Overall we had a great time as the experience was very different to stay on a hotel floating on the river was cool fun for the family.

Anthony | April 23, 2019

As I said overall a great experience and we will return to the hotels on this river just next time we will pick one with AC.

Anthony | April 23, 2019

We got to enjoy incredible nature right from the moment we got into the shuttle boat before arriving at the raft.

Mayuree | April 12, 2018

Surprisingly very good night stay as year end weather is cooling around 18 degs while river flows fast.

          Excellent experience - compared to similar other options on the Kwai river, this one has no electricity, so you will enjoy a detox from the busy and noisy urban life (you will be able to enjoy the river and jungle sounds without a generator disturbance). rooms were clean but very basic and relatively small you have a shared space in front of each room, like a water deck, as well as a private deck with a hammock where you can read or relax). food was excellent and in abundance served on the deck. You have plenty of options for recreational activities around the Mo Village (including feeding the elephants and going for nice walks)

          Only lady from reception handles everything. For all the extra activities, it required to buy ticket at the reception. Transportation was provided from hotel to Phutakien Pier only. Extra money to spend to get that pier from Nam Tok station or Sai Yok Noi waterfall if you travelled by local transport.

          Really nice and relaxing. Be careful going into the river, it can be quite dangerous. I got the hotel on promotion, but honestly think it was over priced. The food was quite bad. Unless you're really into the hotel no electricity thing, you can find another one on the river cheaper, with better facilities. The hotel has no electricity and uses gas lamps instead. This does mean you will smell gasoline a lot.

          The location of this jungle raft hotel is very nice which it is floting above river. Although there is no electricity but you can feel the natural way. You can relaxing and spend time here. The room is nice but there is still the smell of wood when it is rainning. Over all is nice, I would like to go back again if I have a chance to travel Kanchaburi city.

          very nice and iconic hotel. no electricity in night and hence people who are used to aircon - difficult to stay as it was very hot in late February . we slept outside the room over the raft infront of the room. other problem is the hotel is way inside the main road and going in an out is very difficult unless you have your own vehical. it takes very long from bangkok to travel to the river raft hotel if you dont have your own vehical..if you take public transport. from bangkok bus station to kanchanaburi is 2.5-3 hrs . Then from kanchanburi you have to take bus which takes 1.5 hrs to namtok(taxis charge 1000 to 1200 thai bhat).Then from namtok you have to take songthaw to go to the the resotel pier which cost you around 400 thai bhat and 30 minutes. then you have to wait for the boat which is provided free from the hotel( total of 5-6 hrs from bangkok ) The hotel should organise transport from kanchanaburi which will make life of the tourist easier.

          Amazing place getting back to nature”

          This was a lovely place to stay. Very easy to find if you follow the directions to the pier, you need to get a boat which is really cool and you feel as if you are leaving everything behind. There is no electricity/lighting and mobile phone coverage is patchy at best, this is made extremely clear on the booking page so I don't really understand all the negative reviews, in fact this was part of the reason we stayed here! The place is lit by gas lamps at night and looks amazing, you can see all the stars and listening to the river run by is so calm and tranquil. Top marks to the staff, so friendly and nice, especially the lady at reception who was amazingly helpful in organising an early boat for us in the morning as we needed to get back to the pier. Will definitely be staying here again!

          I love it so much that I plan to go back again soon. I'm a bit lucky that it rain right in the evening so it cools everything down and it got a bit chill at night. No need for Air con. However, for dinner and breakfast , they should serve buffet instead. Food is not enough for me and my bf.

          Just loved it !”

          The place was just stunning. Quiet, in the middle of nowhere. The rooms were super clean, swimming in the river was amazing and fun and all the guests seemed to be enjoying this. Dinner was fine considering they work only by gas light and with gas - absolutely no power at all there. Drinks were reasonable enough. Suggest taking your own something to enjoy by gas light out side your room later. I was mostly worried about mosquitos and other crawlies but literally saw not one and got not one bite. Missed my early morning coffee as breakfast doesn't start till 0700am and I was up at 0500am waiting to watch the sunrise. Breakfast was again fine. Staff are all lovely. I will definitely be taking guests there again. Probably would only go between Dec-March as the rooms would be a little too warm in the hotter seasons.

          Clean & simple vibe, love to come back soon !”

          Like its simplicity and tree decor A bit dark in the room but we went in the gloomy day. At night is awesome , pitch black with cool breeze and stars full across the sky. Everything else is perfect if you seek a nice quiet spot within tight budget.

          Retreat on the river”

          We had a delightful time at River Kwai Jungle Rafts. This rustic resort floating in the river is the perfect getaway. Even though cell phones do work here, there is no electricity to recharge so just turn them off, bring a book and a bathing suit, and enjoy. You can float down the river, go kayaking, or explore the Mon village where most of the hotel workers live. The dinner was excellent - very much a home made Thai dinner.
