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

Battambang is a small city and less travelers. This hotel have only 8 rooms. Tell hotel your arrived date and bus, they will send a TUKTUK to pick up you. All employees in the hotel are very nice, friendly. The small restaurant is also wonderful and delicious. Small swimming pool relax you and enjoy the sunshine in the day with... More

Me and a few friends stayed here for 1 night in March 2014. It is a gorgeous villa hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Battambang and was certainly my sanctuary during my short stay. If you arrive by bus to Battambang a load of tuk tuk drivers will be tapping on your windows trying to give you a... More
