Elephants, scenery, history, culture and temples – Anantara Golden Triangle Resort is an incredible experience
The Anantara Golden Triangle Resort is a real experience, in every sense. Located in the extreme north of Thailand where it borders Laos and Myanmar (Burma), overlooking the mighty Mekong river. Incredible scenery, eco-adventures and exploration.
The resort is 45 minutes drive from Chiang Rai city and airport. The resort operates on an all-inclusive basis. See Facilities below.
Anantara Golden Triangle Resort has a total of 63 Deluxe Rooms and Suites.
All face out towards Laos and Myanmar, hence their title Three Country view.
The Deluxe Rooms are spacious, with a balcony and would be suitable for two adults and one child on a sofa bed.
In addition, there are some larger Junior Suite Family Rooms and One Bedroom Suites.
New for 2020 were Two Totally Unique Pod Rooms. These allow you to sleep up close and personal to the elephants but in supreme comfort whilst enjoying the sights of nature that will surround you. Ask us for more details.
- A complete selection of eco-adventure tours, including a unique three countries in a day option.
- Fitness area with Muay Thai boxing ring and instruction
- Mekong river excursions
- Motorbike sidecar jungle pathway discovery
- Up-close and personal experiences with elephants and private tours to the various regional hill tribes can all be easily arranged .
If you are staying 3 nights or more we would suggest allowing time to visit Chiang Rai with its market and selection of attractive & ornate temples.
*The Three Countries in a Day ( Thailand, Laos, Myanmar ) has been suspended due to differing country protocols and logistics. It may be reintroduced, possibly at a cost – ask us for an update.
Anantara Golden Triangle Resort’s luxury comes in the incredible setting and the experiences, rather than the accommodation, which we would rate as good first class.
The elephant camp is, of course, one of the main attractions. The Walking with Giants Tour is just magical and very unique. You can arrange to get up early and go to the camp for a real up close and personal experience. The early morning misty views are incredible, with Myanmar below you and Laos just beyond.
The weather in this part of Thailand can see cool mornings and evenings, so a warm jumper might be required, especially in the months of November through to March.
Make time to visit Chiang Rai. It is a charming little market city, with some good coffee shops and a couple of riverside restaurants. There are a couple of outstanding temples, of which the White Temple is probably the most stunning.
A 3 day (2 night) extension tour from Bangkok including domestic flights starts from £988 per person, based on travel from April to October. Higher prices generally apply from November to March. Chiang Rai can easily be incorporated into a complete tour of Thailand, including Bangkok, Chiang Mai (a scenic 4-hour drive away) and then one of the southern beach resorts.
Anantara has an equally attractive hotel in Chiang Mai located on the riverside. And in Bangkok the Anantara Siam makes a luxurious & ideal base for discovering the delights of the city – Ask us for combination ideas.

Chiang Mai is the 2nd city of Thailand but is just a fraction of the size of Bangkok. It is compact, bustling and despite some recent development, it retains a market town atmosphere. It is the main gateway to the region. Flying time from Bangkok 60 minutes. Chiang Rai is in the extreme northeast of the country, even smaller and more traditional, with the focal point of interest being the Golden Triangle, the area where Thailand, Laos and Burma (Myanmar) all meet.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
