Don't expect luxury here, but instead be ready for a unique experience on a wonderful location on the river surrounded by green hills. At night, when darkness falls and all the lamps are lit up, you can enjoy life without the hassle of the city and internet and messaging. Staff consists of people from the Mon village next to the...

Like knowing I've ever experienced. An outstanding stay. Transportation and accommodations and staff were all excellent. Details were everywhere, from evening lighting of the lanterns to life jackets used to swim the river from the floating hotel. Dinning al fresco was delicious. Go go go do this and stay two nights.

My husband and I were so excited to leave the busy streets of Bangkok and spend 2 days and one night at this floating hotel on our honeymoon. We were impressed wit the hotel and it exceeded our expectations, however the tour was a huge letdown. The rooms in the hotel were small but don't need to be large. Don't...

My husband and I spent 2 nights on the Jungle Raft Floatel and had a lovely time. There is no power or hot water for shower but you do have a bed and a normal toilet, so it's a bit like camping with a few luxuries. Food was great and plenty of it. Staff were very friendly. Our tour and...

Nice place, poor standard. Be sure you have enough cash (credit cards are not exepted at the restaurant) and an organized transport to the next destination, otherwise they rip you off! Think twice!!!!

Room-wise a bit basic, as the hotel has no electric. But the room was clean and had private bathroom. You will get a small flash-light and there is a oil-lamp for every room. As there is nothing nearby and the only way to get there is by boat, they hotel serves breakfast, lunch and diner. All plate service and of...

For a family with 4 children we needed 3 rooms. The boat trip was very Nice. Although it is the only way to get there you still have to pay for this as Well. The fun was to jump into the river kwai on one end with a lief jacket, and come out the other end. An experience of a...

The jungle rafts are great, completely within nature and no electricity available puts you back to basic. It is fun to jump into the river and get caught by the very strong current; be careful to grab the last stairs.

This is very beautiful natural place,only 1 step from your room to swim in Kwae river. Only one disadvantage that is the room doesn't privacy, you can hear everything from beside room.This is very beautiful natural place.only 1 step from your room to swim.

There dinner was amazing and they just kept offering more so you would not go hungry and it was delicious. The wet floor and constant running up and down of children for the river swim made it less peaceful. The Mon village is a short stroll and great place to spend some time. The rooms where basic but nice only...
