Zip in, zip up with Shinta Mani Wild –Back to nature Eco-adventures complimented by luxury and exclusivity
A three-night stay will start at £2,288 per person
Includes all meals, resort activities and road transfers
either from or to Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville
Shinta Mani Wild is one of the most anticipated hotel openings in the region for years. Adventurous & totally innovative. Simply elegant and eco-focused, without forsaking contemporary sleep comforts.
Shinta Mani Wild is located in the Southern Cardamon National Park, Cambodia. A 3 hours drive south-west from Phnom Penh. Just under 3 hours drive northeast of the resort city of Sihanoukville.
There are flights into Phnom Penh from all of the main cities in the region. There are also regular flights into Siem Reap. We suggest you stay there for three or four days to enjoy the incredible temples of Angkor and then fly to Sihanoukville.
You have a choice of arrival. A 380m zip wire from the resort entrance over rivers and small waterfalls to deposit you safely in the landing zone just in front of the main building. For those of you who prefer something slightly less elevating, you can take a short four-wheel jeep drive from the gate entrance.
Shinta Mani Wild has 14 one bedroom zip up tents, beautifully decorated using mainly Asian artifacts and decoration lovingly collected from around the region, plus attractive use of local woods and fabrics.
All are spacious with over 100sqm of the total in and out living space, including an en-suite bathroom and viewing deck. In addition, there is one even larger Two Bedroom tent. The tents and the resort have wi-fi, but no TV.
Riverside swimming in the natural ponds
A complete selection of forest adventures and treks and river expeditions
Restaurant where the focus will be on organic cuisine and wines, and as far as possible sustainably sourced plants and vegetables are grown in the resort gardens or wild edible plants foraged daily in the forest
Shinta Mani Wild is essentially adult-focused, although children over 13 years are accepted.
Jackie Onassis travelled through this region with the former King of Cambodia way back in 1967. Much of the style, particularly the luxurious tent interiors, have been lovingly recreated from pictures of her time here.
In keeping with Bill Bensley’s thoughts on responsible and sustainable tourism, the resort is intended to appeal to those who enjoy the beauty of the destination without disturbance of nature. You are encouraged to interact with genuine curiosity with local villagers, taking it beyond an Instagram opportunity.
A Few Suggestions
We like the idea of combining the resort as part of a tour around the region. If you are staying in Siem Reap we suggest Shinta Mani Angkor – Bensley Collection, a selection of stunning villas, each with their own pool located in the heart of the city. You also have a choice of the more rustic and rural Phum Baitang. In Phnom Penh, we like The Bale for its luxury and quiet riverside location. The Rosewood is recommended for its high rise sophistication.
We do not suggest you stay in Sihanoukville as it is dominated by low-end Chinese groups. We use it as an entry point to travel onto the much more exclusive offshore islands where we like The Royal Sands Koh Rong, Song Saa or The Six Senses. Ask us for details.
Other Bill Bensley inspired properties in the region include Shinta Mani Shack in Siem Reap, Rosewood in Luang Prabang and The Siam in Bangkok. He is one of the most acclaimed designers in Asia, combining traditional themes with lavish splashes of vibrant colours.
