Although simply decorated, they have all the contemporary fixtures you’d hope for.
The swimming pool is a focal point of the resort, offering a tropical oasis to escape to with attentive staff on hand. Maisons Wat Kor is full of character, and makes you feel grounded - a great place to stay to get to know Cambodia’s rural side.

Discover what to expect from staying at Maisons Wat Kor
Being out in the countryside and seeing local life first hand is humbling. While the cities of Cambodia are packed with excitement, history and adventure, exploring further afield adds another element to your Cambodian discovery. Getting to know the locals who live here, and being welcomed by a small community, helps you understand their history and culture in a way you couldn’t from reading a book.
Wat Kor’s beautiful countryside is excellent for walks, cycling and kayaking, and a complimentary tuk tuk is available for trips into central Battambang. It’s possible that the hotel's charm and characteristics may make you feel so cosy and homely you won’t want to leave, but it will be worth it when you do. The local area is ideal for exploring local life and surrounding temples.
You may be looking to add another element to your family trip; something to keep the kids interested and active. Maison Wat Kor offers flexible family accommodation with interconnecting room options, and a lesson in Cambodian culture at the same time. Stay in the authentically built houses, teach the kids about the history and culture that surrounds them, and head out into the countryside to cycle or have a race in the kayaks! A fun way to get back to nature.
