The Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle Just Got an Upgrade


The Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle has revealed a spacious lodge, and there is not a stitch of canvas in sight, writes CHRISTOPHER KUCWAY.

IF THIS IS CAMPING, then sign me up. While no stay at the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle would be considered roughing it, the northern Thai resort has taken comfort to a new level with its two-bedroom Explorer's Lodge. A king-sized room and a twin room—both with en suite bathrooms—are bisected by a private pool that drops off into the dense, green valley that separates Thailand from Burma.

The first room on the property that isn't a tent, it can fit six people into a 232-square-meter space, but four would be better, or two, if complete solitude is your aim. At the far end of what already is a secluded resort, it's walking distance to the stars of the show, the rescued elephants. As much as the pachyderms—beautifully human in their reactions, their eye contact and their varying personalities—occupy every waking moment here, staff admit to a new concern: lodge occupants rarely want to leave the spacious outdoor deck and pool. It's easy to see why.
