Our family of 5 is often hard to accommodate in one room so I was happy to have found this resort. The family was ecstatic that the room offers us ample space - firm and comfortable beds - awesome menu options for all meals throughout the day and excellent food! Great pool for some leisure time in a beautiful surrounding....

This was our third visit to Oriental Kwai. It is our favourite place to stay in Thailand and is absolutely superb. The owners Evelien and Djo are so helpful, they really can't do enough for you. The food and service is excellent; the bungalows are clean and spacious and have everything you need. Ours was also looked after by one...

Our stay in Kanchanaburi province was wonderfully enhanced by this resort. The bungalows/chalets are spacious and well-appointed, the charming open-air restaurant overlooks the river, the food is delightful, and the tropical gardens are lovely (with little touches of whimsy). The pool looked inviting. It would be entirely possible to just relax at the resort, and not visit all the scenic,...

It's hard to imagine this place being any better! It's an oasis with lovely gardens and well appointed cabin style rooms with an onsite restaurant and spa. We had only planned to stay two nights. Our main reason for visiting was to tour the museums and see the bridge over the river Kwai. We decided to take the train from...

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...
