There is something deliciously intriguing and inspiring about staying in one of the 15 open-air luxury tents at Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle.  Conceived by the celebrated interior designer Bill Bensley, the sense of enchantment begins with the picturesque location of the tents, scattered across half a mile of rolling forest-covered hillside, the better to enjoy gorgeous views.

There are 15 originally-themed tents that are temples of fine design. Exquisite metal craftwork created by exemplary local artisans and an eclectic array of explorer-themed antiques – vintage compasses and rifles and primitive fishing implements – are just some of the delights in store.  Well-spaced for privacy and quiet, the tents are connected by a quaint brick trail lined with bamboo. Guests may choose from Deluxe and Superior styles. The five Deluxe tents, for example, feature private outdoor whirlpools that take the experience to another level of luxury.

Decorative features unique to each tent range from framed artworks to a personal library. Or to be more specific:

  • Tent 5: Botanists - A wow for nature lovers featuring botanically-inspired décor and books on botany.

  • Tent 12: Hill Tribe - The tent where hill tribe people in the area would feel most at home.

  • Tent 13: Explorer - The romance of the great explorers is cleverly captured in this tent that includes a map of the world and binoculars with which to see far.

  • Tent 14: Burmese - Burmese alphabet characters are beautifully framed and a short course in Burmese history is available to read.

MY ELEPHANT AND I 
Did you know that elephants have six sets of teeth over their lifetime? Or that they don’t actually love peanuts? Learn more about elephants in the best possible way – by keeping them company in their own natural habitat. This immersive experience begins at the Elephant Camp, where your mahout guide explains how elephant anatomy works – a lesson that is sure to be full of surprises! 
  
Once you have the basics down, set off on a walk through the wilderness with your elephant companions. Stop by the pond to see their playful side as they splash about happily and drink water by the gallon. As you make your way through the grassland together, the mahout tells you more about the behavioral traits of these gentle giants. Observe closely and you will find that each elephant has its own distinct personality – some are mischievous, others are nurturing, while a few love to showboat. 
  
Next up is bath-time at the river, a cherished daily ritual for elephants and their mahouts. Afterwards, head to the bamboo hut for some well-deserved refreshments – bananas for the freshly bathed elephants and a platter of delicious snacks for you. Conclude this unforgettable experience with a photo session alongside your new friends – these precious mementos are sure to be treasured for years to come.
