The Float House River Kwai Resort

A stunning resort located along a river, the Float House River Kwai Resort grants guests endless amounts of outdoor activities to enjoy, both on the resort's property and just beyond. Here you'll find a row of overwater villas that sit on the edge of the river, allowing each and every guest a view of the river and lush greenery surrounding it from both their room and private balcony. The view inside of each overwater villa might be just as impressive with teak wood furniture throughout, bright colors, large, tall ceilings, and a Folk styling.

When venturing outside of each villa, guests will find lots of great activities and amenities, ranging from the various tours and excursions nearby, both on land and in the water, to the dining options and the on-site spa which offers massages. You'll also find fishing opportunities along with sun bathing and garden walks. Though the nightly rates for this resort are budget friendly, you'd be hard pressed to call this a budget resort. At this resort, you'll find a pleasant combination of luxury and comfort, mixed together with the natural beauty that surrounds each room.


The Float House River Kwai Resort is located along the River Kwai in the Saiyoke district, Kanchanaburi province in Thailand.

What the reviews say

Reviews for this resort are very positive, with almost every aspect of the resort liked by guests. Firstly, the location of the resort is detailed as stunning and magical by lots of past guests. The rooms are considered top notch, large, airy, and all around beautiful. The same can be said about the private terraces, as some visitors said it was hard to do anything else but look out at the river enjoying the view.

Some feel that the food was a little disappointing, but on the other hand, some guests thought it was great, so it really comes down to personal preferences.
