Located about one hour from Chiang Mai, the Chai Lai Orchid has two idyllic properties. Live with elephants in our nature retreat featuring riverside bungalows, surrounded by lush tropical forest, or wake up with elephants above the clouds in a peaceful mountain retreat with stunning panoramic valley views from the top of the mountain. Both locations offer our signature Elephant wake-up call!
Live with elephants beside the beautiful Mae Wang river. Chai Lai Orchid River Eco Lodge is the base camp for our jungle treks and ethical elephant adventures. This riverside location features individual bungalows, on-site restaurant and private grounds that are home to a family of Asian elephants.
