We loved our 2 nights at this hotel. The rooms are large and very clean and the owner is really welcoming and helpful. There is a lovely area to sit right by the river, very charming. The food is fantastic, I highly recommend sharing theTom Yum soup, it is outstanding!!!! We would definitely stay here again :)

Stayed here in a family bungalow with my wife, daughter and son-in-law. The bungalows are set in beautiful gardens about 20 mins outside of Kanchanaburi . Situated right next to a secluded part of the river, it is worth the 200bht taxi ride which Dennis the owner will call for you 20 mins before you want it. The food is... More

I chose this hotel because even though it was a little out of town it had a good trip advisor score and Dennis, the manager was supposed to be very helpful. Usually when I have such high expectations I am disappointed. This is not the case here. The food was the best I have had in Thailand. The garden is... More

Beautiful bungalows, lovely central living area that is very friendly and has that's needed. A cheerful, friendly knowledgable ex-pat host, Dennis. A little out of town but that was a plus for us. Quick taxi ride. Ideal place to relax before, or after, a trek. ANd if you like staying put, this is a nice place to do that also... More

Wow, this place blew me away. Lovely big bugalows (dated but it doesn't matter) beautifully quite just the sound of the nearby wildlife that surrounds this place. The couple who own it are so friendly and helpful. The food is out of this world! Best prawns I've ever had. I'm still dreaming about them now mmmmm, prawns. Stay here :-)

This place is beautiful. The grounds are well kept, the pool clean, the rooms clean and fresh towels every day. The owners were friendly and helpful despite being short staffed. Dennis, the owner, arranged transport for us to town that cost 200 baht. Though there is nothing much vegetarian on the menu, they were able to accommodate us. I did... More

This is a superb location on the shores of the River Kwei, a 200bht Songthaew ride out of Kanchanaburi and a short walk to a small friendly settlement with an interesting Wat. Dennis is the most hospitable of hosts, always on call to help with transport suggestions and organisation. The food is really excellent, Thai with rather British helping sizes!... More

The hotel is a surprising find along a pretty desolate stretch of road. The grounds are well kept and the pool attractive. The setting right along the river is quite beautiful. I ordered what ended up to be way too much food - I think I was fooled by the prices for $10. At suggestions I had on bug spray... More

We had rented out a family bungalow and 2 premier rooms at Xanadu. Dennis has kept the place absolutely stunning, having built it himself. This is a perfect place if you're on a honeymoon, or in a group, or just a couple looking to have a serene time there. Dennis was also kind enough to let us use his kitchen... More
