We had booked for 3 days in Kanchanaburi to do the usual attractions and had booked a raft room here. It us a 10 minute ride away from centre of town and each way will cost 150 to 200 baht Tuk Tuk ride so you should factor this in. The site is large and mostly quite peaceful however the accommodation... More

The complex is a little tired and if you or your partner are expecting 4-5 star accommodation, perhaps this isn't for you but the location on the River Kwai is to die for! A/C worked great (which is handy when it's 43 degrees C and 75% humidity in April!) and everything was comfortable!

For us the maing attraction was a nice garden playground for the little one, and a very nice pool area on our doorstep. The rooms have old furniture and are quite basic. The bathrooms are not that clean. Bedding and rowels need replacing. They host Thail parties here on the rafts, fortunately the ended fairly early and actually were very... More

Over the last 5 to 10 years I have stayed in many hotels in Kanchanaburi and always find a reason to return to the Duenshine. At a price of 1500 Baht I personally put it as a 300 Baht room with a 1200 Baht view. Go further down the river and you can pay 12,000 Baht which might suit some... More

Stayed for one night in an overwater raft bungalow. The room was clean and comfortable. Note this is not a luxurious place, rather a simple and peaceful.

I had a pleasant stay here, and despite the initial problems of my bathroom, it was quickly sorted out. Although there were a few problems with bugs and things, when in Thailand, it is to be expected. We are on a river, and with brilliant view. The Raft Houses are very lovely, and adorable to sit on in the evening.... More

I booked one night on a floating house boat which is called Raft house type with a local agency. Already after reading some comments here I was scared what I will see there. Unfortunately this place was so rotten, dirty and full of animals (even in the bed) that I could not stay and had to leave after 5 minutes.... More

An average total experience of stay at the Duenshine Resort. Just sit on the raft bungalow porch and listen to the weird bird song and look at the boats passing by. Breakfast could be better, that´s the only negative thing I can say. The place has a very average restaurant but it is just ok. The place is safe and... More
