Elephant & Four Wise Men
Ramnagar, Neil Island
About the hotel
Elephant & Four Wise Men really is a special shanti place. Their name is derived from a Russian painting and is also their symbol. Set behind a herbal field, just off the main road in Ramnagar, you will find this resort with ten fairytale bamboo huts dotted among the palm shade.
Huts are made out of eco-friendly natural materials and colorful ambient lights give the place a special touch. One can chose between a hut with a sandy floor and lifted bed or a hut with bed on the natural floor lifted from the ground. All huts are equipped with electricity, mosquito net and a small porch in front. Bathrooms are shared, with no hot water. The huts are rather small but good for the price. Sleeping underneath a natural roof is special; no fans are necessary due to the airiness of the place.
Prices are fixed and non negotiable, during low season the place is closed.
There is a common space in front of the small restaurant, with pillows, swings and hammocks where guests gather to enjoy the pleasant evenings. Sometimes they organize movie screenings in the open garden.
The small restaurant here serves delicious food from international to Indian flavored bites though portions are small. They don’t sell plastic bottles but do have filter water.
The beach is about 150m away, but if you fancy a good swim, beach No. 3 is a 10 minute walk away. The place has a special vibe, very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It is truly the perfect place for escaping reality and the hustle of everyday life to enjoy the true serenity Neil has to offer.
