Lavish riverside resort
9/99 Moo 3, Thamakham Rd, Kanchanaburi T: (034) 527 666 F: (034) 527 660
This sprawling resort located a few kilometres out of town on the west side of the river doesn't cut any corners when it comes to luxury.
Surrounded by modern buildings with a tasteful colonial style, the resort's centrepiece is a seriously massive saltwater swimming pool with spacious patios and a kids' pool. The resort also offers a fitness studio (personal trainer is optional), full service spa, fine dining restaurant and various cafes and bars. Rooms come in several styles and vary in price depending mainly on size, with the smallest coming in at 52 square metres. If you're a serious high-roller, the priciest presidential suite comes in its own private wing. All rooms have hardwood floors, all the comforts you'd expect at a five-star resort and elegant balconies that beg to be lounged on with an iced bottle of champagne. This is a favourite wedding venue for hi-so Thais so don't be surprised if there's a reception happening on weekends. Significant discounts can often be found on online booking sites like Agoda.com.
