Shinta Mani Angkor
Siem Reap

The Shinta Mani Angkor is a boutique hotel created by one of the world’s most lauded hotel designers (and one of our favourites), Bill Bensley.

Located in the cultural heart of Siem Reap, the hotel showcases 39 state-of-the art designed rooms and public spaces in an Angkorian-inspired design. Style and design are at the core of this hotel. The combined effect of Bensley’s tongue-in-cheek and quirky design details create an eclectic and chic boutique hotel that exudes peace and tranquillity. Each of the sleek black and white colour-coordinated rooms come with minimalist bathrooms and a rain shower. The standard rooms are comfortable but rather compact.

One would imagine that, due to the size of the property, there would have many more rooms, but Bensley has managed to keep the exclusive vibe, and walking through the hotel gives the feeling that one is walking around a modern temple complex, surrounded by grand palatial pillars and long polished concrete hallways. Artwork dotted throughout the hotel showcase black and white photographs of Angkor Wat, complimenting the modern, minimalist and chic interiors, and handcrafted lamps and accessories add a traditional Khmer touch. There is also a small pool in the centre of the hotel and relaxing spa to unwind in.

Shinta Mani Angkor has a foundation which is located within the hotel and is a leader in responsible tourism through its not for profit component, the Shinta Mani Foundation. The core focus is on the three areas of education, small business start-ups and health care for those unable to get full education and it's inspiring to see. Guests of Shinta Mani Angkor are also able to use the facilities at Shinta Mani Angkor – Bensley Collection (the first property directly operated by Bensley) and the Shinta Mani Shack, both located just two minutes’ walk from Shinta Mani Angkor.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
