With its stunning natural landscapes, incredible history and culture, and diverse wildlife, there is no doubt Thailand is one of the greatest countries in the world to visit. Whether you're traveling for a few months or just looking for a relaxing vacation from work, there is a good reason more than 39 million people visited Thailand in 2019.
And now, I can only imagine that number is going to rise, because the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in northern Thailand is offering what must be one of the greatest experiences available on the planet.
The gorgeous resort is being added to every traveler's 'to-do list' after offering the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay in a luxury 'Jungle Bubble' in an area that is frequented by local elephants. This means guests will be able to sleep under the stars and wake up with some of nature's most spectacular creatures.
Per Anantara, the unique 236-square-foot bubbles were designed by Eye in the Sky and were constructed with high-tech polyester fabric to ensure their integrity and longevity.
Inside, the Jungle Bubbles are air-conditioned to maximize comfort, and feature a large bedroom with a king-size bed and living space with a living area. The bubbles also include a full en-suite bathroom (thankfully, not transparent), meaning you won't have to risk being stepped on by a passing herd as you're taking a leak.
Staff will also deliver a dinner basket right to your dome, meaning you never have to leave the tranquil pod. Just imagine tucking into a delicious meal, underneath the stars, as a group of elephants strolls by.Check out the amazing moment a heard o elephants defended a calf from a pack of wild dogs:
To make things even better, the 60 elephants on-site were rescued from the streets of Thailand's cities and brought to the resort to live out the rest of their years in peace.
And if you'd like to learn more about these incredible creatures, the resort also offers a 'Walking With Giants' tour, during which, guests will be joined by either a biologist or vet to learn about "how these intelligent creatures think and behave," Etienne De Villiers, Anantara's cluster director of public relations, told Apartment Therapy.
De Villiers added: "Guests can observe the elephants’ social interaction in their native habitat. The fun of either a river bath or mud playtime demonstrates just how cheeky these graceful animals can be."
A stay in one of the Jungle Bubbles will cost $585 per night for two people - but that's nothing for memories I'm certain will last a lifetime. For more information, following the link HERE.
