Due to open in late 2018 Shinta Mani Wild – Bensley Collection is sure to be a great addition to Cambodia’s Shinta Mani collection, and this time located outside of Siem Reap in the south west wilderness area.
Rosie is here to help give you the inside track.
There are to be just sixteen custom designed tents at the camp, all positioned, designed and overseen by the owner and renowned designer Bill Bensley. The tents will be perched on the edge of the rivers and waterfalls which flow through the camp and therefore enjoy spectacular views and offer a real back to nature experience.
Due to its flora and fauna rich location Shinta Mani Wild will focus its dining experience on locally sourced, fresh and sustainable produce. This will be enjoyed in the Waterfall Restaurant which will have great views over the biggest waterfall in camp, and afterwards guests can sip on a drink or two surrounded by greenery in the Landing Zone Bar.
Located on the border of the three national parks - Kirirom, Bokor and Cardamom - which make up Cambodia's remote wilderness area, the camp will have a plethora of nature and wildlife focused activities available to guests. Since the area is home to wild elephants, bears, gibbons and tigers many of the activities will focus on tracking these animals with dedicated rangers and conservation experts. There will also be the opportunity to take a day trip on the extensive waterways around camp, on one of the private Bensley designed luxury boats. For those wishing to take things a little easier the Boulders Spa will offer a full range of treatments which can be enjoyed in the tranquillity of the forest surroundings.
Why we love it
The winning combination of Shinta Mani and Bill Bensley, plus a beautiful wilderness location, has us very, very excited for the opening of this luxury camp!
