Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were taken aback by the beautiful jungle surrounding the resort. Arrived by long boat on the river Kwai. Rooms were set out in bungalows. Clean and comfortable. An experience to be remembered. On-site restaurant was buffet style for breakfast and dinner was either off the menu or buffet style. The food was ok, room for improvement , did not detract from our overall experience and enjoyment of this beautiful resort.

Remote with NO outside retail around. You are located in a jungle and everything is self contained in this location. Accessible by river boat but very peaceful and relaxing. Ideal for honeymoon, anniversary or time to just getaway.

I think River Kwai Reshotel has to be the best hotel I've ever stayed at. Its like Fantasy Island! We arrived at the hotel via a longboat, a beautifully scenic journey on the River Kwai that lasted about 30 minutes. Yes, you can drive your car directly to the hotel, but the boat ride is better and more dramatic. Basically, this hotel is situated in a jungle, and the rooms are all bungalows dotted around the vast property, so theres plenty of privacy. In the mornings you awake to various birds singing just before dawn, and crickets at night. The property has many walking paths for hiking or casual walks. And if you have time, there is a path leading to an indigenous tribal community that will gladly welcome you and show you around their small community, where you also have the option to buy their handmade items (ask the hotel manager about this). Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and luxurious (with walk-in shower). And the food of course, is excellent.

We loved this hotel and getting there by boat is super cool if you travel with kids. Our room was great for a family of 4, just a bit hard to adjust water temperature in the shower. Dinner and breakfast were fine too and staff were really nice, specially in the restaurant. They are building a spa, will be nice to see it done! Only thing we didnt like is that they allow guests from the other hotels around to come to the pool. We were relaxing by the pool and a group of 10 or more showed up making lots of noice.

Great luxury resort in the middle of the jungle near the river kwai. We booked a 4-day package that included many excursions. Our guide or better said "the" guide was fantastic. We had a great time and hope to come back soon

We really enjoyed our stay here which we used as a base to explore the area. The property is really well maintained and our room with a view of the river was excellent. Even though we didn’t have our children with us it has so much on offer including 2 summing pools, mountain bikes etc there would be plenty to do! The team there were very friendly and obliging helping us book tickets to erawan falls plus organising transport there. We had all our meals there which we enjoyed. There’s something for everyone including my wife who can be fussy. I would love to stay again for longer next time.

Our second stay but added the Anzac service to this stay. The Resotel organised everything inclusive at a wonderful price. Pick up from Bangkok, touring on the way to Resotel, Anzac Service attendance, accommodation, meals, transportation and more. if you are looking to visit Kanchanaburi and visiting River Kwai, war cemetery, museum and other, don't look past this Resort and book a package ( all meals included). You won't be disappointed. The Resort is located in a very quiet location, almost feels like you are away from the busy life, very peaceful. If we ever visit this area again, we will definitely stay here again.

Four of us stayed at the River Kwai Resotel resort over the Christmas holiday. Our rooms were bungalow-style with a shared porch. The rooms were clean and well-maintained. The shower was very large and the amenities were adequate. They replenished the coffee/tea daily in addition to the waters. Even though other bungalows are very near, they do a great job of landscaping to block the views between them. Breakfast was ample. The restaurant is quite good, especially with its Thai offerings. They have 2 nice swimming pools. The one near reception is a smaller size while the one to the west of the main area is quite large. We enjoyed many swims. There are bikes available for use on grounds. They have some lounge chairs below at their dock. You can arrive by boat or car. The drive in is quite long and through a very rural area. It's quite amazing when you reach the end of the road and see this entire resort unfold. We spent some time and a little money at the neighboring Mon village. Walking up to the caves at the small, national park was also fun. Lots of up & down walking at the resort, too, as it's built into a steep, river valley hillside. Other than the bats at the cave, we didn't see much wildlife. There are a nice assortment of birds attracted to this resort area, however, and the morning serenade is lovely. They do have a small snack hut but the prices reflect that you are quite some distance from any competition. We all enjoyed our stay and do plan to return another time.
