We stayed at the River Kwai Resotel for 3 nights in a deluxe room from 23 - 26 March 2014. I would highly recommend this hotel for the adventurous way of getting there (10 minutes up a river in a long boat), also the great staff, rooms and variety of food available. The deluxe room was on the top floor... More

We loved the resort for its location and character. You feel like you are in the jungle, the arrival is by a 10 minute boat ride. We were there for two nights, perfect. We had activities planned, but their staff is very helpful. We did ride bikes to the Lawa caves, fun but a little scary that we could get... More

We stayed 2 nights at this resort as part of a tour with Gate 1 Travel. When we were told that it was only accessible by boat, we had no idea what to expect. All I can say is - WOW! The ride up the river in the longboat past spectacular scenery was just the beginning of an amazing adventure.... More

This hotel amazed me from the beginning. You feel so close to the humid jungle when you stay in your little cute bungalows. Like Tarzan and Jane. The River Kwai runs directly near the hotel garden. Oh.. the garden. It is a poem. The perfect place for reposal and relaxing, totally off the world. If you are stressed from the... More

The boat ride on the river to our hotel was a great start to our stay! Beautiful scenery and cool breeze off the water helped us enjoy our stay during this very hot time of year. We had great service and the food was good. The breakfast option were not very broad but adequate. The service during dinner was a... More

What a great place to relax, very friendly staff, fantastic surrounds, accommodation, meals and pool were great. I heard people say two nights was not long enough, I stayed for four and could have stayed longer, if you want to sit around the pool and have a relaxing holiday and do NOTHING - this is the place for you. I... More

We stayed at the River Kwai Resotel as part of a two day tour from Bangkok. Our room was a cute thatched cottage in a tropical garden setting. The staff are extremely friendly, meals are excellent and there is a great atmosphere and ambience. A good stopping point for visiting the Bridge over the River Kwai, He'll Fire Pass, etc.

As part of a wonderful Gate 1 tour of Thailand we visited the River Kwai Resotel. It was totally unexpected & absolutely delightful. Access was only by boat. After a brief ride down the river we arrived at the jungle compound. We stayed in our own hut (with modern electricity & plumbing) just a short walk from the common areas... More

What a wonderful experience staying in the River Kwai Resotel in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. First of all, it was in a beautiful garden setting in the jungle on the River Kwai. Every couple had a large private cottage with a porch and all amenities. Beautiful pool and lodge area with restaurant having great food. The only complaint we had was the... More
