Immerse yourself in the breathtaking wonders of Thailand with a luxurious jungle bubble experience where you can watch elephants in their natural environment.
Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has unveiled its one-of-a-kind transparent hotel suites boasting uninterrupted views of the gentle giants.
The glass domes offer complete privacy along with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to marvel at the elephants at close quarters in their natural surrounds and to gaze into the starlit night sky.
This world-first experience allows guests to spend a night with these impressive mammals in the breathtaking surrounds of Northern Thailand’s ancient jungle.
Perched on a hill overlooking the tranquil Mekong and Ruak rivers, the secluded destination makes for an idyllic, uninterrupted adventure as it provides views of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.
While guests are close to nature, the experience isn’t without the luxuries for which Anantara is known. Bathrobes, slippers, crisp white bed linen, feather-filled pillows, air conditioning, private ensuite and inviting king bed are just some of the indulgent comforts.
Those wanting to experience something utterly unique can do so with a warm heart. The elephants living at the jungle bubbles have been rescued by Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation.
The foundation, which was established in 2006, was created to save elephants and their mahouts from the streets of Thailand by providing an oasis where they can rest and grow.
This world-first experience allows guests to spend a night with elephants in the breathtaking surrounds of Northern Thailand’s ancient jungle.
And it’s not just Anantara allowing guests these magical interludes with wildlife.
