How to Get There

Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp Resort All Inclusive
229 Moo 1 T Wiang
Chiang Saen, 57150 Thailand


Cuisine, Service and Walking with Giants

I cannot recommend the Anantara Golden Triangle enough.
Out of all the hotels and destinations I have visited in the past 50 years this is in my top 3.
Whilst it was an All Inclusive package, which we normally avoid, the breakfasts, lunches and dinners were of high Cuisine standard as were the selection of drinks, both alcoholic and non- alcoholic.
The hotel is located in a jungle with views to Myanmar and Laos.
The staff are exceptional and are always available and ready to deliver outstanding service. In fact after day 1, they knew our names and food and beverage preferences.
Breakfast can be served to you and such a choice. The Italian restaurant is outstanding and there are soft drinks and snacks available either by the large swimming pool or in the shade by the lounge.
Over the road is the Opium Museum which is a story so well told you should not miss it and free tickets are available from reception.
But if all this wasn't enough there is the Elephant Experiences, just choose which one suits. We did the 7am Walking with Giants as the weather is cooler then and as breakfast starts at 6:30 we grabbed a coffee, then had a full breakfast after our 90 minute walk, fantastic and unforgettable.

Excellent hotel

I spend my anniversary to stay this hotel, all the environment and facilities are wonderful and peaceful for us , the staff I met are always helpful during my stay! Especially Kanjana and Athip are good service in restaurant! Moreover, Mai and Mint are also very aggressive in service !
All of them bring us an unforgettable stay !!

We won't forget our time here

Our honeymoon could not have been better. Thailand was for both of us the destination to go and a friend came up with the Resort. From the very beginning communication was quick and their English professional. We already know, during our time here we will be in good hands.

Their concept is based on jungle feeling and mix of history and modern design. We loved our room. View wise most of the rooms go out to the camp. It's like a lookout. Some day trips were included, but what we enjoyed most was the relaxed atmosphere. The spa which was included was used daily. Good massages, the pools were amazing.

Food, I cannot complain. Throughout the day there was always someone preparing snacks, drinks. We could move here ;)

Conclusion, ********* I'd give as many stars as possible for our time here. Thailand has been beautiful and I'm sure we will come again.
