Location

Perched on a ridge overlooking the striking mountains of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, as well as on the convergence of the Ruak and Mekong Rivers, the hotel is a hub for nature and comes with an abundance of stand-out and phenomenal views. The resort is located within the elephant camp

How to get there

Gone are the days where you would have to access the hotel by either longtail river boat or elephant, as the hotel is accessible by car, plane and boat. The Anantara is a one-hour drive from Chiang Rai Airport, return car transfers are available on request. There are several flights a day from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to Chaing Rai Airport, which makes for easy access. Boat transfers can be arranged from Chiang Saen pier to the hotel pier for a more scenic journey, this trip has a duration of about 15 minutes.

When to go

The hot season runs between March and May, with seasonal temperature starting at 27 degrees Celsius and rising to 36 degrees Celsius. April is the warmest month of the year, so the best time to visit the area is during the transition from the cool season to the hot season, therefore March offers refreshing yet desirable weather.

Important Information

Smoking is allowed in outdoor areas, and by request in dedicated rooms.

Due to the jungle setting, light layers and insect repellent are highly recommended.

Between the months of November and February it can be chilly, so layers are advised.

Outdoor boots are recommended for elephant walks as it can be muddy.
