Overview

Shinta Mani Shack is an upmarket boutique hotel situated in the popular tourist hub of Siem Reap, northwest Cambodia. This chic, stylish property enjoys a tranquil setting in the town’s French Quarter yet is only a few minutes’ walk from vibrant shops, markets, and restaurants, and 15 minutes from the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Angkor Wat. Shinta Mani Shack offers excellent service along with 62 well-appointed rooms, a fabulous swimming pool and a restaurant nestled within leafy tropical gardens. A peaceful oasis in a great central location, it will appeal to travellers at the higher end of the budget.

Designed by US architect Bill Bensley, Shinta Mani Shack is built around a verdant central courtyard filled with tropical plants. Guest spaces include the hotel restaurant, Bai Tong, which offers both indoor and alfresco seating, with an all-day menu spanning Khymer and international cuisine. Drinks and light snacks are available throughout the day at the superb pool flanked by loungers, which provides a refreshing welcome, particularly after a busy day’s sightseeing. Additionally, guests are invited to enjoy the restaurant, bar, and spa at the hotel’s smaller sister establishment, Shinta Mani Angkor, located across the street.

Accommodation comprises 62 spacious and contemporary rooms decorated with bespoke modern artwork. All rooms have king or twin beds, and an ensuite bathroom with a rainfall shower. Each room comes with a minibar, hot drink facilities, satellite TV, and Wi-Fi. A number of generously sized suites offer extra living space, with separate sleeping and lounge areas, and their spacious bathrooms have a separate shower and bathtub. Outside each room is a private balcony or terrace overlooking the pool and gardens.

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.
