Another Amazing Visit
Reviewed 2 days ago

I just recently completed my third visit to Anantara Golden Triangle. It is a magical place with extraordinary staff, food, and activities that include your choices of wonderful experiences with elephants, a beautiful fitness facility, spa, cooking class, beautiful grounds to explore, a swimming pool with a view to take your breath away, trips to surrounding sites. It is truly a place that must be seen and experienced because I am always left speechless when I try to put into word the joy I always feel when I'm there.

Great stay

The Best Isolate Resort in Chiang Rai
Reviewed 1 week ago

If you are looking for the place for the relaxing and feeling of luxurious. This is the most recommended resort in Chiang Saen, Chaing Rai. All the staffs are well-trained, informative, friendly and nice talk. Special thanks to Khun Tuk, Net, Mew as well as Singh for your hospitality :).

Thank you to Aom, Tuk, Jack and all the staff for making us so welcome.

My daughter arrived unwell at the resort. Tuk helped my daughter to our beautiful room and looked after her until I got there. Aom and a driver took us to the hospital. Aom stayed with us the whole time, some two and half hours, translated what the local doctor had to say. Also the staff were extremely caring. While my daughter was recovering Jack & Tuk made recommendations of what food would help my daughter feel better. We enjoyed the delicious food and I enjoyed some of the wines. The views were beautiful and it was relaxing to be by the swimming pool. Had an amazing time with the elephants, can’t wait to return, I also liked the local museum and river views.

A fabulous experience
Reviewed 1 month ago

We stayed at the Anantara Golden Triangle for five nights and had a really enjoyable experience. The interaction with the elephants was nice but actually everything about the hotel was exemplary, the food, the room, the view, and most of all the service.

Whilst I would love to name each individual member of staff to thank them for having made our stay more enjoyable there's too many because it was everyone! Everyone was attentive, helpful and always with a smile, the staff in the restaurant, housekeeping, the bar, even the chef provided personal attention.

I was concerned with all inclusive for 5 nights that I would get bored of the food but there was a lot of choice, and the food was to a very high standard, lovingly prepared and beautifully presented. Whilst we didn't need to repeat dishes some things were just too delicious not to have again!

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for a peaceful and relaxing sanctuary not only for the elephants but for us humans escaping the noise and stress of the city.
