As the name suggests, The Float House River Kwai, is a hotel located on one of Thailand’s most famous rivers. The scenic beauty and the rich history of the place make for an interesting option for your next travel destination.
Surrounded by thick, green tropical jungles in a private area only reachable by boat, the floating eco-lodge resort features graceful local decorations, warm Thai hospitality and a general feeling of luxury living in the tropics. The unmatchable combination offers travellers the ultimate experience in one of Kanchanaburi’s most sought after properties.
The Float House River Kwai features 20 Thai folk style designed wooden villas that float above the river, each complimented with teakwood furniture. The spacious 67 square meter accommodation is also inclusive of an expansive private balcony and pier, complete with deck chairs and additional furniture. All thatched roofed lagoons feature the necessary amenities and comforts needed for a high end stay in Thailand’s rain forest.
Some may choose to jump in the river right from their resort’s balcony. Others may opt for a swim in the resort’s lagoon swimming pool instead; complete with beautiful wooden deck and lush green scenery surroundings.
Guests can suntan outside their villa and activities such as bamboo rafting, jungle hiking and bird watching can also be arranged. Traditional Thai massage is also available.
Combining luxury living, Thai character, boutique services and verdant nature, The Float House River Kwai is the eco-lodge guests in Kanchanaburi should be staying in.
Fascinating, nostalgic and memorable sums up the tour to Kanchanaburi, 130 kilometres west of Bangkok. The province itself is an agricultural area with sugar cane, rice paddies and pineapple plantations all forming significant portions of the stunning Thai rural landscape. Whether a war buff or rail enthusiast, everyone has a different eye to see this bridge. The famous bridge and the beginning of the ‘Death Railway’, which lies 1 mile outside the town of Kanchanaburi, is a poignant reminder of the thousands of POW’s and forced labourers who lost their lives in the Second World War. The Japanese initially built the bridge in 1943 with the massive wartime agenda to link existing Thai and Burmese railway lines so that a direct route would exist from Bangkok, Thailand to Rangoon, Burma (now Myanmar).
