              Pung-Waan Resort and Spa”

              Great location and first class swimming pool.
              Bathrooms are very small. The rooms have old tvs with limited channels.

              I stayed at the Pung-Waan Resort and Spa for 2 days. The hotel is on the banks of the Kwai river and is beautifully landscaped with a first class swimming pool. The hotel is an older hotel. The room was okay but had a very old tv and a very limited number of channels, only 2 in English. The food was good and reasonably priced. There were very few people in the hotel, less than 10, so there were no buffets in the restaurant. You had to order everything ala carte. The room was advertised as a deluxe spa which I took to mean a jacuzzi. The bath room only had a tub not a jacuzzi so that was misleading. The bathrooms were small and also very old. Overall a pleasant experience in great location.

              Very few guests but plenty of staff. Lazy river not worked for years. Needs money spent on the resort but i dont see how that will happen when they have so few guests. Beautiful quiet location. Good swimming pool. Dont come for the spa as all staff have left but good cheap massage in town. Hire a car and travel. Food very good if you like thai food. Service good. Beds hard but thats ok personal preference.

              Hotel itself is nice, but that's all ...”

              The hotel rooms are quite spacious and nice, the resort is very quiet and really invites to relax. The big fountain or the big pool are just two of the advantages of THE HOTEL. But as I said, only the hotel and its facilities are nice.
              We called them and at first, they told us they have no booking. This sounds quite un-organized! We called again and then they found our reservation. But aas far as organization is concerned ... we booked double room and they gave us a twin room. We used the in-room telephone and asked them to change and to bring us the key for a double room. We did not want to walk back, because the way back to reception was quite long. The resort is very big and straggly. But this was no problem, some minutes later a staff member brang us the new room key, but he also did not say any single word ... like the reception upon check in. We asked for the free shuttle, that was mentioned in the agoda offer. The shuttle was a pick-up car, in which we (that means two persons) had to squeeze. Upon arrival ... The staff was very very unfriendly. We arrived and they gave us the check in form. They did not say 'hi', they did not say anything, they just gave us the form. And upon check out ... we asked for the shuttle again and they said they have no shuttle today. We told them that they offered shuttle service and that they can not say that they have no shuttle. In that case they should offer an alternative, but they did not offer. We told them that we want to have a shuttle and that they can find solution ... they offered us to bring us to the bus station with a motorbike. It is quite normal to use a motorbike with 3 persons in Thailand, but we did not expect that such a hotel would offer this service. Bus station is a 10 minutes drive. After long and hard discussions they organized transportation to the bus station. Moreover, the location of this hotel could be a problem. If you are planning to use motorbike, its ok. But if not, you always have to wait for motorbike taxi, and they pass quite rarely.

              This hotel is one of the most expensive in the city and we were quite shocked that staff was so unfriendly. We were also surprised that they could not provide the service that was mentioned at agoda website. If you are looking for a nice place to relax, this is a good choice ... you can sit on the river Kwai, relax in the spa or in the big pool ... many choiced for relaxation. But don't expect any friendliness! All things considered, we are surprised what they offer for this money. It is was one of the most expensive hotels in this city. We did not expect only a nice resort, but also friendly and helpful staff.

              Hotel Service is good but during the night, there is no entertainment. Once you are there in the resort with no transport, you will bored to death unless you just want to relax and sleep all day all night. The spa looks good and the staff is nice but they are not good in providing massage even you pay high price both for foot & body as well. The resort did not lived up to it's name is a Spa Resort, go anywhere else in the city you get cheaper and better massage.

              To avoid, definitively.”

              Beautiful garden along the river. Nothing else for this hotel.
              For the first day, the very poor breakfast was on the terrace outside. It's a beautiful place but in January, very cold ! Even the sausages were still frozen. For the second day, the breakfast was in the restaurant... but nearly nothing to eat. Just a few taosts and jam.

              At the end of Kanchanaburi, near the famous Kwai bridge, you use a small and very uncomfortable road for a few km, and arrive in Pung wan Hotel. The place is really beautiful. But the "superior" room is sinister. You have to change for a "river view" for 500 baht per night. Pretty better, but as all the hotel, dirty, sad and noisy. If you have your car, drive 5 km to Kanchanaburi and avoid to eat the oily food of the restaurant.

              Beautifull layout, nice pool and large room
              3km from the bridge (city) on a road without busses. Hotel is almost deserted unless a bus stops for the night

              3km outside the city / bridge, a beautifull place with a nice, large pool. Rooms are large with plenty of sitting possibilities. We stayed 4 nights of which 2 a bus was overnighting. The other 2 nights, no 5 rooms were in use. The staff had its New Year party (no guest would notice) where we were invited and enjoyed the evening. All staff is very friendly. The restaurant is good but without a bus, deserted. The city nightlife is far away. 1 morning we had an outside breakfast buffet, 1 morning we were not allowed at the Kosher buffet and the other 2 days it was inside a la carte (no 3 tables in use). It stays a nice place but it is not cosy when so quiet.

              Good sized rooms set on the river in a quiet tranquil setting

              No coffee in room, internet is not free like hotels elsewhere and breakfast is ordinary with little choice and no bacon. Otherwise a very nice place to stay.

              Location of the hotel, and the hotel grounds
              Very dated rooms, bad communication between staff, bad restaurant facilities

              Overall the hotel provides a basic standard of accommodation along the river Kwai. The rooms are not that impressive, and very dated. The hotel facilities are fine, although the restaurant was quite disappointing. We arrived at the hotel on a Friday evening at 9pm. By the time we had checked into our room it was 9.30pm. We went to the restaurant where they were supposed to be serving food until 10pm. They told us they had closed the kitchen. We were quite disappointed as there was nowhere else we could get food and we had just traveled in from Bangkok. I would not choose to stay at this hotel again.

              Acceptable”

              The resort is over priced at Sgd$90 after discount. The room was big but sound proofing was poor. You can hear clearly the next room occupant showering or flushing the toilet. Not every room has hairdryer and kettle, you need to request. The resort was fully booked so i received a flask of hot water instead of the kettle. The breakfast spread was ok for the price but the cafe is not airconditioned and not many fans were installed. It was getting hotter as we ate. I booked a few rooms via different app and i was asked to provide a hardcopy of the booking or send the confirmation email. It was a bit of hassle then upon entering the room front desk called to say they didnt receive all booking when my sent box confirmed that i had sent. The staff spoke very little English. It was difficult to communicate. In summary, if you run out of option you can stay there for a night.
