Three of us travelling on business booked into this hotel,relying on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Our only regret was that we could only stay for one night. We had some trouble finding it but a call to Sayan had him sending a young man on a motor scooter to show us the way. We each had a... More

Secure individual spa villas located in a tropical tranquil garden with a large pool. The rooms were spacious with walk in robe and safety box. The place trains youths in hospitality and Sayan is doing a great job as manager. The staff were very friendly , polite and helpful. The resort is 1.5km from the center, but a free tuk... More

Lovely room with great private outdoor courtyard with bath & BBQ. Great pool & food and our host Sayan was wonderful. Overall an excellent choice of accommodation! He also helped us with organising drivers and transport to siem reap the next day. Nothing but praise For this oasis in the middle of Cambodia

The staff were so helpful and really pleasant. The food was amazing (definitely try the lok lak combo!) and room was lovely, spacious and comfortable. Would definitely stay again and would happily recommend it.

This is a beautiful hotel. It really does seem like a tropical sanctuary even though it is just a 20 minute walk (or 5 minutes by Tuk-tuk) to the town center. The design is thoughtful and beautiful. There are some small maintenance items that seem to be neglected (typical of many places in the developing world). The restaurant serves good,... More

This resort was fine for the price range. My partner and I stayed for two nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they offered some local knowledge on the sights and attractions. The villas were nothing fancy, just a simple one room place, but nicely decorated. One annoyance was the all glass fronted design of the villas. Nice if... More

The previous guests must be backpackers with lower expectations for comfort to give this hotel a good rating. No offense but this hotel does not warrant the price. This place is running on a shoe-string. Each employee holds several positions: pool guy, reception, server. This is one of those cases where the hotel's Internet photos tell a different story from...

We were originally due to stay just 2 nights here, but ended up staying 4 in this small retreat of a handful of villas a couple of km from the centre of Battambang ($1 Tuk Tuk ride or 10-15 minute walk). The gorgeous rooms, in individual villas, were very comfortable (our only complaint would be the water pressure was a... More
