This hotel is located in a beautiful location outside the city of Kanchanaburi on the bank of the river Kwai. The owner is very friendly and made us feel welcome and comfortable and gave us some nice tips and information about the area. The rooms are clean, with a large bathroom, although we found the bed a bit hard to...

Charming little motel just minutes outside of Kanchanburi. Rooms are simple and clean. Food is very good and reasonably priced. Host Dennis and his wife are approachable and genuinely interested in making their guests comfortable. The property is set against the river Kwai and is a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing in the Kanchanburi area.

I'm normally very hard to please and almost always find something to gripe about when staying somewhere, but the for the first time I could find absolutely nothing wrong here! From the service, to the rooms, to the ambience, the food, everything was outstanding, we had such a lovely relaxing break. Here's a bit more info: Rooms: About 10 bungalows...

We were surprised to get a bungalow booking only a week ahead. 'Xanadu' is difficult to find, as it is about 9 kms out of town and as there are no signs on the roads. If you come without your own transport, you rely on a taxi. The resort has about 10 bungalows, most of them semi detached. There is...

Unfortunately we only stayed 2 nights in this beautiful resort. Dennis immediately made us feel at home and was extremely helpful. Nee' s food was some of the best we had on our travels in Thailand. The room was very clean and comfortable. The terrace overlooking the River Kwai is beautiful and so peaceful. There is also a lovely swimming...

Xanadu is a very peaceful 12 bungalow (+/-) resort backing onto the river. The rooms are large and well equipped, there is a restaurant/seating area/bar where you can eat/drink/hang out. It is a friendly place, Dennis and Nee ensure it is so, and a great base to explore the aa. It is ten minutes by cab to get into town...

We stayed at Xanadu for a couple of nights and did a trip out to Erawan and Hellfire pass on the two days we were there. Dennis was great in helping us organise everything and the time we spent back at Xanadu was wonderful. The river view is stunning and the hosts (Dennis and his wife) could not be more...
