The hotel was fine. Rooms were a bit worn but clean. The shower water was kind of a trickling stream. I actually appreciate the fact that the rooms were located in cottages on the hotel grounds, not on the river, because I felt that was better for the environment (but was it really? I am not sure.) The food was...

We have been here twice. We live in Bangkok but are actually nature lovers. Yes, we have our own vehicle which makes it easy, but for us it's an escape. Within walking distance is a cave. The stalactites are well lit and the steps up to the cave make it an easy climb, although quite steep. Nearby are elephant rides...

The first thing that should be noted is that while this place is set in a beautifully location it is very remote so those traveling without guides and drivers (like we were) may want to consider an alternative. It is a good hour and half taxi journey from Kanchuburi (80km). This journey will set you back around 1000 baht and...

We just returned from a two day trip at the River Kwai Resote, l While planning our two week trip to Thailand, we found out about this place by accident. We decided to check it out because it looked so beautiful. The hotel arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport in Bangkok. It was about a...

The River Kwai Resotel is a very peaceful stay. You take a boat to get to and from the resotel so your options are really limited to what you can do. The excursions through the resotel are of course, very expensive. The Tiger Temple was ~$150/person through the resotel. We got a taxi and went on our own for ~$45/person....

Dear Pavaht T, Thank you for your recent stay at River Kwai Resotel. First of all, thank you for your compliment to our resort location. However, we are quite puzzled about some of your comments like ‘extremely public’. We understand that you are referring to the location of your room. However, from our investigation, your private chalet was located away...

I had visited this floatel some months back and it was just an unforgettable experience. It is quite far from Kanchanburi but it is all worth finding it.

This was a last minute, poorly-researched booking.. but one that I was SO happy to have stumbled upon. The boat ride up to the hotel is a great way to start, very convenient, minimal wait. Super-friendly and helpful staff, great food, clean and nicely decorated, private cabins. Close to a number of interesting venues like the Tiger Temple and Hellfire...
