This is an amazing place. Nothing like any other. To fall asleep and only hearing nature and the river floating underneath your bed is truly an amazing experience! It's not luxurious .. There is no electricity, no warm shower, no air conditioning .. But a great adventure! I would recommend staying here for 1 or 2 nights .. You will...

We stayed here for one night as part of an organised trip to include the museum, war cemetery, bridge Over the river Kwai and Hellfire Pass. Fantastic and interesting tour. But the jungle Rafts were exquisite, very pretty and although basic had everything we needed. We were aware they had no electricity but actually enjoyed the fact that we could...

I wasn't sure what to expect, or really how I would get there but it was easy in the end. The rafts are stable, the room clean, the food good. The Mon village is a nice stroll through and my canoe guide to the Lava caves was fantastic.

An absolutely stunning location on the River Kwai. The rafts couldn't be better placed. The whole set up of the huts was lovely, they were big and spacious. Depending on which one you were in (There are 4 rooms per raft) you had a table and chairs outside, a hammock, as well as your own personal hammock the back. There...

Great place and atmosphere. No electric and no air con but made up for by the ambience of the place. Food simple but good quality. Oil lit lamps and candles everywhere in the evenings. Quiet by 11pm at the latest.

Good experience to have. Good service, Manager and staffs were friendly. Food was ok. I don't like hot and sweaty weather so I recommend to go there at winter time or a bit before winter time. Great overall. I'll definitely go back there again at winter time. I also think that it's romantic for couples too.

We spend one night in this hotel and we have to be honest the surrounding of the hotel is really wonderful and peaceful. We took a bath in the river and it was really enjoyable. Also spend one night without electricity is a good experience and the room are charming. But we think that the hotel is a little bit...

I stayed at this hotel one night in November 2013. We were group of 25 peoples. Exotic hotel on the water in the jungle without electricity. Lighting only oil lamps, but the rooms orderly and pleasant. With toilet and shower. Good, tasty dinner and breakfast. After several days of traveling through Thailand was a nice evening to sit on the...
