Imagine being in a tree house, perched atop the tallest tree overlooking the scenery beyond. Now, imagine you’re in Thailand overlooking the Ruak River, mountains and jungles that span across three countries. Combine that with Four Seasons hospitality and service and you’re at their luxury Tented Camp Golden Triangle in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
Secluded and luxurious, the Golden Triangle is only reached by a boat ride on the Ruak River. Once arriving, explore your personal tent adorned with spectacular design and décor influenced by Northern Thailand. Each of the 15 luxury tents scattered in the trees is a unique experience. Each Deluxe Tent has a wooden hot tub on your private deck overlooking the Ruak. For a larger splash, the two-bedroom Safari Lodge has a private infinity pool and a lamp-lit veranda for private evenings.
A trip to Thailand would be incomplete without exploring its natural beauty. Luckily, the Golden Triangle is well-prepared to show you its awesome surroundings. The camp has its own elephant sanctuary where you can feed, bathe and walk with them. In their natural jungle habitat, these gentle giants are accustomed to visitors and welcome your company. Another option is to enjoy an evening with the elephants during a candlelit dinner accompanied by traditional Thai musicians. Or, wake up early and watch the sun rise from behind Laos’ mountains and join in a morning elephant bathing ritual.
The Golden Triangle offers many options for activities on-site, guided excursions to nearby markets and pagodas and visits to local communities. At the end of the day, stop by the outdoor spa situated in a bamboo forest. One specialty of this spa is its use of natural herbs and plants from the surrounding area in its treatments.
Perched in the treetops overlooking Burma, Laos and Thailand, you won’t want to leave, and with a motto “we can arrange virtually anything,” the Golden Triangle will only exceed your expectations
