Dheva Mantra Resort
Ranked #4 of 81 Hotels in Kanchanaburi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Whoever built this hotel had a dream - to create a timeless colonial hotel of the highest standard.
In my view, it works beautifully and is a wonderful antidote to the grim faced tourists who frequent the obvious tourist hot spots.
The location is adjacent to the River Kwai, in a quiet area . There are rolling grounds, a generous and beautiful pool and smiling staff.
We found it uplifting and amazing value. Our memories of Asia, built up over 40 years is of the type of luxury and service that is unattainable elsewhere, at comparative bargain rates. this is changing and many Thai hotels are now expensive. Not so Dheva Mantra. We had an amazing suite for less that 10,000 B.

Room Tip: Go for a Junior Suite.

We spend 2 nights with my familly in this Resort. The location is amazing and i do like the style of the construction. But when it comes to services and confort i have to say it Was really bad. We ask for an extra bed ( 1500 bahts more per night !!) and we received a camp bed. A piece of Wood with a tiny matela. We ask for too matelas but i couldnt sleep all night. The day after we ask for a solution but they didnt do anything. When i explained another time they were looking at me but didnt understand. They add then a third small matelas but come on this is not normal for a 5 stars Resort! I slept very bad one more time. The FO manager offer the second extra bed for free as solution. At least he did something. Then when we left they were chasing us cause we took a loundry bag and they charge the Credit card !! With all the money we left they did charge us ! For 1 dinner we spend 10000 and the plates were not serve at the same time and some dishes were wrong. Really disapointed.

So for familly i will say dont go but as couple i think it is a good place. The pool is beautiful and the room very big.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Dheva Mantra. The hotel is right on the river Kwai so it has lovely views and the grounds are beautifully landscaped with lots of flowering trees that smell wonderful. It is a very peaceful and relaxing setting. There is a very nice swimming pool and a small play structure for children and lots of walking paths. The hotel has a colonial feel to it and is very tastefully decorated and aesthically pleasing. The rooms are large, spacious and very nicely decorated. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. They really went above and beyond to provide personalized attention and to ensure we were comfortable, happy, and had an enjoyable stay. We ate several meals at the hotel and were very pleased with the food and service. They have a good menu for kids too. My only (minor) complaint was the coffee, which could have been better. Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of this hotel and really enjoyed spending time in such a beautiful and lovely environment. I hope to return soon

We got to the hotel through Tripadvisor. We were a family of 7, mother, father with 3 kids and the grandparents. The hotel is beautiful, peaceful and provides a wonderful location for vacation. Unfortunately we enjoyed only a small part of the facilities since we planned full day trips for the kids.
The Hotel manager, Ms.dang gave us special attention, helped to pack "international" food from the rich breakfast for the 4 years old boy who did not like the local food, so he could eat pasta and hot-dogs at lunch, prepared a birthday cake for grandfather who celebrated his birthday during our visit and organized a cupcake decoration workshop for our kids, which they loved and will remember for a long time.
Thank you everybody.
משהו מיוחד לישראלים - מנהלת המלון היא בעלת שורשים יהודיים וקיבלה אותנו בכבוד של מלכים. אני בטוחה שהיא תשמח לארח ישראלים נוספים וממליצה בחום על המלון והספא.

Are we glad that we chose this hotel when we did. I came down with an ailment. My wife called the manager who put her at ease immediately. He awaited us in the lobby guided us to his waiting van and sent us to a private hospital with the driver as translator. The service we received there was second to none and the manager and his wife were waiting for us when we returned. They and their staff were all concerned.
The facility is spotless and lacks little besides a few more guests. The rooms are great. Service wonderful. Room service came in 20 minutes, piping hot. Laundry was returned within 3 hours. A waiter on the Rice Barge restaurant was the most well trained we have found to date in our tour of Thailand.
What more can I say. A very peaceful, serene environment.

Stayed for a few nights and thought this resort was average at best among "five star" resorts and hôtels. Service was fine...but not outstanding by any stretch. Only one of the two restaurants were open during our stay.The breakfast was very nice...other meals were quite average. Our riverside room was very nice, though we found the couch and chair cushions, to be rather uncomfortable and difficult to really relax in. Our shower also didn't drain properly. This may have been a temporary situation due to the rainy season....and ground saturation....but not sure. We just lived with it. The pool, as others have noted, was very enjoyable and lots of kids were enjoying the fun. The pool bar would benefit from having a few more snacks in addition to the drinks. I think I will explore other options before staying again.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is a beautiful and well maintained facility. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool, which is located with a view of the River Kwai. There is a very nice gym facility, and the spa is also nice. I was a bit worried about the internet service from another review I read, but we had no problem with that at all. The breakfast buffet is included and it really nice. The rooms are spacious, decorated nicely and very clean. The architecture and decor is very nice. I think the hotel capacity is quite large, which is why I think it seems so quiet. We would surely stay here again!!

Room Tip: We needed rooms together with our kids, and that was easy. We just requested this on line when we bo...
