A Perfect Hotel View in Cambodia

When you stay at the Shinta Mani Wild, be ready to experience a window to one of the most mesmerizing jungles in the world. Imagine waking up to the vivid green colors of the jungle banks and the soothing rush of the white water beneath you. Suspended above the banks of the white water Thmor Rung River, visitors to Shinta Mani Wild are struck with views at every turn that are unlike any you experience in everyday life.

The Most Perfect View

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.

Shinta Mani Wild, A Bensley Collection

Nestled between two National Parks, this property is a combination of artistic expression turned architecture and an immersive experience in the depths of nature. Wake up on the banks of a wild river and walk along its deepest paths surrounded by lush vegetation. An experience that connects all your senses with the purest wilderness.

Cambodge, un lodge pour préserver la forêt

Au cœur de la jungle, dans les montagnes des Cardamomes, le Shinta Mani Wild a vu le jour pour sauvegarder un territoire de 160 hectares du déboisement et de la chasse sauvage. Son raffinement lui a permis d'entrer, dès son ouverture, en 2018, dans la liste des établissements d'exception.

There aren't many hotel designers whose creations have genuinely made my face hurt from smiling. [...] Shinta Mani Wild is an even deeper immersion into nature - specifically, the lush wilderness of south-western 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

Entering deeper into Cardamon National Forest, the largest in Cambodia and the second largest virgin rainforest in Southeast Asia, I'm eager to check-in but felt a little daunted. Shinta Mani Wild has abandoned conventional desk formalities, and guests simply check-in via a 400-metre zip line, which just happens to be the longest in Cambodia.

Bill Bensley Teams Up With Australian Fine Jeweller Kate McCoy

“I’m absolutely thrilled about this unique collaboration with Kate”, says Bill Bensley – she really has understood the concept of what we are doing here and created an incredible range of pieces to complement the environment. There is something for everyone, from everyday pieces to elaborate and rare pieces. I’m tickled pink with her homage to my much-loved signature black and white stripe design motif – thank you Kate” - Bill Bensley

An adventure in Cambodia

The emphasis of this unique glamping destination is on the word ’wild’, so despite the luxurious nature of one’s tent and the top notch service and cuisine, it may only appeal to the more adventurous souls amongst you. Personally, I had a lot of fun and absolutely loved it, so I encourage you to move out of your comfort zone and experience it for yourself.
