We had a great stay of one night at the Oriental Kwai and wished it had been longer! The lodges are beautifully laid out amongst trees and each retain their privacy. One or two overlook the river as does the restaurant where we enjoyed a splendid dinner at reasonable prices. Most reasonably priced wine we found in Thailand. Smoothies to... More

I went there in March 2014. I stayed in family room suite. It was at best cost. The atmosphere was so relaxing. The room was neatly decorated in Oriental style and clean. Breakfast was okay with River Kwai view. I really love it!!!

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014, with my daughters and their partners, we had a bungalow each. We all loved this hotel and truly didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. The owners are so helpful and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them to organise. The... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The setting is stunning whether you are in a bungalow by the riverfront or not. Our bungalow felt private and was well equipped with a fridge, TV, DVD player, kettle, air con and a ceiling fan. The bathroom had a great shower with plenty of hot water.... More

I truly loved my stay here at Oriental Kwai. I was only here for one night in transit but wish I could have stayed longer. The grounds are very lush and they have friendly pet dogs (not strays) to greet you. The resort also sits above the river and has a wonderful view of it from the restaurant. Each room... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort! The river front cottage had a beautiful and serene view. Service was excellent, friendly, and personable. Accommodations were very comfortable. We did not want to leave! No need to go anywhere else for meals because the food served here was delicious and the atmosphere on the dining patio was amazing! A truly... More

We stayed over Chinese New Year, having extended three nights to avoid Bangkok. We were overjoyed to relax in this lovely resort and could not fault it in any way. We had a room (bigger than our flat) overlooking the river. We found it all very peaceful. The owners were extremely helpful and the food was excellent. It was humbling... More

First let me start by saying how great the place is. The service is absolutely first class and so is the bedroom and the food. We had a bungalow overlooking the river which was tremendous but whichever room you choose you wouldn't be disappointed. The gardens are immaculate and the pool cool, clean and inviting although it's terribly slippy so... More

This resort is located 20 minutes outside Kanchanaburi town and we certainly have booked somewhere closer to town had we not found the Trip Advisor reports - and what a treat we would have missed! This 10 cottage resort is located in pleasant countryside on the banks of the river kwai. It is managed, with a combination of professionalism and... More
