WELCOME TO SAPPRAIWAN
ELEPHANT RESORT & SANCTUARY
We invite you to step into our secret jungle, where you will enjoy an intimate experience within our elephant's natural habitat. The resort’s 360 acres (900 rai or 145 hectares) of jungle is located in a mountainous region of lower northern Thailand, providing the perfect location for travelers to explore nature while relaxing in comfort.
Spend a day in the jungle then return to your chalet for a cool splash in the pool, an afternoon tea or the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the resort's array of resident wildlife.
WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING
“I was surprised when I saw the elephants because I was never physically close to an elephant before and now I feel like I am part of an elephant family. It's amazing when I saw the baby elephants run pass me, they look so happy."
- Pla Sareeyapon, Thailand
"My stay at Sappraiwan was magical! I walked with a family of elephants through the jungle and watched up-close as they ate, played and fed babies. The magic extended to my hotel room, which felt like a treehouse full of light and very airy. The big swimming pool was an added plus. And the food was divine!"
- Laura Carroll, USA
"I am thankful that my first visit to Thailand was to Sappraiwan in Phitsanulok. The resort offered a relaxed and comfortable environment for travelers. The friendly and knowledgeable staff taught us how intelligent and family-oriented elephants are, and also showed us ways to communicate with them."
