Thai Garden Inn

Great for families and couples

More on Kanchanaburi

One of the more charming places to stay in Kanchanaburi, Thai Garden Inn is a miniature resort with bungalows overlooking a well-kept garden and swimming pool in a soothing spot just off the river and it’s an especially good choice for families and couples looking to avoid the party noise.

Travelfish says:

Freestanding bungalows are made of coconut wood and concrete and built close together with chairs on private porches. Inside you get air-con, firm beds raised off tile floors, desks, fridges, WiFi, small safes, some Thai art and medium-size bathrooms with rain showerheads. They had installed shiny new toilets since our last visit.

Deluxe bungalows are worth an extra 100 baht for a TV with hundreds of channels, coffee/tea facilities and little round tables with cushioned chairs. Families can go for a plus-size bungalow fronting the roofed pool or a two-bedroom house with a full kitchen. We feel that standard bungalows are a bit pricey for what you get, yet we really like the place if you’re not on a tight budget.

Soft-spoken staffers serve simple complimentary breakfasts in a little cafe next to reception while also offering tour bookings and bicycle/motorbike rental. The resort is situated down a gravel lane off the inland side of the road, but the garden with benches, hammocks and pavilions spread among trees helps to make up for this. It’s a 15-minute walk from here across the river to Mae Nam Khwae Road.
