My wife and I stayed overnight whilst on our 2 day tour of the Burma railway & Hell fire pass. Good basic food. No mosquitoes or bugs. Kerosine lights at night - no electricity. Visit of the local village worthwhile. Elephants came down to the river in the morning to be bathed! Comfortable bed with huge mozzie net. Basic bathroom - cold water only. Shower water just went between the foorboards into the river - loved it. Overall a must do experience. The 30 minute trip in the longboat fun too

“Wish we had stayed 2 nights”

We spent one evening here and it was blissful! Each raft holds about 4 cabins, each of which has a bedroom and a very basic bathroom (each raft has its own septic tank so effluent is not going untreated into the river).

“Upscale jungle camping”

Imagine the delight after a speedy Longboat trip up the River Kwai to step aboard an array of bamboo rafts, with a restaurant (and great Thai meals) shady thatched verandahs and comfortable bures complete with ensuites and mosquito nets.


Marie W from Melbourne, Australia

“Enchantment on the Water”

We stayed in River Kwai Jungle Rafts and enjoyed it greatly. Friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, good dinner, elephants bathing in the morning, very good sleep, refreshing river,... no single remark to make. One suggestion : try not to have the first two or the last to rooms as this is the place where the guests jump in the river and get out of it. ( Juming in the river and floating is great fun )
