Nice vacation place to go.”
it's the 2nd time we stay at the float house river kwai. its really clean and nice comparing the others nearby. There is little bit water noise at night, naughty bugs in the field. But really great place to feel and touch the nature. Especially at night, the galaxy is so beautiful.
Overall is really good. However, there are 2 things the hotel need to improve. 1. Air condition in the room doesn't work well. Room is too hot to sleep. 2.There are lots of flies on the breakfast buffet line. Should the hotel install flies trap or cover food and utensils from the flies?
Great room down by the river, very quiet and clean, very relaxing and great for couples.
We've stayed there for one night in 3rd week of April, 2019. We have had great time. All things are convenient. Breakfast also very good. Restaurants menu are also good and not expensive. It is sure to come again.
Apart from the obviously stunning location, the rooms are delightfully decorated and the layout is well thought out. You can easily whilevaway a few hours just staring out from the veranda. I found the food offering in the restaurant to be slightly disappointing for a hotel of this standard and would have preferred the option to order a la carte. We truly enjoyed our stay here.
I loved every part of this experience! We just slept one night, and i think it was enough since its a little bit difficult to travel around the hotel. The hotel offered though many different (quite pricey) activities, but we never tried out any of them. Good food and good breakfast buffet! Great room, i mean perfect! Clean, big, perfect temperature control and great big bed! Really good night sleep and you can sometimes feel the house is really floating on water. I recommend!
A little slice of heaven!”
The trip to the Floathouse isn't easy. Several hours from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi, then another hour to the pier. Once you're on the boat though, you're in for a treat. It's 10 minutes to get to the Floathouse, surrounded by wooded cliffs on both sides. You pass by several other resorts until you turn a corner and see the line of floating villas and an amazing view of the hills surrounding the river. We had room A-1, at the very far end of the resort, which offered us the most amazing view of the entire place. My only complaint is that the pontoons of the last room seem a little less anchored than the rest, and each boat that passed by made enough waves to bob us up and down quite a bit - especially the floating patio at the front of the room. The room itself is fantastic - spacious, big bed, multiple large and comfortable couches, spacious closet, and an amazing shower that is pretty much outside (but blocked from view by fences). Very romantic location for any couple.
But the food”
Beautiful location and a great room. The only issues were that the cushions on the chairs in the room, not on the outside deck, were a bit stained. The biggest issue was the food. My wife if Thai and I have been in Thailand for 20 years. The Thai food at the restaurant was not good. I get they may have toned it down for the farang trade, but even when my Thai wife specifically asked for spicier the food was bland. We had the steamed snapper with chilies and herbs...no flavor. My wife had Kra-paw Muu, a normally spicy dish, bland. I will say, the western food I ended up trying wasn't bad. I had fish burger with excellent fries.
Beautiful place to stay ”
Very good hotel Staff are very nice and helpful Great place to relax and enjoy the river
very nice hotel ”
that's so good for holiday, beautiful silence and comfortable
Love love this resort! 3D2N was perfect and we also booked the Erawan Waterfalls tour with them. Place is surrounded by natural beauty and you will forget about the hustle and bustle of city life. Unfortunately, land transport from the pier to Kanchanaburi bus terminal is a bit expensive as there was only 2 of us. We paid 1600 Baht for the truck to send us there. They charge per vehicle.
Love the place”
It's so relaxing to stay in such a place. It's very clean and nice. River jump is a popular activity however there's no supervision by staffs and we got into some slight trouble with the fast current. Guests should be briefed on safety instructions.

จอดรถที่ท่าเรื่อพุตะเคียน แล้วนั่งเรื่องหางยาว(ฟรี) ซึ่งเป็นบริการของทางรร. จะสะดวกกว่า ขับรถไปรร. ผ่านทางอุทยาน ซึ่งถนนแคบ ชัน และไม่มีสัญญาณโทรศัพท์ และจากที่จอดรถจะต้องเดินลงบันไดชัน ไม่เหมาะกับผู้สูงอายุ ควรซื้อขนมไปเอง ขนมบนแพแพงมาก

Best riverside hotel, but priced accordingly”
This is the most posh of the floating Kwai hotels, and the rooms here are really nice and huge like small houses. Expensive but if you want to enjoy the river in comfort, it's worth it. Restaurant food is only ok, but most river float hotels are like that.
10 out of 10. except for occasional ants and quake due to boat pass-by (since the house is floating on river). But I don't care these minor drawbacks at all. It's a prefect resort with tranquil mountain/river along with helpful and friendly staffs. Will come back again someday. (BTW, internet was faster than my own home!)
Place is very remote, if going in by car (car and boat option provided), no signs to tell you where is the hotel. But because the place is remote, it is a very good place to just relax. One could just jump into the river in front of the room. Staff are extremely nice, will check to make sure you have all your needs before they end their day.
The experience of being on the River Kwai is great. The hotel is isolated but this is one of the reasons we chose to stay. Its relatively easy to get to but more information about where to park a car and get a boat to the hotel would be very helpful.as part of the booking confirmation. Overall the hotel is very good..rooms are very nice, clean and large with good A/C. Our in room Wifi was not working and no attempt was made to fix it.... a minor inconvenience. The staff are really very good. They are pleasant, helpful and always greet you with a smile. The biggest issue we have with this hotel is the poor quality of food provided. As the hotel is very isolated, it means that evening meals are usually in the hotel (as is breakfast). The quality of the food can best be described as 2 star. This is very disappointing. The hotel could move into a much higher category if the food was of a higher standard. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again and if the food could be improved, this hotel would truly be a destination for many travelers..
This was truly one of the most amazing place I have stayed all over the world.. simply breathtaking!! We Highly recommend this to anyone seeking a place to relax in a stunning peaceful environment.. my only negative thing was I couldn't stay longer !
hidden secret gem”
Excellent getaway from everything. It is on the river so you get to live on the river. For a moment I thought I'm not in Thailand. The float-house moves around a bit all the time since it is on the river, more so if a boat passes by (FYI). You can also explore the Lawa cave nearby on foot.
Unique adventure ”
Reachable only by boat. I loved taking a dip in the river although the current just takes u to the end. Life vest required. There's not much to do around here. Stayed one night and could've stayed one more max. Quite an experience.
