This is a fun place to stay with rooms floating on the river, each with a little 'terrace' and a little raft on the river. We sat on on the balcony, protected from insect life by repellant, drinking G&Ts watching the sun go down. The rooms are large and the bathroom area adequate. I enjoyed the evening meal offered on...

The raft room was much better than the main building room in sense of interior, furniture n fittings eventho both rooms rate were the same. The main building room is really old n at a deplorable state. It has a tv which raft rooms doesn't have n... More

The first day I was here was nice, peaceful. I loved the atmosphere. The food portion was huge even for locals. The taste was pretty good. But on our 2nd day, a group of people came in. They sang karaoke non-stop. I did ask about this begore making a booking. A receptionist said that we didn't have karaoke nights. Well,... More

We stayed at this resort for 1 night. The river is fast flowing with kids jumping off the rickety bridge into the river and then riding the strong current down to shore. We tried to cross the bridge however the timber has seen better days and we thought better of it after stepping out about 5 metres. Food was delivered... More

It really depends on what is your expectation. Value to money - great, paid THB 2,000 for a room including breakfast per night (2 pax) Location - great, if your room is the one floating in the river, then you are connected to the river from the bamboo deck outside your room. Probably, this is the main strength of the... More

Not being previously familiar with he geography, we didn't fully comprehend that the resort was a 90 minute bus ride from Kanchanburi town. Once we visited, we learned that was the beauty of it. The resort's floating rooms were not really floating, as we visited in February, when the water level was really low. Sitting on the patio of your... More

It was a really good accomodation on river Kwai. It was clean, comfortable well equipped, etc. Only thing to mention regarding the room that on one of the unused bed was not clear with lot of hair on it. The hotel is almost in th middle of nowhere (far from Kanchanaburri), but its restaurant is good, tasty and not expensive... More

We spent 3 lovely days at the resort in Feb 2015. We just loved this small boutique hotel. First of all, the location is very beautiful. Old bridge, nice garden small and charming floating rooms & main building. The place is well run with very nice and capable staff. The rooms are nice, made from dark wood with nice basic... More
