The staff didn't speak English, ut was a challenge to communicate with them and explain what we'd like. What shocked me the most was their lack of customer care. We booked a raft by the river with a little porch by the water which came with two "chaise-longues" but only one of them was dressee with a cushion. When I... More

Stayed here with friends (all early twenties) recently as part of one of their trips. Everything was great, well organised excursions throughout on their 3 day package, and guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The resort itself is great, spacious room, stunning location right on the water, food very good and authentic. Yes, the bathroom isn't 5 star, but its... More

We had a great time here. The kids loved it and so did we. The raft rooms are floating on the river and sitting on the waterfront room terrace was one of the most relaxing times we have spend in Thailand. Meanwhile the kids were floating in the river in their lifejackets from upstream down wards and passing us while... More

The rooms are spacious and clean, located on huts which float on the river Kwai. So far so good....but you have to eat there also and to our big surprise some guests besides us apparently had asked for an ash-tray because that was being put on their table and they started smoking and their smoke drifted over table whilst dining....

The pictures of this resort look amazing however they don't really reflect the how tired the rooms really are which is too bad because the resort has so much potential that just isn't realized. So at the end of the day we'd stay here again but here are the pros and cons..worst first. 1. The dining-room experience is hit or... More

there are various raft resorts provided in Kanchanaburi, but this resort is one of the most popular. it was kinda hard to get the reservation, especially on the weekends, except you make it 1-2 months in advance. When i arrived there , I had no doubt why it's always full. the resort is situated in a good location, you didnt... More

This is a great place to get away from it all. The rooms are a good size with most things you need (I survived without a hair drier for a few days!), with a great veranda to sit and watch the river go by. (The beds are VERY hard, even by Thai standards, by the way!) When the longtails go... More

Admittedly I didn't realise there were two sets of rafts in Nam Tok and this caused some confusion in getting to the right place. I believed we were staying in rafts with no electricity so to have that was a bonus. A lot of what Davidh says is correct. No safe, tv, tea and coffee, soap. And yes there are... More

It might be okay if you know what you are getting. What you will get is a great location, no hot water in the sink, no kettle, no safe, no hair dryer, no plug in the wash hand basin, wafer thin walls so you can hear every word said next door, extremely limited food available, dirty slippers, no soap, holes...
