Boutique Hospitality Management Asia (BHMAsia) will open the X2 River Kwai in Kanchanaburi, Thailand in July 2014 with 8 cabins, with plans to add 18 more villas to the project in mid 2015.

 X2 River Kwai is located at one of the most beautiful stretches of the Kwai Noi River. Traveling to the resort, one will pass-by rice paddy fields, sugar cane plantations, local temples and villages which are the signature scenery of Kanchanaburi.

 The resort is located on 2 acres (6 Rai) of prime riverside location with every room offering uninterrupted panoramic river views over the idyllic countryside.

I am very excited about the addition of X2 River Kwai, said BHMAsias CEO and founder of X2 Mr. Anthony McDonald. If you love design hotels and are a fan of X2 Resorts, you will fall in love at first sight with this property. It is what we call Industrial Chic Design, (it is) beautiful, sexy and strong and gives you the feeling of freedom which you can find in all X2 properties. The owner worked with Thailands top architect and designer team, Agaligo Studio, to bring out the key features of Kanchanaburi and translated into the resorts design. Recently, the feedback has been very positive from the future guests and media, as we have already received quite a number of bookings and media inquiries for this property. Our team has been working hard to get everything ready for the resorts opening in July.

Kanchanaburi is the largest of the western provinces of Thailand. It is frequented by tourists who have been attracted by its long history and ancient civilizations, a location of the Bridge over the River Kwai and scene of the World War II historic. The province is also known for its natural attractions such as forests, mountains, caves and waterfalls. The town really gained fame after WWII when the Japanese soldiers used it as a base camp for the POWs to build the notorious Thai-Burma Railway and the well-known bridge over the River Kwai. The story was featured in the 1957 Hollywood produced movie The Bridge on the River Kwai which won 7 academy awards. Another film about this historical event is The Railway Man which was shot mainly in the actual locations in Kanchanaburi and will be screening in 2014.

X2 River Kwai consists of 8 rooms in five types; PoolXide Cabin, Deluxe PoolXide Cabin, PoolXide Cabin Suite, LuXe Cabin and LuXe Cabin Suite- all facing the Kwai Noi River.

Facilities include a river view restaurant with an outdoor deck, The Bridge Bar & Bistro, library, an infinity riverfront pool with sun lounges and sun beds, bicycles on loan, free wifi in all common areas, guarded car park, in-room massage and iPads on loan.

Introductory rates are 5,500 Baht for a one-night stay or 10,000 Baht for a two-night stay in LuXe Cabin including Champagne Breakfast for two. The promotion is valid until 31 July 2014 and stay between 1 July and 30 November 2014.
