Encompassing Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, the Golden Triangle has been long been a mysterious and untravelled area. But no longer – at Anantara Golden Triangle in the most northern province of Chiang Rai in Thailand, imagine a place of pure luxury, a resort where you can experience an elephant drive at sunset and relax at the end of the day in five-star surroundings.
The rooms combine local traditions and contemporary accents with Thai silk, regional cottons and teakwood floors creating a relaxed, comfortable feel. Guests can either stay in one of the charming rooms or in the spacious suites, which command stunning views of the lush countryside.
The Anantara Spa provides a truly relaxing and revitalising experience. With just five luxurious teakwood rooms with a private in-suite shower, each treatment offers a truly exquisite escape from city life. The pool is worth shouting about as well – just take a look at that view!
The hotel is possibly best-known for its elephant camp, which offers you the unique opportunity to get close up and personal with the 30 gentle giants. You can interact with the herd either by elephant driving, trekking or bathing and wannabe mahouts should take advantage of the hotel’s ‘Mahout Discovery’ package – learn how to feed, bathe and ride these animals over the course of three amazing days.
Currently, Anantara’s six Thai resorts are offering amazing rates as part of the ‘Sawasdee! We’ve Missed You…’ promotion, reducing the prices of their best available room only rates by up to 40% – imagine five-star luxury for as little as THB 3,060 (HKD 740) per room per night! This special escape rate includes a daily breakfast buffet, 20% off all food and beverages at the resort and late check-out till 4pm.
