After a full on day of sight seeing we caught a river boat to the Resotel. This was a brilliant speedy ride along the river. The Resotel is in a beautiful setting & so welcoming. We had a lovely lunch & headed to our thatched roof bungalow with, aircon, large bedroom & a wonderful shower. Followed by a cool swim... More

During a 10 day tour of Thailand my group stayed at the River Kwai Resotel on days 4/5. At first, the location frightened me. The fact that you have to take a boat from the mainland to the resort is something I'm not use to. It looked like a scene from a horror movie. However, once we arrived, the location... More

We traveled here as part of a tour group, after leaving Bangkok. As we arrived it started to rain but did not spoil anyone's excitement to ride in long boats to get to our resort. The property is beautiful with AMAZING views and rustic charm while still offering us modern conveniences. These beautiful thatched huts are inviting with air conditioning,... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night as part of an overnight trip to the River Kwai area. We travelled by coach from Bangkok, stopping at the Bridge Over the River Kwai and the Death Railway Museum before taking a boat trip to the River Kwai Resotel. The accommodation is in small hut rooms spread around a central... More

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
