                      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.

                      Beautiful accomondation on the river surrounded by nature. The landscape is amazing! The floats are full with flowers and every daytime is impressing. The only negative things were that the bathroom is really dark and it is better you bring up some light with you. Also there was no staff for massage available. Lunch and Dinner were good (Vegetarian) but i could imagine, that if you stay longer than 3 days it could be boring as it was nearly the same every day. In the end we definately come back but only for a short stay.

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.

                      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

                      The raft is surprisingly comfortable despite being without electricity. We like that it is eco friendly and the Mon village next to the raft is a great plus. Totally quiet at night and it was full of stars. Truly memorable.

                      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.

                      If you love the nature, simplicity or quietness, River Kwai Jungle Rafts Resort is a place for you. Be prepared for no electricity, cold shower and small torches. Most importantly, be prepared to have tons of fun jumping in the river and floating then face lovely elephants that would greet you in the morning. Highly recommended !

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      Unique experience, adventure and romantic.”
                      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!
