Why we choose Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle

Hidden within an exotic bamboo jungle, Tented Camp is an adventure of a lifetime cushioned by five-star perks

  • Elephant “driving” is a huge draw here, where you can learn to bath, feed and drive an elephant, then venture into the lush, natural Thai jungle
  • Cruise the Mekong River on a traditional longboat enroute to the Golden Triangle
  • Rejuvenate your body and bathe your spirit amidst the bamboo forests at the Jungle Spa

Tented Camp is, without a doubt, the most unique Four Seasons property. First, the setting is tents—albeit luxurious ones—in Northern Thailand’s Golden Triangle. Secondly, it’s the brand’s first all-inclusive property, combining accommodation, meals, beverages and activities. Truthfully, it pretty much has to be all-inclusive because it’s not like you can duck into a McDonald’s in this remote area. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience for travelers who usually prefer the finest hotels and resorts.

We suggest

For the less mobile, request a tent closer to the main area.

What you need to know about the hotel

The surreal scenery and elephant encounters are perfect for nature lovers

  • The thatched-roof wine cellar stores an impressive collection of wines and serves as a tasting room
  • The spa, which bisects the camp, features two open-air salas, traditional techniques and mountain botanicals.
  • Deluxe Tents feature a custom-made, wooden hot tub on a 398-square-foot outdoor deck covered by an extended roof.

With plush, air-conditioned tents and white glove (literally) service, this is one rustic trip that isn’t so rustic. Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle has 15 luxe tents—named after local hill tribes, fauna and flora—that share a common layout but distinct décor. Each has a king-size bed on one side of the tent and an old-fashioned, two-person, hand-hammered copper bathtub in the middle of the room. The rest of the décor includes handcrafted furniture, hardwood floors, mosquito nettings and hurricane lamps.

Tent Camp encourages guests to share the experience with fellow travelers through intimate dining arrangements and communal activities, though the tents are spaced really far apart to maximize privacy. However, if you don’t want to walk quite a distance to access the dining tents or other central amenities, we recommend a tent near the main area.

Where is it and what's nearby

Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle, Tented Camp overlooks Thailand, Burma and Laos simultaneously

  • Discover Burma and its fascinating culture on a half-day visit to the border town and the Shwedagon pagoda.
  • Visit the once opium-inflicted area, now breathtaking parkland of the Doi Tung Royal Villa and Mae Fah Laung garden.
  • Explore the northern mountains of Chiang Rai and the tea cultivation customs of the Chinese communities at Doi Mae Salong

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle is located 60 minutes north of Chiang Rai on elevated ground near the confluence of the Ruak and Mekong Rivers. As the name suggests, it’s in the middle of the 75,300-square-mile Golden Triangle, which has been historically—and infamously—linked to the opium trade. Now, the agricultural products are more likely to be coffee and tea, and hill-tribe crafts like jewelry and textiles are a major export.

Tented Camp is surrounded by a bamboo forest that provides plenty to do, or you can stay at camp for a swim; spa treatment; Thai cooking session or traditional craft classes like basket weaving, cloth weaving and pottery.

How to enjoy Rest of Thailand

Possibly the ultimate vacation destination, Thailand offers something for everyone. From backpackers, to indulgers of all-inclusive beach luxury, explorers and culture curious, Thailand has it all

  • Go night swimming in Krabi for a chance to enjoy the shining blue spectacle of bioluminescence
  • Enjoy gentle encounters with elephants at Elephant Hills, where the focus is on luxury tents for you and caring welfare for them
  • The Andaman Coast features some of the country’s most stunning limestone karsts, particularly off Phuket and Krabi

Head up country into the foothills of the Thai Highlands to be rewarded with all that is Chiang Mai. Explore the moated Old City and find turreted temples alongside shop-houses and noodle bars. For the city’s finest golden temple, head to the Doi Suthep hill and marvel at the 1383 Wat Phrathat. The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar offers what is arguably the best market in Thailand, selling everything from clothes and jewelry to hot food.

Closer to the Laos and Myanmar border is the Golden Triangle city of Chiang Rai. Fewer tourists tend to come here, giving the city a quiet and reflective feel. The standout site is Wat Rong Khun, or the White Temple; the Thai version of the Sagrada Familia. Like Gaudi’s Barcelona cathedral, it is intricate, exquisite and unfinished. Closer to central Thailand, you’ll find the lush Khao Yai National Park, home to a variety of wildlife including hornbills, otters, tigers and elephants. It also features the waterfall from which Leonardo DiCaprio jumped in the famed scene from The Beach.

    When to visit Rest of Thailand

    The Thai New Year, Songkran, takes place between April 13 and 15. One New Year tradition, often joined in with vigor by tourists, includes water pouring. This symbolizes the washing away of sins and bad luck. It often manifests itself as a mass–and good natured–water fight. Enjoy!

  • You need to know

    For the less mobile, try to get a tent closer to the main area.

  • We say

    Riding the elephants is definitely worthwhile.
