15 overly luxurious tents and a Two-Bedroom Explorer's Lodge, perfect for families
Outstanding Four Seasons service and attention to detail
Gourmet cuisine served in a variety of different locations
Multitude of activities including visits to neighbouring Burma and Laos
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.
