Very nice experience to stay in a hotel like this. You find yourself in the middle of nature with no electricity. While we’re used to luxury hotels, this experience stays in our mind. It is a mixture of a great nature experience and some essential history of the area. The hotel is run by the habitants of the nearby Mon...

After a couple weeks in Thailand, some of our best memories are from this really cool hotel that offers a wildly different experience. I'm not sure how it compares to the other raft "floatels" up and down the river, but you should definitely book one of them and enjoy this strange and fun place. If you haven't gathered from the...

During the day this place is heaven, relaxing in your own personal hammock on private balcony or sunbathing in a lounger on the pontoon you can forget about the modern world and home life and simply take in the surroundings of the river and jungle. Floating down the river is fun and relaxing, the water is warm and you are...

The resort was very clean, neat and simple. There were lots of lovely tropical hanging plants and flowers around the float houses. There was no electricity but it was alright. Though it was too hot at night.

fantastic getaway from the buss of the city. back to nature, relaxation and finding yourself. rustic, great people, great food. do note that there are no fans in the room and it tends to get a little warm at night, so perhaps you can arm yourself with a usb fan or something. also the resort has no power, and charging...

Nature, water, river, please don't forget to take a book. it's a very peaceful and beautiful hotel floating by the river, but if you need electricity this resort is not for you. They will provide you a Electric Torch Lamp, and a powerbank to charge your phone. Rooms are ok but quite dark.

This place is certainly an unusual experience - but we just didn't feel welcome. It was as if we were encroaching and the staff found it a bit too much trouble to be bothered with us. Such a shame, because the actual hotel is amazing - but it lacks the traditional thai hospitality and smiles that we are used to....
