                Almost perfect”

                raft rooms can't conceal the environmental noises that well. rafting (offered by the resort) has a major downside which is: on the way up against the water stream, you will be behind the dragging boat which will blow you with its exhaust. On the other hand, the way back down stream was so good. The resort was a bit far from the Main Street. A length of 1 km before arriving at the resort was made of soil, not asphalt.

                The room seemed old, dirty and lot of dust. (I think there's still in renovation time after COVID closing.) Please mind closing the door, there's FULL of insects. Surrounding area and other rooms upstair look better than River Room. Anyway, the food is okay, and local dinner is value your money. The staffs are very very nice and serviced-mind. Loved and tipped.

                I was check-in late after the activities done, however we can enjoyed the natural view by the raft as the room is located. The dinner on New Year pretty good but too sweet, the singers sang the song were great but some of the staffs are quite impolite, actually only 2 of them very nice and friendly. There are seem not value for the paid money and I would not recommend anyone to go.

                A very friendly staff is not making the balance with a clumsy resort design, far from the main road, a room in disrepair (the sink had no sink drain, just flowing on your feet and it could not be fixed) and a terrible breakfast.

                Low standard. One time is enough”

                The room is not worth the price. The raft room doesn't have twin beds but in pictures show 2 beds IF it's for 3 people, the resort should put in a triple room or whatever. Or describe it in the title, not just "Raft Room", this can lead to misunderstanding. This value should include water activity and be far from the main road and very rough. If comparing quality and price with other resorts, this is a very super low standard. 1 thing better than others is other resorts have a welcome drink but this resort has a welcome spaghetti.

                The picture of our room was way way more far from the actual room: we are in room 5&6 building type... 1. The room lightning was dark that it affects are mood of being happier when we stay in the hotel. 2. The curtains are not properly installed. 3. I have to ask the staff to clean the room again as it smells dusty and change the beddings again as there are some insects eggs or poo in there. 4. The sofa is so dusty and old. 5. There are molds in the leather covering of the bed. 6. The toilet doesn’t flash properly we have to fix it outselves. 7. Food is ok... The only good thing I saw is that they have a courteous staff... and good view outside the hotel.

                Beautiful location, nice architecture, overall great experience, only reachable by a 2-kilometer dirt road. Two thoughts though: 1. For a place at this price at least have fresh coffee. Instant coffee doesn't cut it anymore in this beautiful country with a myriad of excellent coffee shops. 2. The owners of this place seem to love dogs, of which we made aware of until deep at night with these sure pretty dogs howling deep into the night. The dogs had their fun, less so us who tried to sleep with open window and enjoy the fresh air. Also, when arriving at a place I usually don't like to be barked at and jumped at by dogs. Beautiful they are! But not at a nice hotel, barking dogs living there should not happen. If a resort praises itself as the ultimate relaxation experience, maybe the owners who are in Bangkok should leave their dogs in Bangkok as well. Or make it a dog hotel!

Great taste of dinner and breakfast (Dinner : local Thai food Breakfast : American breakfast) 3. Clean and new resort Defect 1. Worse road that make my car full of red dirt 2. Not vary breakfast (have only toast with margarine or fruit jam , egg,sausage and instant coffee) ; no milk ,cocoa drinks or cornflakes 3. Not much activities (only raft)
