Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in Chiang Rai, Thailand

You might have company when you settle in for your morning cup of coffee at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort. Here elephants take center stage, and your luxurious digs are in the midst of their natural habitat at the convergence of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. Anantara paired with a traditional mahout village that works alongside the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, which performs street rescues, provides employment and gives more than 25 elephants and 60 people a comfortable living. That means the once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll get by interacting with these gentle creatures is life changing for them, too.

Learn the basics of elephant command from a skilled mahout, whose strong bond with his animal is based on a language of verbal cues and light touches behind the ear. Take a ride through nature trails through indigenous forest and guide your new friend to a bathing ritual in the river. Have a rewarding soak of your own in the infinity pool overlooking the tree canopy leading to the Mekong River. Savor a private meal at Baby Elephant Camp, followed by a cup of the world’s most rare and expensive coffee (which also involves elephants in its production).

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 days ago

My husband and I stayed here for my 60th birthday. The resort was just beautiful. The breakfast spread was absolutely amazing. Our dinner was delicious. But better than all of that were the people at the resort. Unfortunately my husband was taken ill and had to go to the hospital. Mr. Kitty stayed with my husband all day to interpret for him so he wouldn't be alone in a foreign country not understanding the language. My husband said he was a godsend. Ms Anne at the resort kept up with my husband's progress and was very concerned about his well-being. I don't know what we would have done without Mr Kitty and Ms Anne's invaluable assistance. Any place can perform when things go good but it's when things go awry that really make a hotel's personnel shine.

We just returned from family holiday. We have been to Thailand many times but first time in Chiang Rai. This is the beautiful resort. Nice atmosphere. Food generally good. Staffs were always helpful and accommodating, friendly and warm.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights before moving to Doi Tung for another 2 nights. The hotel is located exactly at golden triangle where we can see Laos and Myanmar so it’s very unique. The hotel offers a number of interesting activities such as rice plantation in rice field, elephant trekking etc. Like other Anantara properties, the view at the main restaurant where they serve breakfast is stunning. Every morning, an elephant (called Yingluck) comes to greet the guests at the restaurant. She is very cute and clever. I really enjoyed feeding her bananas. This place is very far from the city but travelers can enjoy tranquility here. Opposite of this place is opium museum where I highly recommend travelers to visit. It’s very very nice museum. We can spend half - one day at this place. There is free shuttle from the museum to the hotel (museum shuttle). Local food at Chiang Khong is also very nice. The hotel offers free shuttle between Golden Triangle market and the hotel.

Firstly, amazing opportunity to spend time with some wonderful gentle giants. To be able to walk with and bare back ride these phenomenal creatures is an experience we will never forget. The animals are happy and well looked after by dedicated Mahouts. Secondly, possibly the best service we have ever received at a hotel. NOTHING was too much trouble, the smiles of the staff were genuine and the attention to detail outstanding. Finally, food is great, all inclusive package good value for money and the massage terrific Well done Anantara - Until the next time !
