This place is amazing the beauty of the lush landscape so serene very well taken care of properly with a friendly staff and a decent restaurant. They do offer several massage packages we tried for 2 1/2 hours and still can't tell you if it was worth the money as the massages are done above the pool area in the...

Very quaint and peaceful hotel surrounded by nature and nice view of the river. Rooms are quite uniquely designed and decent size. However, the air con is a bit noisy and wooden floors require some repairs. Do note that the resort is very deep in the jungle area n far from the main roads so the drive into the resort...

Loved the location, it's an exciting journey to get there taking the boat a short ride up the river. The facilities and rooms were all lovely but personally I wasn't a fan of the evening entertainment. Covers of YMCA in the jungle weren't really my cup of tea :D

It would have been a nice place to visit if the owner invested some money in the property. Rooms are very outdated and the shower we had was full of ants and smelled horrible. The towels were ancient and worn thin. There is only one restaurant that didn't even try to offer delicious food. They show pictures of food that...

Dear KMGDelta, Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Kanchanaburi. We feel really sorry that you did not like our foods. In fact, the pictures can be slightly different especially the plate decoration but the food is definitely the same. Thai famous stir-fried dishes are almost all alike, unlike Western dishes. We’ve checked the room and...

Be mindful of where you are. Swim in the hotel pool. Nature can be wonderful or you can fill and see the creepy crawly things. The hotel is on the River Kwai. There is everything tropical or jungle with green gardens, mountains, sounds of the night, and bugs. The cabins are very good. Learn where the light and air condition...

We spent our last night in town here and we wished we would have found it sooner. The room and the grounds were beautiful. The location was a little out of the way but the services offered made up for it.

Great and beautiful location. The wifi was not working, so no internet access at the resort. Prices of the stay are super high, for Thai standards. We had a room with 3 beds, for 3 persons, but only 2 towels, 2 glasses, 2 soap, etc. No welcome drink. Orange juice at breakfast is sugary orange lemonade. Alltogether, this resort was...

This Resort is quite unique. We traveled here by boat and stayed in a Thatched Roof Cottage. It was somewhat "tired" but somewhat comfortable. There was a "reasonable" breakfast, included, and a fairly priced dinner available.

Situated on a river it gives the impression of being well away from civilization, my impressions come from one a night stay, we took in our suit cases when we should have taken just overnight bags. It appeared that the bulk of residents were over 40. 3 days relaxing would have been nice. Food was good, internet worked for us,...
