My room was well furnished and beautiful with a lovely river view in a tropical sytle. I can enjoy sunrise at the terrace while breakfast was good. The staff were super friendly and efficient. I...

This is a lovely resort. Very relaxing spot with great pool over looking the river. Rooms very pretty and clean. Staff were all very helpful. My wife left some jewelry in the safe and they sent it to our US home address without any charges. Gym could be bigger.

The best place to be when you are not at home. Arrived in night time we saw a small temple surrounded by coloumns. Rooms are so beautiful but not kitsch. Two restaurants, one italian, the other Thai, where you can eat such a good food. A perfect pool in front of the river. Nothing has to be changed cause everything... More

The room and location are wonderful. The pool is great, and the spa services were excellent. The breakfast selections were ok. What was disturbing was that employees just chatted in groups while allowing bugs to accumulate on food at the buffet instead of attempted to keep them away. Also, I saw an employee smell a carton if milk, asked one... More

Stayed one night on way to Laos. Large, clean room with big shower room. Hotel gardens overlook the river and the pool was lovely. Staff were friendly and helpful even though we gate-crashed the restaurant for a very early breakfast. Recommended.

This hotel puts out a strong image of luxury and service. I have to say we were disappointed. We found the welcome to be somewhat cool. We stayed in one of the pool villas.
