We immediatly remarked at our arrival the beautiful garden, Dennis was great and the meals (breakfast, dinner, lunch) a delight! Dennis always helped for each question. We enjoyed our stay very much! We stayed with 5 persons (2 adults, 3 kids) at a family bungalow, cleaning was always very ok, airco also! The springrolls are the best of Thailand, also... More

We booked for two nights but ended up staying for three, we will be hard pushed to find anywhere better in Thailand. The whole experience from start to finish was spectacular. Dennis and Nee are the nicest people you could meet and their hosting was second to none. Nee should be on Masterchef because she would win it hands down.... More

We have stayed here for 4 nights in June 2015. We had some trouble getting there as the train fro Bangkok Thonburi station to Kanchanaburi was cancelled due to railwayworks. Our (elderly) taxi driver did not know where to go, so we called Dennis and he talked the driver to the resort which is quite far from town itself. When... More

Situated a short 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Kanchanburi town, Xanadu 2008 really is a fantastic place to base your stay in this area. Spotlessly clean, great air-con, free wi-fi, fantastic food, and a lovely riverside location, you really can't go wrong with this place - and your friendly host Dennis will make you feel right at home....

Quaint little bungalows to stay in and a nice sized pool. Sadly it rained the whole 3 days during our stay but Denis made sure we had trips to Erawan falls and a Elephants World arranged no problem. Food cooked by his wife was superb and they catered well for vegetarians. I was awoken many times during the night by... More

This is a lovely, quiet spot to spend a few days. Don't be put off by the fact it is a bit out of town - getting into town is easy and fun. The rooms, pool area and meals here are terrific. A good selection of beer is ice cold and available all day. With Dennis around, you'll always have... More

Xanadu 2008 is a gem, and I'd consider returning to Kanchanaburi to just stay here again. The owner Dennis is involved in all aspects of running the place, and along with his wife's amazing cooking (better than any other Thai food I had during my travels, and for dirt cheap), he's always available to help plan outings and engage is...

Dennis makes you feel like a visit to a close friend. Great food and perfect location for visiting Erawan waterfalls and Elephant World. During a long day site seeing, it is very pleasant to sit by the pool with a cold beer and chat with Dennis. The resort is around10km from town, 200b one way trip.

The area of the hotel is great. The garden is beautiful, they have a small balcony overlooking the Kwai river, and a nice pool to spend some relaxing time in. Dennis and his wife are very welcoming and kind people, and the food is really great. The hotel is 5-10 minutes drive from Kanchanaburi town. 40 minutes drive from Erawan... More
