Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle
Jungle living has gone civilized, not to mention luxurious, in this compound of 15 posh tents lying on the banks of the Ruak River by the Thailand-Laos-Myanmar border (a.k.a. the Golden Triangle). Set on stilts amid verdant brush and bamboo, and connected by elevated walkways, each individual 581-square-foot canvas-covered shelter is equipped with a large wood deck, plush pillow-top mattress, polished-teak floor, huge copper bath, and outdoor rain shower. The setting overlooks the river, jungle treetops, and the mountains and includes a rock-lined pool, whirlpool, and open-air spa. And the best resort perk? You can ride and train an elephant with the help of professional mahouts.
