I read lots of differing reports about this resort. But still decided to go as it was a week that was available as a timeshare transfer for Chinese New Year. I organised a transfer/ tour company to pick us up from the airport and requested a stop off at Tesco to take groceries like milk, bread, fruit, cheese, crackers water... More

Hotel has very impressive reception and lobby. Restaurant is lovely. Resort has many small wooden houses. You get “a taxi” to drive in&out from the reception. We stayed there only one night. It is enough. Shower is strange, I felt there uncomfortable. It does not have tiles just stones. Also plenty of mosquitos and we were in a dry season.... More

The Legacy River Kwai is a "resort" (for want of a better word) to be missed. It is miles from anywhere and transport, the whole place is very tired and in need of a facelift. To be fair, I went there on a last minute booking over New Year, as everything else was booked out. I now know why they... More

We were disappointed as they did not deliver. We rented a motorcycle and were able to find it with the aid of my phones gps. However, the... More

We were there for a church retreat. Great landscaping and good bungalow accommodations for the price. Some bungalows are undergoing renovations and the spa and massage have been closed, but this place is huge! No cable TV, but walking about is enjoyment enough. Very mice staff and many with good English. The meals (buffet style) were quite good with a... More

Having travelled some seriously stressful hours from Bangkok my Wife and i were looking forward to our stay at the legacy river kwai resort. The resort was great, really well laid out and the staff were extremely helpful. Unfortunately the hot water does not run hot in many areas of Thailand at all and it would appear that our room...

We arrived on Saturday 05 October 2013, after driving around Kanchanaburi for 2 hours looking and asking where it was. It is actually 35 Kms from the town centre, in the middle of nowhere. We had our grandchildren with us, and they had to sleep on the floor as there were no beds available for children. The food in the... More
