Shinta Mani Shack
Siem Reap

Shinta Mani Shack is a stylish boutique hotel in Siem Reap. As soon as you enter the lobby you are reminded that this is no ordinary hotel, for it is designed by the renowned designer Bill Bensley who is known for his unusual and innovative designs. Shinta Mani Shack has not escaped his creativity; think bright colours, neon signs, wild sculptures, and of course… monochrome stripes everywhere.

The 62 rooms and suites are playful in style, with design features such as custom-made iron beds and mirrored walls. All face the central courtyard, where you’ll find not a normal blue swimming pool, but a large black and white striped pool: trust us, a swimming pool is essential in this part of Cambodia where temperatures often soar.

We particularly recommend the Poolside Garden Rooms as these ground floor rooms allow direct access to the pool through a set of French doors; ideal for relaxing in between temple sightseeing. If you would like a bit more space, then go for the one of the hotel’s suites.

Delicious Khmer and international food can be eaten at the hotel’s restaurant Baitong, and guests of Shinta Mani Shack may also like to visit Kroya, a restaurant specialising in Khmer food located just across the road at the sister hotel, Shinta Mani Angkor. Food here is especially mouthwatering, and will give you a taste of traditional local dishes.

By staying at a Shinta Mani hotel, you will help out local communities through the Shinta Mani Foundation. Started by a Cambodian businessman, the foundation aims to improve the lives of disadvantaged Cambodians through education and training. They run a free hospitality training school, as well as other education schemes. The foundation also provides loans to entrepreneurs wishing to start small businesses.

Shinta Mani Shack is perfect for those looking for a small, stylish boutique hotel in a convenient location in Siem Reap. It is about a 15 minute walk, or a 5 minute remorque (tuk-tuk) ride, to the night market and bar area.

Client Testimonials

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
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
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
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
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
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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- 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
