I went here with my wife and two kids and it is such a nice spot to stay. The staff and owners are all amazingly friendly. The food was tasty. The pool was never crowded and relaxing and now they have a spa and work out room. It's a great getaway from Bangkok and they will arrange a quite reasonable...

What a spot! Beautiful oasis off of a small 'country road' just west of Kanchanaburi town. This couple are doing everything well: - beautiful & comfortable setting, with a pool, river view seating, lots of lush, healthy greenery all around - quality food and drink, including an included breakfast with a good variety of choices - clean, very comfortable rooms,...

We stayed here for 4 nights in two of the 'cottages' available. The resort was impeccably maintained and was very obvious that a lot of thought and care had gone into it. The restaurant overlooks the river and is all wood focused with traditional wooden seating and tables (cushions provided!) Food is of a great standard with plenty of choice...

Our second visit to Kanchanaburi, this time for a longer five night stay, solely because we wanted to return to Oriental Kwai. And the reason it was even better ------ the massage parlour and gym that were added since our last visit. To have a massage on arrival was just bliss, after travelling all the way from UK. But this...

We stayed two nights in room #1, the villa with the best river view. From check-in to check-out, Evelien and the Oriental Kwai Resort staff went out of there way to make our stay perfect. Beyond the gorgeous setting and beautiful clean rooms, it was the little things that really stood out. -We arrived after midnight and there was someone...

We stayed 5 nights at Oriental Kwai and loved every minute. Beautiful gardens, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, great food at reasonable prices and lovely pool area. What more could you ask for! Breakfast in particular was lovely with a menu of choices and beautiful fresh fruit. The owner was very helpful both with changes to our booking in the lead...

This is a small hotel with individual cottages set in wonderful grounds. There was a lovely welcome and we were shown quickly to our cottage. The cottages were spacious and well appointed. The restaurant has a wonderful view of the river, what a place to eat breakfast and dinner. The food was good, varied and excellent value for money. Take...

An excellent hotel. 12 rooms allows for the personal touch - nothing is too much for the very helpful, friendly and polite staff. The choice of food and drink was excellent and very reasonably priced. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and welcoming. Attention to the finer details both in service and accommodation make this one of the best places...

Loved this beautiful Resort right beside the river Kwai. Nice, clean comfortable little houses. Beautifully landscaped. The owners were fabulous. Breakfast choices were delicious. We stayed in a 2 room house and had plenty of room for all 5 of us.
