“CHILL OUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I stayed here just 1 night the property itself is lovely and not forgetting the staffs so friendly and welcoming.last night had a great dinner but the service orientated and attentive restaurant supervisor even overpowered my delicious meal.The owner was very friendly and helpful.Wish you all the best and will see me again soon.

Lovely resort and lovely owners. This place has charm in spades. The quality of the rooms, grounds, service and the food is outstanding. The owners genuinely care about their guests and will go out of their way to see that you are happy. The trips and tours arranged are unique and the great value for money. This is the only place I would stay in Battambang.

Lovely new resort with wonderful owners. Being small with 4 extra large romantic lake rooms and 6 large garden rooms you are individually looked after by all excellent staff. The cambodian staff and owner all can speak lots of languages. Some were having lessons every week at the resort in french while we were there. Once you arrive all local tours are arranged with knowledgeable guide/drivers. D'ont miss the the taste tours of an afternoon. Found it a great place to relax and take in the real cambodian way of life. The pool and gardens are already well established even though it has only been open for 1 year. Love the rice paddy and vegetable garden they have to grow some of their own produce. The gardens have already attached lots of wildlife ;many birds squirrels frogs lizards geckoes and even a bat that had decided to make a light fitting his home. To the annoyance of the staff .

Room Tip: All rooms are very private

a bit out of town but worth the effort. the rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. the staff were always pleasant and chatty. i've never stayed in a resort before and i found it hard to have everything taken care of in one place. accomm, food, tours, laundry etc. but i honestly think they offered a great service at reasonable prices (probably more than 'town' rates but worth it not to have to deal with all the hassle). fantastic pool! Thanks BTB resort.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February, on our way to Sihanoukville, and loved it so much, we changed our plans so we could stay here again on our way back to Siem Reap.

What can I say about the resort that's not already been said?... not much! The resort is located about 10 minutes outside Battambang. This is great because it's very quiet. We were picked up from the bus by the resort tuk tuk driver, which made it really easy. When we arrived at the resort, our luggage was taken to our room, while we were offered a complimentary cocktail, while Jan (the owner) explained all about the resort and the area, and made recommendations for day trips.

It's a beautiful resort, very well laid out amongst lovely gardens, and with only 10 rooms. We stayed in a lakeside room, and this was very private and had it's own balcony/ terrace overlooking the lake. The room was gorgeous, very clean, spacious and furnished really well. We had a fridge, safe, tea/ coffee, complimentary water, and small mini-bar. The rooms don't have TVs and this is something we liked a lot! Who wants to go to Cambodia and watch TV?

The resort has a lovely bar, and a separate restaurant upstairs, but you can eat dinner in either, although breakfast & lunch is served downstairs. The bar serves lots of fresh juices, tea/coffee, beer, wine and cocktails. The mojitos are excellent!

We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort every day, so we got to sample many of the dishes on the menu, and they were all delicious. Our favourites were the mango chicken, chicken & cashew nuts, and the lamb (was on the specials). The resort grows it's own brown rice, and this was the best rice we had in Cambodia.

There's a beautiful salt water pool, but be careful because the tiles are very slippy. I know this because the first time I went into the pool, I slipped on the tiles, landed on my bum and had a huge bruise for days.

Service at Battambang is superb. Your hosts, Jan and Paris are very friendly and helpful. We did the Bamboo train/ Bat cave tour, the circus trip and booked the bus to Sihanoukville and Siem Reap, and this was all organised by the resort. They made everything very easy. Our tuk tuk driver was called Chin Chin and we would highly recommend him for any tour. He's very informative, and will go above and beyond to help you enjoy your trip. We have videos of both the Bamboo train and the Bat cave on our blog at www.allpackedup.com and would definitely recommend both of these.

One of the loveliest touches was when we returned to the resort for our second stay, and found a bottle of the wine that we always ordered, on our bed with a note saying "Thank you for choosing to return to Battambang".

Battambang resort has only been open for a year, and it's amazing what they have achieved in that time. It offers excellent value for money, but I think as more people find out about it, it will be fully booked for most of the year, so book it now!


Our top tip:
Once you get there, you will want to enjoy the resort so don't book too many activities!

Room Tip: Lakeside room

This place has received rave reviews. Without wanting to repeat; it is genuinely a delightfully serene and really thoughtfully created resort.

The resort and decor blends European luxury with traditional Cambodian decor.
Thoughtful (and unusual touches) include:
- really really beautiful gardens and small boating lake to explore. Great for budding photographers
- rooms, poolside, and public spaces thoughtfully and atmospherically lit
- spacious, well decorated and cosy room spaces
- super attentive staff (as you might expect from a family business)
- varied menu (best fish amok we tried) and great quality of ingredients

The only pedantic feedback notes we would add would be:
- that the wedding noise really can spoil the atmosphere but this isn't a fault of the hotel and they did all they could to deal with it.
- cocktail measures were a little small for the price.

All in all this represents real value for money and would be an excellent treat for couples and small groups. This would be top of the list of recommendations in Cambodia for us. You get the feeling you're experiencing the infancy of something great. Jan is one to watch for the future!

Room Tip: Choose a garden room!

We stayed here after a day biking and traveling. It was a great place to unwind and relax. Excellent service, bar and dinner menu. Breakfast choices are limited but food is good. Service at breakfast was a bit slow but we did want it early so that we could ride before it got too hot. The grounds are amazing, lovely pool. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
