Beautiful, tranquil hotel with large room. ”
my friend and i were travelling in cambodia and we had arrived in battambang after a remarkable 10 hour river trip from siem reap. we were exhausted from the boat trip and our previous punishing schedule round angkor wat temples. we had booked a night at another hotel in battambang from where we had planned to continue to the thai border. having spent one night at the other hotel, we decided that we needed to spend a further night to recoup and nurse the colds we had brought with us from the uk. unfortunately the first hotel was fully booked. it didn't take minutes to access the agoda website, find the sanctuary and book i2 rooms. 30 minutes later we were scooped up by a tuk tuk and delivered to this delightful, calm oasis. we had a huge room each - dark wood and white furnishings - a truly chilled out experience. we ate at the sanctuary and were a little surprised to find that the prices in the restaurant were akin to uk rates - something we hadn't found elsewhere.
One of the nicest places I've ever stayed”
I really can't say enough nice things about The Sanctuary Villa. Upon our arrival, we were brought a flavored iced tea, fruit plate and cool cloths to wash with. The grounds are just lovely – plants and flowers everywhere, rich drapes hanging from gazebo-like buildings, statues around every corner and a fantastic ambiance. Our bungalow was wonderful – huge windows throughout, nice TV, minibar, enormous bed, walk-in closet, asian-style couches and beautifully tiled floors. The bathroom, if possible, was even nicer. To the left was a jacuzzi-style bathtub and sink. To the right, the toilet and a very large shower. If you walked straight in, there was a door leading to your own private outside area. In addition to how nice the property was, the staff members were extremely helpful in having our laundry done, booking our bus and generally looking out for us. Had we not already planned to be in another city, we would have stayed a few more days in Battambang just for the hotel!
The perfect place to relax”
We had been in Siem Reap for a few days and wanted to experience another quieter part of Cambodia so we choose Battambang. The Sanctuary Villa really is a sanctuary, a place away from it all. The design of the place is idyllic, with large well equipped rooms and huge comfy beds. We also had a private terrace with table and chairs and a massive outdoor bath. The staff were wonderful and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, we really felt looked after. It's a pity our stay was so short, if we knew better we would have planned a longer stay. We will definitely come back to the Sanctuary Villa again and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Very nice villas and peaceful atmosphere”
Set in a residential neighborhood about 2 km from the center of town, the Sanctuary Villas is a very nice place to relax. A better option than the backpacker oriented hotels in the center of Battambang. Service is attentive, hotel grounnds are impeccable. Hot water was a bit spotty (sometimes had it, sometimes just luke warm), but what do you expect in Battambang? :-)
"Beautiful Hotel with friendly staff"”
We have visited Cambodia several times before, however, this was our first trip to Battambang. Upon arriving at this hotel we we warmly greated by the friendly staff and their big welcoming smiles. We immediately loved the atmosphere of this hotel! The beautiful landscaping surrounds the property and the rooms are big, luxurious and comfortable. The swimming pool area is absolutely beautiful and a great place to rest and relax. If we have the opportunity to visit this area again we certainly will stay at "The Sanctuary Villa".
This hotel is Peaceful and Relaxing ”
My family has now lived in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for about four years. We have traveled to many areas in Cambodia, however, this was our first visit to Battambang. We were actually joining a friends wedding in a village about an hour away and decided to take a mini vacation and check the area out. I reseached places to stay on the internet and once I found information regarding The sanctuary Villa I immediately knew this was the place for us to stay. Since we have lived in Cambodia we were abe to communicate with the friendly staff in their native language of Khmer. However, the staff spoke English very well therefore communication is not a prblem! We were thrilled with our stay and look forward to visiting this location again.
