Shinta Mani Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Shinta Mani Angkor is an upscale boutique hotel created by acclaimed architect Bill Bensley, showcasing just 39 contemporary designed rooms and public spaces in an Angkorian-inspired design. Previously known as Shinta Mani Club, it enjoys a tranquil and leafy setting within the French Quarter of Siem Reap – just a 15 minute Remork ride from the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat.

The Shinta Mani Shack Angkor is a boutique resort centrally located in the leafy French Quarter between The Royal Gardens and the Old Market Area just 15 minutes from Angkor Wat. The courtyard-style resort’s 62 rooms enjoy a surprisingly different “Bensley twist” with direct access or first floor balcony views over the stunning swimming pool and flourishing tropical gardens. Four additional suites offer expansive rooms and balconies; two suites overlook the pool while the other two have views over the leafy streetscape.
An exclusive collection of super luxe hotels and resorts resulting from acclaimed American designer and architect Bill Bensley. Recognised for his distinctive, elegant deco inspired design, Bensley is the creative force behind many of Asia’s most celebrated and beautiful hotels, resorts and residences. The first Resort under the Bensley Collection brand, Shinta Mani Angkor – Bensley Collection, will be joined in December 2018 by Shinta Mani Wild – Bensley Collection, a private sanctuary like no other, located in the remote jungle terrain of Kirirom.
Shinta Mani Foundation, Cambodia
An integral part of the Shinta Mani collation is the Shinta Mani Foundation, which seeks to be a leader in responsible tourism. The goal of the Shinta Mani Foundation is to enhance the lives of the individuals in the local communities where the resorts operate – by increasing their human capital and providing them the tools to overcome the constraints of poverty. http://shintamanifoundation.org
