The story of Shinta Mani

Shinta Mani first opened its doors in June 2003 as an 18 room Guest House and introducing a Hospitality Center to encourage under privileged youth in Cambodia to start a career in Hospitality. After renovation in 2012, by hotel architect-designer Bill Bensley, Shinta Mani transformed into a 39 room upscale designed boutique hotel serving guests from all over the world in what has become a premier hotel destination for travellers in South East Asia.

Located in a quiet and leafy setting within the French Quarter of Siem Reap, only a 15 minute Remork ride from the magnificent Temples of Angkor Wat. Our guests enjoy a peaceful oasis which is within walking distance to the Old Market where plenty cafes and bars can be found while only being footsteps away from the tranquility of the nearby riverfront.

The designer

The striking décor is provided by Asia’s foremost hotel architect-designer, Bangkok-based Bill Bensley. Bensley has a flamboyant style and fastidious attention to detail.

In Shinta Mani Club, Bensley has created a cool, sophisticated laid back oasis enlivened by funky art, quaint vintage sculptures and beautifully handcrafted lotus flower displays.
