We stayed for 1 night at this nice location. Good Service with friendly personnel. We also enjoyed taking a walk to the village behind the rafts. The trip with the long tail boat to the raft was an event. The kids (and husband) enjoyed jumping into the river.

After travelling 32 hours from Jamaica I was really very excited to spend a night at this natural no electricity floating Jungle hotel. We got to the pier after dark, jumped onto a speedboat that was pre-booked for our latest arrival. I wouldn't recommend a night checkin for the faint hearted as we went up river in absolute darkness with... More

We stayed here as part of a two day tour from Bangkok to see the World War II memorials including Hellfire Pass, Bridge over the River Kwai and the Death Railway. We were under no illusion as to what to expect as we knew it would be hot and we knew there was no electricity. We were a bit apprehensive... More

Each cabin has an outdoor seating area and a hammock but also sunbeds at the river. There are local activities that can be booked. The food is average. The mon dancing... More

The first question we were asked when we were booking the trip, "do you know that we have no electricity?" It is a good choice to escape from busy city life. The cost of drinks is quite high in my view. Make sure you bring insect repellent. The staff at the raft provided a great services. The only comment from... More

After a nice ride on a Longtail you come around the bend and there it is. One can sense the peace and quiet that awaits you. And you won't get disappointed. No electricity, very basic rooms, the shower drains into the river below ( biodegradable shampoo is provided). Life vests on and off jumping in the river upstream to climb... More

What a wonderful, moving experience this was. A trip every Australian must do while in Bangkok. Back to basics, learning about other cultures and our history, this trip is very relaxed, educational and fun. Very glad we spent the 3 days, 2 nights here and didn't try to fit it all in, in a day tour. A hugh thank you... More

Beautifull place! Good american breakfast, nice atmosphere with the lamps on oil in the evening, clean rooms. No energy, wifi. When you want to take a shower, the water is from the river (cold). Much animals! Good en a little bit bad ones. Nice elephant in the morning at 7 o'clock!
