Bensley Collection Shinta Mani Wild

Bensley Collection Shinta Mani Wild Pool
Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild is a luxury tented camp set amongst 400 acres of lush forest overlapping 3 national parks. This is the first private wildlife and nature reserve in Cambodia, located around 3 hours from Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville. Bensley Collection – Shinta Mani Wild boasts a spectacular location, tucked into the wildlife corridor which runs between Bokor and Kirirom national parks. Famed hotel designer and architect Bill Bensley has teamed-up with the local government and conservation organisations to protect this area from poaching and logging, whilst also providing a superb site for one of Cambodia’s most hotly anticipated properties. The 15 luxurious tents are raised above the ground, suspended over the edge of the waterfalls to allow the natural migratory movements of the forest inhabitants to continue below, and to provide sweeping views across the forest and river valley. Each tent is luxuriously designed in true Bensley style with tasteful local colours and fabrics, and fascinating curios to recall the age of explorers and la belle époque. Guests can choose from a Wild Tent, a Waterfall Tent, or an expansive Two Bedroom Tent, and indulge in luxurious extras such as an outdoor freestanding bathtub. A Bensley Butler will be on hand to assist with all requests. Read More...

Shinta Mani Angkor

shinta mani angkor Kroya
Shinta Mani Angkor (formerly known as Shinta Mani Club) is a sleek and chic boutique hotel located in the old quarter of Siem Reap, just a moment’s walk or cycle from the night market, shops and restaurants. Designed by interior designer, Bill Bensley, with a palette of grey, black and white, it feels chic and modern. The contemporary features contrast beautifully with some of the dramatic architecture inspired by the surrounding temples of Angkor. With just 39 rooms in total the property feels intimate, yet there is a good range of facilities with a soothing spa and a cool pool located within a gorgeous tropical courtyard. Dining is a real treat here; Kroya, which means ‘food’ in Khmer boasts incredible fusion cuisine, we really recommend the traditional fish amok or the innovative seven course Khmer tasting menu. There’s also the laid back Bensley’s Bar, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink, and a poolside bar to boot. In town, Shinta Mani owns AHA, a restaurant serving wonderful tapas options for lunch and dinner. This is just a few minutes away. We love that by staying in Shinta Mani Angkor, or their sister property, Shinta Mani Shack (formerly Shinta Mani Resort) you support a wide range of responsible tourism initiatives and outreach programs for disadvantaged children.
