Took a while to drive from Bangkok to the resort due to bad traffic and a couple of pit stops. Check in was real easy as our rooms are pre-paid. We stayed in room 317 and 318 (first floor of Block C) for 2 nights. The room is spacious with wooden furnishings (as in most furniture in the resort) and... More

Some one commented on how unfriendly the staff were,I can only assume they must have been reviewing a different hotel.All the staff,from the gardeners to reception were eager to please. The location is so relaxing with beautiful gardens all adjoining the river. Food was excellent and the wine not too expensive.The accommodation is spacious and well equipped,only small gripe no...

Pretty basic hotel, the name of the hotel pretends more than it actually is. Restaurant is very good, breakfast is very poor. It's not very expensive, so don't expect much. Good to use it when travelling from one place to another, that's it

I really enjoyed our time here. Came by train from Bangkok ($3 AUD) and enjoyed the scenery on the way. Great food and sized meals. Excellent large pool in very lush settings, by the river. I found the office manager had great English and very helpful and patient with me while trying to organize my own transport to nearby attractions.... More

Stayed here with my family in July for 4 nights, must say if it wasn't for the great pool area we would have left. The manager at reception is the only person that really can communicate effectively in English( yes I know we are in Thailand, however English is the common travel language). She was very helpful in organising tours... More

I traveled through Thailand last year in May for 10 days and I spend two night in here. It was the best place I have stayed in the whole trip. It is outside of the city and getting there wasn't very easy but very worth it. I havent experience accommodation and food as good as I did here in the... More

The resort is really a little heaven on earth, but there are some things to be improved: 1.The staff , especially the reception women in blue dresses, are not polite at all. We ask them about the trips possibilities and they just told us about the taxi prices althought in reception there is a book with all kind od trips... More

I stayed here as part of an organised trip. The rooms are large and clean with everything that you need and the setting is quiet and tranquil in a lovely setting by the river. Anti-mosquito coils are put in the corridor but reception will arrange to have room sprayed if required. Ate at the restaurant by the river one night... More
