This hotel surroundings are gorgeous. It's isolated in the jungle, and we came by longboat. The rooms are in cute bungalows, with a nice spacious shower and an awesome private balcony. The location makes for a tranquil environment and you can hear all the wonderful jungle noises. There is a hotel pool (very nice) and restaurant. The restaurant food is... More

We , my friends and I satisfied the room condition and resort environment so much. Everyone who loves nature would love here too. Everything went well on our first day, but the next day did not. Breakfast time, we were in the resort restaurant, and no staffs refilled foods that running out of the buffet line. There were 2 omlets... More

We originally planned on spending one night at the Floatel, and one night here. We ended up spending both nights at the Resotel, because the Jungle Rafts really weren't what he had been expecting. What you'll find there is basic camping-style accommodations, with shared spaces outside of your room. After taking your long tail boat ride from the pier, and... More

This hotel by the side of the river Kwai near Hellfire pass, north west of Kanchanaburi was an overnight stay as part of a 3 day cultural trip taking in the death railway, bridge and cemetery in the surrounding area around Kanchanaburi. It was a welcome relief after spending a night at the Float House river Kwai resort with no... More

You get everything what you see on the picture, but in a used version. Food was not good! 1 very good lady at reception, the others are bad. Expensive taxi's and excursions. Noisy boats on the river. In the rooms were a lot of bugs, even in the toilet.

We stayed there one night after travelling from River Kwai Bridge. To get to the resort, we must first take a fast river boat that takes is to the hotel dock. The resort itself is spread out in the woods and every cabin is very well surrounded by Thai lust greenery. The cabins were basic but clean and comfortable and... More

Quite an adventure to get there :) We decided to get there without the transfer offered by the resort. had to take bus from Bangkok to Kanchanburi and another van to the drop-off spot at the resort's...

Resortel is in a remote green location with the river in the background. It's in the juggle setting, so the grounds are pleasantly green and the river views are beautiful. Most guests arrive by the long boat, but we drove and it was an easy drive on a good, if curvy, country road. The room was spacious with a private... More

Resotel is an older rustic style hotel, nicely located on a river bank in a jungle gorge. The only way to reach it is via a small boat, which was an adventure in itself. If you stay anywhere in this region bear in mind you will be isolated from civilisation -but this is also its appeal. Nearby raft hotels look... More
