                Amazing personalized service”

                Very clean, large, minimalist-style rooms (but have everything you need). Caretaker extremely helpful and nice; went out of her way to make us comfortable and help us with all our questions and needs. Very caring. Excellent food with a view - we had breakfasts in restaurant overlooking the river. Although close, resort is not walking distance to shops/restaurants so you need to hire a taxi or car, which was easy. Will definitely stay there again.

                Fabulous stay with a warm and friendly host”

                We stayed four nights over the Songkran holidays. Within moments of arriving we were greeted by the host of the resort. She is very warm and friendly and went out of her way to help us with any of our needs and requests. The resort itself is very quaint and peaceful with a swimming pool as a bonus to jump in after a hot day. We found the room to be very spacious and clean. There is a decent choice for breakfast and you can order omelette or thai soup. Really we could not fault our stay! I would only add that ideally you do need your own transport to get around. Kanchanaburi is a great place to visit for a short break from Bangkok and we fully recommend Kanvela Resort. Thank you so much for our stay!

                Close to nature, cozy & with a touch of personalized service”

                Our family (2 young children) stayed here for 3 nights. We used Kanvela Resort as sort of a "basecamp" to go sightseeing around Kanchanaburi and to visit some of its landmarks by car. The location is just right for us, outside the city center but still within developed area. Room is simple but clean, comfortable and it satisfies our need, except for some mosquitoes (but this is acceptable considering we're so close to the river, we have experienced much worse situation in another premise in a different city). The little swimming pool is nice and useful for our older son to spend some time when we came back early to the hotel. Breakfast are delicious, simple menu but we like them very much (especially the kids). The small garden is neat, clean and well maintained, very nice place to take some photographs, "instagrammable"! The resort owner is very nice and helpful and the staffs are friendly. This resort is suitable for families who want to explore around by cars, a quiet place to rest in the evening, enjoy chirping birds in the morning while having breakfast.

Very calm, simple but beautiful setup, nice rooms, a wonderful host who makes you a great breakfast every morning, nice pool to relax. Will come back for sure. Great value for your money.

                They went the extra mile!”

                We've been several times to Kanchanaburi and this was the first time we stayed out of town. So you definitely need your own transportation to get here. Everything we could have wanted we did found here: a spacious and clean room, a swimming pool surrounded by a lush garden and a breakfast/dining area overlooking the river. One more word about the breakfast which is buffet style. Since we're vegan we have a limited choice at those buffets, but oh man, they certainly went the extra mile for us to serve us a satisfying breakfast!

                Serene resort at Kanchanaburi ”

                The resort is situated in a serene corner of Kanchanaburi, have only six rooms in total. The day we arrived we are the only one who occupied the entire resort, it absolutely a bonus for us. Breakfast was humble, you may choose from either rice boil soup with pork or American breakfast, fruits,free flow of coffee ,tea ,Ovatine and some Thai dessert but I can felt that they are doing their best to accommodate us (due to the small size of guests staying). As we've travelled many cities in Thailand most of the so call 3star resort do not provide face towels but this one does ( Appreciate!) The lady caretaker ( who identify as owner's sister) was very kind, attentive and helpful,she recommended us to a near by restaurant name Keree Mantra Restaurant was a awesome one, good food nice layout and very reasonable price, strongly recommended to try at least once if you are at kanchanaburi, thumb up!! Overall the stay was pleasant!

                Three travellers arrived in Kanchanaburi for the ANZAC commemoration at Hells Pass with no idea of what to expect from this part of Thailand. The Kanvela was our first accommodation and what an experience! Taew was our hostess and she was amazingly considerate to our needs - what a wonderful advertisement for this place! I cannot recommend this resort more highly. its location on the River Kwai is perfect and the resort is beautiful! Thanks again Kanvela for a wonderful experience!

                A tranquil spot to stop”

                Clean, tranquil, friendly staff

                I found this hotel online for AU$67 for 3 guests. It is located 12min drive north-west of Kanchanaburi. Being a little way out of the city and being such a good price, and despite the photos looking good, I have to say I was sceptical that they were photoshopped. I had prepared myself for something that was average, which was ok as it was only for one night. As we made our way off the main highway to find this hotel I felt my scepticism increase, then we pulled into this little oasis. We were very warmly welcomed as we got out of the car. As we were shown to our room I was very pleasantly surprised. Here in the midst of nothing much was a new establishment. The rooms are simple but new. They have polished concrete floors and the usual basics. They have a nice pool area. It is a short stroll down to the restaurant which is right on the banks of the Kwai River which is very peaceful. They offer breakfast and dinner, we weren’t there for lunch so I can’t comment. We only had breakfast at Kenvela Resort which was a limited traditional Thai menu and eggs, they also had some toast and spreads available. The dinner menu was also a traditional Thai selection of dishes. We didn’t stay here for dinner as we drove into town to the Floating Raft restaurant next to the Death Railway Bridge. The main 2 single beds were firm but fine. The only disappointment was the extra third ‘mattress’, it was a hard 3cm thick foam mattress. We spoke to the person who greeted us, and when we returned from dinner she had added another 2 mattress of the same. I so appreciated the effort but it was still very hard. My suggestion to guests would be if there are more than 2 people and you would like a real mattress, get a second room. Other than the third mattress, I would have no problem recommending this accommodation and would definitely stay here again.

                We are a group of three who stayed just one night at Kanvela Resort. The reason we got this booking is due to the reviews and I get their point. The place was nice, decent. It has a pool and a restaurant with a great view of the river. The people were very nice too. The owner was very warm and welcoming to the guests. She accomodated our requests and was very kind and helpful to us. She heloed us out with our tours. Wpuld definitely recommend this place to people who want to chill out and relax in a homey place.
