        Great stay in a jungle retreat”

        Spacious room, huge bathroom, furniture carved out of teak wood

        It was a great jungle retreat true to the name "Mom Chailai Jungle Retreat" a nice mineral swimming smack right in the middle of the jungle, water is the right temperature. The furniture is authentically carved out of teak wood, the bed, the chairs, the table. Some tables are marble slab. It has blend nature into modern living with TV and wires. From here visitors can go for side excursions like the Hell Fire Pass to get a glimpse of the Death Railway, the bridge over River Kwai, Tiger Temple, elephant ride, river raft etc. If you are not into sight seeing just relax in the nature. From your bed yo get a good view o the jungle because the room is covered with full length glass panel, so you can relax in bed and enjoy the greenery and feel nature in the comfort of the bed. The staff is friendly and helpful. One of them speaks excellent English. He can help you in whatever you need.

        Forest hotel next to the river”

        The forest atmosphere far away from the noise of town and city

        We really enjoyed our stay here because we loved the forest setting and the staff service was great! But those who book here should know it really is far from the road in a real forest in an agricultural region of Kanchanaburi. The surrounding hills and mountains are great to visit, but you need transportation. We rented a pick-up driven by a friendly hotel staff who was also a tour guide. Very relaxing pool. Big rooms decorated with interesting furniture. Clean. Since no one else was there at the time, they upgraded our room for free. Good Thai food made by friendly staff.

        Nice, Peaceful, Natural Retreat”

        Quiet, peaceful, close to nature, natural mineral water pool

        We only stayed here for one night. This hotel is a bit of a journey from Katchanaburi train station, so it would be best to go to Erawan Falls first from the station and have the resort pick you up from there if you only have a night. You can leave your luggage at the Erawan Visitors Center for free while you go explore. The resort is gorgeous and the surrounding nature is quite impressive. We didn't arrive until later at night and I realized that I absentmindedly left my girlfriend's expensive camera on the bus. Without hesitating, Wynn, one of the delightful hotel staff hurriedly ushered me to his car and we tracked down the bus and got the camera back. Thank you so much Wynn!!!!!!! An overall great place to relax for a day or two and take in the beautiful forested scenery.

        A Nice Out of the Way Place”

        A nice place to get away from the crowds, see the forest, and relax

        Staying here is only useful if you have your own transportation as it is outside Kanchanburi (fairly close to Hellfire Pass) but it was a welcome relief from the crowds of the cities. Quiet, comfortable place buried in the forest/jungle.

        Peaceful jungle hide away”

        The hotel was very quiet and peaceful. The pool was very nice, natural with no chlorine.

        Let me first repeat what others have said. You really need to have your own car here. And even with a car, you are nearly an hour's drive from downtown Kanchanaburi. However you are not far, by car, from the Hellfire pass Museum and a lovely, but crowded, waterfall. Everything else is pretty far away. So if you like peace, quiet and solitude in a lovely jungle surrounding with a clear, clean, cool mineral water swimming pool, this place is perfect.

        Nature, Quiet, Pool

        This place has very natural surroundings, with a view of the river. It is close to some attractions but only in Sai Yok area and everything else is far away. The rooms were nice and almost felt like being in a little cabin in the woods. It is great for people who love nature and parks. The pool is small but kept clean. The place is off the main hill road slightly downhill about 1.5 km in, so make sure you have transport.

        A little gem”

        Staff performance, surrounding and atmosphere

        We spent 6 nights there surrounded by natural and we will definitely go back! The staff are nice but speaks limited English except the hotel manager who speaks fantastic English, as well very attentive.

        Very basic, old-fashioned and far from everything”

        Perfect for nature lovers, car park, fridge in room

        The hotel is a 5-10 minute drive down a dirt track from the main road. It's also not the Mom Chailai Hotel which appear on Google Maps next to a waterfall - in fact it's another 20 minutes down the highway from that map pin. The hotel is in the middle of the forest. The rooms are very oppressive, depressing and outdated. Think dark wood tables, deer antlers on walls and a huge old CRT TV. The in-room food we had (as it's too far to go out for dinner) was tasty. The breakfast the next day was inedible: 2 slices of watery, lukewarm chicken ham with a plastic sausage and a fried egg. We'd only booked here as the hotel our friends were in was full - and we though it was next to theirs... but it's not in the correct place on the Google Map (as mentioned above). We would not go back again.

        situated in the forest right above the river kwae”

        big rooms, nice bathroom, quiet forrest location

        the hotel is nicely situated in the forest on the cliff overlooking river kwae. the rooms are quite different, while the forest rooms are way nicer and bigger and cleaner than the hill ones! they could take a bit more care about their gardens, wich look a bit "wild"... dont expect anything from the breakfast!

        In the forest”

        Natural setting

        the resort is set in a lovely forest setting with individual houses. of course you do need your own car as there is no public transport and the resort is about 1.5 km from the main road 323. it is about 60 km from kan'buri so think about that. the room we had was good especially the shower which is open to the sky and with nice stones on the floor and walls. staff good. sadly food in the restaurant not very tasty and breakfast very basic.

        Noise and smoke ruin this "retreat"”

        The grounds are pretty in a natural setting with mature "jungle" trees

        First of all is the noise. A resort spa has been built across the river that uses a generator for all of it's electricity. This means that a generator is buzzing all day and it unfortunately negatively impacted our time there. Pretty much you need to have your own car or pay the hotel a very high fee to get any where. Additionally, there was loud music playing (from the resort next door ?) all night and I got about 3-4 hours of sleep. Since you are right next door to a national park you would think you would have nice, clean air, but because the farmers are constantly burning either trash or grassy areas, there is a continuous haze over the area that actually impacted my throat, eyes and gave me a headache. Now, here are actually the things that the hotel DOES have control over. Although this is a beautiful, jungle setting with nice trees and bamboo, some of the buildings are run-down. There are canopies with holes in them, the sitting area next to our room had half the roof missing, and there is a large building next to the little pool with a caved in rusty metal roof. It just seems that this place has been left to decay. The "kitchenette" in our room had a sink that didn't work. The door on our room bad to be forced to open, there was no remote for the A/C and once we finally got one it didn't work. The one staff person who actually spoke English checked us in but was other wise not around to answer questions or deal with any problems that arose. Finally, the included breakfast was really bad. Instant coffee with powdered cream, white bread with fake butter and jam, a "hot dog" (AKA sausage) small piece of ham, eggs and powdered orange drink. We looked at the menu which was very limited, and decided to go out for all of our other meals. Because there is not a lot around, the food options are limited. All in all, the feeling of this place is that is was built with care and love but has been left to deteriorate due to lack of clientele.
