This place really has nothing going for it except for the pool which is big. The food in the restaurant was uniformly terrible for both breakfast and dinner the two nights we were there. The supposedly romantic dining by the river was not an option since the seating area has no covering - a slight problem during rainy season. But... More

We stayed here for one night as part of our tour. We arrived about 4pm (cold towels and a drink!) and our room was spacious with a view over the pool. The grounds are immaculately presented. Had a bit of an issue with our air con as it suddenly started dripping water all over the floor but we reported it... More

A beautiful hotel located on the River Kwai. Staff super helpful and accommodating. Room was nice, clean and great comfortable bed. Air con was helpful. Pool was great! Food was really nice! I would go back to this hotel if I was in the region again.

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a package tour. The hotel is lovely, the food is good (although not as flavourful as some Thai food) and the pool is amazing. Great location next to the river if you like a bit of peace and quiet but quite far out from Kanchanaburi. There is a shop and a... More

Beautifully located on the River Kwai. Sit and enjoy dinner overlooking the river. Lovely, large river-water pool. Attentive service. Nice rooms if a little outdated in decor. Decent breakfast. Best hotel of four we stayed in in this area.

This "resort" is located very far from the town of Kanchanaburi. I wanted to go out for dinner in one of the restaurants recommended on Tripadvisor / Lonely Planet, and spent 200BHT each way for a taxi ride. The "taxi" (arranged by the hotel) was basically an old and shabby pick-up truck, I was lucky I could sit close to... More

This resort is very nice, beautiful, and calm. The room and shower room is clean. The bed is very comfortable. They serves American Breakfast that is not tasty and variety but still ok. The milk was not be stored in low temperature therefore the taste was not good when we eat with cereal.

Hotelstaff is very friendly -very nice pool- not crowded- local food in hotel is very good. Breakfast was included , continental choice limited. Suggest that they serve freshly squeezed juices and more local fresh fruits. Spa - massage was heavenish! Bed was really King size - bathroom is old but clean

A family visit brought us to this outstanding hotel. Fantastic grounds manicured to make the most of the tranquil setting. A huge pool which is probably one of the best ever. Great rooms with comfortable beds and great service. The restaurant was outstanding we will most definitely be back soon.

We love this resort. This place is definitely a welcoming resort with setting near river bank & with nice garden with lots of miniature figurines on the wall, on the trees, almost everywhere in the resort. We loved the room with balcony over looking the pool & garden. We stayed 2 nights here with my sister & her husband from... More
