It is almost an authentic ‘Out of Africa’ experience – only in Thailand.
The unique River Kwai Jungle Rafts installation is a ‘flotel’, i.e. a hotel built on a raft, which is sure to redefine your perception of luxury. The flotel is permanently moored on the River Kwai, linked to the banks by a gangway. >From the seating areas, you can look out over the river, the giant bamboo on the banks, and the wild orchids growing in the forked branches of the trees.
Just a short distance from the hotel stands an ethnic ‘Mon’ village, that you are welcome to visit. The Mon people originally stem from Myanmar, and many Mon men work as mahouts, which explains why you will see elephants in the village. You can also go canoeing on the river, try your hand at fishing, take a refreshing swim, relax in the sun or explore the nearby grottoes. When the velvet tropical night sinks over the landscape, the jungle sounds become magical and a romantic mood sets in. The cicadas start to chirp, someone in the village begins to play traditional music, and the water gurgles beneath the flotel, which is illuminated exclusively by oil lamps.
The hotel features two sections and a total of 100 rooms which are sparsely furnished, with no electricity, no TV, no minibar and no Wi-Fi. The bathroom and toilet facilities are very simple, too, and there is only cold water in the shower.
A stay at River Kwai Jungle Rafts is a ‘back to basics’ experience to cherish for a lifetime!
