It was really a great experience to spend your holiday disconnected from wifi and electricity. With easy jungle walk, natural surroundings and you can see the stars at night. As the whole place is lighted up with hurricane lamp.....and you get a chance to smells kerosene, which most would have forgotten how it smell.

Suggestive location, great and funny adventure, calm, service, really kind staff and great food. The Jungle Rafts is properly organized, a must-do experience! You can also go walking through the local village and the forest, visiting the local temple, the amazing viewpoint near the cliff, the village.. meeting local people, animals and tasting a real part of Thailand. The long-boat...

The rafts were absolutely beautiful and if its relaxation that you are after then, this is what you will get. Floating down the river in lifejackets was a great experience and just watching the river float by was enough for me. We stayed 3 nights, but my teenage sons, thought that 2 nights would probably have been better as they...

We thought we'd have trouble getting here from Bangkok but it couldn't have gone smoother (they have directions on their website) we took a 4 hour train from thonburi as soon as we got off their are shared taxis that will take you to the resortel pier, where the long boats for jungle rafts come every hour, we were lucky...

This hotel looks romantic but is not and it is not worth the money in my opinion. Also if you consider environmental issues you should avoid this hotel. The rooms are very basic and there is no electricity at this hotel (this was known before) therefore there is almost no light in the room since the lamps which are provided...

The hotel was a bit hard to find, but you have to go there by boat from a pier. Quite unique setting, lovely small cabins with bathroom etc. All amenities except ... electricity. But they supply ample oil lamps etc. Food was good, plate service and more (extra) dishes on demand. BEWARE: you have to pay cash on the spot...

this is definitively a great spot to stay for a couple of nights just relaxing by the Kway riverside. Beautiful landscape with the chance to know the surroundings, including the nearby village and their people. Having no electricity just makes this place even more mystical.

Location was stunning but relaxing definitely not, it felt like camping in a bus station. Endless water taxis from about 7am to 7pm stoping on the rafts The smell of deisal is choking and the noise deafening Food great but cold Real shame as looked so peaceful when we arrived but far from it

The hotel was excellent and really cool. It's neat being able to float down the river from one end to the other whenever you want. Our guide to the waterfall and through the village was excellent and informative. The add-on tours, however, were not. You are on a double decker bus with people from the property's other hotels. Every stop...

My family really enjoyed our stay at River Kwai Jungle Rafts. The ability to just jump off the dock then float down the river to the end dock and climb back on was a huge hit. Really enjoyed the kayak trek as well. The food was plenty and well prepared but spice level was very low for Thai food. But...
