Just go, that's all I can say! Brilliant experience, beautiful surroundings. Sam, our guide, made it even more special, thanks Sam! More "back to nature" then we expected (no hot water etc) but that made it even better! Do more then 1 night if you can, you will wish you had

Great trip with absolute relax moment especially the Mon's village where you can find interesting culture and more inspiration for refresh your mind yet makes you ready to fully re-charge your battery life which you need for your work

We just stayed one night at the Jungle Raft. From Kanchanaburi, we got a private transfer (1,200 baht) and connected seamlessly with the long tail boat to the lodge. The boats ran earlier than 12:00, which was the earliest indicated time on the website. We did not book any tours with the resort, so we just spent most of the... More

Labelled as adventure raft and eco friendly so not sure what to expect . Happy to be detached from wi fit for a couple of days. Seems to me that the hotel has simply not moved ahead with the times and somehow did not manage to fulfil its apparent mission. All rooms had ensuite facilities with shower near to the... More

Everything about Jungle Rafts was perfect! From the moment we got on our free longtail boat transfer to the rafts, to the warm welcome we received, absolutely delicious Thai food throughout our stay and warm, friendly service and atmosphere. We could not recommend this place more highly. We sadly only stayed one night but would not hesitate to come back.... More

My wife and I had 3 nights in Bangkok as the entry level to our first Thailand experience. After touring for 3 days, Kings palace, markets, River Kwai Bridge, Hellfire Pass etc we were transported to the wharf where we experienced a 20 minute long tail ride up the river Kwai to the Jungle Rafts. Our first sight of these... More

The resort is a bit far from bangkok and I felt the package schedule is a bit tight for relaxing. (I bought half board package) I reached the transfer boat at 3 pm. but it's too hot at the resort (my trip is on the beginning of october 2016 which should be raining to winter season). The weather is good... More

I have to preface this by saying I thought I had booked at the Float House down the River. I was booking literally days before our trip so I was rushed in my bookings and clearly wasn't paying close attention. I believe these hotels are run by the same company so I had seen pictures of the other place and... More
