A great place for families and couples looking for a jungle get away. The activists they provide include ziplining, canoeing, pool and biking. Only thing I should warn travelers is that the reception for phone service is low. The WiFi did not reach to my room but can sit at the reception area. They shut their WiFi around 9

Unique experience

Posted 29-Mar-2018
Pros: Location
Cons: Bigger pool, food
This resort is located next to a river and to get to the hotel you need to take a boat which was a unique experience. Remember to bring insect repellent as the resort is located within the jungle.

Remote, but not completely remotely located

Posted 15-Feb-2018
It is located at a very beautiful location on the other side of River Kwai Noi. There's nothing much to do around the hotel unless you take the boat to the other side of the river. But the service is flawless. You can take the Hotel's long tail boat at almost anytime until 6pm. Breakfast and Dinner buffet are pretty good. Don't expect to stay in and watch TV in the room because you're supposed to go places. TV reception is bad because it is in the jungle.

so much potential, completely neglected

Posted 04-Jan-2018 on Hotels
the hotel has a lot of potential but unfortunately they seem to get major business through tour groups and don't care about maintenance and upkeep (our first room had a balcony with holes and a bench that broke when a 70kg person was trying to sit. the hotel is reachable by car if driving to lawa cave - as such there's significant traffic considering the location.

Quiet getaway!

Posted 26-Dec-2017
If you are planning your stay at the river kwai properties especially serenata group of hotels - dont book outside tours on that day - just enjoy the facilities and activities at the resort for a day and then check out and head to our outside tours.

Beautiful location

Posted 23-Oct-2017
Pros: The gardens and surrounding area.
Cons: Wifi.
Location: Hellfire pass & museum. A must. And if driving back by car to Bangkok, River Kwai Bridge and the Tiger Temple (fortunately no drugged real tigers!).
Plus: beautiful, well-maintained gardens: don't miss out on walk towards Lava Cave and Gravel Beach. Nice mini-theatre for shows of local minority people dance performances. Rooms afford privacy and are quiet - perfect for a good night's sleep. Minus: despite extensive menu on offer, it's not easy to find healthy, non-oily food options and vegetarians are not catered for at all. No mobile phone, 3G reception. Wifi highly unreliable and only if at all available around lobby area. Apart from the Manager who is very friendly and helpful, staff don't exactly go out of their way to be friendly. A missed opportunity was the fact that the pier on the river was not at all as shown in the picture. It would make such a great dinner venue, but sadly it does not appear to be used for anything other arriving and departing boats. Resort is about 40km from Hellfire Pass & Museum and 70km from Kanchanaburi city and River Kwai bridge. Having your own car is very handy, if not essential in order to visit these sites. But all in all, a perfect getaway for a relaxing stay in a most beautiful part of the country.
