Sleeping in a Transparent Bubble. In a Thai Jungle. Beside Elephants.

You Won't Get Many Opportunities Like This One


There are many places to sleep in Thailand.

Hotels, apartments, the bench of some all-night bar...

But only one place puts you face-to-face with elephants in their natural habitat.

In a situation where you probably won't get trampled.

That place: the new Jungle Bubbles at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort. It's a pair of transparent domes that were custom designed and constructed with high-tech polyester fabric, so they're strong but see-through. Each 236-square-foot space is fully furnished and air-conditioned, with a king-size bed and living space, plus an en-suite bathroom. Don't worry, that last one is not transparent.  

Inside your dome, you'll find additional amenities like bathrobes and slippers, a fully-stocked mini bar and 24-hour room service. Although you may be more interested in what's outside: elephants.

See, you'll be staying in the jungle outside of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand, perched in a little triangle between Myanmar and Laos. Those bubbles are part of the larger resort, which includes the elephant camp. Hence all the elephants strolling by your bed. 

During the day, you can walk with elephants through bamboo forests, feed them, splash in the river and otherwise interact with these gentle giants. And in the evening, you can eat and drink at the on-property restaurant and bar before retiring to your porch for a nightcap with your 10,000-pound neighbors.
