Woman startled by unexpected guest at luxury hotel: 'He comes & goes in peace'

A friendly elephant was filmed patrolling the halls of a luxury hotel in Sri Lanka .

By a hotel guest who seemed enthralled by the massive creature's presence.

Footage of the unexpected visitor was captured by a woman staying at Jetwing Yala.

A 5-star resort in the city of Palatupana, located in Sri Lanka's southern province.

The woman's daughter later shared her mother's footage on Twitter, where it has since been viewed over 7.3M times.

The owners of Jetwing Yala explained that they're familiar with this particular elephant, named Natta Kota.

"He comes & goes in peace, takes naps & 'steals' food from the kitchens," she explained.

"He’s free and gentle and well loved by the staff".

Sri Lankan elephants are currently categorized as an endangered species by the World Wildlife Organization.

According to the non-profit, these elephants have been forced into smaller habitats by deforestation and land development
