Discover Le Bassin Erawan Resort, a place of relaxation near the city of Kanchanaburi. Comprised of 14 bedrooms, tastefully styled, and four tents with attached private bathrooms, Le Bassin offers a beautifully designed resort hidden away in the heart of the River Kwai. Le Erawan Resort is named after the series of water lilies painting, Le Bassin Aux Nympheas (meaning “water lily pond”) by French Impressionist artist Claude Monet. The resort is nestled around similar water lily ponds and the rooms are specifically situated along the water, offering a peaceful and private place to unwind. Located a few hours west of Bangkok, this location is perfect for a quick escape to the country, or a relaxing place if you’re flying into Bangkok and looking for a tranquil and peaceful location. We are delighted to give our guests free use of our two kayaks, allowing you to explore further along the river. We also offer a unique lunchtime experience on our floating raft. Our dishes will be provided to your party while you are towed along the river, with a chance to refresh yourself in the water afterwards – we guarantee this will be one of the most spectacular meals ever experienced! If you venture further afield, you can explore the natural wonders, including Erawan Waterfalls and the National Park, or find yourself feeding and bathing elephants by hand at the elephant sanctuary. You can also visit the Bridge over the River Kwai, notorious for its erection in World War 2, and you can visit the museum and war cemetery as well.
