The accommodation in a little stand alone cabin was lovely. The location alongside the river was tranquil interrupted only by the boats with the truck engines. Wouldn't bother with a massage again although they perhaps just need more experience or training. The tours associated with the lodge were OK although for the trip from Bangkok you are combined with groups... More

To access the resort, you have to take a short trip in a small traditional river taxi, offering awesome views of the Kwai. The rooms are nice enough, and the buffet breakfast is great, however the buffet meals are basically the same everyday, so beware for a longer stay. The pool is a quite small for the amount of people,... More

Located near the Kwai River, and only accessible taking a typical Thai long boat to cross it, the hotel is standing on a very surprising and charming spot, in the middle of the jungle. Honestly, the location is the only positive thing I can tell about the hotel, because for the rest, everything is a non sense. The bungalows are... More

3 days and 2 nights are simply not enough! It is truly a peaceful paradise. A great escape from the concrete jungle. Getting here is quite "adventurous, proper research is recommended as it is quite far from Kanchanaburi city center. The bungalow is spacious, there was a slight smell in the toilet but after turning out the shower it was... More

What an amazing hotel! We stayed here for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. My favorite thing to do here was to just walk the grounds looking at beautiful plants and wildlife. Took an hour cruise on the river too. Cant wait to go back! Pros: Heated pool. Amazing grounds to explore. Cheap massages. Unique rooms. Cons:... More

Our stay at the River Kwai Resotel was the highlight of our Thailand trip. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The view was surreal and the entire resort was beautiful. We definitely want to go back!❤

If calm among the greenery and the bank of a great river is what you are looking for, then this is the place. The rooms are spacious, very private (they are individual bungalows), and very clean. The staff is very friendly (mostly from the nearby Mon Village) and the food is well prepared. Breakfast, although very decent and varied, was... More

The Resort was well located in the Jungle at the bank of River Kwai. The experience of check-in time to Resort from pier by boat is really amazing. Please be aware that the last boat's departure time to Resort is 06:00 PM. Buffet breakfast is average but acceptable. Most of the staff can't speak in English very well and there... More

I stayed here with my husband and a friend during our short trip to visit Erawan Waterfall. We booked a room with 1 extra bed with forest view. The room was quite nice, comfy and surrounded with a lot of trees around, enough to make our room feel cool even without Air Condition, but the extra bed was far away... More

Not for the faint of heart. You arrive via boat to this hotel and there are bugs, geckos and every other living creature you'd expect on River Kwai. There's also charm and a friendly staff and a spa! The food is very tasty, more than you'd imagine a buffet to be. My only warning is be extremely careful if planning... More
