WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Eco-Friendly: Part of the hotel’s revenue is used to help preserve the surrounding private nature sanctuary, and minimal intervention was practiced during construction, meaning no trees were felled to erect the tents.

Bensley Touch: Bill Bensley has made a name for himself designing hotels of unparalleled luxury with a tastefully eccentric flair.

Location: Situated on an 865-acre private nature sanctuary that sits at the confluence of Kirirom, Bokor, and Cardamom National Parks, the Shinta Mani Wild is an ideal base camp for intrepid travelers venturing into the heart of southwestern Cambodia.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

This ambitious luxury tented camp is renowned hotel designer Bill Bensley's latest creation. Inspired by a Cambodian jungle safari carried out by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the late Sixties, the Shinta Mani Wild blends whimsical touches with safari sensibilities, making for a truly memorable experience. Within the resort’s 15 elevated tent accommodations, bold colors, hardwood furnishings, and rich leathers inspire an atmosphere of adventure and plush style. The luxuriously appointed tents open up to outdoor-decked living areas with bathtubs that provide wonderful views of the surrounding nature. Tents are elevated so as to not disturb the movement of wildlife below, and some are perched over waterfalls and river rapids. Meals are served al fresco at the Waterfall Restaurant. The menu consists of gourmet, seasonal dishes composed of locally sourced ingredients. Khmer classics are heavily featured on the menu, but there are some international options as well. The resort’s best quality, however, may be its location. Scenic river valleys and waterfall-laced rainforest paths are at the guests’ fingertips, and the Shinta Mani Wild is more than equipped to help guests get the most of their experience. There is also a Khmer Spa, an outdoor bar, and an army of private butlers on hand. Moreover, part of the hotel’s revenue is used to help preserve the surrounding private nature sanctuary, and many environmental considerations were made during the construction.
