Country Side Adventure

The ox cart is used in Cambodia both as a means of travel and as a mode of tractor for the locals in harvesting their crops- usually rice or cassava. Pulled by an ox guided by someone with a short rod to direct him, the ox cart is a gentle rolling ride. Tours and excursions can be arranged for guests looking to have a better understanding of the local lifestyle and see the villages first hand. The cart will roll along clay roads and across busier intersections giving guests a relaxed ride while learning about local customs and the home life of the Khmer people from our experienced guides.



Khmer Wine Making

Cambodia is a very traditional country with culture going back more than a thousand years. The Khmer people pride themselves on their long history, resilience, and traditions. Among the most popular traditions are those that celebrate important events in their lives and a part of those celebrations include imbibing of traditionally made beverages. Rice Wine is most popular.



Shinta Mani Foundation Organic Farm

The Shinta Mani believes in food safety and seeks to establish a model farming practice. Through a partnership with the World Vegetable Center and USAID we have established an experimental farm to test more hardy varieties of traditional Khmer crops. We are growing vegetables that grow better, are more pest resistant, and do better in extreme weather conditions. We are proud that we are doing so without the aid of pesticides and an excess of fertilizers. Instead we are using age old practices of specific seed selection combined with crop rotation and natural pest repellants such as planting Marigolds or using Citronella extracts to ward off pests.

shinta mani angkor Pool Bar

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.

The 39-rooms are made up of four different types; Superior, Superior Pool Side, Deluxe and Deluxe Living. The Superior Rooms are wonderfully contemporary with modern art, large comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. A step up are The Deluxe Rooms that are in the new wing; the second floor rooms have views of the pool and the internal garden, whereas the ground floor rooms look onto the leafy gardens.

Small amounts of ingredients with intriguing textures, complex aromas and fresh exhilarating flavors create a distinctly light, delicate and healthy cuisine. Rice is an important component of Khmer culture, and is served alongside fish and shell fish, both fresh from the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers.

There’s a soothing spa, two bars, a restaurant and a refreshing pool. Service is prompt but never pushy. Besides the pool, a spa with four dedicated rooms offers aromatherapy massages, body wraps, body scrubs, hand and foot care and therapeutic facials. A small business centre also serves as a common room where guests who have checked out can wait for their onward transport, check email, watch movies or indulge in a book.
