Situated right on the river itself in the midst of lush tropical forest, all well-appointed floating lodges are artistically designed with simple elegance, fully equipped with quality amenities.

To conserve the natural ambience, instead of the electricity, the lamps are used to light up the rooms.
Endless choice of fun activities to enjoy here such as elephant riding, bamboo rafting, trekking, mountain biking, boat trip, waterfall and cave visit, river jumping, canoeing.
Not an hotel to go by yourself. It is better to get in with an organized tour, that include a night with activities during your stay. They are absolutely clueless for helping you with activities. If something is proposed it is so outrageously expensive that you have to forgot. The price for renting a long-tail boat is more than 2000 THB for a hour... I asked then if it is possible to have a taxi to Kanchanaburi (about 70 km) and price proposed was about 2000 THB or more (quoted). A taxi was proposed itself for 1300 THB ! To get from the pier to the main road, they asked 50 THB per persons ! When at the pier, I asked someone to get to the main road and it was 15 THB (2 km) ! These exemples to tell that they are too expensive, the rooms also is expensive , we are talking of 4000 THB more for a nice room but without any facilities, i.e electricity.
Not over helpful when we arrived late, unable to get food. Drinks at bar expensive, though service good!
enjoyed our trip to river kwai and visits to all the museums and kanchanaburi war cemetery. a lot of sadness but also plenty of reflections of a war that claimed so many lives. loved the food at our floatel although we didn t really believed the guide when he told us that our rooms have no electricity or hot water. but we still managed to make the most of it. loved the hammocks in front and behind our room!!
staff was helpful when we wanted to change our package to include the tours of the museums and death railway etc... we got confirmation right away and money deducted to ensure there is no hitch to our plans! thanks for your help!
The staff were exellent. Our guider was a person who give us anoumouse infirmation about cultural and historical aspect their tribe. Cuisine was delicious. If you want to have unfogettable journey I recconend you visit the river Kwai.
Special hotel complex. Good for two nights because not many things to do and the meals are so so. Very interesting, spectacular and worth seeing .
we have payd for 3 nights but we chekt out after 1 night, becouse what you want to do it was so ekspencive, and if we want to go someware they try to sell a trip and just hussel us for money so we dident like it, cant be tru that you have to pay so much for so little...
sawadee we have used you many times and we reallyliket it. thank for a nice companey.
Nice resort with EcoTourism. Kids were very enjoy jump water, cayak. Romantic dinner! Peaceful and relax without communications. Weak point : can t order food, need to wait for serve foods only. Not good for family who s baby or small kid. No electricity! Sure that no air condition and tv.
Great service, thanks Khun Kim! Now, we are know that this website is best!! After I have tried many web.
no eletricity... night without a fan coulb be a big challenge
What a fabulous experience. Floating on a fast slowing river in the middle of the jungle. The staff and personal guide were fantastic. I recommend this place for anyone looking for something a bit different.
The rafts were good & it was very relaxing. We were not told that if we wanted western food it had to be ordered the day before. I was a bit shocked to find we had kerosene lamps for the (Wooden) rooms to find that they leaked & so could not be taken into the room at night. Beds hard.
Ok no problem but didn t know how we were meant to get the booked boat to the rafts. A bit more information would have helped, but it was a graet experience
Well, I have never left a negative feedback in my life but I feel I have to. It was the biggest dissapointment ever. The price for the room is soo expensive and then they even charge extra 900 Baht for taking you to the hotel...so if you want to get there you have no other options but to pay. And if you complain over the phone,don tbe surprised if they hang up on you. There are a number of days out they organise but the price they ask for it is far far expensive. The dinner is served between 7- 7.30 which leaves you with no chance really. The quality of the food was ok, but for the price you d expect at least fine dining :) It s a shame though because the location is awesome and the rooms are nice,but I think they ve gone far with the prices. If you have a wallet full of money choose it,otherwise stay away.
Very helpful however they should have warn people about not choosing the room without boat transfer option,as you cannot go otherwise to the hotel.
Super endroit qui sort de l ordinaire, original.
