WORLD AWARDED ECO FLOATING HOTEL IN KANCHANABURI, THAILAND
Life moves too fast nowadays, let us slow it down for a moment
River Kwai Jungle Rafts Resort offers a unique accommodation experience right on the flowing Kwai Noi River. All floating rooms are tucked into a floating bamboo lodge moored along the historical River Kwai Noi surrounded by lush green mountains and jungle. At our floatel, the historic River Kwai Noi flows underneath your bed. The walls are weaved from local bamboo decorated with wooden furniture reflecting Mon living style. Each is appointed with en-suite private bathroom, balcony and a hammock. Rest. Sleep. Experience.
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.
These lights glowing the night bring the romantic atmosphere throughout the resort. This tropical outpost affords plenty of activities, from to riding a friendly elephant through a Mon traditional village and temples, to enjoying cultural Mon folk dances every evening, to water sports like popular ‘river jump’. Lifejackets are provided in each guestroom. You can simply jump from one end of the floating hotel and float along down the river and climb up at other end.

River Kwai Jungle Rafts is situated in the heart of the dense forest and right on the historic River Kwai. The Jungle Rafts can be easily reached by a wooden long-tail boat, the traditional and local transportation, from the Phutakien Pier (Resotel pier) (see map).
