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.

Dennis was a perfect host when my family and I visited. The river is at the back of the property and is shallow enough to wade into a bit. The food at Xanadu was very good as well. Our hosts also guided us to the best places in Kanchanaburi to eat, visit and explore. The next time we're in Kanchanaburi... More

We stayed a couple of nights in December and couldn't fault it. Our bungalow was a decent size and extremely clean and had everything we needed... Well there was no tv channels but hey who needs tv when you're right on the river ?! There were plenty of DVDs to borrow for free though! Owner very friendly, helped us out... More

If you just don't wanna stay in the center of Kanchanaburi this little place is great for you. It's a 10 minutes drive to the famous bridge and situated in a lovely garden setting in the countryside right on the river. It has a pool which is really nice since it was over 40 degrees Celsius at the end of... More

First of all we arrived at Xanadu as a mistake our taxi driver made but it turned out to be an extremely good mistake! Our other accomadation was another hour and a half drive and we were exhausted. Dennis and his wife were found to be extremely accommodating offering us lodging for a 1000baht a night. Taxi service into the... More

Only stayed the one night we were going to Hellfire Pass. Had a family bungalow , excellent, with two bedrooms and separate bathrooms. Lovely resort with only 10 bungalows, swimming pool and a really nice bar/ dining area beside the pool. Denis is a wonderful host, he organised taxis for us to Hellfire Pass and to Khanchanaburi and recommended a... More
