Royal River Kwai Resort & Spa, located on the River Kwai 10 minutes west of the famous bridge, is a lovely oasis in Kanchanaburi. We stayed one night for free as we had enough Agoda points to cover the room rate of around $50 when we made a trip to this area a few months ago. I have no hesitation in giving my best recommendations for this place; the clean and cozy rooms, the super friendly staff, the gorgeous pool in the beautiful tropical garden and the spa. And the room rates are unbeatable!
We booked a 32m² superior room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a balcony. Breakfast and Wi-Fi were included in the price.
We got a room on the first floor with a garden view.
The best thing about this resort is the lovely pool surrounded by coconut trees and the fact that you can order drinks from your sun loungers.
We arrived quite late in the afternoon after a day of exploring Kanchanaburi and hit the pool right away before closing.
Wifey with a delicious Mai Tai.
The garden is beautiful and well maintained with all kind of tropical plants and trees, including banana and coconuts.
There is a restaurant situated by the river, right behind the pool, which we went to eat later at night after a massage at the resorts spa offering herbal steams and aromatherapy massages (both of us almost fell asleep).
A romantic dinner by the river in tropical heat ended a perfect day. The breakfast was also good, but I forgot my camera in the room. Fun things to do at the resort include table tennis and canoeing, and there is a playground for the kids. Royal River Kwai Resort & Spa is perfect for both families and couples looking for a romantic getaway. Do yourself a favor and book today!
