Stayed here for 3 nights. Lovely setting along the river Kwai. Rooms big clean & good size bathroom. Very comfortable. Breakfast on the decking above the river. Lovely pool. Everyone friendly. Lovely gardens. Dennis really helpful for advice on local attractions. Elephant sanctuary is a must do. Ride the train over the bridge. Great holiday. My second visit.

Great resort in a beautiful location on the river. Dennis is a friendly knowledgable host who gives excellent local advice on attractions etc. His wife Nee cooks amazing, fresh Thai food at great value for money, a super place to return to and enjoy a cool beer by the river or pool. The Tuk Tuks are 200baht into town which... More

As the first of four stops on our Thailand trip, we spent a little less than a week with Dennis at Xanadu. We were 14 people and was extremely well taken care of. Rooms are big with big bath rooms, beds are a bit hard but ok, AC in all rooms (and they are functioning:-)) and the pool area is... More

Stayed at Xanadu for a couple of nights in October as a base for exploring attractions around Kanchanaburi such as Elephant World, Hellfire Pass, War Cemetry and Erawan Waterfalls. Rooms were a good size and very clean and included fresh flowers every day. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Location very picturesque. Would definitely stay here again if we ever... More

Fantastic Stay We had 5 fantastic nights at Xanadu. Dennis is a great host and very friendly with good advice what to see, and what not to see. The boatride he recommended from the Bridge to a cave and the war cemetery was excellent with great value. He also helped us with transfer from the airport, and on to Koh... More

We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at Xanadu in December as part of our 6 night layover between Australia and home in England. Our bungalow was very comfortable and roomy and very good value for money. The bed was good and the air conditioning excellent. A large fridge provided us with cold drinks. The bathroom was spacious with... More

This was all and more than we expected. Dennis and his lovely wife looked after us well and the accommodation was clean and set in a quiet location, close, but not in the city of Kanchanabri. As described by others, the food was delightful, freshly cooked and well priced. The pool was great to cool off. We visited because we... More

This was our second visit to Xanadu because we loved it so much last time so wanted more time. This is an area that people rush in and out of but there is so much more and this is a great base as Denis has such a good knowledge of the area and can arrange any travel you require. His... More

There's only a few rooms (cottages) so expect a very quiet and peaceful environment to stay in. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Place is not near town so you need a transport. It has a swimming pool at the checkin area and the food is very nice.

Highly recommended. It is not a startlingly beautiful place but it has exactly what you need. The villas or whatever they are called are spartan but totally practical and in order. Great showers. The pool and restaurant area is fantastic if you have kids. You can sit about, read, eat, drink all while keeping an eye on the kids. A... More
