Elephants were chained for the entire day right in front of our room many times we saw the elephants attempt to get to each other but the chains would not allow them. NATURAL HABITATE The elephants are chained almost all day. They are not moved from the spot they are placed from morning to dusk. In some cases we saw 2 elephants trying to reach for other but unable due to the chains. SIGNS OF STRESS One female we saw 4 times was swaying back and forth with her trunk swaying upper body was swaying she never stopped. We were told by the Four Seasons staff that the elephants were only chained at night yet every elephant we saw was chained all day. NONE were able to roam free. Suggestions: tourists go in safari vehicles like Africa does to see the elephants. At Nagala tent camp they have a set up that attracts to the lodge and the elephants drink from the pool. We were told this wasn’t possible as the trucks would scare them yet there were trucks and motor bikes in the elephant areas all day and quite a few of them. The staff and service provided was excellent. The accommodations were fair to good considering this was Four Seasons. We have stayed at other tent camps which were far superior.

Whilst the staff were amazing and the food and drink excellent as were the tours , the elephant experience and the complementary massage for 2 ( everything was included in price) we were disappointed with the rooms which were dark and the facilities antiquated. We knew we would be staying in a tent but didn’t realise that the WC, shower, bath and basins would be so old and rustic. The bed was good but the lighting inadequate and it was impossible to roll up the layers of plastic and canvas blinds which form the walls of the tent . Also we were in the furthest tent from the restaurant so we needed a jeep to get there although this service was excellent. It was difficult to get in and out of the jeep . Another criticism is the bar shuts at 8 which meant there was nothing to do after dinner. There are no TV’s in room .

Absolutely magical, the staff is amazing and more helpful and friendly than can be imagined.   We would come back in a heartbeat and stay longer.  Let the staff help you plan events, from bike riding, to elephant hikes, fishing and dinner on the mountain peak.  They figured out activities to make our experience special. The staff helped us fill our short visit with many amazing experiences. Norman’s City tour and biking is not to be missed. Ton took us on two elephant hikes and shared numerous stories. We enjoyed visiting with him at breakfast as much as we did with elephant Linda and Yuk Fa. We have traveled all over the world, because of the beautiful staff and surroundings, this is our favorite.

This hotel has been on my bucket list for such a long time. And boy, it didn’t disappoint. this is not your ordinary Four Seasons, instead you’ll sleep in a (very luxurious) tent with views over Laos and Myanmar. There are only around 15 tents, all very private and so it gets never crowded.We booked the four-day adventure package which included e.g. Spa treatments, visiting the elephants twice, bike tour etc. The staff is incredible - so attentive, kind and welcoming. Special shoutout to the camp manager Poy, who is such a great host, making sure that everybody is having their best time. Also Norman, who is the funniest and most knowledgable guide, He can do it all: elephant guide, bike instructor or temple guide in Chiang Mai. Of course, the highlights are the visits to see the elephants. The six Four Seasons elephants belong also to a foundation, where „unemployed“ elephants can live their best life. Contrary to earlier days, you are no longe allowed to ride elephants (which I am very supportive of), but you can visit them in the grassland or up on the hill. There is only one restaurant for breakfast, lunch & dinner, however the menu is very diverse (not only Thai). Everything we tasted was 10/10. I highly recommend to stay 4 nights to make use of all the amenities and also it’s quite a trip to get there from BKK. Poy & team: thank you very much for making our stay unforgettable - we’ll cherish the memories forever!!

Stayed here with my husband for our honeymoon. The rooms are so beautifully designed and the staff is incredible. They had a wine and cheese prepared for us on our first night and our somelier was amazing we loved him along with the rest of the staff and the camp manager. Airlines lost my husbands bag so they also let us do some laundry without charge which was so kind. My only reason to give this a 4 out of 5 instead of a 5 out of 5 was that some of the listed complimentary services on their website werent offered (such as a cocktail making class) or were not complimentary like the hike. We did the small hike that ended up costing over 200$ and even though our guide Rain was awesome, the hike was not worth that price. Their Christmas dinner prepared was also very intimate and beautiful. Thank you for a great stay Four Seasons Tented Camp.

Dear Andrea R, Warm greetings from our bamboo jungle! Thank you for taking the time to write this review and share the details of your beautiful stay.

This is truly unique experience. Everything is unexpected ! 5 stars tents in the middle of tropical forest, elephants eating just next to you their breakfast (actually you can feed them !), high class food and creative drinks at sundown Burma Bar. On top of this, super professional team, taking care of all guests to make our stay unforgettable. All team members were great but we would like to give a special THANK YOU to Lei (hope to write properly his name !), as he is multi skilled person : great guide through Thai wines and cheeses, professional waiter and creative bartender (his author drink LADYBOY is a must try !). We also had wonderful walk with elephants and also very nice trip to the nearest small city, with authentic market and beautiful temples. But in case you think to go to Four Seasons, hurry up ! The uniqueness of this place might disappear soon, as on the other bank of the river Chinese investors are building so called “Laos Vegas”, with loud music and skyscrapers. So,change your plans for 2024 and put Four Seasons Tented Camp on top of your list !

I will personally convey your gratitude to Lae and the entire team for their excellent contributions to your experience. Thank you so much as well for recommending our property and sharing your helpful feedback regarding the construction on the Laos side. We do understand that it does impede the illusion of complete disconnect and seclusion. We do our best to maintain our bamboo jungle environment and the local authentic experiences to the best of our ability.

Wow. Nothing really prepares you for what to truly expect but when you get there you are blown away. Arrival experience in a long boat sets the tone. Gongs and welcome tea moves it along. Then the tent. More like a luxury suite. Views fantastic and dream like. Privacy YES (tent 8 is the most private). Breakfast with the elephants was very cool. Walking with these gentle giants in their natural habitat and learning more about how they rescue them was very interesting. We did a cooking class in the outdoor kitchen with their chef... learned a little about the food and culture. Went to the local market and a tour of chiang sean. Had a private dinner at the top of the camp . Food was great and plentiful. Drinks at the bar were creative. Staff attentive and focused on you. Felt very welcome to their home. Only caution is that there is a lot of walking. Up and down uneven stairs. That part felt like actual camping. Go here for 3 nights if you can!

Paweena and her staff were exceptional! They were so gracious and warm and thought of every detail. Tents were unique and beautiful and the property itself is serene and peaceful. We loved the elephant experience, spa, and organized tour. The food was absolutely amazing! I am gluten free and they created every dish/option without gluten for me! Interacting with the elephants at breakfast was another highlight of our stay!

This is a truly unique property. We interacted with Asian elephants daily. The elephants were a highlight of our trip but the rooms were amazing. The food at the hotel was amazing. They had a nice mix of Thai and American options. The rooms were relaxing and very well appointed. Each rooms has its own outdoor shower and were fun, private and provided an amazing view of the property. 10 out of 10 I would recommend.

Once-in-a-lifetime experience. Words cannot describe how amazing it was. Our wedding was more than we could have dreamed for. The setting, the people, the monks, the flowers, the food, the elephants, the massage…our wedding dinner at night… the list is endless of how great it was. The whole time we were in awe at everything and how well we were treated. The tent was beautiful and the lodge was absolutely breathtaking. We didn’t want to leave. Our wedding photos are beautiful. Our whole day was captured perfectly. We can’t stop looking at them all. A jungle wedding!! What a dream come true!! Yok, Macall and Rain along with all the other staff were the most lovely, helpful and happy people. Thank you so so so much for everything you did for us. We could not fault a single thing whilst we stayed with you. Special memories that we will cherish forever. Laura & Toni
