River Kwai Jungle Rafts is an award-winning floating hotel located on the River Kwai . The Tourism Authority of Thailand acknowledged the resort with their “Unseen Paradise” award, and in 2011, the resort has received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence award. Each of the resort’s 110 guest rooms in this idyllic location offers breathtaking views of tropical forests and mountains.

Accessible only by boat, even before arriving at this tropical resort, guests understand that the River Kwai Resotel is no ordinary resort. Speeding along the River Kwai, surrounded by a landscape covered in lush jungle greenery, it’s clear that a vacation is about to be transformed into something unique. When after just a few minutes, the pier to the resort comes into sight and visitors spot the resort villas nestled into the hill above the river, the excitement intensifies. The tranquil setting, combined with the charm of the resort’s thatch-roof villas and tropical garden ambience, provides the perfect base for exploring the cultural, historic and natural wonders of the area.
