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.
