Absolutely lovely. I'm not sure why some poor reviews🤔 it's everything it said in the description. It's an experience you will never forget. Our guide made sure we was well looked after. There is no electricity no wifi so it's up to you to make the most of it. 2 days is enough. We was picked up from our hotel...

Our stay at the jungle rafts was definitely something we could tick off our bucket list of things to do,from leaving Thonbuti station in Bangkok to arriving 5 hours later at Nam Tok station every part of the journey opens your eyes to a different Thailand,The excitement of arriving at the pier to being taken by boat and seeing the...

We went on a arranged trip to Jungle raft hotel. We were picked up at our hotel in Bangkok at 6 o´clock in the morning, as we were told. So far, so good. We went to a bigger bus and there we were waiting and waiting....We left Bangkok 9 o´clock! So we had been sitting for three hours in a...

A rather nice place and really the tourist guide Sam who works at the hotel was amazing. He really helped us with our trip to Myanmar in organizing a driver and even escorting us to the border. Great! However I must admit I was not the biggest fan of dinner there and the rest of the staff seemed rather uninterested...

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.

For those who are game for nature and basics, this is a must visit resort. The place is clean and the whole resort is floating at the river bank of River Kwai. All meals are inclusive, but there is no electricity supply, so make sure you fully charged your cameras and does not miss any good shots. I made the...

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...
