Were unfortunately only able to stay one night here, which made the distance out of town the only downside to our time here. After a long bus ride from Siem Reap, our tuk-tuk driver took us to the bamboo train directly before checking in. After checking in, we dropped our bags and headed back into town for a couple of hours, so we really didn't get to properly experience the property until dinner time. We ate a lovely meal on the second floor of the restaurant overlooking the beautiful pool area. The food, service, and atmosphere there were top notch. The rooms are very contemporary and chic, not the traditional Khmer-style that we had been getting use to, but we all appreciated the decor. Booked our bus ticket onward for a little later the next morning than hoped for (nearly noon), but that actually gave us time for a leisurely breakfast and a couple of hours in the beautiful pool. The best part (for me) were the grounds, especially the colorful flowers AND the dozens of different species of butterflies flitting around

Room Tip: We had a Garden Room, but I walked over to the Lake rooms. Didn't see inside them, but was just...

Stunning! Wished we could have stayed longer. Fantastic hosts and staff with great food. Our guide (Mr Tin) was fantastic and gave us a real insight to Cambodia. His personal experience made it very real for us. A great setting and overall a great experience for our family of four. Top marks to Jan and Phary for the complete package and for the genuine personal attention. The snack tour is a "must do".

This great resort is owned by an expat Dutchman and his Cambodian wife.Though the place is aimed at couples we had a great stay as a family of five with two other families with children. It is a little bit out of town and required a tuk tuk to get around but the location was great as it was quiet and relaxing after big days at the temples and caves. The food was fantastic with vegetables from their own garden used and it was not too expensive. The rooms where magnificent especially the lake rooms. The owners even lent out a Cambodian fishing rod which my daughter caught her first fish from the lake. The rooms where spotless and the staff could not do enough for us and the children. A great place to stay and would recommend it.

I spent 3 wonderful, relaxed days at Battambang Resort with my parents. Our rooms were similarly decorated with a classy but understated mix of modern and traditional style. Frangipani blossoms and ceramic shampoo and soap dispensers were small touches that added to the overall natural feel to place. They were bright, airy, and clean with a large terrace surrounded by plants and flowers - just hop, skip and a jump away from the pool and bar.
The swimming pool was well sized, beautifully clean and seemingly perfectly designed to fit into the botanical surroundings. There was plenty of space to sit either drenched in sunshine or in the shade created by the lush and plentiful greenery that surrounds the resort. The food and drink menu was not fancy, but perfectly varied, really tasty and authentically prepared.
The owners are very friendly, helpful and welcoming and more than happy to help. Genuinely lovely people. The team of staff were also wonderful – always smiling, engaging and professional.
There are many incredible sights and experiences to be found in and around Battambang town. The circus is great. Just ask Jan or any of his team and they’ll set you on your way. The only slight drawback for some might be the distance to the town but it’s only a 10 minute tuk tuk ride away. Plus many of the local sights are away from the town anyway.
The resort is perfect for anyone wanting some peace and tranquillity, luxury combined with the best bits of the simple life.

Our garden room was simply furnished with a large comfortable bed, a large bathroom with a good shower and a lovely outlook. The gardens were lovely to look at with lots of flowers and butterflies. being only metres from the pool and the restaurant was a bonus. This is not a large resort so it was very quiet and peaceful in its country setting. The resort is out of town and it costs $3.00 for a Tuk Tuk ride into town, although the resort has a free service during daylight hours.

The staff were very helpful in organising tuk tuk drivers to show us the sights of the town and to do a town tour. (After doing a quick trip around the town we were so glad we did decide to stay at the resort. The town is very quiet with very little for tourists to do!)

The highlights of staying at the resort were the lovely staff who were a joy to be around. With a natural friendliness, a willing attitude and happy outlook. We ate several times at the resort and thought the food was delicious.

Note the lovely pool at the resort-however, by mid afternoon it is very warm and not that refreshing. Battambang Resort = Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The Garden Room was lovely but you have more privacy in a Lake Room.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights and wish we had organised to stay for longer. It is so peaceful to be outside of the town and traveling to and from different rural locations by tuk tuk was a pleasure. Our room was very tastefully decorated with welcoming flowers. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful,but in a natural, genuine way. The food we had at the resort's restaurant was the best we have experienced in Cambodia. The pool is lovely, day or night. If I was ever to come to Battambang again, I would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed in a garden room which was great - butterflies flying by each morning.

Firstly I did enjoy my stay and the staff were both friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The down side for me was the distance to town which was way to far to walk and cost a $3 tuc tuc ride each way. A courtesy tuc was provided by the hotel but only between 6.30 and 9 pm. The restaurant food was good with a wide variety of meals. If your looking for a place to base your tours during the day and to then relax around the pool or bar in the afternoon/evening then this place will be for you. Also ideal for couples.

Room Tip: I had a garden room which had its own verandah with ceiling fan. The lagoon/pond rooms may have bee...
