Kanchanaburi, Thailand

The FloatHouse River Kwai Resort is a fancy boutique hideaway and can be found in very few places in the world. The only way to reach the resort is by boat as it actually floats on a flowing river surrounded by thick green jungle. Each luxurious and spacious floating villa is totally private and rich in custom tailored-made teakwood furniture with thatched roofing. The design is delightfully impressive with exotic decorations including natural materials and ropes. The design concept for the resort is known as “Contemporary Boutique Folk Style,” for a smooth blend of local artistic traditions with the natural environment, yet different from anywhere else in its characteristic rope designs that convey an oriental air. Guests can enjoy amazing panoramic scenery from the swing chair on each private outdoor veranda by the River Kwai. The signature views of the resort are those of the rocky cliff on the opposite side of the river. Here the visitor experiences an incredibly cool and refreshing atmosphere and the luscious cool of streams while surrounded by every comfort and convenience. Developed with the eco-conscious in mind, The FloatHouse River Kwai Resort is built from local materials and it is staffed mainly by the local community.
Besides pure relaxation and comfort, The FloatHouse River Kwai Resort offers plenty of excursions and sightseeing providing guests with a destination rich in nature, history and culture. It really has everything: views of lush forests, towering limestone mountains, a historic river, and tremendously interesting activities on both water and land. Elephant rides. Rafting downstream. Kayaking. Stalactites and Stalagmites Cave exploration. Riding mountain bikes. On and on, including sightseeing trips to temples and a Mon tribal village.
