Spent two days here. No electricity, no wi-fi; absolute bliss! Would advise no more than three days here although it has a bar and restaurant. Paid £75 per night for a room with a double and a single bed including breakfast and dinner. We loved it!

We had a two night stay which we throughly enjoyed! We realised how much we take electricity for granted, but this all added to the amazing experience. The setting is beautiful. I could not stress enough how unique this was and would recommend ++++.

I love this place and visited it twice a year for the last 3 years. But guys, what is wrong with your kitchen?? You were serving the best Masaman curry I've even tried in Thailand, but for the last 12 month (I visited your resort twice) it was not served - why not?? This year we even didn't have fish......

We stayed one night at the Jungle Rafts and made the bad mistake of booking to include transport and tours. The bus ride out to the rafts was actually quite good with a very funny informative guide and good stops. We got to the Jungle Rafts by lunch time. This is really where it went down hill for me. As...

Absolutely brilliant. You need to stay at least 2 nights. The staff are wonderful. We sat in the restaurant after dinner and sang with the staff. We had a fantastic time. Back to basics. No hot water no TV, but trust me you will have a great time

I read all the reviews and info and this hotel didn't disappoint. No electricity but the rooms were super comfy and clean. Well appointed. Staff was lovely. Dinner and breakfast was fine but the best part of all was floating down the river from one end of the resort to the other. We had such fun and so did all...

This would have to have been the most incredible experience. After a long boat ride to our accomodation on the jungle rafts for 1 night we settled into our quaint little room and went for a refreshing dip in the river wow what can I say AMAZING. Then we were presented with a scrumptious lunch followed by a relaxing afternoon...

Well that's how our guide described it. There are a number of resorts on the river here. I believe this one is the first. There is no electricity at this one, but it was cool enough to sleep without fan or aircon. Its different. But you can get a cold beer and a good feed. The night dance show, is...
