Excellent facility and seems like elephants are treated well and have plenty of room to roam free. This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip and strongly suggest going here!

Good question and one that is not easy to answer. In general most places are open during Songkran because it is high season. But in Thailand anything can happen, It would be best to contact them directly.
