Usually accessed by river boat, and set amidst Thailand’s exotic bamboo jungles, there is a spectacular and unique experience awaiting the more active at the safari-style Four Seasons Tented Camp.
With just 15 supremely luxurious tented accommodations – complete with roll top baths and attention to detail that is second to none - a three or four night adventure here is inclusive of exquisite cuisine, wines from the cellar as well as many activities such as learning how to train the camp’s elephants, river trips on the mighty Mekong and learning more about this fascinating region’s culture and tradition.
The tents themselves have got to be seen to be believed, you'd be forgiven if you thought you'd just stepped into a luxury city hotel room, until of course you look out the windows to the dramatic landscape encompassing you. Additionally the newly built Explorer's Lodge offers extra space for families. With two bedrooms, spacious deck and outdoor pool, it allows families with teens plenty of space to relax and soak up the natural surroundings.
Whether it is a meal in the Four Seasons Tented Camp's dining room, around the fire or having a drink on your balcony as the sun sets over the beautiful river scenery, a stay here is an experience never to be forgotten.
The Four Seasons Tented Camp has 15 luxury tents with rustic safari style décor using local materials such as bamboo, hardwood and leather. Each tent has a large open plan bathroom with a hand hammered copper bath, huge outdoor deck with daybeds and spacious living area. The Deluxe Tents have wooden hot tubs on the outdoor decks. There is a minimum three night stay. All tents feature: down pillows, wifi, minibar, phone, safe, and tea and coffee facilities. Tents all have a unique design based on their name, it could have a culinary focus or a hunting focus to name a couple! New for 2016 is the Explorer's Lodge, a new two bedroom lodge with a spacious deck and outdoor pool, ideal for families.
Children under the age of 12 years are not accepted at the Four Seasons Tented Camp but teenagers will love the adventure of tented accommodation and all of the exciting activities to enjoy in the surrounding countryside.
The Four Seasons Tented Camp has one restaurant where guests can chose to eat together 'safari style' or dine separately and sundowners over a chat about people's adventures of the day are a great tradition here. Dining experiences can change from day to day, there may be a picnic lunch set up on one day or a barbecue under the stars for dinner. There is a bar, wine cellar, two open air salas for spa treatments (each guest has one complimentary treatment) and a freeform swimming pool.
Excursions at the Four Seasons Tented Camp are numerous and include mahout training with the camp’s own elephants, river trips, hill tribe visits, jungle trekking, nature walks, talks on local history and culture, bird watching, fishing, cooking classes and craft classes.
