Ganesha was everything I was looking for on my trip. The setting middle of the rice fields were perfect. It is off from town, but you can make it easily to Kampot and near by attractions. For me Ganesha itself was attraction and I was more than happy to spend my days chilling in common area. Food in the restaurant... More

The food and staff are absolutely fantastic. By far the best food and service we had in Cambodia, an absolute delight! The mains potions are very generous and can easily feed two people, try the 'shrimps walking in the garden'.The resort is in a remote spot, which is exactly what we were after Siem Reap. We hired a motorbike in... More

Four of us stayed at Ganesha in May this year and have not stopped recommending it since! Ema and Stephanie, managers at the time, were very accommodating and especially fair when it came to negotiating a nights stay in the tower room before moving to a cheaper yurt as they were booked on our first night. Their food is quite... More

This guesthouse is absolutely superb for anyone seeking a relaxing getaway having been in Bangkok, Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. It's a beautiful location set alongside the river which provides the guesthouse with a very relaxed and spacious atmosphere. Admittedly it is a distance from the main town of Kampot (6km approx), however this is partially why this place is... More

We found the woman running this place to be unwelcoming and cold. The room was okay - they are very cool huts. Ultimately it was the service and atmosphere that we didn't like. It is also a relatively far tuktuk from here to town.

Dear Victoria, There is always 2 sides in a story. So, let me show mine. You booked a bungalow for 2 nights and you didn't show up, no email no phone call to cancel it. So, to let the room available, I cancelled your booking and sent you an email to inform you. Finally, you arrived the day after at... More

A friend and I stayed in a yurt next to the river. It had a mosquito net, power and table and chairs to sit outside by the river. We had a wonderful time at Ganesha Eco Riverside Resort. The food was great. It was a little ways out of town down a bumpy road, however they were grading it when... More

It's only my second time at Ganesha, but Stephanie, Emman, and the whole team made me (and every other guest) feel so welcome. Such a great feeling to walk back in to Ganesha and be greeted so warmly by a bunch of people that now seem like close friends. From advice in where to go and what to see, to... More

This was my second time at Ganesha and again it was the most amazing tranquil and relaxed experience. The owners and Ganesha staff team are truly warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble, creating a homely and relaxed atmosphere. I feel truly taken care of when I stay there and I highly recommend this to any traveler or... More

The owners make you feel instantly at home... Stephanie is the perfect guide as far as recommending local attractions.... I was recommended here by a friend and would recommend to others... Simple accommodation with nature at your doorstep.... Special mention to the chef... Incredible meals every time!!! And is a fantastic pool player :)

What a special place Emmanuelle, Stephanie and team have created. We absolutely loved our time here and could have quite happily stayed longer had time allowed - and that was after already extending our stay! Definitely one of our favourite places in our South East Asia adventures. The food and cocktails are amazing, and fantastic value (seriously, would recommend coming... More
