We do not usually write on forums but this place is an exception! My Wife and I have been planning to come for here for a while now. The moment we got here we were treated like royals. We were picked up at the airport, the vehicle had some snacks and drinking water for us to enjoy the ride.

Whilst we were checking in we were told about all of our activities and itinerary over the next days whilst getting a mini massage! Throughout the stay we had lovely spa massages and enjoyed our once in a life time experience with the elephants. We tried the Italian and Thai food available and both were absolutely delicious. The homemade passionfruit jam was to die for!

The staff were amazing. All of those that we encountered throughout the hotel were smiling, greeted us and asked us how we were today, we felt like we were at our home. A special mention to one of the managers Mark who met us at breakfast and checked how our stay was going on a daily basis.

This place is a dream come true. Thank you for the best holiday ever!

Let your stress melt away.

This is our second time at this resort. We had a fantastic time five years ago and decided to return with our youngest daughter.

The hotel is infinitely picturesque. The views from the room balcony overlook the nations of Myanmar and Laos and of course Thailand. Some mornings, when the clouds are low over the Laos mountains, the word beauty becomes an understatement.

The rooms are good with a nice huge bath. The highlight is the balcony with its stunning views. A really nice place to lounge.

Food at the resort is a tad limited but above average. We stuck to the Thai food though the girls enjoyed their pizza meals.

Service staff are attentive and friendly without overdoing it and were generally helpful.

Another highlight is the Elephant camp. This is a sanctuary for elephants and the kids were allowed to feed the elephants, which they really enjoyed.

This is well worth a stay at least once.

(Will update pics asap.)

Excellent Stay!

We just finished a two night stay at the resort. From start to finish it was an absolutely incredible experience. From the picturesque scenery, the top notch service, the well appointed rooms, the delicious assortment of food, to the unique excursions. Everything about the stay was incredible. A very memorable experience for our family. Most notable were Tuk who coordinated our stay. She truly is great at customer service. So helpful and accommodating. Also, Wee our tour guide for the Golden Triangle tour was the best guide we have had on the many trips we have done. He is knowledgeable, entertaining and very patient! In addition, Boon, our driver for the excursions and transfers was terrific. I have done many vacations and stayed at some amazing places and I have never done a review. The Anantara Golden Triangke Resort is definitely not to be missed if you are heading to Thailand.

A most extraordinary experience! The setting, the hospitality, the food and most especially the Elephants! The trip of a lifetime!!

Food was top notch. The service was impeccable. The rooms were beautiful. The river experience is not to be missed. The Walk with Giants was incredible. To see the different personalities of each elephant. A tropical paradise!!!!

Wonderful, Amazing and Unforgettable Memories

I had family trip here. To be honest, this was really amazing place even I arrive late night but the service is the best of the best (as always)

We spent most of the time in the resort which you can't even imagine how big it's. Even it's hot at those time we were there but it' wasn't really a problem for us.

My room was super cool especially when you woke up with the morning fog, elephants parade with Mahouts and the sunrise just in front of your eyes just like a painting picture from website but it's touchable and realistic at those moment.

So many activities to do in this resorts and it's not so far from Golden Triangle and all those market. You also have the selections of day trip or elephant adventure (suggest to try as they freely let elephants and well treated)

I can feel it will be much more special during the end / beginning of the year with the weather. Sure! I will turn back their again.

Note: Staff was super nice, politely and helpful. They do remember your room number and make belated birthday cake for my boyfriend as well.
