Stayed 1 night on the 9 November 2012.
We stayed for one night and boy do we bitterly regret it. You need at least two nights to do this place justice.
We arrived after a ten minute trip by long tail boat as this is the primary way for tourists to arrive. After having paid for a trip in one of these boats in Bangkok, to have this ride built into the experience of this place is brilliant. Better than the Bangkok trip.
We stayed in the resort with electricity and mod cons. Apparently the hotel owner has another complex further down river with no electricity etc etc for those that want this experience. I was told that it is always fully booked!
One of the activities is to literally float down river with the flow and experience the "fun" of floating down a fast flowing river. (With life jackets.) The people we saw seemed to be enjoying it no end.
The room we had was comfortable with all the standard stuff. The room opened out onto a decking area on the river with a two seat swing chair and a pair of easy chairs, good for having a drink in hand and watching the river flow by. There were plenty of long tail boats going up and down. We did hear one at 22.00ish.
The bed was hard, but I prefer it like that tho' accept that not everyone will.
The evening meal was very good and the chef should be commended. However, breakfast was a little disappointing. The omelettes could've done with little longer in the pan.
Didn't use room service. No gym. So no comment or stars.
