Be mindful of where you are. Swim in the hotel pool. Nature can be wonderful or you can fill and see the creepy crawly things. The hotel is on the River Kwai. There is everything tropical or jungle with green gardens, mountains, sounds of the night, and bugs. The cabins are very good. Learn where the light and air condition...

We spent our last night in town here and we wished we would have found it sooner. The room and the grounds were beautiful. The location was a little out of the way but the services offered made up for it.

Great and beautiful location. The wifi was not working, so no internet access at the resort. Prices of the stay are super high, for Thai standards. We had a room with 3 beds, for 3 persons, but only 2 towels, 2 glasses, 2 soap, etc. No welcome drink. Orange juice at breakfast is sugary orange lemonade. Alltogether, this resort was...

This Resort is quite unique. We traveled here by boat and stayed in a Thatched Roof Cottage. It was somewhat "tired" but somewhat comfortable. There was a "reasonable" breakfast, included, and a fairly priced dinner available.

Situated on a river it gives the impression of being well away from civilization, my impressions come from one a night stay, we took in our suit cases when we should have taken just overnight bags. It appeared that the bulk of residents were over 40. 3 days relaxing would have been nice. Food was good, internet worked for us,...

The garden (this is not jungle) is great and beautiful. The food itself and the prices of the food and of the rooms are ok but the prices of activities are 10 times higher than average with no reason!?! For example kayaking in Krabi is 200 bats for the first hour and 100 bats for each consequitiv hour, while in...

Dear Gogo K, Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your opinions. As the matter of fact, comparing the prices between 2 different locations is simply not valid. It is the economics - demand and supply. Our costs are probably higher than Krabi province where you also have a number of suppliers competing each other. The costs of...

This is a a peaceful hotel-resort where people sleep in duplex huts...it has great ambiance....It has a single pool to lounge in, and for the adventurous, a walking path to a cave. You take a boat to get to the resort, which is on a peninsula.... This is a great hotel for younger folks but not good for the old...
