Northern Thailand's cool winter months may be the coolest novelty for landlocked travellers longing for a wintry Christmas this year, and Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has all the bells and whistles to ensure that it's the most wonderful time of the year.
Unfolding across 160 acres of Northern Thailand's mystical ancient jungle, Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort is perched on a hill overlooking the Mekong and Ruak rivers. The secluded location is exclusively positioned to take in majestic three country views over the confluence of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, and grazing elephants in the most stunning of natural settings below.
For those who seek a superior holiday experience that can be as spirited, laidback or personalised as their heart and soul desire, Anantara Golden Triangle's curated Christmas programme offers the young and young-at-heart all the thrills and frills that one expects from a luxury resort in a secluded location. Here guests can participate in unique and once-in-a-lifetime elephant experiences, including the Walking with Giants signature experience that provides an optimum way of getting to know the elephants and develop a deeper emotional connection with them. And, in a world first, guests can spend the night observing Thailand's majestic elephants in their natural habitat while staying in unique transparent Jungle Bubbles. Beyond the borders of the luxury resort and Asia's premier elephant camp, guests can explore Thailand's fabled Golden Triangle or take a drive to the mystical mountainous area of Doi Tung in Royal Enfield sidecars.
All the traditional Christmas festivities are exquisitely catered for, albeit with a few three-ton twists. Guests can participate in a Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Monday, 21 December 2020 and delight in festive cheer during the Christmas Eve gala dinner, accompanied by an indigenous hill tribe Christmas choir. On this night, Santa Claus is also confirmed to swing by the resort, though his deer and sleigh will be replaced by a parade of the resort's resident elephants to help carry his load of gifts. Christmas Day in the Golden Triangle is relaxed affair over a leisurely brunch with a delectable selection of fresh seafood, Italian charcuterie, sumptuous turkey, local live cooking stations, Christmas cakes and puddings and lots of festive spirit.
Round off the year on a dazzling note with a New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball by the pool. A fusion of Western traditions and traditional Thai rituals including a local cultural show, traditional craftsmanship stalls - all rounded off with a delicious buffet and live music. Ring in the New Year in jungle style under the stars with a beautiful lantern releasing ceremony.
