We took the train from Thonburi station to Kanchanaburi which was around 2.5 hours of very relaxed travel seeing the countryside. Dennis was expecting us and had some nicely chilled beers ready along with some excellent tips on the best way to get to Hellfire Pass and the Memorial Museum. All day driver in a/c car was the way to... More

Dennis is an awesome host. Staying at Xanadu (as opposed to the town center) is a no-brainer if you have your own transport, since it's so nice and quiet out there. Even if you don't have your own transport, you can get taken to/from town center for 200 baht (if I remember correctly - I didn't actually use this option).... More

Adorable bungalows with ample space, clean, peaceful atmosphere on lovely manicured grounds on the river. We sat on the deck overlooking the river in the evening and morning enjoying the peacefulness of the river and wildlife. We had two rooms that were adjoining for our family of 4. Thai breakfast was delicious. Dennis was always around to answer questions and... More

Dennis and his wife are the most lovely, welcoming people and this place was good value. Rooms were clean, comfortable and a decent size too - plenty of room for an extra bed. Good location - 8KM out of town, right by the river. Easy to drive into town or go by taxi, truck or songtaew. Superb cycling routes nearby.... More

Xanadu has very nice bungalows and a good pool. The owner Dennis is the best host I have ever met and his wife Nee is the best cook of Thailand. Xanadu is the perfect place to stay and from which you can make the must do trips to ElephantWorld and Erawan waterfalls. Dennis can organize a very reliable taxidriver and... More

OK folks you can forget previous comments, this place isn't worth the stay anymore. Why? 1. Nee is not very well, but continues to put a brave face on, she is virtually running the place on her own. 2. Dennis doesn't appear to be around anymore as the place is in need of some desperate maintenance. 3. The pool was... More

We were a party of 8, and stayed at Xanadu 2008 two weeks ago. Our purpose for the visit to Kanchanaburi was to see the famous Erawan Falls, and the Open Safari and Zoo nearby. Well before arriving in Thailand, Dennis (the owner of Xanadu) helped us with everything we possibly needed. He arranged for us a private minibus +... More

I had visited Xanadu in June 2013 as part of our trip to Thailand. Wanting to do an offbeat take on a place which is heavily visited by tourists from all corners of the globe, we zeroed in on Kanchanaburi and the enchanting pictures of Xanadu2008 captured our hearts; we were not disappointed with the actual visit. The property almost... More
