Sourced materials and local craftmenships

Emphasizing on the beautiful and spacious natural environment, each unit has been designed to create a personal and private space for you. We did this by placing our 11 units on over 40 000m square of land granting an isolated retreat to reenergize in an tropical and lush environment. The units are built with locally sourced materials and by local craftsmen, and so every unit has it's own personality.

How to get there!

Ganesha Kampot is located just 4 kms outside of Kampot. We are about 150 Kms south of Phnom Penh and 110 kms east of Sihanoukville.
There will be many tuktuks and motodops waiting for you upon your arrival in Kampot. A tuktuk to Ganesha will cost $4 and a motodop $1.50 for one person, or $2 for two. The trip is 4km, and please appreciate that late at night the prices may be slightly more.
If you are driving, then the best way to reach us is to head along National Road 3 towards Phnom Penh. Turn left at the Ganesha sign through the Pagoda archway. Continue to the end of the Pagoda road, and then take a right. From there on, on both routes, Ganesha is sign posted at each turn, so just keep following these until you reach us!
There is parking on site for motos and cars.
