VIP Regal Elephant Arrival

VIP Arrival

Travel by private car from Chiang Rai Airport to the historic riverside town of Chiang Saen, just 15 kilometres south of the resort. Board your private longtail boat and saunter down the mighty Mekong River to the confluence of two rivers, where Laos, Myanmar and Thailand converge and the Golden Triangle begins.

Pull up to our private jetty on the bank of the Ruak River for your first glimpse of our hilltop jungle retreat, and a welcoming committee of gentle giants from our famous onsite Elephant Camp.  Guided by an expert mahout carer, ride an elephant through lush jungle, rice fields and magnificent tropical gardens to the hotel lobby, where our executive staff will greet you with refreshments.

The VIP Regal Elephant Arrival takes approximately one and a half hours and is available only during day light.

Exclusive “Heli & Ele” Transfer

Travel with a bird’s eye view of the infamous Golden Triangle followed by a majestic jungle stroll, as Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort presents the ultimate way to travel.

Taking the concept of adventure soaring into the skies and deep into lush bamboo jungle, the unique “heli and ele” experience begins with a private helicopter transfer from either Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai direct to Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort.  Gaze down on northern Thailand’s lush topography of spectacular rolling countryside, mountainous jungles and scenic rivers.   As the helicopter nears its destination, catch your first glimpse of the mysterious meeting point between Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. Touching down on the banks of the mighty Mekong River, your regal ride awaits. Climb atop your trusty elephant and enjoy a rhythmic amble through the stunning 160 acre grounds of our breathtaking hilltop retreat, where untold luxury, captivating adventure and thrilling cultural journeys continue to inspire your time with us.
