From arrival to departure it's impossible to ignore the tranquility and efficiency of this small, cozy resort. The small villas are really comfortable and even the dogs are welcoming, and they are very friendly. Evelien ensures the place runs really well, and the morning breakfast and meals are very tasty. The location of the resort next to the River Kwai... More

We visited this resort in 2011 and loved it. We came back last month and it was still as beautiful, clean, comfortable and well organised as five years ago!! The garden and interior of the cottages are amazing, the swimmingpool is lovely and the food is good! Staff and owners Evelien and Djo are helpful and kind. The resort is... More

This little boutique resort is a great combination of elegance and relaxation. I stayed here for one weekend while visiting Kanchanaburi and it was nearly my favorite part of my experience. The staff makes it very easy to get to a variety of places within the province and they even helped me find a place for a Thai massage in... More

There should be a 6 star option on TA or a golden buzzer of sorts and this place deserves them both. In our 6 years travelling throughout SEA this is the best place we stayed in. It is clear that the owners did not build this place from scratch to make a quick buck, but instead built this place to... More

This was my third stay at the Oriental Kwai and this resort continues to impress. The small family run resort is located about 20 minutes by taxi outside Kanchanaburi city. It makes an excellent base for exploring the area; I visited the Erawan Waterfalls, Hellfire Pass and also made a longer trip to Sangkhla Buri. The resort, located on the... More

This is a beatuful, extremely well maintained property. It's super clean- both inside the rooms and grounds. The staff is always cleaning, sweeeping or picking up and it allows this river front property to shine. My family of four escaped Bangkok for quick respite before travelling to Koh Samui. We booked a larger room right on the river front. It... More

We spent 4 days at this wonderful hotel, located in very quiet and beautiful nature, along the river Kwai. We very much appreciated the very high standards of amenities and service , it was like every one of our wishes was taken care of before we even had a chance to voice them out. The restaurant offers such good food... More

This place is perfect. Great food. The pancakes were a winner with the kids. Delicious fresh fruit. Yummy smoothies. Comfortable rooms. Attention to detail in every aspect of decor. Stunning surroundings. Peaceful surrounds so close to facilities. Great service. Super helpful with ideas for activities and organizing tours. I hope one day we will return.

I read all the reviews, didn’t quite believe them, and then I went there. The Oriental Kwai Resort was an oasis nestled on a compound in Kanchanaburi. I went there with my family of five and we comfortably stayed in one of their family bungalows. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and the setting was fantastic. We walked the grounds, swam... More
