In humble opinion of our family, Mek Kiri Resort deserves the best score because of multiple reasons, and I would like to tell about them in order.
The first reason is a spectacular scenery, surrounding this marvelous place (just look at the photos I’ve attached!) We lived in the riverfront room and we had a chance to enjoy it every morning, while we were feeding fish in the river and every evening, while we were swinging in hammock to the strains of Nature.
Talking about location, we found it extremely convenient for our travelling needs. It took us about one hour and half to get the downtown of Kanchanaburi and the same time to get, for example, the Sangkhla Buri, where we got to see one-of-a-kind Mon Bridge.
And the last but not the least reasons why we want to come back here, are: friendly staff, who are always ready to help if you need so; surprisingly good Wi-Fi signal (which turned out to be much better, than, let’s say, in some chain hotels); and simple, but really tasty food in local restaurant. By the way, Mek Kiri Resort gives an opportunity to have not only breakfast on the territory, but also lunch and dinner (at certain hours).
By the way, I can’t help but mention that every single guest can participate in an unique morning ceremony of making alms on the raft. We also decided not to miss a chance and became a part of it and, I can say, that it was unforgettable. If you’re interested in too, just contact the staff before your check-in.
Sure, I see, that I’ve already written a lot, so, in my summary, I would like to say the following: yes, I perfectly understand, that some of people can find interior in the rooms as quite old and shabby, BUT. Just reckon about one thing: this place is all about enjoying the outside beauty, not about sitting in the room, and in this field Mek Kiri Resort is head and shoulders above other similar resorts. Of course, in humble opinion of our family.
