Dheva Mantra Resort Kanchanaburi Rooms & Suites

Dheva Mantra Resort’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in the eco-friendly amenities within each room, showcasing the use of biodegradable materials.

The resort offers a variety of suites and rooms, each boasting its distinct characteristics.

Watch my detailed review:

1. Dheva Mantra Resort Suites

Presidential Suite (232 m²):

I was fortunate to experience the priceless gem of the resort’s Presidential Suite.

It offered opulent extravagance, boasting 232 square meters of colonial charm.

This suite offers an impressive dining area for 8, a top-notch entertainment system, and a sophisticated ambiance that exceeds expectations.

I admired a writing room adorned with elegant ivory paneling, intricately carved wall displays, and meticulous artwork where I could get ample work done.

The master bedroom features rich hues of russet and burgundy, showcasing a spacious teak four-poster bed.

The best part was unwinding in the oversized Jacuzzi in the bathroom, secluded for a private view of luxuriant tropical surroundings, nestled near the heart of the River Kwai.

In total, Dheva Mantra Resort has four different suite types:

Grand Suite (118 m²): Adorned with elegant teak floors, varied silk fabrics, and exquisite golden teak furnishings, the décor celebrates the splendor of the River Kwai. Enhanced by a lofty ceiling and antique fan, the suite’s timeless allure is amplified, harmonizing perfectly with the expansive balcony that offers breathtaking views of the legendary river.

Adorned with exquisite antiques from the region, this elegant suite provides a unique sensory journey and luxurious amenities. Its intricately carved teak balcony overlooks the scenic River Kwai, offering ample room for a memorable dining experience amidst breathtaking views.

Junior Suite (90 m²): The Junior Suites occupy the resort’s secluded and farthest section, ensuring utmost privacy. Revel in panoramic vistas of the River Kwai from a generous private balcony, all amidst the serene beauty of the resort’s lush tropical gardens.

2. Superior Rooms/ Deluxe Rooms/Family Deluxe Rooms:

Each room, generously sized at 52 sq.m., but the family deluxe being a bit more spacious at 58 sq.m., is a harmonious blend of classical style and traditional Thai elegance, offering a tasteful and inviting ambiance.

Later, you can return for lunch or dinner to savor a diverse spread of global culinary favorites but bear in mind that a reservation is required.

Whether seated on the terrace overlooking the lush tropical gardens, pool, and river or inside the charming colonial-style ambiance, guests can unwind and savor these delicacies in a serene atmosphere.

It’s an inviting spot to take a break, enjoy the view, and indulge in a delightful experience at The Terrace.

I had an amazing afternoon tea experience here, indulging in various sweets, such as macaroons, chocolate mousse, and cakes.

I highly recommend trying it yourself, especially sitting outside on the terrace. 

Rice Barge

Nestled along the tranquil banks of the River Kwai, the Rice Barge restaurant at Dheva Mantra Resort offers an unparalleled dining experience.

This culinary gem celebrates authentic Thai cuisine and embraces the romantic ambiance created by its riverside setting.

Influenced by the river’s heritage, the menu highlights the freshest seasonal fish sourced from local waters.

As the resort’s flagship dining spot, Rice Barge tantalizes taste buds with a diverse array of mouthwatering and genuine Thai dishes inspired by the flavors of all four provinces.

Guests can immerse themselves in an enchanting atmosphere while relishing the finest Thai cuisine amidst the picturesque riverside backdrop!

I tried a variety of delicious traditional Thai dishes, including Thai coconut soup (Tom Kha Gai), pineapple fried rice, pork cakes (Tod Mun Moo), and more!

Between the views and the food, this place is a must-try.

Things to do near Dheva Mantra Resort Kanchanaburi

There’s so much to explore around Dheva Mantra Resort!

I took adventures to many historical and enriching places during my long weekend in Kanchanaburi.

I took a nice train ride from Kanchanaburi train station, on the famous ‘Death Railway,’ to Thamkra Sae.

I explored the historical Krasae Cave, now a place for locals to worship the large golden Buddha inside, and I also walked along the train tracks to admire the views!

Erawan Falls was another destination I was so happy to have visited.

It is a seven-tiered waterfall that you can easily hike to each level to bask in the waters or just simply appreciate the beauty of the crystal clear blue water!
