This resort is wonderful. It's small, friendly with superb attention to detail. The owners are very knowledgeable & helpful, the staff are lovely, nothing is too much trouble. If you like gardens, birds & frogs combined with natural beauty this is the place for you. I hope we will be back!

Second time in Oriental Kwai Resort. We were happy to see that they have kept the excellent quality of service, food and living. What was pleasant surprise that prizes were same as two years ago. Some improvements had been made - little gym and very nice massage place.

Oriental Kwai Resort is set in an idyllic location beside the River Kwai. The Dutch/Thai family who own and run the hotel are delightful and know the area very well, they can arrange all manner of tours, transfers, bike and scooter rides. The twelve villas are set well apart in well maintained gardens ensuring privacy for all the guests. The...

The Oriental has exceeded even our high expectations. After a warm welcome we were surprised by our first class bungalow decorated with a lot of taste and equipped with everything you need (and everything worked very well, even the plumbing!). It had a comfortable size and was impeccably clean. The whole resort is excellently maintained, we liked the beautiful garden...

This place was the perfect place to stay to end our Asia trip. It has a very homey feeling with five star service. There was nothing I could fault after staying here. The services offered were perfect, the staff were perfect and always friendly and helpful. The rooms were modern and so beautifully decorated. We had dinner and breakfast here...

Spent four very enjoyable days here on a first visit, and hoping to repeat that in the not too distant future. The hosts and staff are very accommodating and pleasant, the rooms very clean, quiet and comfortable, the food very tasty with a particular shout out for the great choice of breakfasts. The fitness room is a very welcome addition,...

We stayed here for a week with our 9 month baby. The hotel was very flexible- providing a highchair, baby portions of food, a cot etc. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and quiet and the food is delicious and reasonably priced- try the tuna chapati- so good! Curries are about 4/5 gbp and a beer is about a pound....

We had such a good time on our first stay here in October that we wondered if a return could ever live up to our expectations. Shouldn't have worried. From the moment the car door opened, we were greeted with familiar smiles, old friends took luggage away and we had the keys to our bungalow in hand. Evelien and Khun...

Before arriving at this resort we had been to Hong Kong and Bangkok so wanted somewhere we could relax with our 11 year old Son, and this place was absolutely perfect. The staff are genuinely friendly and could not do enough for us, the chalets are gorgeous and the whole resort is beautifully cared for. We took a long boat...

We just returned from our 3 rd visit to this lovely resort. This time we enjoyed an 8 night stay. Aside from the usual wonderful service, clean comfortable bungalows, lovely gardens, terrific restaurant and great pool, now there is a newly opened massage and gym!
