Cons: hotel charges excessive prices for the tours. Customers are subject to the high prices because the hotel is remotely located. Besides that I had a fantastic time there, loved to be surrounded by nature.

This resort is very peacefull. If you need somthing natural and quiet it is your first to select. The location is near by Lava cape and close to Kwai riever but not easier to go by car. The hotel they have boat for you convience.

We went to the hotel at night and we drove there. It was very dangerous by driving there coz the ways were too dark which no lights at all. We would suggest to take the boat instead of driving there. It's about THB300 from the pier to the hotel.

we had a really nice stay even if really short. The hotel is just beautifully set on the river, the rooms are super confy and clean. The area is just perfect for little escursions, biking and canoeing.

quite area good for getting away from the busy city. A bit too far from the main road if driving into the resort area. However, the resort offer the free tote ride from the other pier on the opposite site and car park at the pier.

The hotel in general is to die for its peacefull and beutifull with scenic views of the river close by.we had a river view bungalow that was gorgeous and a nice swimming pool with a gorgeous thai style restaurent area in wood,the down side to a exoensive hotel the food was of poor quality and over priced beers ect as was disgusted to pay 100 baht for a small bottle what a joke,so its best to get all your beers ect from a local 7/11 which is some kilometres away on the other side of the river in the town.staff very helpfull and friendly and a nice all round place to relax,may visit again in the future,nick from england with my thai wife

Spent some of our honeymoon here in 2009 and came back to check it out. Now has road access. Great hotel with fantastic friendly staff. Rooms spotless and with all the facilities you could need. Nice pool and restaurant bar area. Jungle sounds at night are fabulous, a real feel of being in the jungle whilst staying in nice accomodation.

Lovely atmosphere and architecture”
We are architects, so we love their buildings and tropical garden so much. We also got upgraded to the newly decorated room which is very clean and comfy. The hotel is sit in the forrest, up and down hill, so it might be difficult to travel around, if you have no vehicle, especially at night. We have a car but we decided to stay there for dinner and the food was fine.

Perfect retreat”
After reading a few negative reviews here I arrived with slight trepidation. I have stayed in other similar jungle chalets before and know a few of the problems some people mentioned. However... i found none of thise problems here myself. Staff were very friendly and very helpful and pleasant and the room i had .. 608 was really beautiful. It was spotlessly clean and freshly smelling. Aircon was very cool and everytbing was as it should be. The grounds of the hotel are beautifully kept and the nature is stunning. A few renovation works were underway at the time of our stay and probably the reason we got a fantastic deal on the price. These didnf pose any prblems to me at all during my stay. Food was very good.. plenty of choice and buffet breakfast was plentiful. I recommend a walk through the grounds to the float house sister for lunch by the river. All in all a great place to visit and i will be returning on my next visit to tbe area.

The resort is hidden away and not readily accessable, transport needed to visit local attractions or use the hotels river transport. Food very good and staff are very attentative. Restaurant closes at9pm and the bar at 10pm Pool is small but very clean, all the rooms are well siyuated and privacy is provided. The hotels organises the popular attraction visits. A very enjoyable stay, and would return.

For true natural lovers”
The resort is located beside the river in deep forest, so it’s a heaven for true natural lovers but too far in distance on lonely rural road by car. The resort’s facilities are full option. The room is not quite clean. Resort’s restaurant has all high cost menus. No internet signal and resort’s wifi is out of order. The staffs at reception are not quite friendly and helpful. At last, if you come by car, the car park is very far from the room and you have to walk with your staff carrying by yourself!!!

More locals here than tourists. Weekends rather busy, weekdays are very quiet. Google does not recognize the road this resort is on - it will take you to a street after or before- watch out for the sign. Nice place to feel connected to nature.

Beautiful location but drop the cheesy entertainment!”
Loved the location, it's an exciting journey to get there taking the boat a short ride up the river. The facilities and rooms were all lovely but personally I wasn't a fan of the evening entertainment. Covers of YMCA in the jungle weren't really my cup of tea :D

Superb value for money. We had a double house (to get 4 beds) with shared terrace with river view. Nice pool area with places both with sun and shadow at noon time. Good food selection with a-la-carte and buffet. Free parking for the car. A bit far from the main road (no. 323), but that is the price for staying directly at the river on the western bank.

Great place for a nature retreat. You won't be disappointed. ”
Pros: 1. Great facilities 2. Exceptional location. 3. Accommodation of two types -one with a jungle based theme with great chalets. Another river based floating chalets 750 meters from the jungle chalets. 4. Great food at very affordable rates - both Western and Asian. 5. Lots of things to occupy time - elephant bathing and riding at th e Elephant Sanctury, white water rafting and canoeing, jungle trekking, A traditional dance, caving, etc. Cons: 1. Mosquitoes. But what does one expect in a natural place in a tropical country? But you can get effective repellent at the premises. 2. Getting there. Quite a distance from Bangkok. About 3 hours by road.

Amazing setting on the river ”
We had a lovely stay here. It really is away from it all - including having to get the hotel boat up the river for the final stretch. The staff were lovely, food was great and all sorts of things to see and do around the site including a massive bat filled cave nearby! Finally for those interested the hotel pier is a short drive from the Hellfire pass memorial and museum (if you go get the excellent audio tour)

Forest Resort”
Food orders arrived quick, friendly staff, clean rooms
The resort is quiet nice, peaceful. Staff are friendly and helpful. In order to effectively communicate with staff you must speak in local language not all staff have good English skills. We booked superior river view room but did not get it because not all rooms are located for river view area. That was a downer. Maybe it was the better than way because the speed boats made a lot of noise during the day picking up guest from one pier to another. The resort is far from everything so best to buy in things from convenience store before. If you buy things at the resort it does get pricey. Unless you don't mind. We had our transportation so it was easy to leave the resort and get things from outside. All together it was a good experience in nature.

Secluded hotel next to the River Kwae/Kwai”
Nature, surroundings, secluded
Our stay at the River Kwai Resotel was great. It is a really nice location in a national park next to the River Kwai/Kwae and close to a Mon indigenous people village. The food is great, the pool is also very nice. The life music with dinner is a nice addition but it is unfortunate that in the weekends it turns into a very loud Karaoke-like place which disturbs the peace that normally hangs over the resort. My advice to the management is to also consider the other guests that do not necessarily want to hear loud music until late at night.

Great location, activities and staff”
Very calm location (access by boat !)
We stayed there one weekend, and wish to have stayed longer. We particularly appreciated to be able to jump directly into the river kway, the current dragging us to the shores. The hotel proposes multiple activities, we enjoyed thai massage, kayaking and the elephant ride. The rooms are big (bungallow style though it is pretty comfortable inside), and the area of the hotel is huge The restaurant was great (didn't try the buffet that was more "tourist" oriented), the staff is the nicest (the burmese cleaning crew even left us their famous powder on request !) The only few negative points : huge groups of tourists very noisy, the also noisy boats on the river that contrasts the calm athmosphere, and the bar which is hell expensive and closes at 10.
