Ganesha Kampot Eco Guesthouse and More

Reviewed August 9, 2011

We did a lot of reserches before going to stay there and finally we decided to stay in Ganesha Resort. It's the best choice for us since we are travelling as couple.

We stay in the Yurt, just on the river, we love the view from our room very much, every morning, come out of the room look at the green tree just on the band of the river and breath the fresh air. Walking to the main building through the garden was a really good feeling.

The food was a bit expensive compare to the city but it was ok since the resort if far from the city.

We had joined a tour to Bokhor hill during our stay there, just ask the receptionist she will help you with that. I can't remember her name but she was a nice little girl, we did ask her for help with motor bike rentle. If you know how to ride a motor bike, we highly recommend you to rent a motor and explore by yourself. We love the ride through the local village and experience the real Cambodia countryside.

Ganesha Resort is the best place for couple and family stay. We dont mind to stay there again! Highly recommend

Middle of nowhere Cambodia, surrounded by rice fields, a river and noises of nature. A beautiful place to stay with nothing to do but sit and enjoy. Restaurant serves good food and staff are very good. The only stress is how long do we stay! The fire flies read our review and came out to persuade us to stay another night in the yurt.

We stayed in the riverside yurt and it was just wonderful. We were spose to stay for one night but ended up staying for three. Would have stayed longer but had to get to Battambang. We went for a paddle in the boat and it was just so lovely to cruise around on the quiet river. Spent many hours in hammocks just watching the river change directions. food was great and Pierra the manager there could not have been more accomodating she is great! We loved Ganesha and will definatly be back!

Just getting there through the bumpy dirt road and beautiful countryside was an experience.
Friendly host, helpful staff, excellent food. Pet frog in the bath room, geckos in the lounge/common area - a rural delight. Casual and relaxing. Not a lot of mod-cons, but that made it all the more charming.

Needing an escape from the madness that is Phnom Penh I sought out a place that was both removed from the hustle and bustle, as well as beautiful. Ganesha was just that and more. From helping to sort out travel arrangements, to ensuring I was okay when my bus arrived late I found both owner and all who worked extremely kind, thoughtful, and generous. The location is lovely amidst real, rural Cambodia, the food plentiful and incredible, rooms and grounds clean and safe -- the overall feeling is truly perfectly peaceful.

Absolutely no complaints and I hope to make it make ~

we were very happy to come here at the first time, the place is nice, people are fine and nice, but it's more a eco-business guesthouse than a eco lodge... no paper in toilet, no shower, the canoé is 5$ but nobody told you...
every morning the Muslim community pray at 5am... not so nice
The owner is not so nice, for an Indy old fashion man, he judge a lot people, at the end it's not so nice to speak with him...
at least it's too expensive for the services you are supose to have.
i advise you to go to another place, closer to Kampot wich could be better for you and for the atmosphere.

Ganesha is situated in the countryside, its a real bumby ride to go there, the taxidriver looked really worried. We stayed in a Yurta by the river, it was rather new and clean. Nice staff, we felt really welcome.. We borrowed bicycles;for free, and bicycled around the site. Every where people were friendly and all the kids yelled hallo.If you like to meet the local people, this is the place. Food was good. Unfortunately it was the wedding season, so in sorrounding villages they played rather loud music from not so good loudspeakers, and started all over in the morning 06.30 (with prayers).
