Luxurious all-inclusive camping experience complete with elephants and modern touches like a spa and yoga classes
When the Four Seasons does camping, it turns out, that means a spa and masseuse, pillow-top beds, and a wine cellar. This luxe resort occupies a stunning patch of scenery at the borders of Thailand, Burma, and Laos and has just 15 luxury tents scattered among the trees. Flaps open to the air, and the views—verdant hills, bamboo forests—are so calm-inducing you’ll forget you have any problems at all. The tents feature hardwood floors and are stuffed with locally made metal craftwork including antiques that seem sourced from old-timey explorers, like a compass and a rifle. Splurge on a “Deluxe” tent to get your own wooden hot tub on the deck. If you’ve ever wanted to get up close and personal with an elephant, now’s your chance: the camp has its own elephant crew, and mahouts will take you trekking and bathing with the gentle giants. Afterwards, sit down to a divine communal meal of local specialties or western cuisine, sample a wine or two from the cellar, and enjoy that sense of wellbeing that comes from the very glammest of glamping experiences.
In the Area
Though most of the hotel’s all-inclusive packages include excursions, the camp’s isolation means you won’t be renting a car and heading off to explore on your own (even your arrival at the camp involves a long-tail boat trip down the Ruak River). The off-site trips organized by the Four Seasons include city tours of Chiang Rai, trips to the markets and pagodas in the Burmese border town of Takilek, hikes that end with a dip into natural hot springs, and visits to Thailand’s hill tribe communities.
