Buritara Resort & Spa
Just what I needed”
This was a perfect place for us. I required peace and quiet and I definitely got that. The resort is isolated but just what I wanted. Staff were excellent and accommodating. Food is all Thai food, again fine with me.
Being 7 people in a mixed family group the house was perfect. Space for everyone. The area is a bit out of the way bu very quiet and beautiful. We had no problems making our daytrips to Kanchanaburi, Songkhla, Sai Yok and Erawan national parks. As the internet connection was a bit off we could spend some quiet evenings in the beautiful surrondings of the resort. A bit chilly in the evening but very relaxing. We will come back
quite far from downtown Saiyok, ”
very poor facility - bad condition poor staff”
terrible facilities, poor service very old, poor condition
Terrible, actual surrounding is not same picture i”
actual surrounding is not same picture in Agoda, during we walk from lobby to room.
We choose the hotel as viewing agoda photo but the place different from your photo.
A quiet hideaway”
We stayed at a deluxe tent. The room was quite old but spacy and clean. The surrounding is very quiet and the location is next to the river Kwei.
Quiet hotel and nicely hidden”
Was here only for one night. Although a bit overpriced, considering everything else, the resort was fine. Very quiet, near the river, and peaceful. Recommended if you want to get away from the hustle and bussle of popular places or central locations. The staff may be confused though so don't expect them to give you clear directions :)
Grate place with friendly staff”
I got free upgrade by request. The food is nice. Staffs are well trained and take care customer. Th elocation is next to the river, you can feel fresh air in the morning. The room is clean with nice decoration and atmosphere.
The location could be very nice but in need of serious investment to bring up to even a good basic standard. Booked for 2 nights and left after one.
Not as advertised...”
I booked a luxury tent and got a leaky caravan with a bit of canvas at the front. The place is run down and needs total renovation. I was not happy having paid good money to find the hotel in disrepair.. The breakfast was basic but good.. The hotel is very difficult to find and not well signposted.. If I had paid half as much I would have few complaints. However the hotel is not worth more than 1000 baht per night in my view.
very very nice and spacious hotel”
I like this hotel very much. It also helped that they upgraded us free of charge when our own room was leaking and not that clean (the bathroom that is). The tent is defenitely worth the money and very luxiourious. You can better go enjoy the surrouding or the spa.
Friendly but rustic”
We spent a long weekend here. The resort is quite big with a nice landscaping by the river but the pool is too small. Our room is big but old with little amenities. The restuarant there serves basic food with a speedy room service. The best thing about this resort is a very friendly staff.
Bad service, Lack of facilities, Bad location, etc”
First of all, I simple don't like manner of the staff. She doesn't need to comment about customer's face or give out her thought at all, she doesn't need to say how customer looks like, they are your customers, and you have to pay respect. Secondly, the water in the toilet cannot be ventured and it always makes flooding in the toilet, and it takes very long time to take water out. The location is also very unknown and it is down the hill, the hotel is very old, and there seems to be some termites. I'm afraid one day it will collapse down!!
Overall we were very happy with our stay. The manager could not have been any more accommodating, and the staff were sweet. The place is far out and rundown, but our cottage house was very cozy and we were actually very happy with the remoteness of the place. It had a certain charm and we were able to relax and escape the bustle of Bangkok.
tents in the jungle”
this hotel is reasonable for the discounted internet rate that we got from agoda - the tents were well layed out and nicely located near the river kwai. The staff were willing and helpful and we had a pleasant nights stay. Overall the hotel has an air of neglect and decay which is a shame because it has potential given a little careful investment.
