Hintok River Camp is spectacularly located on one of the most idyllic, picturesque spots right on the riverbank of the River Kwai amid the glorious Kanchanaburi countryside scenery.
The resort comprises 38 luxury tents that provide accommodation for guests. Each canvas tent is elegant and spacious, with en-suites and vast, private verandas to enjoy river views and the dramatic, rocky mountains beyond.
All tents are decorated in the safari style, light and airy yet luxurious in taste and textiles. Think carpeted floor, natural woods, and bamboo and rattan furniture, yet all custom-designed with a healthy dose of Thai flavour.
All canvas tents embrace nature, blending into the surroundings perfectly. Yet, the tents don’t compromise comfort or privacy for a relaxed, rejuvenating experience.
The camp features a semi-open restaurant terrace serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with beautiful views. The professional chef serves up a BBQ campfire dinner in the evening under the moonlight.
On-site, there are plenty of opportunities for relaxation. Choose from laying down to enjoy a replenishing massage delivered by expert hands or taking a dip in the natural spring pool. If guests are more inclined to active experiences, mountain bikes are available to hire with recommendations for the best trails to enjoy the stunning surrounding area.
Alternatively, since the river is one of the area’s key attractions, there are plenty of river-based attractions nearby, including kayaking and paddleboarding.
The Hellfire Pass area is known to history as one of the most well-known locations of tragedy during the construction of the Burma railway during WWII. Allied POWs built the railway that passes from Thailand into modern-day Myanmar.
On-site, a museum notes the story of those who worked and died while making the railway. The Hintok River Camp works as an ideally-located base for exploration of other WWII-related sites in the area.
