Customer Reviews

"The tent is huge and air-coned lying in a large field and surrounded by gorgeous mountain range and river. Love the BBQ campfire at night and spring pool down next to the river. A bit warm during the day but air-con helps and pretty cold during the night. We even turned off the air-con at night and opened windows for fresh air. The camp is close to Hellfire Pass. We spent couple of hours there trekking and taking photos. Enjoyed it so much. Will certainly recommend to friends." Yok Dekdee, Bangkok


"This was a lovely location above the River Kwai, with a swimming pool as part of the river...the rooms are actually tents, very comfortable and air conditioned, only minor problem is that the bathroom is not screened in like the actual bedroom... breakfast was very good, overlooking the river and the bar was very nice also overlooking the river...first night BBQ dinner was excellent."  Dai Wei Shi, New York
