It was almost a year ago we ended up in Oriental Kwai after the Icelandic Volcano forced us to stay in Thailand one extra week. However it turned out to be one great week! We booked the beatiful family bungalow by the river, then we went out rafting which was great fun (if you have the stamina). I also fully recommend to book a taxi and go to the seven steps waterfall (preferably early in the morning), it is amazing.
The hotel was easily the best I visited in Thailand and the surroundings are beautiful, please note that this is a small family hotel and not a huge Sheraton.
