This hotel looks better then in pictures. Room is huge and furnished in a very original way - ropes and wood everywhere, very rustic Thai style that blends with the environment. Some reviewers complained about the noise from the boats. They do not operate over night and the first ones start at 7am. We took Serenata tour which included 2...

Was a beautifully tranquil location. It was a little difficult to get to but was totally worth it. The view from the room was surreal :) My only criticism was that the long boat stops running after 6pm and most excursions would get you back later than 6pm if you wanted dinner out as well... so you almost feel obliged...

This is an astonishing hotel on the river proper, about 5-10 minutes upstream from the pier. It is absolutely in a beautiful setting, and the hotel is really very well appointed. The restaurant is great, the day trips fabulous and our stay was very good. A couple of minor things though. The website for the hotel claims it is not...

I loved the way the house rocked when a boat passed by. The room is beautiful and the food is tasty and not over-priced.. BUT the tours were / are a little bit of a rip off. However if you are there just to chill out and enjoy a beautiful boat house on a beautiful river in nature then go...

We stayed here for three nights and loved the ambience, layout and construction of these floating villas. Rooms were comfortable and tranquil. Regrettably though we did not hire a car as the resort location is very secluded. This meant we ate at the float house for the majority of our meals. Living in Thailand I did not think the Thai...

We stayed for 3days and 2 nights. The itinerary was fun, educational and packed. We had a good time with best service by your staff "Kah" who was like the guide, the waiter, the egg station chef, the potter and he delivered it very well. Thank you for looking after us and ensure we had a good time 👍🏻

We were looking for a quiet get away from Bangkok and the FloatHouse River Kwai was exactly what we were hoping for. We were very happy with the services and the facilities. We booked for 2 nights with breakfast package. The hotel has only one restaurant which is basically on a float house next to the reception area. The food...

This is a very beautiful place. The rooms are individual cabins floating on the river. Everything is made very tastefully. Great service. Good food. Yes, more expensive than the streets but you are in the middle of the jungle. Everything is fresh and tasty. We stayed 2 nights and wished we had more time there. It's a very romantic place...

We took the Death Train from Bangkok, had lunch at The floating Restaurant (v good) overlooking The Bridge On the River Kwai and then found a taxi to get us to Resotel. From there a scenic longboat to the FloatHouse. Great first impression! Isolated, romantic, beautiful. Beautiful decor, well appointed rooms. Not sure I'd be relaxed with youngsters here. No...
