Hotel Experiences

Lovers of Thai food can immerse themselves in the local cuisine at the interactive Spice Spoons cooking class. The all-encompassing experience begins with a visit to a local market and a temple breakfast picnic. Back at the resort, there's a tour of the herb and vegetable garden, followed by tutorials on Thai ingredients, their varying flavours and the health benefits they bring. Finally, cook your own fragrant favourites, from Thai fishcakes to spicy coconut soup, before savouring your creations for lunch. Offering another unique experience, the new Jungle Bubbles invite you to spend an unforgettable night observing Thailand's majestic elephants in their natural habitat, from the comfort of a fully-furnished, air-conditioned and completely transparent bubble.


Wildlife Encounters

A stay at Anantara Golden Triangle is all about the group of rescued elephants that call the camp home. When you arrive, a gong will be sounded to let the elephants know you've arrived, while there are a range of once-in-a-lifetime activities to help you really get close to the gentle giants. You can stroll alongside them and watch them bathe in the river on the 'Walking with Giants' experience, or learn more about the incredible animals, their biology and conservation with the ELE Elephant Learning Experience. You can also enjoy a gourmet picnic accompanied by elephants, or they can greet you at the banks of the Mekong River for a true VIP arrival to the resort.


Romance

The resort's dreamlike setting, unique animal interactions, outstanding food, decadent spa treatments and warm Thai hospitality all combine to make this an intensely romantic destination. After a leisurely breakfast and a morning with the elephants, couples can retreat to their well-appointed rooms, rest on their elegant daybed and luxuriate in the tranquil environment. For an intensely relaxing shared spa experience, an afternoon couples massage is recommended, before savouring delicious Thai delicacies and traditional music by candlelight.


Spa & Wellness

The terrazzo and teakwood suites of the spa, set above the verdant Thai jungle, provide the idyllic sanctuary for a spa retreat. Ancient Thai remedies alongside pioneering treatments from across the globe provide both tranquility and rejuvenation. The spa's 'Balance Wellness' concept provides a flexible approach to health while on holiday. Whatever your focus, be it weight loss, de-stressing or anti-ageing, specific programmes can be tailored to include nutrition, classes, wellness seminars and healing therapies. Visiting wellness masters, handpicked by Anantara, offer private healing sessions.


Culture & History

The Golden Triangle offers a rare medley of ethnic influences, combining cultural, historical and gastronomic features from Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. The diversity of people and cultures in such a relatively small area is revealed in a guided Three Country Tour by Royal Enfield Sidecar, while visits can also be made to the nearby Opium Museum to discover the region's darker shades of history. After exploring local temples, the day can be ended in style by hopping on a cruise down the Mekong River on a longtail boat.
