Imagine waking up to the sights and sounds of the jungle, nestled safely in a luxury see-through ‘igloo’. Oh and you might also be paid a visit by herds of rescued elephants. 

A unique resort in Northern Thailand is giving its visitors the opportunity to wake up right next to the animals.

The stunning Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort, which boast a large number of these ‘Jungle Bubbles’ for guests to spend a memorable night in, rescued the 60 elephants from the city streets of Thailand and they now get to live out their days in peace.

The elephants are free to roam throughout the resort, which means they can be the last thing you see when you go to bed and the first thing you see when you upon waking.

According to the resort, their unique 236-square-foot bubbles were designed by Eye in the Sky and constructed with high-tech polyester fabric, ensuring their stability over time.

The air-conditioned bubbles feature a large bedroom with a king bed and a living space complete with a seating area. There’s also an en-suite bathroom in each bubble, meaning you don’t have to run the risk of bumping into a wandering elephant on your middle of the night bathroom run.

As if that wasn’t enough, you also don’t ever have to leave the comfort of your bubble as staff bring your dinner to you – meaning visitors can watch the sunset in comfort while the animals saunter by.

Guests can also take part in a Walking With Giants tour, accompanied by either a vet or a biologist to learn about ‘how these intelligent creatures think and behave,’ Etienne De Villiers, Anantara’s cluster director of public relations, told Apartment Therapy.

De Villiers continued:

Guests can observe the elephants’ social interaction in their native habitat. The fun of either a river bath or mud playtime demonstrates just how cheeky these graceful animals can be.
