The Float House River Kwai, Kanchanaburi

Deluxe - ££££


With a rich, dramatic history, Kanchanaburi is located in the west of Thailand and is home to the famous Bridge over the River Kwai. Along the river, you’ll find the boutique-style resort of The Float House, which offers guests luxury villas, floating on the river itself.

Hidden behind thick jungle, the only way to reach the resort is by boat, making it not only exclusive but incredibly private and tranquil. Working with local communities, The Float House adopts a sustainable approach. With culture and tradition at its heart, proceeds go towards helping improve the living conditions of locals in the surrounding villages.

Each stunningly-decorated private villa is the perfect combination of an authentic Thai aesthetic and contemporary luxury. Enter to find wooden floors, draping beds and beautifully curated décor at every turn.

The town of Kanchanaburi is located approximately 40 minutes from the resort. But you can take a break from relaxing at your villa to join in with nearby trekking trails, visits to breathtaking waterfalls, and even a trip to the Treetop Adventure Park.


Dine at what may be your first floating restaurant by heading to the on-site Pontoon Restaurant and Bar. In a friendly atmosphere, enjoy both buffet and à la carte options from international and Thai cuisine. Make your way to the bar for post-dinner drinks and enjoy the lively vibes of floating river life.

While you relax, watch the rare performance of Mon Dance, which can only be seen in this area of Thailand, from the resort’s very own dancers.

If you feel like an activity during the day, the The Float House River Kwai can help you organise anything from mountain biking, trekking, and hiking to bamboo rafting and canoeing along the river itself.
