Why we recommend The Float House

“The Floathouse is located right on the River Kwai which makes for an incredible setting; there’s no need for a swimming pool - guests can just jump from their villa into the river. On top of the amazing location, the hotel also offers fun and tastefully decorated villas in Thai-folk style with lots of natural materials. The private decks come with deckchairs and a bench swing. There’s also plenty to do  in the surrounding area which makes this property a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.”
