Review:   My husband and I flew from Bangkok to Chiang Rai to stay at Anantara Elephant Camp. We were thrilled to escape Bangkok and spend some relaxing time in the mountains. However our excitement was very short lived, unpon arriving at the hotel we heard very loud construction noises. It turns out that the hotel is in the middle of a major construction project and didn’t inform us until we arrived. The entire lobby, lobby bar, and reception area were all under construction as was one ENTIRE side of the hotel. Additionally a small house was being constructed right outside of our room. The side of the hotel completely under construction is the side next to the pool, so enjoying the pool is impossible. The noise from the construction was loud and constant. The smell from the fumes being used to seal the floors in the lobby made eating dinner at the main restaurant impossible. We had to eat all meals inside the Italian restaurant which is windowless. One of the main attractions to this resort is the amazing views you are surrounded by, clearly we didn’t want to eat inside. During the day the noise from the construction was so loud the staff recommended sitting inside during meals. Additionally the main pool hot tub was broken and no one even bothered to turn on the filters for the pool so it was filled with bugs. My husband and I could not have been more disappointed. This stay was part of our honeymoon and it was very unpleasant. We have always stayed at banyan tree hotels, four seasons or six senses and never at a Anantara property before. We were very excited to give this hotel group a chance and shocked at how bad our experience was. The staff were absolutely lovely and apologized constantly for the noise but when I asked why were weren’t told in advance no one had any answers expect to say that we should have been. The hotel manger happened to be on vacation during our stay (great time to not be at the resort). The on duty manger said it was immediate work that needed to be done due to a storm but when I pointed out that half the hotel was covered in bamboo scaffolding (which must have taken a long time to put up) and that a laminated card was in our room saying they would be doing maintenance projects during the dates of our stay- no one could explain. We were comped one night of our stay and I appreciate that but I had to ask numerous times about how this situation was going to be made right. I had to complain and arguing which was the last thing I wanted to be doing. We would have never stayed at this resort if we knew about the construction. Overall we felt tricked by the hotel. Clearly they knew about how extensive the renovations were and how loud the all day long construction was and choose to say nothing. I can’t imagine a worse business model to instill brand loyalty in any customers.

Review:   An unforgettable destination hotel, with amazing views of elephants and the Thai countryside. Facilities are first class. The tours and activities are action-packed, Spa excellent and pool is stunning; especially watching elephants from the jacuzzi pool. Staff are incredibly obliging - catering for even the most niche of requests. Breakfast on the terrace is nearly worth the room rate alone.

Review:   Gorgeous views. Wonderful service. Rooms could use some updating, but they are comfortable and spacious. Walk with elephants and Mahout Experience are incredible. If ethical treatment of animals is important to you and you want a luxury resort unlike any other, Anantara is absolutely the perfect choice.

Review:   I'm sure Anantara Golden Triangle was once a 5 star hotel, maybe in the early 2000's. It is at most 3.5 stars in 2018. The location and the staff are great, but the food and amenities are subpar. The facilities needs a serious upgrade. For such a beautiful location, the resort does not match it's beauty.

Review:   It is a nice place for holiday and relaxation with good massage package. The location is close to the airport. This resort is popular for the foreign travellers.
