place is an eco-friendly resort. We don't kill lezards which are harmless and very useful to eat mosquitoes. I am really sorry you have a phobia. I advise you, for your next trip to book in our other hotel, Le petit Elephant which is a more regular hotel, more far from nature. Respectfully,
