Legend of the Golden Lotus
Tour + Wildlife
Ready to explore Thailand in luxury? You’ll be picked up at your house by one of our chauffeurs who will take you to the airport. Once you land in Chiang Mai you’ll be met and fast-tracked through immigration before taking a VIP transfer to your hotel. You’ll spend the next day exploring the ancient and modern facets of the city - from serene temples to buzzing markets – before indulging in a Northern Thailand feast at the open-air restaurant of Baan Suan overlooking the Ping River. You’ll also get a chance to spend the day at an Elephant Nature Park where you’ll meet the elephants and learn about the important work the volunteers do.
Next, you’ll be transferred to Four Seasons Chiang Mai, a luxury resort with an infinity pool and spa set in the stunning surrounds of the beautiful Mae Rim Valley. Spend your days here relaxing at the infinity pool, or indulging in a treatment at the award-winning spa. On your last night at the hotel, we have reserved a private dinner for you at the Rice Barn where you’ll enjoy an exquisite five-course meal by moon and candlelight.
You’ll travel to Bangkok in VIP style where you’ll see the city by private helicopter. High in the sky, unrestricted with ground traffic, you’ll take in the city from above; spot the gigantic statue of the three-headed elephant at Erawan Museum and enjoy impressive panoramic views over the city. Later on enjoy a dinner at Sirocco Sky Bar, widely considered one of the world’s best rooftop restaurants that afford diners a 360-degree view of Bangkok. You’ll spend your last full day in the capital getting to grips with Buddhist culture on the ground where you’ll visit the Buddhist temple complex of Wat Pho and the nearby Grand Palace, which has served as the seat of Thailand's revered Royal family for more than two centuries.
Tired from city life? No matter – today you’re off to Soneva Kiri. One of our Out of This World Properties, it’s reached by a flight on the hotel’s own plane, the Cessna Grand Caravan. After a 70 minute flight to Koh Mai Si, the private airport island, you will be taken by a luxury speed boat to the resort’s jetty where you’ll be welcomed. Koh Kood may be one of Thailand’s largest islands, but it’s the least populated too. The result? Remote luxury in some of the world’s most scenic surroundings. Your time here is yours to spend however you deem fit. Take a Thai herbal bath in the spa, snorkel the pristine coral reef at Koh Rang Yai National Marine Park, stargaze at the state-of-the-art observatory or watch a classic Hollywood flick outside underneath the stars.
You’re back in Bangkok for one night only! There is an optional nighttime tour to give you a taste of the capital's legendary nightlife. Watch the sunset with a cocktail, enjoy authentic street food for dinner before browsing the night market for a few souvenirs to take home with you.
On Day 15 you’ll depart for home relaxed from your luxury island stay with plenty of wonderful Thai memories to cherish.
