Much like its sister hotel, Shinta Mani Shack (formerly Shinta Mani Resort) provides arguably one of the most contemporary and design-focused places to stay in Siem Reap. The resort is walking distance of the old market, cafés and bars, and just a 15 minute drive from the temples of Angkor.
This stylish and modern courtyard-style resort boasts 62 rooms and one suite, all of which have first floor balcony views or a private terrace with direct access to the large swimming pool and tropical gardens. The contemporary design cues of award-winning US architect Bill Bensley permeates throughout the property, with heavy monochrome interiors and exclusively created artwork in each room.
Bai Tong offers all day dining, with a choice of indoor and outdoor seating areas from which to enjoy international fare as well as Khmer street food. Or for something different, pop across the road to sister hotel, Shinta Mani Angkor, for their Kroya Restaurant and Bensley's Bar. Similarly, as well as the pool and gardens to lounge by in the resort, guests have the added benefit of the facilities of its sister property which includes use of the Spa.
Shinta Mani strongly supports responsible tourism through their Shinta Mani Foundation. A stay here assists the on-site hospitality training school for the less fortunate and disadvantaged children in the local community, with a percentage of the daily room rate going to the foundation to support their activities. Guests can visit the Development Centre or speak to staff about how they can make a difference.
