Chai Lai Cabin #4 is a large room with 2-3 beds, a sofa, and small dining table, private balcony outdoor seating area. The room features high ceilings, and most importantly great air-conditioning. This room is located at an elephant camp on the river. The property is owned Plern Malee and managed by Chai Lai Orchid. The Chai Lai Orchid is a social business that funds Karen women's empowerment programs and anti trafficking initiatives.
Here you can spend your days interacting with elephants — playing, feeding, and bathing them. Cool off with an afternoon swim in a fresh mountain water pool. 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.
Interaction with guests
We are here everyday running the training program for Daughters Rising and the Chai Lai Orchid and we have a great staff of trainees from the Karen and Kayah hill tribes who welcome you and make you feel at home in the jungle.
Elephants are powerful wild animals. In the interest of safety please only approach an elephant when accompanied by a mahout.
Smoking: is allowed in outdoor spaces but not inside the rooms. We ask that you help take care of our little slice of paradise by placing trash in the proper receptacles and cigarettes in designated ashtrays.

We are the Chai Lai Orchid team and we are happy to welcome you to our home <3
We live at an elephant camp and is also a safe home for refugee and ethnic minority women. It serves as a vocational training program where staff are paid to learn hospitality and also taught to be mentors and leaders in their own communities. Proceeds from the eco lodge fund Daughters Rising.
Our style of hosting is to treat guests like family so they can explore the real amazing and beautiful Thailand, beyond the typical tourist experience.
