River Kwai Resotel is a great place to chill out and use as a base for your Kanchanaburi vacation. Some aspects of the resort are a bit aged, but that just adds to the charm. A convenient 10 minute walk to the Lava Caves. I love the daily 10 minute long-tail boat ride to/from the car park! and it's included... More

We only stayed here one night which was unfortunate because the setting was spectacular. We were a bit dubious about even staying one night due to some of the negative reviews posted on Trip Advisor, but are glad we came with an open mind. The long tail boat ride to and from the hotel was a great surprise, our 4... More

We really were not expecting much from this resort as it was just a one night stop over. It was set right in the mountains & jungle. It was tranquil & spectacularly situated right on the River Kwai. The longtail boat ride to get there was fantastic & all part of the experience. The staff were very pleasant, most did... More

The place is quiet and isolated. It is good to leave the city behind and be in the the mountain and forest. Internet and mobile can rarely be used. the place is big but the nice seating and enjoying are fully occupied. Breakfast is so so. Food and service is so so.

My wife & I who are both in our 50's stayed in this hotel for one night in March 2015. The hotel is clean & well kept & quite comfortable. If you are looking for somewhere to really get away from it all, then this is it 1

Staying in the jungle was absolutely great! The cottages were average but clean and large and air conditioned. Food on the buffet was ok and the menu was a tad better. After a long hot day sightseeing, the pool was terrific. The hotel has long tailed boats to pick you up from their dock and it makes for a great... More

Never been to the jungle this place was so cool! Coy pond. Hike to cave. Mountain bike rentals. Nice pool. Reasonably priced food. No need to leave the jungle paradise! I love you have to take a boat to get there

Our main reason for staying here was the hotel's arranging of getting guests to Hellfire Pass for the ANZAC Day dawn service, it started with a 1:30 am wake up call, on the long tail boat at 2am, in open truck at 2:15, parking at the site at 2:30, in place right at the front of the service by 2:45...
