    About Float House River Kwai

    Floating on the Kwai Noi River, the Float House River Kwai is a unique boutique hideaway in the Kanchanaburi province of Thailand. Only accessible by long-boat, the incredible location where you’ll be surrounded by lush jungle, and the fantastic excursion and sightseeing opportunities are the stars here. Explore the history and culture of the surrounding area with trips to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre, the iconic Bridge Over the River Kwai and a local tribal village and temple; then find yourself in awe of nature at Lawa Cave famous for its stalactites and the waterfalls of Saiyoke Yai National Park. On site at the lodge, you’ll find plenty to fill your days with bird watching, mountain biking and canoeing on the river – or simply jump from your private villa veranda and swim downstream (lifejackets available!)
