Hotel Review: Shinta Mani Shack Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia


Book A Stay

Located in north west Cambodia, the popular destination of Siem Reap is known as the gateway to the epic, UNESCO World Heritage ancient temples of Angkor. The town itself is a chic, cultural haven so make sure you allow enough time in your visit to soak up Siem Reap as well as Angkor. Stay somewhere beautiful and serene to give yourself time to pause and reflect; Shinta Mani Shack Angkor does the job perfectly.


The resort is centrally located in the leafy French Quarter between The Royal Gardens and the Old Market Area of Siem Reap, just 15 minutes from Angkor Wat. You really couldn’t pick a better spot.

Style & Character

The style of the resort is rather fabulous. The boutique resort is a relaxing garden oasis with a striking courtyard design. Inside a chic treat awaits; there is a retro feel with some fabulous features including a mirrored feature wall, custom-designed iron bed and handcrafted light fittings.

Service & Facilities

There is a stunning outdoor saltwater swimming pool which is surrounded by the flourishing tropical gardens. When you return from a hot day exploring, relax those aching bones at the Shinta Mani Spa; a sanctuary of serenity and a haven of refuge where your body has its wellbeing and health restored, all ready for another day out tomorrow!
The service is first-class, you can tell by how immaculate the entire resort is and by how beautifully maintained it is that the staff have a real feeling of pride in the resort. They welcome you with open arms and are efficient and courteous throughout. The resort is proud of its culture of ‘Open Doors, Open Hearts’. This culture underlines their commitment to responsible tourism and they are passionate supporters of those less fortunate in their community.


There are 66 elegant and contemporary rooms including 4 suites. If you’re on the ground floor you have direct access to that swimming pool in the Poolside Garden Rooms and if you’re on the first floor you have your own intimate balcony with heavenly views over the pool in the Poolview Rooms; you really can’t go wrong. The retro and spacious Junior Suites have an even better pool view being located on the second floor. Upgrade to an Executive Suite for a separate living area and balcony views of the urban streetscape. All the rooms feature artwork exclusively created for Shinta Mani by Bensley Design Studios, Bangkok which adds a stylish and personal touch to your experience.

Food & Drink

Mealtimes are truly celebrated here. There are five restaurants and bars so lots of choice including international comfort food and colourful Khmer street food! All the establishments use only the freshest local, imported and organic ingredients, prepared at their prime, to satisfy even the most avid gourmet. You can also enjoy poolside refreshments, take a cookery class or just enjoy a cocktail and tapas at the hip bar which overlooks the inner courtyard.
