“We have been thrilled to receive such a widely positive response not only in the media but mostly from our guests who experienced the bubbles … Talk about social distancing!”
says Gauderic Harang, General Manager at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp and Resort.
“We knew when we setup the bubbles that we were creating something special,
but it is only once you experience it yourself that you truly understand how special and unique it is.”
The bubbles are on a raised platform and are surrounded by a fence, so guests are in no danger of a bad tempered pachyderm.
Moreover, the bubbles are sealed so travelers need not worry about bugs and other creepy crawlies of the jungle, and they face away from one another,
so guests will not see their bubble neighbors. Unfortunately, the pods premiered just before the Covid crisis.
“Before we closed our doors, about 200 guests got to experience them, and their feedback was overwhelming. Anything you may have read is under the reality; it is such a special experience,”
Harang says. “I remember guests sharing the recording of one of our gentle giants snoring, so amazing.”
Found across 650,000 square meters of Northern Thailand’s jungle, Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort is perched on a hill overlooking the Mekong and Ruak rivers at the confluence of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar.
By day travelers can enjoy the elephants and stargaze by night.
The Jungle Bubbles were custom designed by Eye In The Sky and are constructed with high tech polyester fabric using exclusive Precontraint Serge Ferrari technology.
The well-appointed bubble accommodation is fully airconditioned with a 15-foot diameter bedroom and living space with a king bed and seating area.
Guests at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort can purchase the Jungle Bubble experience as an optional activity and spend the night from dusk till dawn, returning to the hotel in the morning.
Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort is world famous for its elephant camp that,
along with the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF), was set up primarily to help elephants that cannot help themselves.
“We set-up a foundation 15 years ago, the GTAEF, with the goal to assist and support elephants and caretakers, as well as their families, who can’t support themselves,”
Harang says, adding that guests see a portion of their spend directly sponsoring the foundation.
“In Thailand captive elephants have been around for close to 3,000 years.
In normal times, these captive elephants rely on tourism revenue in order to ensure food, medicine, as well as the caretaker’s livelihood.”
