Farmhouse Resort & Spa


Holidays in a dreamlike environment whilst at the same time doing something useful for the development of Cambodia: not a contradiction, but our philosophy in the luxurious 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. It’s a location off the beaten track of traditional Cambodian tourism, but which is integrated into the Smiling Gecko Campus and simply radiates a unique atmosphere.
Facilities and Rooms
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 34 tastefully furnished rooms spread over 17 bungalows in classic Khmer style. All rooms have air conditioning with generous furnishings, such as their own terraces or day beds.
Farmhouse Restaurant
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.
Restaurant “Un” (new from Spring 2023)
With the new restaurant “Un” and the “Chef’s Table”, the hotel will have two real fine dining options in the future. This is where the spectacular “New Khmer Cuisine” of our head chef Mariya Un Noun is celebrated. The restaurant will be among the best in the country right from the start. For us, this is best proof that the Smiling Gecko philosophy works – Mariya is a child of the slums and was trained by us.
Sanctuary Spa
With a total of 8 treatment rooms, a private pool and the adjoining “Sanctuary Café”, our new spa is a real oasis in the middle of a wonderful tropical garden where 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
In Cambodian climatic conditions, the pool is a central focal point of any hotel. We are proud to say that our saltwater pool is particularly beautiful and, with the adjoining pool bar and lounge, also offers two fantastic ways to unwind.
Local Attractions
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.


These are images that make you want to stay at the Smiling Gecko Campus. It will be a relaxing and, above all, very meaningful holiday.
