“Amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

Loved it nothing at all to complain about. You can see why they have the number one spot on TA. The resort felt like our private hide away on the river. We definitely loved our stay and hosts Evelien and Djo did a great job making this place the perfect holiday getaway, you could not ask for more from the hosts, who assisted us in organizing transport, making tour suggestions and even day spa appointments. It is a little far from the main town, but worth it, for the peace and tranquility, and its very easy to arrange transport to and from the resort. Our bungalow was comfortable and had a feel of luxury. We had the garden view bungalow , but we could also enjoy the view of the river Kwai from the terrace of the restaurant which also serves good food. Breakfast were delicious, especially the pancakes. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. There's free wifi, a laptop and dvd's available for guests. We also used the resorts safe for our valuables. Would come back to Kanchanaburi again just to stay here.

We stayed an extra night andwished for more time. Serene and beautiful, wonderful spotless accommodations and the best food eaten out since we left the US. Hosts are very kind. Directed us to a Spa that is an absolute must do... Will definitely go back!

We stayed in this stunning litle oasis last August having read the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed! We stayed for 4 nights in one of the river front lodges - the balcony overlooked the river and the room was gorgeous, spacious and spotlessly clean. the owners are incredibly friendly and helpful and assisted us with planning all our day trips (tiger sanctuary and a day at Elephant World highly recommended!!). The restaurant food was great and although it is a little way from the town itself, that really didn't matter at all as the OK will organise any transport that you need for a reasonable fee. We were very sad to leave and hope to return one day - and when we do, we wouldn't stay anywhere else - truly fab!

We stayed for three nights and had a fabulous time. Accommodation was fantastic, food excellent with a wide choice catering for kids and adults, and all at a very reasonable price. The resort is beautifully set up, with wonderful river views and beautiful gardens. We had a spacious family apartment with gorgeous river views, it was very relaxing. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful - you could not ask for more from the hosts who assisted in organising transport, making tour suggestions and even day spa appointments. Plenty of space for kids, but also plenty of opportunity for solitude and quiet relaxation. Highly recommended!

We had only two nights, we should have booked more. I thought that getting to there from Kanchanaburi would be as easy as getting a cab, like Bankok, with no sign of any, a call was made to OK and a pickup arrived in 5 minutes, trip was 15 minutes, Thank you.. OK also organised an affordable (1600 BHT) day trip with driver and lunch to Hellfire pass and elephants, allowed us to do the 2.5 hour hellfire pass walk as the driver picked us up at the other end. The resort is welcoming and very nicely presented, lovely grounds, tastefully decorated and spacious rooms, food and service was excellent, very affordable, highly recommended.

Room Tip: limited number of river views, so expect a garden view, all will be quiet an away for others.

To begin with, The OK is a total oasis in contrast to Kanchanabury city which looks like a wild west type of frontier town. The location by the river is beautiful, the grounds perfectly manicured, the rooms are immaculate, the linen smell delicious, the food is great and the prices incredibly affordable. The owners are helpful but cool. You don't even need to bother preparing your stay in Kanchanabury. They have every possible tour an activity laminated in a binder for your convenience, Evelien is a perfect hostess and we felt that we were visiting friends. This is one of the best hotels (considering value,comfort,beauty) that we have been to and we have traveled the world.
