The Sanctuary Villa is fantastic! I stayed for four nights. They picked me up at the boat dock and accommodated my request for a motorbike rental with a perfect little Honda. The staff is just wonderful; they were attentive but also not overbearing. The restaurant was great (I admit that they helped enable my mid-afternoon fresh spring roll addiction)and the... More

We were happy to have found this place. It is about 1 kilometer from town ($1 tuk tuk ride) and is very well appointed and peaceful. The rooms are lovely (there is only about 8 villas from our reckoning) with great bathrooms. The breakfasts were good and included in the price. Great Khmer staff who couldn't have been more helpful.... More

This is a lovely, albeit long in the tooth hotel. The staff here are amazing and go out of their way to make sure your stay is amazing. I received a complimentary pick up from the bus station and return trip which was great as the villa is quite a way from the city centre. Unfortunately i received a coveted... More

A friend and I stayed at Sanctuary Villa when we stopped of in Battambang on a trip round Cambodia in December. This pleasant hotel is a bit out of town but very well presented and with a big pool and terrace. Our large twin room actually had two double beds, so we had plenty of space. It was very bright,...

We spent five nights here and it was always a sanctuary to come home. The staff are lovely and they try so hard to get everything just right. Pool's great. Breakfasts were great and we had dinner there a couple of times. Food was pretty good if perhaps a little more expensive than in town. It is some distance from... More

A wonderful hotel with rooms grouped around a nice pool in a beautiful little park. A great place to relax after a day exploring the temples and streets of Battambang. The room was comfortable, especially the bed, and breakfast tasty. I also had lunch and dinner at the restaurant a few times - the food was good but there was... More

If you like it private and secluded, you found your sanctuary. Villas are separated from each others, comfort is good without ott. Service is very discreet but highly efficient. I'd come back. Important note! Their food rivals easily with the best in town! Just calmer and laid back..

Indeed, you need a tuktuk to visit the city center but the service provided by Lon is exceptionally nice and efficient. Our room (family one with two kingsize beds) was nice, very good bathroom with a great and separated shower. The breakfast is excellent! We had to face a major issue during our stay and the staff reacted with professionalism,... More

Excellent hotel with a very helpful staff. Peaceful and quiet location with great private rooms, easy access to the pool and with a tasty restaurant in site. Not far to Battambang town centre with a tuk tuk ride

as we arrived to Battambang with the bus we met a guy from the hotel that took us there with the tuk-tuk, for free. we were a bit surprised of how this place is really outside the center of Battambang, in an almost countryside area with few houses around and very dark at night. but inside the hotel everything was...
