What a stay, a great 15 min boat ride and you arrive at a beautiful location where we spent 2 days relaxing in luxury in a very private oasis on the river. The reception and restaurant are in the middle of all the rooms. It is a little more expensive than other floating hotels but its worth the extra. The...

Good place, good air, just sleep on a swing and release your body and mind. Good location and big room for 2 people. Breakfast is ok. location for breakfast and dinner look good because you 'll see around the river.

Yes, it’s quite expensive, but the experience is well worth it. It really is remarkable to find luxury facilities like these on a river in the jungle. From the moment you arrive, you’re well looked after. The individual float houses are quiet and private, and their design is very beautiful, blending wood, bamboo and rope motifs superbly. The service is...

We are so pleased we visited here and everything from start to finish was wonderful, the ambiance is so relaxing and just mesmerising. We booked the 2 night package which was full board and feel we got real value for money, the only extra cost was for any drinks consumed which were reasonably priced, both at the bar and the...

The resort definitely have good view, nice location and nice scenery. The weather is really hot on May. The air condition is not cold even I open it for many hours. The house is really nice but the high traffic of the speedboat is really annoyed. Every time the speedboat pass the house, the raft is shaking and it is...

The rooms/huts, and location is just stunning. It is really something out of a movie. Very fun to float down the river. Ask for a room up river so you have further to float. You can also go to their sister hotel by boat and float an hour back to your hotel. A few things that need improvement, are the...

We booked (AND paid in full!) the room + dinner ONE YEAR in advance as it was our anniversary. We wanted to make sure, nothing could go wrong..... We really looked forward to staying in this beautiful hotel. So this is what happened: 1) Our reservation was lost and the hotel was fully booked. While that CAN happen – everybody...

Dear Edal05, We would like to say that the missing booking was from your booking agent. It is impossible for us to know about your booking because your booking had never been made to the hotel. We wish you understand the fact of what did happen. We believe this made the stay unfavorable to you and we feel sorry about...

This hotel looks better then in pictures. Room is huge and furnished in a very original way - ropes and wood everywhere, very rustic Thai style that blends with the environment. Some reviewers complained about the noise from the boats. They do not operate over night and the first ones start at 7am. We took Serenata tour which included 2...

Was a beautifully tranquil location. It was a little difficult to get to but was totally worth it. The view from the room was surreal :) My only criticism was that the long boat stops running after 6pm and most excursions would get you back later than 6pm if you wanted dinner out as well... so you almost feel obliged...
