Stay at the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand
Experience the exotic bamboo forests of Southeast Asia. Unwind at a retreat nostalgic in its search for tented luxury. Your entrance by boat along the Ruak River sets the tone for adventure. Upon your arrival, absorb the dreamy landscapes of your new jungle home.Get up close and personal with rehabilitated elephants, the first of many encounters. Watch the sunrise mid-meditation, atop Camp Peak. Rainforest-set massages soothe the aches of morning hikes. Tropical birdsong narrates as you complete indulgence with a bath. Then come cocktails and romantic dinners out on your viewing deck, adorned with a mural of Myanmar and Laos in the distance.
Found in the northernmost folds of Thailand, the tented resort enjoys a secluded hillside location. Nature and wildlife excursions are bountiful. Meanwhile, the journey over involves a 90-minute drive from Chiang Rai Airport, followed by a scenic 10-minute boat ride.
A safari adventure theme dominates the camp, which is composed of 15 generously spaced luxury tents. Each has air-conditioning, alongside handmade leather furnishings, standalone tubs and vintage decor. Some come with private wooden hot tubs. Finally, there’s the Explorer’s Lodge, a 6-person abode with pool perfect for large groups.
Who is it for
The isolated, back-to-nature vibe here is befitting of couples and adult guests. That, and the fact that children under 10 aren’t permitted. Therefore, those travelling with little ones will prefer a more family-friendly base.
Amenities & Activities
Service is exceptionally intimate, with facilities such as a dramatic open-air spa. While there’s no gym, outdoor activities like morning hikes and yoga mean this is hardly missed. Dining is just as intrepid. Beside a thatched-roof restaurant and bar, guests can enjoy private picnics, candlelit dinners and daily cheese and wine tastings.
