          Oasis of peace”

          location, design, WiFi

          Island Resorts is situated 15 km from the city of Kanchanaburi on the intersection of rivers Kwae Yai and Taphoen, which makes it a great location. It consists of many wooden cottages - some have river view, some are in a little hill around a pond. Since we were 3 out of 5 visitors in those two days it was an oasis of peace. But if all cottages are occupied it can be a busy place. Interior of our cottage was well designed - small bathroom with hot water, fridge, TV, free WiFi, foldable sofa/bed and wooden stairs to a sleeping area above bathroom. There is no restaurant but the owners have menu and cook food themselves. Pretty spicy Thai. We were eating outdoors in a gazebo near the river. Also breakfast was served there. The only drawback is that without own transport you are cut out of everywhere - good to meditate and practice Tai Chi all day long.

          Excellent quite stay”

          Beautiful river side location

          We enjoyed our 1 night stay, the hotel is located outside kanchanaburi which was why we chose it. Its about 15min drive, we had our own car so it was fine. Beautiful gardens surround the hotel, with cute little houses are your hotel room. Rooms are basic but very clean. Staff although dont speak much english, but this was no an issue for us. The breakfast was basic, 2 eggs with toast, and this was perfect for us. The hotel is right on the river and we enjoyed an afternoon of drinks by the river watching the local children swim. Would stay here again.

          Outside the city, nice gardens, spacious rooms

          Location was great for us as a family, although needs to be noted that we drove there, so if you do not have your own transport, it is 15 Kim's from Kanchanaburi city. The rooms were like cabins, which we liked very much. Breakfast was Thai, but the owner made sure we were accommodated as foreigners and was friendly with us and our kids. All in all a nice get away from the business of the city. A nice weekend retreat...

          Quite isolated but easy to find first time with google maps. Extensive grounds but simple and a dated, basic bungalows. But the friendliness of the staff and the proximity and size of the resort (quite small) made the stay like a family group. Breakfast was out in a Pavilion next the river. It was a good experience. The kids loved playing with the kittens.

All 3 days of our stay, she took care of us as a family. Every evening she gave us electro-grill and we did a barbecue. The hotel grounds are very beautiful with views of the river.

          River side, Big ground, friendly and helpful staff

          It's the best place to stay away from city life. It has a big ground covered with big trees in some part that make it cozy, adding with 2 rivers flowing at 2 sides of the compound. Waiting for a good manager to shape up this resort to be known and attract more people to spend time there. So spacious enough to handle all kind of social event to arrange there.

          nature, cleanliness, location

          Love this place. Great space. Every bungalow are decently spaced so each customer have their own space. Parking lots aplenty. There are tamarind trees everywhere and you can just stroll along the premises and pick some up to eat if you like to. Breakfast is served by the lake. It was just simple two toasts with two sunny side up and industrial Thai Made sausages but because the eggs were too oily and we don't eat the sausages, we skipped breakfast the second day. Location will be hard to access if you don't drive a car though.

          We arrived late and left super early to go to the dawn service at hellfire pass. The lady who checked us in spoke no English but tried to be very helpful. We unexpectedly had an extra with us and she made up a sofa bed immediate and free of charge. It was a lovely quiet place. The rooms were clean and all in good working order, hot water and aircons and mosquito screens all appeared to be brand new and good quality. Wouldn't stay here for long term but an overnighter for peacefulness was good. It was a little far out and they had no restaurant or shop so take that into account. Views of the river were stunning.
