Located in Uthai Thani. Uthai Thani, known in ancient times as "Muang Chang" or "City of Elephant" was an important crossroads during ancient wartimes. While the wars brought prosperity and commerce from the Northern regions into the South, they also left the city in ruins. "Iyara" an ancient Thai word for elephant, reflects the rich history of the area, which is recaptured in the architecture and decor of the resort. A two-hour drive from Bangkok International Airport, Iyara Park's modern accommodations and amenities blend with ancient Thai style. This luxurious five-star hotel and resort boasts 400 guest rooms and spacious convention areas. Ten years in the making, the resort and grounds span 250 beautifully landscaped acres.
