Sleep With The Elephants In Thailand
The lush mountains and jungles of Northern Thailand are home to hill tribes and animals in their natural habitat, and perched high in the wonderland of Chiang Saen, overlooking the border with Myanmar and Laos, is the luxurious Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort, encompassed by breathtaking scenery and inhabited by a herd of native elephants.
This magical retreat has taken its 5-star status to epic new heights, installing two transparent Jungle Bubbles elevated on wooden decks above the forest.
A ‘world first', the Jungle Bubbles offer unique overnight accommodation with all the luxuries you would expect of a top-notch resort - king-size bed with crisp white linen and feather pillows, enclosed en-suite, living space and seating area, bathrobes, slippers, bathroom amenities and tea and coffee. There is also a fully stocked mini-bar and 24-hour room service. But what sets these pods apart is the transparent dome that allows for uninterrupted views of the spectacular surrounds, so you can watch elephants right roaming calmy in their natural habitat and see the stars in the night sky all from your comfy room. Genius!
Well known for its award-winning Elephant Camp and the conservation of these majestic animals, the resort is the perfect place to play and bond with these beloved creatures while supporting their welfare. They also offer elephant sponsorships and activities including an elephant walk and yoga, elephant picnic and elephant sunset walk, where you are accompanied by elephants - they are not ridden.
Another of their exclusive experiences is the serving of rare Black Ivory Coffee, made from beans meticulously retrieved from elephant dung, and served in an antique French coffee machine.
The immersive Jungle Bubble escape is an optional overnight extra in addition to hotel accommodation. Prices start at THB 17,700 (app. $848 AUD) per night for two people.
