Room and food is clean with buffets (soft taste for foreigner) But a bit not comfortable because of no fan, air condition in room Suitable for who want to relax in peaceful & natural place and stay for many stars at night.

The idea around this resort (no electricity- far away in harmony with mother nature) was a good one and we were really looking forward to it. The boat trip to the place is full of promises. You take a 15-minute boat ride on the beautiful river Kwai surrounded by the nature. You feel peaceful. Then the resort appears, it looks...

I have stayed in this resort for three times. I always enjoy the ambiance of this resort. Worth a visit if you want to stay for a night in Kanchanaburi. As there is no electricity in this resort, charge your mobiles upfront and get a good power bank if possible. For those who enjoy music along with the nature, this...

We were three families, and since its a basic property with heavenly views and location, we didn't expect much. This was the best swimming experience for us for life.... carried our own food, and staff was very courteous to arrange the same, BLY was the best person among the staff,

We stayed at the River rafts for 2 nights, with our 4 children. It was perfect! The location is so unique. It is such an amazing experience & best of all there was no wifi & no electric! Swimming in the River Kwai is something my children will never forget. We loved mooching around the mon village too. Hotel drinks...

Quite an experience living without electricity. I really want to read at night (nothing to do) and very difficult to stay longer. Sweat all day and night, shower is the solution. I like boat trip to the rafts, good views. Elephant drop by in the morning. Not so private terrace. Our room is at the end of row, the place...

If you really want to get away from it all, then this is your place. No electricity, No hot shower, No TV, No mobile signal, No Wifi, Paraffin lighting, basic needs catered for and nowhere to go except on the raft and in the river. It is really secluded and you have to be ready for ice cold showers, a...

Yes the view and the fact that the hotel doesn't have the electricity is charming but the room are very dark (even during day time), hot as hell, and there is absolutely no privacy. You can hear your neighbor talking, breathing and going to the toilet (they can hear you too). So really don't understand what justify the price of...

Awesome for a real break and the great nature around you, the boat trip to reach the charming hotel, the funny swim in the river, the pure traditional thai massage, the very good dinner, the elephant feeding after breakfast, the Mon village and no electricity, no wifi !!!... But it could be better with more intimacy (all rooms too closer)...