A beautiful little hotel”
I liked this villa retreat very much. Its close to the city with a free tut tut driver to and from city center. The staff are lovely and is well organized with the staff and for all our needs. The gardens are beautiful, the room are lovely and clean, and the dining area is a pleasure. The pool is clean, refreshing and peaceful. The grounds are secure. The outdoor spa is private to your villa. The whole grounds are very tasteful. My partner loved staying here. We had a honest, reliable and very nice tut tut driver. Mr Sam we called him. All in all we had a lovely stay with no complaints. I would recommend The Sanctuary Villa its worth very cent. Very pleased with all it offered.
after a very long (9 hrs.) trip on the boat from siem reap, we arrived at the battambang dock to the crazy throng of tuc tuc drivers vying for a fare. the tuc tuc from sanctuary villa found us and brought us to the off the beaten track b&b. it really was a lovely welcome after a long travel day. and we were told that we would have a "complimentary" 30 minute massage whenever we would like to schedule it. what a treat. they also offer free tuc tucs to town. the restaurant was very good although a bit inconsistent. one day very good pad thai. the next, not. the pool is great for cooling off.. all the staff was very friendly and helpful. a good pile of dvds was available for use in your private cottage which is a good size with a great bathroom. internet was spotty.
Great hotel - perfect for relaxation”
Sanctuary Villa was a pleasure to stay in. Dara, the owner went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and I am sure he does the same for all his guests. He was informative, helpful beyond and very aware of the elements of excellent customer care. The hotel provides free massages for guests, a return trip into town by jeep daily with local mobiles to arrange your return to the hotel, onward journey arrangements, free internet access and excellent food. I will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Battambang
Absolute heaven! Highly recommended”
we were afraid that 4 nights in one place was too much! not at the santuary it isnt! dane and his team made us instanly welcome. we read some of the negative comments on the introductory presentation! how petty when it was brief and informative, and accompanied by drinks and chilled towelettes. the decor of the entire establishment was awesome. it was very tasteful and elegant, both in the rooms and reception and dining areas. the pool was a godsend too. all the photos on the internet are absolutely representative. our room was delightful. large, sumptous bed. walk-in cupboard, beautifully appointed bathroom, with tub and shower, and a private terrace. air-con was super efficient, and the water hot and plentiful. breakfast was another fantasically relaxing experience. the staff were super efficient, and tried hard to please us. really super people, and probably the nicest overall travel experience that we (as seasoned travellors) have had to date. we have been to more sumptous (and hugely more expensive) places, but this was a treat out of the blue that we were not expecting. infinitely repeatable! we were 5 minutes out of the town centre (imagine those poor people stuck in hot town hotels without our greenery and breeze, not to mention our pool), and we had instant access to a complimentary tuk-tuk when ever we needed it........ thank you sanctuary villa, our entire cambodian experience was sweetened further by our stay with you. well done
Beautiful private oasis”
The Sanctuary Villa is an amazingly beautiful, private oasis in the outskirts of Battambang. The rooms are large, air conditioned and tastefully furnished, with big bathtubs overlooking private backyards. The villa has spectacular gardens, mouthwatering asian and western food, and a lovely pool to cool off in. I honestly don't know how the staff could be any more friendly or helpful.
i just loved everything about the sanctuary villa! this hotel actually exceeded my expectations. on agoda the photographs looked nice, but in reality i thought it was stunningly beautiful and a real treasure. from the beautifully decorated open reception foyer with statues, flowers, silk decorations, ponds, etc. separate villas quietly lined within the grounds. spacious, with the feeling of luxury with a deep bathtub that overlooked a small but private courtyard. huge comfortable bed. dvd player. the staff could not do enough for us. drinks& snack menu by the pool. we dined at the oh yeah restaurant on the premises every night of our three night stay. delicious food. they do have trainees who did the best to fill our orders and gave us excellent service. i would highly recommend the sanctuary villa.
