I recently had a lovely 3 days here and I am more than happy to recommend it to all and sundry.
We booked a family bungalow with two bedrooms and whilst not 5 Star accommodation it is more than adequate. The rooms were large and spotless and there was a TV & DVD player in one and a bathroom with included toiletries in both. The AC worked very well and we got a good nights sleep every night.
Denis & Nee were great hosts and had plenty of time for all of the guests and we were all made to feel very welcome. Denis shares my love of wildlife and it was nice to chat with him about the many animals that proliferate around the resort and area in general. There are plenty of things to see in the beautifully manicured grounds.
My daughter and I really enjoyed our daily (sometimes more often) swims in the pool which is handily placed next to the restaurant/bar. The food was very tasty and the portions were incredibly generous also.
I especially enjoyed a few quiet beers on the riverside terrace in the early evening. It's a beautiful spot at any time of the day but particularly so at dusk when many birds are passing overhead on their way back to the roost. It was also great to see the resident owl perched on his favourite branch in the twilight.
The resort is a way out of the main town but there is a taxi driver pretty much resident so if you do need to get anywhere it's not too much trouble at all. This is a really lovely spot and I will definitely stay again when next in Kanchanaburi.
