If you're looking for a nice, quiet stay in an idyllic location, look no further. We spent 3 days and 2 nights at the FloatHouse. Kar met all of our needs, and helped us go on the many mini-trips we planned around the surrounding areas. It has a sister location (the original floating hotels with no electricity), but I think...

The Hotel is very nice,. The only problem was finding the location. It needs a larger sign on the main road for customers who arrive at night time Cannot see the sign. Also not able to swim in the river raw sewage is discharged into it?

The setting is special, quiet and lovely. This is best suited for families and couples. As a solo traveler it was isolating but I booked an all inclusive with tours of the Museum, Railroad, local village. The Thai food was excellent and plentiful. There is no swimming pool. You either float in the river (polluted with motor boat gas, oil,...

I went there with group of friends from USA, who were in Bangkok for a week. So we chose to go there as an overnight breakaway from Bangkok : it's so peaceful, so close to nature. I love the green jungle and the friendly environment. The services was excellent, great choices of food as well which is unexpected! Will definitely...

The Float House is simply incredible, from its location to its accomodation to its staff. The food is also superb. My boyfriend and I couldn't fault anything. What made our trip even more fantastic was our tour guide - he was knowledgable, personable and funny. We couldn't have asked for a better host. I would recommend the Float House to...

At night you will find Unseen view, full of stars in the sky at balcony, and early morning with foggy on top of mountain in front of your bed room. Excellent floating house (room) made me feel clam and warm with wooden furnitures, necessary amenities, open-air rain shower, and swing at terrace. I booked a room with dinner. Dinner was...

The resort is built on floating rafts on the river Kwai. You get there via a 15 mins boat trip up river. Great standard rooms with the option to jump into the river from just outside the bedroom. Food was also excellent. All in all we loved our stay on the river.
