I cannot mention this enough. If you are coming to Pung Wan Resort in Sai Yok Kanchanaburi independently, please do hire a car from Kanchanaburi or a driver. While they will pick you up from the train station, the resort is about 3km from the main road and is full of uphills without much shade. I know this as walking was what we had to resort to after coming back from a day out.

The signs to the place are terrible (faded and very discreet) and you will not be able to move arond Sai Yok to any places of interest, or in fact any place outside Pung Wan resort without paying through your nose. For example, for 3 pax to travel about 9km away to the River Kwai Village Hotel (for an event) they wanted to charge us close to THB 1000.

I did enjoy the river views I got in Room 128 athough the rest of the rooms were just average. Nothing overly spectacular or memorable about the hotel. The waitresses in the restaurant spoke English to enable us to communicate as per the reception. The food in the restaurant was average. In fact, everythng in the hotel is average.

Its fine for an overnight stay - just ensure you have transport or be willing to walk in the hot hot Thai sun.

We stumbled upon Pund-Waan quite by accident - It is a little out of town and you might need private transport - we had a hire car so it suited us and we used it as a base for day trips to Hellfire Pass and the district - the resort is pretty typical of asian up market places - 3+ star - The rooms were spacious and clean - was quite time whilst we were there - appears that most guests are on package tours - arrive by bus in evening and gone again next morning - the pool was relaxing - meals were OK but nothing special - staff somewhat distant as may be expected in a larger hotel - We would go back but might have a bit of a look around first - Had no problems with security as there is a guarded entry gate - grounds and facilities would suit a family

We stayed in this beautiful resort for one night during our roundtrip through Thailand. Tired after a long busride and desperate for a cooldown, we got ourselves in the pool only minutes after arrival. Later that evening we noticed 2000 baht missing from our wallets, someone having access to our rooms (which were locked at the time) stole a total of 4000 THB and sought through several suitcases while we were relaxing in the pool. After notifying the staff, the general manager of the resort was contacted, but did not believe the story and refused to investigate the matter among his personnel, so the police was notified. Only the morning after the forensic investigation took place in the middle of the night, the assistant manager offered us to return the money someone, most probably among their own staff, took from our wallets.

The resort itself is beautiful with the river Kwae running right along it. Breakfast was good and the drinks affordable. Shame this incident ruined our experience at this place.

I am writing this review so that anyone reading this is aware of the possibility that this resort has one or more staffmembers among its personnel taking advantage of people only staying in the resort for a short period of time. Stealing a portion of the amount of money in wallets, only hoping that you find out the next day while you are on the move again.
