I stayed here for two nights, and overall it was a positive experience. The room was great. It was huge, had a small private courtyard, and included a large bathtub, which always makes me happy. The hot water was very hot, and the room was very clean. The hotel is located a little out of the main area of Battambang.... More

We chose this hotel following the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The place has been operating for only four months old with a feeling that the building works is still on-going to create the final atmosphere of a sanctuary. The pool (water in a concrete colour interior hull) was not inviting and lily ponds running along walkways dried out. The... More

We chose this hotel following the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The place is very new with some details still to iron out. The staff are great - friendly and quick to try and sort out any issues. The idea is great but still lacks some ambience - hopefully this will come with time.

Nat, the part owner welcomed us and gave us all the key information re: where we could go to eat, visit and all the complementary benefits that you get from staying at their hotel.

A new 7 villa establishment provided us with a relaxing experience. At $75 per night our expectations were high and we were not disappointed. The Villa is large with private outdoor seating. For N. Americans, the best breakfasts of our trip without a doubt. In fact, we always enjoyed the restaurant and had nearly all our meals there. Most accommodating... More

After several years together as a couple we agree that The Sanctuary stands out as one of the best places we have ever been lucky enough to stay at. If the Santuary were in Bali or Australia the price per night would easily be 5 times higher. The villas are modern and spacious, the huge bath tub is very inviting... More
