Apple's Retreat

Our rating:

The illustrious Apple and Noi moved their headquarters across the river a few years ago and established Apple's Retreat in a quiet and peaceful riverside setting.

Unlike other options on the west side of the river, Apple's is just beyond the bridge so it's only a 10-minute walk to the main traveller strip. An important aspect of the retreat is Blue Rice Restaurant, which is known by locals, expats and travellers to serve some of the best Thai food in Kanchanaburi. Noi's well respected cooking classes also takes place here. Rooms are in a two-storey building on the other side of the road. They lack river views and most in-room extras, but they are clean and spacious and have comfy beds on raised wooden platforms. All come with air-con and modern hot water bathrooms but lack any other furniture. With that said, free WiFi is available in the restaurant area, which is so inviting that you'll probably spend most of your time there rather than in the rooms. Apple and Noi are veterans of the Kanchanaburi tourism scene and have gotten consistently good reviews for their service over the years. Recommended.
