Chiang Rai, Thailand
There aren’t many five-stars resorts in the world where you can expect to be greeted by a baby elephant while relaxing on your veranda. But then, this is no ordinary resort. Set on a hillside above the Mekong Valley, with wide-ranging views over the jungle-draped hills of the Lao-Myanmar border, Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has 30 resident elephants, rescued primarily from illegal logging camps, the street or elephant shows.
And for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity the resort is now offering guests the opportunity to spend the night in one of its two Jungle Bubbles. Perched on raised wooden decks, the luxurious bubbles offer an immersive experience, and the opportunity to witness these majestic animals in their natural habitat, without having to compromise on any comforts.
