Amazing place. Beautiful!

Pros: It has character. A lot of years of work went into building this hotel .
Cons: I like it the way it is.
Location: If you want to be near Kanchana Buri and the famous bridge, the location is distant. If you like Thai culture you will find it here.
We found it a wonderful experience. Located on the river in a forested setting. Friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. Quiet, serene and located away from the crowd. We stayed longer than we planned.

Badly neglected, not ready for guests

Pros: There was nothing to like! We lay in bed listening to late-night rock-and-roll drum practice in the staff quarters and moaned: "This is terrible ..."
Cons: Everything. Years of deferred maintenance has finally come due.
Location: The location is miles down a rutted dirt road with no other facilities or points of interest, except for natural beauty.
Beware: the photos on the website do not reflect the current state of Buritara. Only at check-in did we learn that it has NO food service, except for breakfast ... and we were miles deep in the jungle. Our only dinner option was to pay a staff member 200 baht to drive us into town for dinner. The pool looked ill-maintained, walkways are crumbling, and the limited staff can barely beat back the jungle, much less maintain the grounds to resort standard. The bed was musty and worn out. Buritara might have been charming at some point in the past, but today it has no business accepting guests' nonrefundable payment, or drawing them in with deceptively out-of-date photos.

Never again!

This is NOT a resort. Staff does not speak English. I had to talk to a translator on the phone to communicate with the staff. Wifi does not work unless you're at the lobby which is pretty far from the rooms. There nothing at this place. They say pool, restaurant, etc but you won't find it. This resort ruined my Kanchanaburi portion of the Thailand. This place is so far from the cool stuff in Kanchanaburi that you'll have to call a taxi, which is the resort's personal taxi service. But there is only ONE way to get to and from this resort (their taxi service), they will overcharge you. It's not based on meter, it based on whatever they say. I would NEVER NEVER EVER come to this place again. When me and my friends did come to resort, there were no other guests in the area. Maybe 8 staff members living in the resort.

OK not great

Communication with staff was sometimes confusion, but tried to make our stay comfortable. The grounds are interesting, but not well maintained. It is also quite a ways outside of town. Overall, we had a good stay.
