“Beautiful spacious grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is a difficult hotel for me to rate. While the building and grounds are beautiful and spacious, for some reason it falls short of being an excellent place to stay. It could be, as some others have suggested, that it is lack of staff or lack of service. It felt like it was almost deserted, at times. The hotel restaurant was closed for part of our stay, until a conference group came in and it was worth it to them to have it open? Lovely pool bar, and lovely lounge bar, both closed for our entire stay. It gave it a strange sort of desolate feeling.
That said, the room was spacious, the view was lovely, as it is set right on the Kwae River. Food at the River Barge was very good. We felt there was probably a better value for the higher price this hotel requires.

Room Tip: We liked our room looking out over the River Barge on the Kwae River.

My wife and I chose to stay at the DM Resort & Spa for a quick overnight explore of Kanchanaburi and break from Bangkok. The hotel is located around 8 minutes driving time from the main (small) restaurant and bar strip, and 15 minutes from the tourist focal point for the Bridge. The hotel itself is very well maintained and a grand complex with large central swimming pool and lovely outlook over the river itself. We were upgraded to a river-view room on arrival which was huge and very nicely appointed - personal but functional. Given the size of the complex, some rooms (like our river view one) can be quite a walk from the main reception, but its worth it for the absolute peace and quiet. The breakfast was decent and broad, however some of the food options were left to run down 20 minutes before breakfast closes (at 10 am), only to have them all topped up again at 9:59 am.... Interesting. We also had a nice treatment at the spa, which was professional and well-priced. Overall service throughout the hotel was very good. We may stay again based on the quality of the hotel for the price - the only downside is that the distance to any food/drink venues means that one has to be a designated driver, as there is no public truck network readily available to the resort (reception will book you a limo or the gate guard might call his friend, but where does that leave you when you want to come back?!). But in all a very nice place to relax & see some of Kanchanaburi (by car).

Room Tip: Its a big resort with large guest wings so be mindful that some of the rooms are a long way from rec...

The Dheva Mantra is a lovely low rise mock colonial style resort. It is spread over several blocks so always has the appearance of being quiet even if it is busy. However, this can be a negative as the bars and restaurants have a ghostly feeling about them, even on a holiday weekend.
Reception staff are functional but seem to be a little distant and are not as welcoming as you may expect. When I checked out there was absolutely no attempt at any conversation or any interest in the quality of my stay.
The pool area is lovely, especially the small pool bar.
The rooms are a good size with a nice balcony overlooking the immaculately kept gardens.
I would happily return here, it is ideal if you want to be left alone in nice surroundings.
TIP: If you intend to do some work on your stay that involves internet access, don't bother. As other reviewers said, the interenet connection here is woeful. The strength is ok but it disconnects every few minutes.

A great resort, beautiful maintained garden located on the river. Service is friendly and attentive. Please try their Thai restaurant on the river. Location is awesome and the food very good.
A great place to relax from hectic Bangkok.

The hotel is extremely attractive and incredibly peaceful. Great architecture and a pleasure to stay at, especially the corner riverside view rooms we had. Has the wost internet ever though! Literally in 24 hours was booted off about 15-20 times and kept having to re-input the username and password provided at the front. Service was also at best ok in general, same for the spa services. Would probably come back but would have to think about it.

What shall we say? We stayed in a familysuite in july 2013. The room is spacious for the four of us. Beds a clean, and also the bathroom.
The hotel is very nice with good service and restaurants. The pool is great.
Ask the hotel for transport to and from hotel. They arrange it very well.
Take a massage at the relaxing spa.
So, treat yourself and your family well and go here.
