Above the river in western Thailand!
Less than 3 hours’ drive from Bangkok through the spectacular Thai countryside, Baanpufa is a hidden gem tucked away along the banks of the River Kwai, perfectly situated at the epicenter of three national parks (Erawan, Srinakarin and Sai Yok) surrounded by lush mountains, caves and waterfalls. When you’re not relaxing on our floating river deck or enjoying fresh, homemade Thai cuisine at our hilltop cafe, our staff is happy to help coordinate bamboo rafting trips, scenic bike tours or hikes, or visits to nearby WWII museums and historic sites.
Rooms surrounded by nature
We offer a wide range of comfortable accommodations to suit every kind of traveler: floating rooms on the River Kwai, romantic hilltop bungalows, river view suites with adjoining rooms for families and large groups.
