JetSet Hotels: Four Seasons Tented Camp, Golden Triangle Thailand

This is likely the most exotic and intimate Four Seasons property in the world. With only 15 luxurious tents (I recommend Tent 14 with a private hot tub on the balcony and a view of elephants grazing below), the Four Seasons Golden Triangle is set deep in the jungle in northern Thailand very near the boarders of Burma (Myanmar) to the North and Laos to the East.

Guests come to experience the elephants up close and personal (learn how to ride and bathe them like a traditional mahut or fancy a game of elephant-back polo?) but also for a jungle trek to discover the fascinating hill-tribe natives, shop the local crafts along the Mekong River (textiles, weaving, cravings and silver work), and cross the bridge to Burma on foot to provide an offering at a local Buddhist Temple.   Of course in Four Seasons style you will retreat to luxury after a day of excursion; private wine cellar dinner or group dinner at Nong Yao Restaurant; your choice!  Three to four day itineraries available (fully inclusive programs) – a splurge worth every dime.
