“Wonderful stay in little paradise”
Reviewed July 12, 2010

Xanadu 2008 with Dennis and Nee was a wonderful experience from the communication before until the service delivered for the drive back to Bangkok.
The very nice and quiet location at the River Kwai, the nice rooms and the wonderful pool are always there. But then there are Dennis and Nee and their staff who are so helpful and kind to organise trips and make you feel at home instantly. Nee's kitchen delivers the best of Thai cooking at very fair prices. This is a pleasant service at a very high level! W'll definitely go back when we are in the area.

Stayed for one night in june and wish we had time to stay longer! Dennis and Nee were lovely and very accomodating, plus the food was to die for. Can't recommend enough for a very personal stay

Dennis and Nee are wonderful! We agree with others who have recommended this hotel. Nee makes the best food we have ever tasted in Thailand. The atmosphere there is frendly and easy. Everything was perfect!

Xanadu 2008 is a beautifully designed place in an outstanding location. With only 12 cottages, it's green with a great view of the river. Dennis, the host, is extremely gracious and makes the stay an absolute joy. The resort is less than a year old, and is spic and span. It's great value for money vs staying at a big non-personal hotel

At the time of our visit, the resort was less than 1-year old, so the air-conditioned bungalows were new and in great condition. The bungalows are spacious and very well built. The bungalow was thoughtfully designed to ensure insects don't get in. There are no mosquito nets in the room, but they don't seem to be needed as there doesn't seem to be an issue with mosquitoes in the bungalows. The room decor isn't the traditional Thai style you may see in most places around Thailand and didn't appeal to our senses but it really didn't bother us as everything else about this resort was perfect. Since the resort is still getting established, we can only imagine the decorations will improve. At the time of our visit, little things like night tables were still not there, but we are sure will be added in the future. The bed was hard but the pillows and comforter were very soft and comfortable. There was a TV in the room, but no cable/satellite at the time of our stay. There was a DVD player in the room and Dennis has a wide selection of DVDs you can borrow. The bathroom was also very spacious. Potpourri was placed in the bathroom to gave it more of a homely feel. No toiletries were included but a bar of soap was provided.


The bungalow was very clean. Bed sheets, towels, floors and bathroom were all very clean. The towels had a few small stains on them, but they were very soft and clean. The gardens at the resort were beautifully maintained. The large swimming pool and the restaurant were also very clean and well maintained. It's very apparent that the owners take great pride and care into running this resort.


The price was fantastic, the accommodation comfortable and the service was great. We truly felt welcomed by friends rather than by strangers. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again as it's going to be hard to find a better value of accommodations in this area.

Our family stayed with Dennis and Nee in early April, 2010. Xanadu is situated on a lovely block, sloping down to the river. Photos on their website don't do the gardens and locale justice, it is very picturesque! Bungalows are spotless, not overly large though more than adequate for our needs. Dennis and Nee are most friendly and welcoming with an informal manner, and made our stay very pleasant indeed. Our only regret regarding our stay at Xanadu was not sampling what came out of the kitchen, it looked delicious! Xanadu is a friendly no frills collection of bungalows situated about 10km from Kanchanaburi centre, as we rented a car to get us about some of the many local attractions, that was of no importance to us. Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our time at Xanadu.
