Sky Resort

Big pool, good value

More on Kanchanaburi

A newcomer as of 2016, Sky Resort has comfy rooms and a swimming pool so big that you’ll probably forget about the total lack of character.

Travelfish says:

Situated on the inland side of the lane, three two-storey room blocks surround the pool and each has a furnished balcony to go with glass doors allowing natural light to flow inside. While lacking any shred of decoration, interiors are spacious, clean and equipped with comfortable queen beds propped off glossy tile floors, good-size hot-water wet bathrooms, LCD TVs and fridges. All rooms are identical but families can pay 300 baht for extra single beds. Expect WiFi to be unstable, a recurring problem in Kanchanaburi.

Rooms lack river views but the resort runs a small restaurant on the riverside of the lane with a scenic vantage. Staff can be unresponsive and the smiley guy at the reception booth spoke limited English. The bulky modern property is also a major departure from the old-style feel of Rongheabaoy, which has long been defined by small guesthouses and modest houses.

Even with these drawbacks, Sky is worth considering for the central but quiet location, affordable creature comforts and one of the biggest pools in town. If you like the creature comforts but would prefer a floating room with no pool access, head across the lane to Tara Rafthouse.
