Shinta Mani Shack Siem Reap - YSR007

One of the funkiest boutique properties in town, the Shinta Mani Resort is perfect for those looking for a contemporary twist on hotel design. It is located in central Siem Reap?s leafy French Quarter.

This newly renovated hotel has been uniquely designed by Bill Bensley, the Thai-based architect and designer who Time magazine described as the 'king of exotic luxury resorts'.

Set around a beautiful large swimming pool, all rooms have a terrace or first floor balcony looking onto the courtyard and pool. But it is the design that makes this hotel different. Think black and white, bold shapes and huge, mirrored walls, black metal beds that resemble something of a 'pimped' hospital bed and handcrafted light fittings.

Whilst the resort has a lovely restaurant on-site, which offers a good mix of local and international food all day. Guests are also invited to use the Bensley's Bar and the Kroya Restaurant at the resort's sister hotel, the Shinta Mani Club, which is directly opposite the Resort. A luxurious spa is also at the Club for guests to use.

There are three types of room at the resort. The Poolview Rooms which are located on the first floor of the courtyard style resort and all have balcony views over the swimming pool and tropical gardens, while the Poolside Garden Rooms boast private terraces that are within footsteps of the swimming pool. The Junior Suite on the first floor is almost twice as big, with a balcony and a separate sleeping and living room which enjoy a retro feel including mirrored feature wall, custom-designed iron king bed and hand crafted light fittings.

The hotel has a strong focus on responsible tourism and with the Club, over the road, it runs tha Shinta Mani Foundation, which aims to create a lasting and positive impact for the people of Cambodia.
