Designed to accord with the dreams of architect Bill Bensley, each of the ten walled compounds is surrounded by their own tropical garden and capture the essence of privacy, comfort, and luxury. At 156 square meters, these villas are housed in two pavilions.
Spacious bathrooms overlook the gardens through floor-to-ceiling windows and are fitted with an outdoor bathtub and rain shower. Custom designed furniture, handcrafted light fittings, and exclusive artwork depicting the culture of the Khmer civilization infuse the villa with a distinct style. Moreover, the pampering service of the Bensley Butlers allows guests to get a taste of life as one of that ancient civilization’s kings. The villas’ bedrooms are also fitted with custom tailored Khmer inspired bed sheets, a plethora of different pillows, and a golden bamboo bedside tower containing all essentials for a great night’s sleep. Upon request, a second “sky bed” is set up that provides an ideal nest for romance beneath the stars.
Guests are welcome to use facilities at sister Shinta Mani properties.
In-room Spa Service
Guests are encouraged to enjoy a Khmer massage from the comfort of their own villa. The Bensley Butlers can provide detailed explanations of the variety of treatments available, recommending which will best reduce individual stress and restore inner balance.
