Discover the legendary Golden Triangle up in the north of Thailand, at the fantastically luxurious Four Seasons Tented Camp, stunningly located on the border of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, and overlooking the Mekong River.
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 river trips, hill tribe visits, jungle trekking, nature walks, talks on local history and culture, bird watching, fishing, cooking classes and craft classes.

The tents here are designed by the famous architect Bill Bensley and the detail is incredible. Each tent has a different design theme and look over the remote countryside for a really off the beaten track experience. One of my favourite places I've ever stayed, there really are no words to describe this remarkable hotel and the service is second to none.

Your stay here is something you will be talking about for years to come. Staying in the most luxurious tent you will ever feast your eyes on, with views out to Burma and Laos and the fabulous Four Seasons service to match is just heaven. Although I would say, expect some strange wildlife noises at nights and bugs because you are after all in the jungle! But don't let this deter you as this is what makes the experience so special. Being all-inclusive means you really don't have to think about anything whilst you're there, well except your activity choice of the day or your evening beverage. Everything is taken care of for you, it is unlike any other camping experience.

Wow, what an experience staying here! Who knew that tents could be so luxurious and even have roll top baths in them! This is arguably the most luxurious tented camp in Asia and it does come at a price - although absolutely everything is included in your stay including all meals and an enticing programme of activities. They even through in a spa treatment for good measure. With no TV and no children, the atmosphere is so peaceful and relaxing, all to the stunning backdrop of Thai, Lao and Burmese scenery.
