A nature touch rafts along the River Kwai, living with no electricity, seeing the stars at night and having fun jumping in the river.. recommend to bring a torch coz those lamps provided by the resort help nothing ;)

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.

                    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.

                    Exotic stay under an eco facilities. Although there is no electricity supply but it is fun to have 1 night experience under the dark. The bed is not clean and pillows are smelly which needs to improve. There is no road access to the resort except boat from the jetty. Staffs are polite and helpful.

                    Big disappointment ”
                    Right after arrival I had to face the staff lazying and sleeping around in common areas for the guests. This hotel is really sort of unique and very beautiful, but provides totally terrible services. Its enough difficult for the guests to stay without electricity, in the darkness and no ventilator. Be aware that if rain the water leaks into the rooms. Cockroaches everywhere. This hotel has one bar with overpriced drinks, totally lazy bartender watching movies on his mobile phone. I was wondering where he could charge it if the guests are cut off electricity. Its ridiculous from the management to provoke guests allowing the staff watch movies in mobile phones during their work especially if the paying guests don’t have access to it. There is not any entertainment in the hotel, no music, no games thus after 8 pm it looks like dead and abandoned place. I don’t recommend this hotel to anyone, its totally overpriced for what they offer. there are many other hotels of this type around river Kwai with much better service and comfort offered. This one is not worth even the experience. So far the biggest tragedy for the Thai hotel industry ! They should change the manager and especially the bartender. The staff should be better trained. More services should be offered.

                    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!

You take the boat to get here from the pier. It is a must do in thailand. Jump in the river and flow with the current. Nice meals. Highly recommend

                    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.

                    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.

                    It is really jungle, floating hotel in the River Kwai, very basic, no electric, but lot of fun and unique ecperience: back to basic in the middle of nowhere. The 3rd time i stayed here.
                    When you like nature, and back to basic for 1 or max.2 nights, this is great! No electric, only oil lamps at night. Good beds (3 per room). Very simple shower, cold water, good western toilet. These floating hotels are in the River Kwai. So romantic, so unique. Just jump in de river and let you float to the last boat, climb on board, walk back and jump again: lot of fun! Food is very good Thai food, set-menu, and breakfast. Very friendly staff. When you visit Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai, it is a must to spend one night here. Can only be reached by boat from Resotel pier, 15 minutes by long-tail boat. Transfer was included in room price. For me the 3 rd time to stay there, everytime with different friends, and they love it!

                    The rooms were very clean, beautiful and peaceful surroundings in nature and great activities such as kayaking, caves, Mon village and swimming in the clean river.
                    We had a lovely time at Jungle Rafts. The staff were great and spoke English well. It was very quiet and peaceful. It was nice to see some nature in Thailand away from the jammed packed tourists hot spots. Make sure you take a swim in the river and visit Erawan Falls and Lawa Cave.

                    Beautiful floating hotel thanks to the many flowers and plants in front of each room
                    Pleasantly surprised by this hotel, although there is no electricity, no A/C, it was perfect for a one night stay (could extend with one more night). Not suitable for long stay in my opinion, but the food at the resort was definitely OK. Make sure you make it in time at the pier for the transfer by longtailboat to the hotel, or they will charge 900 Baht for one-way in case you don't make it at the scheduled time.

                    bigger flashlights, there is no electricity only oil lamps prices incl. transport a little bit too high
                    This hotel is a floating hotel with very nice rooms and furniture. There is no electricity, only oil lamps but this is very romantique. In the evening there is a performance of Moon dances. The Moon hill tribe manage this floatel with great enthousiasme. we have visited this floatel already many times but every time we do it with great pleasure because of the quiet surrounding. You feel at home at the moment you arrive with the long tail boat. Everyting is well organised.

                    Firstly, we don’t know this hotel is like no electricity and hideaway in the jungle. We just thought that this is close to the river. After we arrived, this is a bit shock us a lot. No electricity, almost no phone/wifi signal. This is completely for relax and hideaway from outside. Lastly, with 1 night, I would say that this is amazing time we had there. All person leave phone behide, head up, and enjoy time. This is the great experience and surprise at the same time.

                    We got to enjoy incredible nature right from the moment we got into the shuttle boat before arriving at the raft. The weather is very nice and cool even in April. It actually got cold at night. However, there is not much to do around. Only canoeing (1000baht additional) and short trail through a small Mon village. There’s no electricity or warm shower. Dinner is great with variety of options but breakfast is very plain and no other options than bread, eggs and ham.

                    Dear Mayuree, Thank you for your recent stay at River Kwai Jungle Rafts and for sharing your compliments and feedback with us. Choosing not to use electricity here is actually because of the conservation of our unique concept and atmosphere. It is where you are not 'connected' to hassle time during daily work life. It is your time to stay with nature and appreciate it. This does also mean that there is no hot water available. We are very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy enough activities in the area. We try to offer a nice variety on the location itself, such as the river bamboo rafting, canoeing, river jumping, a relaxing massage and visits to the Mon village. And activities nearby, which include a visit to the Lawa cave with a nice jungle walk, or to visit Hellfire Pass, the museum or the Treetop adventure park. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kindest regards, River Kwai Jungle Rafts
