The Felix River hotel and spa is situated directly on the River Kwai on a vast piece of prime property 10 minutes walk from famed Bridge over the River Kwai (which can be reached from the Hotel's front entrance).
It is a real surprise and true "find". An immense "gem" tastefully, thoughtfully designed and expertly maintained and managed. Rooms are huge as are bathrooms (with tubs). Dark hard wood floors, simple decor pleasing to the eye but not overly done or overly embellished. Rooms face either the river or the hotel's gorgeous interior garden. It is impossible to say which location is best. They both meet (if not exceed) expectation.
The magic is best captured when one enters the interior of the hotel. Beyond the interesting lobby with a myriad of nooks and private crannies for lounging, tall ceilings and 3 restaurants, one arrives at a the heart of the gem: a lush, vast tropical garden. This streak of tropical gardening genius is surrounded by a huge swimming pool that winds prominently through the garden augmented by natural streams, small fountains, birds, and butterflies. A large lap pool is tucked at one end of the complex for serious exercise.
Along the hotel's back side on the river is a brick path dotted by numerous places to lounge and relax and watch river life float by. The setting feels like a private spa. While large enough to keep one's eye entertained, it is also tranquil, a place to truly relax and unwind.
Off season rates make it a real bargain and value for money. While high season prices are substantial, the quality and generally high standard nonetheless make it worthwhile.