Tranquil relaxing hotel”
My husband and I have lived in Cambodia for a little more than four years and stay very busy with our work in Phnom Penh. We desperately needed a break for some rest and relaxation. After reviewing several place to stay in Battambang we decided on the Sancuary Villa. From the very first moment we entered the property the staff served us and made us feel extreemly welcomed. They gave us first rate care and were willing to help us in any way they possible could. The hotel grounds were absolutely beautiful and lush and our room was wonderful. We had a very relaxing and peaceful four day/four night stay. if we have the opportunity and travel through Battambang again we will certainly stay here again and certainly will recommend it to our friends.
An exceptional getaway”
We stayed at the Sanctuary Villa for 2 nights and from the time of our arrival, we had a most pleasant stay. The Villas are away from the hustle and bustle of the town but yet close enough to get into town either by car or tuk tuk. We would definitely stay again at the Sanctuary Villas if we travel back to Battambang.
We traveled to Battambang by boat (highly recommend) from Siem Reap. We had to stop twice to ask where this hotel was. It is very new and secluded a short distance from down town. With only six Villa's it is small but offers incredible personal service which included a free one hour massage for both my wife and I, and personal vehicle and driver to take us anywhere in the local area we wanted to go. Also a cell phone programmed to call whenever we needed picked up. The room was decorated beautifully. Being that it has only been open a couple months we found a couple things that did not work properly but the staff easily helped us. This Villa has one of only 2 swimming pools in Battambang which was much needed on a warm dusty day. They do have a small restaurant which had the best food we found in all of Cambodia. Both western style and traditional. This is the only place I will stay in Battambang!
A fabulous oasis in Battambang”
the sanctuary villa was a different and much appreciated style of accommodation after staying in hotels while in cambodia... it's relaxing, personal and sooo welcoming! we loved it! our host was a young, good looking and intelligent man oozing charm and helpfulness to make our stay sooo enjoyable... thank you! the sancturary villa is a must for decerning travellers wishing to stay in battambang - oh, but book well in advance as there are only seven fabulous villas available.
Wonderful & relaxing choice in Battambang”
We found the Sanctuary on the Internet and planned to stay 3 nights. After arriving, we knew it was the right decision. Lovely and wonderful place, very new, with big and relaxing rooms. The staff is very attentive and friendly, making the stay a time to remember. After a day out in or around hot & dusty Battambang, it is the best place to relax. It is a bit out of the center but free transfer & pickup is provided at any time, using an old army jeep. Thus, no problem at all to get around and much better than staying directly in the center. The food is great and all extra wishes are taken care of. Definitely worth to stay - we prolonged for another night and had a hard time leaving....
Relaxing, quiet, peaceful”
We had a fantastic stay at The Sanctuary Villa, from being picked up from our bus station office to arranging trips to the Bamboo train and the local circus. The staff are very friendly and opened the kitchen for us in the evening when we had missed a restaurant in town. The hotel is a short 15min walk into central Battambang and all main locations can be reached via a short tuk tuk ride.
"Relaxing & Beautiful Atmosphere"”
my husband and i had stayed in this hotel once before and were delighted with our stay. we had another opportunity to visit battambang again and this immediately was our hotel of choice. we were once agained welcomed by the staffs friendly smiles and desire to serve us. the atmosphere of this hotel truly is a sanctuary! beautiful landscaping surrounds the property and the rooms are luxurious and comfortable. the swimming pool area is a great place to relax, from swimming, to reading or just to catch up on some rest. on this trip we brought another couple and they too had an enjoyable stay. we certainly will stay here again and look forward to the next opportunity we have to visit.
Beautiful little place with amazing food!”
no complaints about this place! the sanctuary villa is located within a walled complex and there are potted plants everywhere, giving it that extra "green" touch. the lotus pond was an extra bonus and at night you can sit outside and listen to the sounds of nature (frogs croaking). located just out of the "center" area of town, but a quick tuk-tuk ride to anywhere you need to go. the tuk-tuk driver we hired was very professional. the first evening they did not have ingredients for a drink that i wanted so they happily went and purchased it the next day. the only thing is a reminder to bring mozzy spray! no mozzy net and they do find ways to attack you in your room.
