Well where to start. I am based in Sihanoukville and was browsing through the newest addition of the Coastal Guide a free travel hand book here. I was looking at things to do in Kampot and came across a hidden Wat that was not in the last edition. The opposite full page advert was for Ganesha. The advert was very nice and I rang and booked in for 2 nights with my parents 1st time from the UK. We stayed 3. Would have stayed more. After a busy high season here it took a few meals of great fresh food and a few cans to unwind. I had booked 2 riverside bungalows Urts and walking over the gang plank to these round places to sleep I did not know what to expect at all. You enter the room and the bed is set perfectly so that you can lie down and look over the palms. Mosquito coils with lighter, bottled water, fresh towels, stand up fan, mosquito net. The attention to detail was just spot on. My Parents loved it. Burt the dog is great. Emmanuelle (be met) and Stephanie are great hosts and really help you to chill out and they run a great place and restaurant. Try the Crying Cauliflower if you are brave. I certainly cried for sure. My father had fried veggies with cashews and he said it was the best meal he had in Cambodia. I moved to the house for our last night in a double room for just $8.00. The views are fantastic all around this location. Great for photo's at dusk. Ganesha is located between a Khmer Cham Village and Khmer Buddhist Village and they hire from both so you get a real mix on the menu. Could not fault it at all. Waking with call to prayer at 5.30am with the wildlife then prayer at 6.00am was just amazing. I will certainly be back and I would recommend this to any like minded stressed soul. All the best to you 2. Thank you for a great time. Nick.
