In the rural town of Kanchanaburi, Thailand, a resort of exclusive floating homes can be found. Known for its proximity to lush, mountainous landscapes, it is easy to see why this traditional Thai town is now home to a luxurious private resort.

The X2 River Kwai Resort drew inspiration from local floating houses in the region, but has modernized the traditional abode. The innovative unit called the 'X-Float' has a waterfront deck that sits on the edge of the river. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow for unobstructed views of the surrounding greenery and water, including a picturesque view from the bedroom. Each bathroom is meant to mimic a spa, giving guests a private getaway within the home. Unlike many other floating homes, the X-Float comes equipped with a rooftop lounge where you can soak up the sun, relax and unwind.
