Tucked away in Siem Reap's leafy French Quarter, you'll find the pretty courtyards of Shinta Mani Shack. Designed by renowned architect and landscape designer Bill Bensley, known for his iconic designs of luxury resorts, this gorgeous property is comprised of 62 guestrooms, balcony views, a swimming pool and tropical gardens.
The Shinta Mani Shack garden oasis is located near to the Royal Gardens and the Old Market, only 15 minutes away by tuk-tuk from the ancient temple complex of Angkor.
Choose from four room types: executive suite (largest), junior suite, poolview room and poolside garden room. All rooms feature a rain shower, bathtub and either a private terrace of balcony, whilst both suites also include spacious living areas.
This hotel has always had responsible values at its core. In 2003, the first Shinta Mani property opened as an 18-room guesthouse and hospitality centre, which supported underprivileged young people in the area start a career in hospitality. Learn more about the Shinta Mani Foundation in our Why Wayfairer section below, or learn about the great work the foundation does for yourself with a CSR trip to a local village, arranged by the hotel.
However, Shinta Mani Shack does not compromise on luxury, with classic Bensley twists such as mirrored feature walls, custom-designed iron king beds and handcrafted light fittings adding artistic flair to decor inspired by nature. The property is home to an award-winning spa that offers treatments based on traditional Khmer healing rituals, as well as selection of dining options to choose from (we recommend the Tasting Menu at Kroya for a sampling of Khmer cuisine), including cookery classes led by the hotel's Executive Chef.
A stay at the Shinta Mani Shack is both indulgent and guilt-free, as your custom helps support the local community and create a positive impact.
