Docking at Anantara's private jetty, guests then climb atop an elephant, and guided by an expert mahout, begin an unforgettable 35 minute trek through indigenous grounds of lychee trees, bamboo forest and lotus ponds, before arriving at the resort's lobby to enjoy refreshments served during check-in.
