“So relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Ganesha was the perfect place for us to relax after a busy time of Temple visiting and long days of travelling. It is set amongst the rice fields just outside Kampot and we loved staying in one of the riverside yurts. We were made very welcome and really appreciated the advice on places to visit in the area including a wonderful trip on the river, visit to pepper plantation and the local cave temples. Tip for all: order the squid with Kampot pepper (absolutely delicious!)

A beautiful little place just at the fringes of Kampot, Ganesha was a wonderful experience for my traveling entourage of five. The warmth and charm of the people working there, along with the owners - Emmanuhell and Stephany - made our stay a delightful one. The food was the best Cambodian food we had throughout our stay in Cambodia, while the variety of activities in and around Ganesha made our trip a memorable one.

Located at the heart of nature, expect to get friendly with the bugs. However, it will all soon be forgotten after a drink or two over worldly conversations with new (Ganesha's family) and old friends; moreover, the beauty of mother nature is just a little too captivating to be bothered with trivial little insects.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Chris and friends (Malaysia).

It's a lovely place to stay for a bit of relaxation. We stayed in one of the Yurt's overlooking the river which was nice. The rooms are fairly small and basic. They provide mosquito nets. The pillows were the hardest pillows I have slept on in all of Asia and Europe (travelling for 6 months), but we were only there for 2 nights. Just keep in mind that it's an eco resort - so not hot showers or flushing toilets. We found the food to be a bit pricey compared to in town - to be expected though - and not overwhelmingly great (sorry!). The staff running were very friendly, and their English was great. Location wise, it's about a 15-20 minute tuk tuk ride ($4USD) each time you need to get to town unless you hire bikes or motos. The road can be a bit bumpy/muddy on the way in and out so be careful!

Yeah, not all bad, but too expensive, too hard to get too and the location is on a dirty side river, not the main Kampot river as we thought. The bathroom was the real dealbvreaker as its in desperate need of renovation. Ganeesha may do you OK if you want peace and quiet, but there are much better equipped places in town like Le Soleil Dor or Mea culpa.

We were really lucky to be the first visitors to Ganesha after their change in management. Emmanuel and Pahl were lovely and so knowledgeable about the resort and Kampot. The cook made us delicious, authentic Khmer food. We felt like we were home after a busy day in Phnom Penh.

The location is amazing, along the river just outside of Kampot amongst the rice paddies. I really enjoyed swimming in the river an sleeping in a yurt. Thanks so much for the relaxing time. I'll definitely be back and recommend Ganesha.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. If you want to wake up and jump in the river I recommend the 2 person yurts...

This was one of my favourite hotels of our trip. Its a beautiful relaxing place which I would recommend for an extended stay. Unfortunately we were only in Kampot for 3 action-packed days so the location was a little frustrating when trying to make 6am buses. The staff were full of great advice, and the hotel offers some great facilities like boat rides and canoes for hire.

Room Tip: The Riverside Yurts have a beautiful view and are a lovely place for couples to stay
