Following a relaxing sleep, guests can wake to views of the verdant hills shrouded in mist and take coffee listening to the sounds of the jungle, before indulging in a delicious breakfast. The rest of their day can be filled with a series of daily activities, where guests have the opportunity to take part in a number of engaging Discovery Experiences. Whether they choose to visit the on-site elephant camp, designed as a traditional mahout village, join the Anantara Cooking School to immerse themselves in flavoursome Thai cuisine, or prefer to be pampered at the Anantara Spa, they are guaranteed to embark on an enriching Thai experience. From incredible wildlife encounters and interactive cooking at Spice Spoons, to cultural guided tours to the nearby Opium Museum, the Golden Triangle and Anantara provide a wonderful journey of discovery.

It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all ages.
