Naturally Luxurious
River Kwai Floating Hotel in Kanchanaburi

The Pride of Thailand

One of the best elegant Kanchanaburi hotels-The FloatHouse River Kwai Resort aims to be the world’s best floating resort. 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.

It takes you only a 2.5-hour drive from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi Town, from where you drive for about another 40 minutes towards Saiyok district where you will reach the Phutakien Pier (Resotel pier), our private pier next to Highway 323. Our floatel can only be reached via the river, which makes it so unique. During the short ride (about 7 minutes) on a local long-tailed boat from the Phutakien Pier (Resotel pier) to The FloatHouse River Kwai you will witness beautiful greenery surrounding the historic river. Keep your eyes open and you may see some wildlife along the river.
