Before becoming the Banrinkwae-Paerimnam resort

Looking back over 60 years to our yesteryears, after the end of World War II, the dense forest area of Sai Yok was a place that many might find it hard to imagine could serve any purpose. This was because there was no electricity, and reaching the area was challenging due to the absence of proper transportation. During that time, the primary modes of transportation were boats and rafts, as the Thai railway did not utilize this route after the war. Additionally, this area was often regarded as a 'blind spot,' making development and utilization difficult.

At the starting point…

Due to the hardships of life, which pressed in, forcing them to escape into the forest, Khun Kamthorn and Khun Urai Lorwongngam, former students from Chiang Mai University, decided to reside in the wilderness. As life partners, they joined forces to build dreams and utilize the knowledge gained from their university studies to construct a complete family. Engaging in the sugarcane farming profession, managing hundreds of acres, and serving as agricultural machinery distributors, they also took on roles as teachers in schools and universities, earning recognition in the province of Chiang Mai. With determination, honesty, and a commitment to developing agricultural tools and equipment for local use, everything seemed smooth and beautiful initially. However, economic conditions, falling sugarcane prices, and rising oil prices led to several years of financial losses in sugarcane farming. Social issues further complicated matters, making it challenging to face the problems and pressures from all sides. Additionally, ensuring the safety of every family member became a concern. In the midst of this, the dense forest area became a space for Khun Kamthorn and Khun Urai Lorwongngam to seek refuge, regroup, and prepare to face the challenges once again.

Being thinkers, developers, and individuals with genuine friendships, even in times of hardship, no matter how difficult, friends who had once studied together often came to visit and provide unwavering support. This was because of a single bamboo house they had initially rented for relaxation and to welcome friends. It became a gateway to creating a small retreat by the banks of the Kwae Noi River. With the determination of Khun Kamthorn and Khun Urai, this area gradually transformed from a dense forest into an open, beautiful, and shaded sanctuary. With two hands, two strengths, but one heart, they faced challenges and expanded the small area by the riverbank for the battles ahead.

Here, created with life, sweat, and tears.

From 1981 to 1983, the construction of Banrimkwae-Paerimnam Resort began, funded by borrowed money and debts. A small raft house originally used for friends and relatives was transformed into a beautiful bamboo raft lodge. However, challenges persisted, facing natural disasters such as forest fires during the dry season and floods that caused the rafts to be washed away. Numerous struggles included dealing with uncontrollable natural events, inability to repay borrowed debts, and the need for repairs to accommodate tourists and promote awareness. Despite the hardships, the skies cleared after the rain, bringing opportunities such as hosting Hollywood films like "Around the World in 80 Days" and “The Bridge on the River Kwai”. Electricity and improved roads followed. In 1986, the State Railway of Thailand utilized the historical railway line, leading to the resort being selected as a business partner for the State Railway of Thailand. We became the first resort in Kanchanaburi to host tourists staying overnight due to the railway's operations. In the following year, 1987, the resort was chosen to expand its tourist programs in collaboration with the State Railway of Thailand, making it a pioneer in promoting various tour programs in Kanchanaburi. Its reputation has grown, becoming a model for various tourism activities up to the present day.
