We came back for our one year anniversary after spending our honeymoon there. It was nice but now realize it's not worth going back for. The breakfast was good but was near identical to the year before, so that was disappointing.

Wife and I recently stayed here. Everything was terrific! The whole building was decorated with wonderful items from Southeast Asia. Our room specifically, the Chiang Mai, was outfitted to the 9s with wonderful decorations and we had to take photos of everything. The merchandise downstairs was all very reasonably priced. The staff were fantastic, both in conversation and with service. We even got our flat tire addressed! Above and beyond. We hope to come back for all anniversaries in the foreseeable future.

Our one night at The Elephant Walk felt like sheer luxury - from the welcome of the hostess and the beautiful wine and cheese tray she served us, to the elegant breakfast we enjoyed the next morning. The attention to detail, from the gardens, interior decor, to personal comfort lifted this experience beyond the ordinary.

We stayed in the Raffles room at Elephant Walk to celebrate our first anniversary. Other couples were also celebrating. Rita remembered everyone's name and what they were celebrating, congratulating each in turn. She was a wonderful hostess and made amazing food for the three course breakfasts we enjoyed. She also made some good recommendations for places to eat in town. Mike was fun to chat with, especially if you enjoy tinkering and bikes - he built the tandem that sits outside! The room was tidy and clean with a great whirlpool tub, fireplace, and a fish tank. Chocolate, wine, and snacks are included and are a lovely touch. We would definitely recommend!

I booked rooms for friends and received excellent customer service in terms of communications to make sure that they were comfortable. I also toured the beautiful rooms stuffed with gorgeous Thai antiques and a gift shop. I will be back to stay myself.
