JUNGLE FLOATING RESORT WITH LOCAL EXPERIENCES
River Kwai Jungle Rafts Resort offers a authentic floating accommodation experience. All floating rooms are tucked into a floating bamboo lodge moored along the historical River Kwai Noi surrounded by lush green mountains and jungle. Each is appointed with en-suite private bathroom, balcony and a hammock.
Due to our ecology conservation concept, the entire floatel does NOT use electricity but rather utilizes traditional kerosene lamps at night maintaining a true eco hideaway in nature. Read >> Living without electricity and internet in the present world.
All guest rooms (~ 28 sq.m.) are actually floating right on a fast flowing historic river, River Kwai. River Kwai Jungle Rafts is an authentic relaxing getaway. This floatel desires to bring you to get close to the nature; get back to the basics and learn the culture. The floating accommodation is well decorated with the concept of Mon traditional housing. In-room furniture are also designed and made here by Mon local villagers. While staying at the floating wooden raft, you will feel closer to the nature and abandon all the busy things behind.

Back to the 1900! This is a very idyllic place. The location in and on the jungle valley river Kwai is very special, and the amazing exotic wood crafted hotel makes you feel that you have traveled back in time to the late 1890’s. Especially at night when everything is illuminated by kerosene lamps only
Fun Fun Fun.
Wonderful place. Love jumping in the river. Real fun. Food is very nice. At night when candles are lighted up, it’s very romantic”
One of the best experiences. This location is excellent. First you go with a longboat on the river and they bring you after a trip of 20 minutes to the jungle rafts in the middle of nowhere on the river. The view is very beautiful and although the rooms have no luxury of television or minibar, but the luxury of the sounds of nature and the relaxation of the environment. I sure want to go here again and than for more than for 2 or 3 days.
A fantastic experience, right from the very start when you have to board a boat to get there…Certainly worth a visit if you are looking for relaxation and something a little bit different.
Incredible River Kwai Jungle Rafts. We stayed at the River Kwai Jungle Rafts for the second time. This time we took or adult children with us. They were very dubious, especially the youngest with having no hot water or electricity. They all absolutely loved it, wishing their stay was longer. The food and service was amazing….
Many thanks for this eye opener. It was wonderful.
Had a great stay. Very interesting. The guides were great. Loved going to the village.
Thanks for a good time
The elephant bath was fantastic. The food was very yummy. Loved the whole experience & can’t wait to come back
It is with much sadness that we must leave this wonderful part of the world behind. What an amazing few days we have had amongst beautiful people. Thank you to everyone that has made it possible … We will miss this place but it will be etched in our memories forever.
WoW, What an amazing place, with amazing people. Thank you all so much for sharing your unique patch of Thailand paradise with us. It’s with a sad heart that we must leave, but with a better outlook in our minds. Thanks also Pai for being such as good host. Thailand has to be the most beautiful country we have visited so far.
We had a great time at this beautiful place.
Excursions were really interesting. Managers were nice and you staff was very friendly.
We will surely come back here !!!

Eco-friendly & relaxing Paradise!
I have never seen anything like this before. This eco-friendly hotel floats on the river. Literally! It was built entirely on floating rafts, which means the hotel moves to the rhythm of the water, especially every time a boat drives nearby and gives birth to waves. As soon as we got there, we were welcomed by the receptionist and Moon people- River Kwai Jungle Rafts is also a big believer in social responsibility. They built a school, accommodations, and a temple for locals (Moon Village) and work exclusively with them. Our room was small yet astonishing, with floors made of recycled wood leaving 2-inch spaces between each wood piece for all guests to see and hear the river flow beneath them. There is also no electricity at the hotel but it offers kerosene lamps at night. All to practice what they preach: ecology conservation. Even though there is no electricity, none is really needed. Our 28sq m. room had big windows and a tiny yet cozy balcony that let air and light in. Each room has also access to a bamboo pier, and each balcony has comfy hammocks you can enjoy the sunsets on. Another fun trait about this hotel is that it floats on a river stream, which means guests can use the life vests the hotel offers, walk to the beginning of the hotel, jump in the water and let the current take them all the way to the end of the hotel. We did this and it was so much fun!! You have to have caution though, because if you miss holding on to the last bamboo pier’s climbing latter, you might float until the nearest hotel or have to use all your strength to swim back against the current. That almost happened to us but it wasn’t scary at all. On the contrary, it was so entertaining, relaxing and adventurous that my friend and I couldn’t stop laughing while we gather strength to swim back and climb the piers’ latter while the river splashed against us. We felt like kids wanting to jump in the river over and over again. The food at the hotel was pretty good too! Simple but delicious. Thai food, of course. There are options for everyone: vegan, vegetarian and carnivores. Just make sure you let them know before hand, especially for vegans and vegetarians. The dinning area has a lovely view of the river, and surrounds a cocktail bar. A few steps to the left of it, is the Thai massage area. This was my favorite part of the hotel! No windows, no walls, just old recycled wood floors, bamboos ceilings and mattresses laying on the floor one next to the other. The prices were, as everything in Thailand, surprisingly cheap! My friend and I got the facial-Thai massage-reflexology 2-hour package for only 900BHT (between $25-$29, depending on the exchange rate) and it was AMAZING!!! So good and relaxing- pressing on different points of my body- that I fell asleep within the first 15 minutes and woke up an hour later totally renewed during River Kwai’s majestic sunset. Next to the Thai massage area is a tiny bungalow that serves coffee 24/7. Another favorite spot of mine! You can get fresh brewed coffee for around 20BHT (Not even $1).
Besides these, there are plenty of other activities you can enjoy like canoeing in the river, mountain climbing, Moon dance shows at night, or paying the Moon Village a visit. We did the last one. It was bittersweet. You will learn a lot from the kids and will have a great time playing with them but you will also see two elephants they use for elephant riding. They were chained to a tree and it tore my heart to pieces. PLEASE do NOT support the elephant riding activities. The industry and training behind them is beyond cruel, guys. If you want to see elephants, do it the right way: in the wild where they can roam free. There are elephant sanctuaries everywhere in Thailand. The one I visited was called Save The Elephants Foundation
