We found Xanadu 2008 on a website and it looked like a great place to stay. It was better than our expectations! We travelled from Bangkok as a family of 4 and Xanadu was just perfect for our stay. The rooms were great & the location was just what we wanted having been travelling for 6 weeks around the world.... More

We loved this place and the owner/operators. It's a little out of the way but it is on the river. Taxis cost 200 baht in or out and there are always taxis on the property as the owner Duncan, a very smart man, employs the taxi drivers to do odd jobs during their down time so they are always available!!...

We had a great stay at Xanadu 2008 . Dennis and Nee are excellent hosts and the food was lovely . Dennis was very helpful with information about excursions and booked our transport back to Bangkok for us at a very fair price . We would definitely stay at Xanadu 2008 again.

We got to Xanadu more or less by accident. We had booked for another hotel. When we arrived Dennis the owner/manager greeted us and from there on the papmpering started. Whatever is was we wanted or needed, Dennis was there to help. Tickets to elephant world, tips to have a good experience at the river Kwai. You name it. Eating... More

Easy to locate resort as there was big sign along the road. Nice cosy place to relax & chill. Room is big and also a pool to cool down. You can have your meal by the river. Dennis was always there to offer your help. A place that value for money.

As most of the other reviews point out the Xanadu is a peaceful haven 10 minutes fom Kanchanaburi. We only stayed one night as we were on a tight schedule; most hotels don't get too involved with 'one nighters' but Deniis and Nee were very welcoming. Dennis really makes an effort to get to know his guests and our stay... More

You know you are onto a good thing when most of your bookings are returning guests and thats exactly what happens at Xanadu. We stayed last month for 3 nights, great location and good grounds, jungle chickens & lizards share the grounds with you, it also backs onto the river kwai. Great hospitality, Dennis even took us for lunch to... More

We stayed at Xanadu for 4 nights over the Easter holidays. Well I just don't know where to begin. After arriving by the local train from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi we were given a warm welcome from Dennis. For the whole 4 nights we stayed at Xanadu we felt nothing was too much trouble for Dennis or his Thai wife Nee.... More

a nice quiet hotel not far from the famous bridge, the food at the hotel was excellent, probably the best food we had during our trip around Thailand. the hotel is in a very nice location overlooking a river, a taxi will soon turn up to take you into the main town, Dennis was a very good host

clean and cosy bungalow houses in a well kept garden, Xanadu is perfect for families and couples. Location wise, it's away from town, so private transport is needed to travel back and forth. The landlord is friendly and helpful, so it makes arrangements of tours and travel easy.
