A romantic and affordable getaway on the River Kwai

We’ve loved this gorgeous resort facing the serene Kwae Noi River in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, and now they’ve got a special package to sweeten the deal: two glasses of bubbly upon arrival, a daily Champagne breakfast, a candle-lit aromatherapy bath, a dozen roses for her and a dinner for two along the river.

Located just two hours outside of Bangkok, the X2 River Kwai Resorts consist of eight industrial-chic cabins that resemble shipping containers, an infinity pool overlooking the river and a laidback restaurant with an outdoor dining area. The resort is near rice paddy fields, sugar cane plantations and local temples, and you can rent a bicycle from the resort and go exploring.

Room rates start from US$191 ($258) a night and is valid until May 31, with a minimum of two nights stay. Head here to book.
