Our boutique villa resort is ideal if you look for a family holiday, staff outing or executive meeting in the pristine environment near The River Kwai. We offer stylish rooms with full facilities. The start price is for 15 persons, incl. BREAKFAST. With privacy and luxurious comfort, it can accommodate 15-20 persons (2-3 persons/room). Nature walk in the adjoining horse camp woodland can be a great fun especially for children. Basic meditation session is FREE, but subject to availability.

The space

THE HISTORY: Part of the legendary horse camp: a one of its kind.
Historically, our property was part of the legendary River Kwai Horse Camp, established by the late German polo trainer, who moved from Bangkok not long after the end of WWII to give birth to the horse riding camp, a first of its kind in Kanchanaburi, if not Thailand, almost 70 years ago. Today our residence is physically still part of this uniquely historical place that occupies approximately a woodland of 28 acres - a largest green space nearest to town.

THE PROPERTY: LUXURY ESCAPE in the beautiful surrounding
Situated in a woodland of approximately 4,800 sq. m., our residence is bordered by the River Kwai horse riding camp on one side and pineapple plantation on the other side. This area is isolated from a busy tourist street near The River Kwai Bridge, though we are only 6 km. from town., and 2.5 km. on a back road to the Bridge.

Secluded in a rural Thai village only 400 m. from a touristic Saiyok 323 highway, our place always surprises guests with its soothing serenity and astonishingly peaceful atmosphere.

THE RESIDENCE: Timeless Elegance. Oriental Charms. Homey Feeling.
The two-storey building is surrounded by a tropical garden and nature, occupying over half of the whole property. This house-cum-luxury residence was constructed as a home office eight years ago, and has undergone a big renovation to accommodate guests with special interest in a non-conventional place to stay.

THE DESIGN: Colonial architecture. Contemporary. Oriental Heritage.
The main building design is a perfect blend of the influences of Colonial architecture as seen in Asia and a simple but stylish contemporary design. The interior design is directed by our personal passion towards a timeless charm of classic styleก furniture and the cosy touch of the Oriental and Thainess. As similarly important, we integrate the natural elements, i.e light, views of nature and cheerful energy, into the whole design in order to make our residence a truly luxury escape with a touch of nature around.

THE ROOM: Cosy. Stylish. Functional Luxury. Modern Comfort.
All 8 bedrooms have their own bathrooms and feature the same amenities with a touch of luxury and warmth that lend our residence a 'home away from home' holiday haven. All rooms are air-conditioned.

BEDROOM DETAILS:

1: LARGE ROOM (5 ):
•King-sized bed, high quality teak in modern-classic style

LARGE BALCONY: A perfect hang-out with gorgeous garden view
An ideal open-air balcony perches on top floor and overlooks a lush garden and a swimming pool. Approximately occupying 32 sq. m./344 sq. ft. in size, the balcony can be perfect for any relaxation activities or such body & mind retreat exercise as yoga, pilates or Chinese Ti Chi. Small group gathering or meetings are possible on this spacious open-air balcony with the prevailing relaxing and positive energy around.

ART GALLERY-CUM-MEETING ROOM:
Over its fairly small space, approximately 20 sq. m., but with a great natural surrounding at the opposite end of the garden, our art gallery can be turned into a meeting room or a working room of small groups if needed. It is already equipped with a long adjustable teak desk and a dozen of chairs in the centre of the room that displays a vivid art work of local artists.

SALA NAGA: Pavilion under a shade of the enchanting rain tree.
With its blessing and peaceful spells, SALA NAGA has been an attractive spot for our guests who spent much of their time either chatting, reading or taking an afternoon nap. It can be another nice place for small group talks, informal meetings or other gathering. Great sight of water lilies and our iconic Naga symbol - a true signature of this enchanting spot.

GARDEN and SWIMMING POOL AREA:
The ground in front of the residential building is nice for relaxation exercise or setting up lunch, cocktail or dinner. This spacious area includes our Gecko Terrace and Pool Bar.

The whole property can be rent for a private event i.e. dinner, lunch or launching products. Our well-maintained garden, outdoor swimming pool and outdoor restrooms are always kept in good condition.

The Journey House is a small hotel in private house style. Great for small groups of up to 15 peple. Lovely house and garden. Great staff as well.

This is a charming boutique style hotel with lots of space and privacy. Khun Jittin was super helpful before our arrival and the staff at the house were also happy to help with anything we asked. We traveled with a large group and enjoyed being outside and in the salt water pool. We ate dinner in town at several restaurants recommended by the staff here. Overall, a wonderful experience in Kanchanaburi.

Everything about the Journey house was perfect. The staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and immaculate and the property was extremely private, tranquil and well-kept. The distance from town is only 10 minutes (300 baht each way by Songthaew). Just make sure you coordinate this in advance. Everything was great, we will return next year for sure. Thanks Jittin and company.

Thank you very much Donna! To me, your stay is also a good one to remember because it is linked to my first participation in the Dawn Service here! It was special and I am glad that I could finally make it this year. Hope to see you again some time.

Really Nice house, We rent it with a full group If friends ( adults and kids) and it was very good. It was one of the first time for Jittin to privatize the house, with a cook... So few adjustments. Everything is possible with Jittin (thanks) just need to be clear on your expectation and the fare. Initially it is an hotel, so they are not used to big group enjoying the villa and taking diners at home. Recommanded !

It's awesome place for enjoying with friends and family. Nice location. K. Jittin was very friendly and helping.

Response from ๋Jittin:
Hello Rachit, Thanks very much for taking your time to write me a comment. Only one thing that I need to clarify is that our swimming pool is a salt water system! This system is healthier than the pure chemical one. It is our intention to put the salted swimming pool, hopefully you find this information useful and it can correct your understanding, if there is any misleading concerning the swimming pool. Thanks a lot, Jittin

Love travelling and making journeys because these can broaden my perspectives on the world.

Very early morning walk alone on the rim of Grand Canyon when nobody was there was one of the incredible experiences that I have had and really love to do it again! Ultimately peaceful and breathtaking.
