Out of town and a little off the beaten track, Ganesha Resort is a retreat favoured by long-staying artists and writers, as well as returning guests.
A very large plot ensures privacy in your chosen accommodation, surrounded by beautiful plants and a lawn that begs to be sunbathed on. The main house, an imposing wooden, stone and thatch affair, has the cheapest rooms and an excellent restaurant with a focus on natural, local produce and plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. The locally-made ice cream menu, with 24 flavours, will keep you busy for a few days. For a little more isolation, choose a round 'yurt' by the small mangrove lagoon or a two-person stilted tribal hut with views over the paddy fields to the mountains. For groups of four to eight people, the Khmer wooden house or the three-storey stone-built tower provide a stay with plenty of personal space. Due to the stilts, steps and proximity to water, most of the accommodation is not suitable for young children.
Note, Ganesha Kampot eco guest house and more requested that we remove any phone number, email address and all pricing details from this review. Please see their website for more information.
