Explorer’s Lodge, Four Seasons Tented Camp, Chiang Rai, Thailand

Situated on a hillside at the confluence of the Ruak and Mekong Rivers, this two-bedroom villa offers a unique alternative to the resort’s 15 luxurious two-person tents, scattered throughout the jungle with sweeping vistas of Thailand, Myanmar, and Burma. Designed by Bill Bensley, the villa is inspired by the resort’s 19th-century safari-adventure theme, featuring meticulously crafted wooden furnishings, rich timber flooring, atmospheric hurricane lamps, and striking hand-hammered copper bathtubs. However, with its outdoor plunge pool and a wealth of activities centered around the camp’s rehabilitated elephants, it’s challenging to envision spending much time indoors. We recommend embarking on an invigorating ascent to the resort’s highest point for a breath-taking sunrise view behind the Laotian mountains during breakfast, followed by a soothing traditional Thai massage in the spa, enveloped by the lush bamboo jungle upon your return to camp.
