Battambang Resort is in a lovely situation outside of the town, surrounded by rice fields. The warm hospitality from the staff, along with the hotel’s pleasant grounds, have made this one of the most popular places to stay in and around Battambang.
Guestrooms are simple, clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities that will make you feel right at home, such as tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. Thankfully, all the rooms are air-conditioned, too. Many of the rooms have serene views over the gardens or the hotel’s lake.
The resort has peaceful and fragrant gardens to enjoy and the chef grows ingredients including mangos, bananas, coconut, mint, lemongrass, rocket and basil. The gardens are dotted with hammocks for guests to laze around in, if you don’t feel like lounging by the hotel’s enticing saltwater pool. For something a little unusual, complimentary pedalos are available on the lake. When you’re ready to explore, the Battambang Resort provides free city bikes and free transport to and from Battambang town.
You can dine poolside, or in the hotel’s upstairs restaurant. The menu features both Asian and western food and barbeques can be arranged on request.
This peaceful hotel offers a quiet retreat out of town. It's handy for visiting Battambang's top sights, but perfect if you want the activities of a bigger resort during downtime.
