Great location for Kwai experiences. Welcome non alcoholic punch on arrival and lovely air conditioned room providing a comfortable stay. The pool was divine but I should say the highlight was really the restaurant I had sampled most restaurants on my trip but this surpassed all my expectations . Service was superb and all food exquisite. My choice of snakehead...

I do not understand how this "resort" is rated 3rd in Kanchanaburi. The other places must be of very poor quality. The only big positives are the location on the river, beautiful landscaping, and lovely pool. Of course the location is also a negative because you are a 15 minute drive from town which is inconenient if you do not...

We selected this hotel on a trip to the bridge on the river kwai and the other attractions in the area. We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and were very pleased to have chose this resort. It is located about 3 miles from the attractions in Kanchanaburi but as we had our own transport this was not a...

We stay at the Royal River Kwai Resort & Spa for two nights. Our first impression with the Resort was very positive in seeing the well maintained garden and pool. The resort annexing to several villas occupied a rather sizable track of land enable for the guests to stroll around the garden as well as along the river. However we...

The hotel is not really well-located, far from Kanchanabury downtown. So, you will have to pay for every transportation. But it's quiet and on the kway river's board. We liked: - the swimmingpool which is large and wonderful, - the opportunity to take a dinner on the Kway river's board (but it's 10 percent more expensive) - the room, spacy...

Rooms well maintained, nice garden, nice thai restaurant, nice views of the river, nice pool... and good location to river kwai bridge. Not suitable for more than two nights since it is kind of long drive to natural parks. Good recommendation!

The location of the hotel is amazing since you are sourrounded by nature. Take into consideration that in order to reach the resort you will have to take a tiny boat and make a 15 min trip from the place where buses stop. The swimming pool was a susprising gift after all the day walking around during excursions. In regards...

The hotel grounds are very lush and well maintained. Nice and large pool in the middle of the compound. The rooms well kept and maintained, spotless clean and decorated to reflect the local community . The only point to comment on it, is the TV channel selection, they are all selected for the local travelers.

This hotel located near the Kwai yai river and only 15 mins from river kwai bridge by drive.(famous bridge in here) This resort is very good, quite and a good place for relaxing with a large pool. The room is very gooooood i really like it. Only one thing is you need a car to go some where.
