Relaxing”

After the madness of Bangkok I needed some rest so I booked the Sayok River House. Bad things first: I booked and paid for a double room and got a single room. The last night there was a storm and the bamboo hut was leaking in several places. WiFi signal was not great, there are several routers but they are not set up correctly. But I can't really complain because I got my money's worth. The place is in a beautiful jungle setting with a view on the river where elephants of the nearby elephant camp are bathing every afternoon. There's a swimming pool that I had to myself most of the time. The included breakfast is very good and served in the restaurant with river view. Staff are friendly, and they gave me a free ride to the railway station for my departure. Overall a pleasant stay and I would come back.

I liked it, my partner didn't.”

I liked the place. It is all outdoorsy and nature-y. Very calming. We stayed in the bamboo room which is super cute. There is only a bed, but that is enough for me. I enjoyed sitting in the sitting area outside the room. Very relaxing. My girlfriend, on the other hand, disliked the mosquitoes and the lack of air-conditioning. Note that this place is pretty out of the way. We rented a car so it wasn't an issue for us. If you drive here, the place is near the wampo viaduct. We got lucky and managed to see the train go by.

Jungle experience with a good restaurant”

I liked most the style of the bamboo bungalow, together with the noises of the night it was a nice experience, just like staying in the jungle :-) The ladies at the reception were completely helpful, even helping out with my next day pickup. Moto renting is possible at an average price, and is advisable to get to almost any other places around. Perfect price/value.

Calm and charm”

Excellent location for those who can reach the area with a car. Bungalow of charm overlooking the curve of the river, small swimming pool available and elephants bathing opposite side when quitting the resort next morning. Appreciate particularly the verandah attache to the bedroom where we can order food or breakfast if we prefer to eat privately. Breakfast simple but acceptable for the price. The only thing we regret is that the payment could not be done with credit card on arrival as their machine was out of duty. Then we had to take car to reach next willage and withdraw the necessary cash, and we should have been advised in advance as we did phone to confirm our arrival about one hour before. Also, the staff should be trained in better english! Nevertheless we would consider returning.

GOOD RESORT BESIDE THE RIVER KWAI ”

views,location, food

We found the saiyok river house a great place to stay. The views of the river and the surrounding mountains are fantastic. Especially memorable was the sight of elephants bathing in the river right opposite the resort. Our standard room was clean and comfortable. The outside balcony is a great place to sit and unwind after a day elephant trekking, caving or traveling along the river. People say it is remote but it is quiet and peaceful. The restaurant food was good and we would defineatly return to the saiyok river house .

The location (right on the river), the room, help with transport

We were picked up from the train station nearby(no charge). Hire of a good motor scooter was easily organised for a very good price, and one of the managers went out of his way to help us with using the bike and the best place to get petrol (he showed us the way, personally). The young woman had good English skills and gave us all the information we needed. Our room was very private ( the one at the end of the row, furthest away from the restaurant, All the 'superior' rooms have a veranda directly overlooking the river. The room was well set out; plenty of shelves & storage space, huge bathroom with a bath and heaps of charm. Sai Yok/Wang Pho is a charming, friendly little village within reach of all the local attractions.
