Holidays in a dreamlike environment and at the same time doing something useful for the development of Cambodia: not a contradiction, but our philosophy in the award-winning Farmhouse Resort, which is currently our most important source of income and our largest training company. Once you’ve been here, you’ll want to come back. An oasis of well-being that is a bit off the beaten track of traditional Cambodian tourism, but thanks to its integration into the Smiling Gecko Campus it simply exudes a unique atmosphere.
Bungalows and Suites
Embedded in the Smiling Gecko Campus, the park-like resort is a place of heavenly tranquility where the Smiling Gecko Story can be perfectly experienced. The farmhouse has 24 tastefully furnished rooms spread over 12 bungalows in classic Khmer style and 10 brand new suites. All rooms and suites have air conditioning and generous furnishings, such as private terraces or day beds.
The resort’s main restaurant serves typical Cambodian cuisine from morning to night. The breakfast buffet is served here, as well as lunch and dinner in the evening. The latter is regularly enriched by atmospheric pool barbecues and other themed evenings.
With the new restaurant “Un” and the “Chef’s Table”, the hotel has two real fine dining options. This is where the spectacular “New Khmer Cuisine” of our head chef Mariya Un Noun is celebrated. The restaurant is one of the best in the country and the best proof that the Smiling Gecko philosophy works. Because Mariya is a child of the slums and was trained by us.
With a total of 8 treatment rooms, a pool and the adjoining “Sanctuary Café”, our award-winning spa is a real oasis in the middle of a wonderful tropical garden in which we grow rare Cambodian plants, among other things. The spa is definitely another reason to spend a few days at the resort.
Pool Bar and Lounge
With climatic conditions such as those prevailing in Cambodia, the pool is a focal point of every hotel. We are proud that our saltwater pool is particularly beautiful and, with the attached pool bar and lounge, also offers two fantastic opportunities to switch off.
A guided tour of the Smiling Gecko Campus is one of the highlights of a visit to us. But there are also numerous other ways to experience rural Cambodia. Be it a temple tour, a visit to a palm wine factory or a mentally demanding visit to the slums of Phnom Penh.
