This beautiful resort was everything that has been written and more. The cabins were tastefully decorated and welcoming, clean, with a veranda to relax and soak in the beauty of the gardens and picture perfect landscaping. Our cabin No. 7 - had our own long walkway and fish filled pond, so lovely to sit and bask in the exotic surroundings. The owners Evelyn and her husband were more like friends than managers/owners of the resort, their children happily playing and Evelyn always ready with a smile and friendly chat. Our only regret is that we did not have more time to spend and hopefully will return one day to this little piece of paradise beside the Kwai river. The only suggestion, not complaint, is that the entrance sign be more easily seen or larger, as this is a place that you don't want to waste a minute of not arriving as soon as you can.
