This season on The Bachelor, Sean Lowe, 29, the successful Dallas businessman and entrepreneur who charmed fans while wooing Bachelorette Emily Maynard, met 26 potential soul mates and began his journey in search of the right woman.
Sean was blindsided in the Caribbean island of Curaçao when Emily rejected him, and the audience watched as he wrestled to make sense of her decision. On March 11, viewers will find out if Sean has finally found love.
Chiang Rai, Thailand’s northernmost province that is renowned for its pristine natural beauty and the rich indigenous culture of its various hill tribe communities, will offer a dramatic setting for the upcoming season finale of The Bachelor, scheduled to air Monday, March 11, 2013 (8:00–10:01 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.
Viewers will accompany Sean and his final two bachelorettes as they explore the Anantara Golden Triangle Resort & Spa. Located in the famed Golden Triangle, this natural jungle retreat covers 160 acres and offers panoramic views of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos, as well as the Mekong River. The Anantara Golden Triangle is also home to an onsite Elephant Camp, which acts as the Northern extension of the Royal Thai Government’s Thai Elephant Conservation Centre (TECC). Here, Sean and his final contestants were afforded the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the country’s beloved gentle giants.
While in Chiang Rai, Sean and the remaining bachelorettes also released floating lanterns, referred to locally as khom loi, which is a ritual that originated in northern Thailand and traditionally symbolizes the floating away of problems and worries. The season’s final rose ceremony, in which Sean selects his winner and ultimately decides whether or not to propose, took place at Anantara’s private hilltop sala with a view of the Mekong River at sunset.
The Anantara Golden Triangle invites guests to share the same amazing adventures as those seen on with a new package offered exclusively by the resort. Couples can trek through a bamboo forest atop an elephant, dine in the middle of an exotic rice paddy field while being tended to by a private chef and butler, or recreate the famous rose ceremony at Anantara’s hilltop sala. package includes accommodations in the same suite featured on the show along with all-inclusive benefits including meals at the resort’s authentic Thai and Italian restaurants, Internet access and luxury transfers to and from Chiang Rai Airport.
Finally, the package grants couples access to the Opium Museum and one daily experience from a choice of Anantara Spa treatments, activities at the onsite Elephant Camp, a private class at Anantara Cooking School and a Golden Triangle private excursion. Prices for this one-of-a-kind trip start at USD $1,173 (BHT 35,000++).
Previously, Sean and his bachelorettes visited Thailand’s southern province of Trang, located along the Andaman Coast. During their time there, Sean and his guests experienced several of the destination’s highlights, including a visit to the “Emerald Cave” – a remote lagoon known for its emerald-colored waters and limestone cliffs – and a picnic on the remote Yong Ling Beach. Other notable activities experienced during their time in Trang included a visit to Si Kao Market and a ride on a traditional “junk boat” to Koh Kai and surrounding islands for snorkeling.
