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

This is really one of the best places i have stayed in my many years of travelling, your room is actually on a raft on the river Kwai, the place is secluded and mostly very quiet, the food in the restaurant is very good and the staff definitely try their hardest to accommodate your needs. this place is great for...

a very romantic place with a view over the river Kwai and an old suspension bridge. The rather spacious rooms on the raft are well designed and have a big window and a outside space floating just above the waterline.The food in the restaurant could be improved but the location and well maintained garden make up for it many times...

The most magical place I have ever stayed. The raft rooms are to die for. I have to say that there is not to much insulation so there is a noise factor where especially when there are unruly children you hear everything. Other than that the tranquillity and the setting surpass all that is negative. The lapping of the water,... More
