Around the world with Bill Bensley

Each of my paintings has a specific purpose. For example, the money raised from one might send four young Cambodians to school for a year, or buy 300 bicycles for schoolchildren


Glam, green and doing good

In my mind, I can’t help but wonder what a hundred Bensley properties instead of two would accomplish here, spread across Cambodia, protecting, nourishing, transforming a nation.

Ginger, honey and herbal wine: inside the wonderful world of Khmer healing

From her base deep in the Cambodian rainforest near Siem Reap and the mighty Angkor Wat temple complex, Solveig has made it her mission to explore the history of Khmer healing.

Bensley Collection Pool Villas

This extraordinary property in the heart of Siem Reap, the brainchild of famed hotel architect Bill Bensley, has impressed and astonished discerning guests since opening in December 2017, whilst continuing to deliver the highest levels of design, privacy and service in equal measures. Our staycation at this gilded palace playground was truly memorable on many levels. This is a unique option in Siem Reap that will impress even the toughest of nuts to crack with its’ secluded location, stylish interiors and ‘plant-forward’ food philosophy from Executive Chef Chanrith.

Laying the foundation for prosperity at Siem Reap's Shinta Mani Hotels

Today, Shinta Mani Hotels fully support the Shinta Mani Foundation, with 100 per cent of all donations providing direct assistance to underprivileged Cambodians. So, when you choose to stay at any Shinta Mani Hotel, you are already contributing to the development of Cambodia.

Shinta Mani Hotels

Shinta Mani Hotels are designed by co-owner Bill Bensley whom Architectural Digest calls ‘a pioneer in sustainable hotel design.’ Each small property reflects its natural and cultural environment, providing heartfelt hospitality that supports the people, animals and ecosystems of Cambodia through the Shinta Mani Foundation.


My Cambodian Adventure

From the ancient Khmer art details of King Jayavarman's robes to the striking black and white floor tiles, the design is very fetching; instead of occupying maximum horizontal space, Bensley's Villa plays more with vertical height, bringing to life a certain kind of swag.

The wild side of Cambodia

Ein Paradies wie aus dem Dschungel-Bilderbuch: An der Nahtstelle zwischen drei Nationalparks verbindet Shinta Mani Wild Abenteuer-Urlaub mit ökologischen und sozialen Aktivitäten. Die Lage ist wahrhaft berauschend, und wer sich traut, schwebt per Seilrutsche zur Rezeption.
