How did we get here? We took the train from Thon Buri station and stopped at Nam Tok station around 12:45 am (Price 100 baht per person) then we hired a driver to take us to Phutakien pier.There were many boats waiting for taking the guests to the resorts. After long day on the train, I felt refresh from cool...

first time in a no electricity hotel! but the experience was good. It was hot, so would not recommend it on hot season. There is the river, we dont really understand why they dont create natural wind mill which may create energy naturally. for ceiling fan in each room. The reception lady is really not smily and unfriendly, Despite these...

Our family of 4, booked 2 rooms for 3 nights. It was honestly a nice break to have the kids (10&13) off of their ipads and wifi and reconnecting with us and each other. The floating down the river was loads of fun and the rooms are basic (cold showers) but we would recommend this Resort to families, however 2...

My girlfriend and I spent one night here and absolutely loved it. We spent the morning learning about the history of the area and visiting the war museum, before relaxing all afternoon with drinks and floating down the river. The food was very good as well. If you are looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok,...

The hotel was so unique and beautiful floating on the river. We were disappointed however that we weren't told when making the reservation of the 1,000 baht charge if you arrive after 6pm. Also, you have limited taxis from the boat dock that overcharge since they know you're a guest. We tried to join a 9 seater shuttle with another...

The lady at the reception was very helpful and tried to sort out the room to the upper raft for me while another guy (who can speak a few languages) said they are all the same. He did not pay attention for my preference request and walked away. Excellent place and great concept. We had a very good stay and...

We stayed there only one night and really enjoyed it. There is a Mon village on the river bank nearby the hotel. Most of the hotel staff are Mon people too as I noticed. It is nice. I liked the atmosphere. Breakfast in the morning at the open restaurant was good. The view was amazing. You should check their website...

No electricity. No hot water. Two phrases that have the potential to strike terror into many people's hearts. But fear not, the Jungle Rafts are still extremely comfortable and highly enjoyable. a beautiful location floating on the river, with the river actually visible through the floorboards in the room. We escaped hot and dirty Bangkok for a night and the...

The location of the jungle raft is amazing and even if it is in the middle of the river and located in the jungle, it is really confortable. Bathroom is fine, just cold shower. But with everyone just staying one or two nights, who cares.... you can also just jump in the river and have a swim. Food is nice,...
