If you’re not up-to-date on your latest far flung getaways–we weren’t, either–the Anantara Gold Triangle resort is perched on a ridge in northern Thailand overlooking the border with Myanmar and Laos and is among the finest Chiang Rai hotels. In other words, it’s an incredible off-the-grid experience with spectacular views, amenities, concierge services and, most importantly, the opportunity to spend your days and nights observing Thailand’s majestic elephants in their natural habitats from the comfort of your very own air-conditioned bubble. Yes, you read that correctly. using Precontraint Serge Ferrari technology, Anantra has created spacious bedroom and living space bubbles complete with king bed, en-suite bathroom, 24-hour in-room dining and a fully-stocked mini bar that you can enjoy while still gazing upon some of the most majestic creatures that have ever walked the Earth. The domes are available starting at $585/night for two people, but we suggest you book quickly because reservations are already scarce.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
