Unique location. Long tail river boats to ferry you back to land. Stunning position. Loved the accommodation. Sitting on the deck watching the river pass by. Tranquil There aren't many hotels like this to stay in.

We travelled with #Audley so they made the travel arrangements. We drove down to the river and boarded a long tail boat and then it was about a 20 minute ride to the float house. First impression you can't really explain as it is just so stunning. Check in was very quick and were were shown to our room. There...

The villa float on a river surrounded by thick green jungle. Outstanding service from the freindly staff. Rooms are elegant, clean and well equipped. Each villa has private balcony and pier...

Flowing down the river! The...

I got to stay here only one night as part of a tour and wish I got to stay longer. You arrive by a Thai long boat to the fantastic hidden actually floating hotel. The rooms are huge and you have a porch with a swing over the river. There is an outdoor shower. The rooms are actually over the...

I understand the difficulties and economics of trying to run a high end hotel in a remote area. Our tour company, guide and driver got us to and from two nights at FloatHouse without the issues that others have had. We had good internet connections during our stay when it was dry but very hot (lows of 72 F, highs...

Amazing experience. Firstly after arrival at Resotel Pier we were transferred to the hotel via longtail boat, the views are lovely, an awesome way to transfer to the resort. The floating lodges are stunning both in and outside. The interior all wooden with ropes was a beautiful effect. The rooms have a big bed in the centre of the room...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, we booked directly with the hotel and did the two night delights package. We were picked up promptly from our hotel in Bangkok and our journey and tour in Kanchanaburi were all very good and well planned. After our visit to the Bridge we swapped from our group tour to our own...

Wow what an amazing location! We couldn't fault the hotel however the rooms could do with some slight updating! Some of the linen had an old / musty smell which isn't great. Great service by all staff and the food was also excellent!
